Egyptian cotton is widely regarded as the highest quality material for sheets and bed linens. While many brands advertise bedding made from Egyptian cotton, not every product bearing the name is authentic. Recent innovations in DNA science have made it possible to identify genuine Egyptian cotton, weeding out inauthentic products with misleading marketing. Egyptian cotton is undeniably one of the most luxurious bedding materials, but only when it is properly sourced and genuine.

What Is Egyptian Cotton? 

As its reputation might suggest, Egyptian cotton is not the same as other types of cotton. Egyptian cotton is a particular species of cotton grown in Egypt’s Nile region. Egypt’s climate contributes to the cotton fibers growing longer than those produced anywhere else in the world. These long fibers are handpicked so that they remain perfectly in fact before they are spun into extra-fine threads. These threads are then woven into the durable, soft, and high-quality fabric that is used to make Egyptian Cotton linens.

The Advent of Cotton DNA Testing

Where there was once no way to accurately determine which products advertised as genuine Egyptian cotton were truly authentic, new DNA testing has changed the game. Egyptian cotton DNA testing is becoming increasingly more popular, minimizing the frequency with which linens are mislabeled and falsely advertised. Cotton DNA testing makes it easier to identify authentic Egyptian cotton bedding and avoid confusing products that contain small amounts of Egyptian cotton with the real deal.

How to Spot Genuine Egyptian Cotton

When shopping for genuine Egyptian cotton bedding, there are certain ways to spot the real thing and rule out inauthentic linens. Consider three important factors before making any purchase: price, DNA certification, and verification. 


Oftentimes, the price of bedding can be a clear indicator of whether or not it is made from genuine Egyptian cotton. If you spot a price that appears too good to be true, it probably is; you are not like to find genuine Egyptian cotton bedding at rock-bottom prices. Be wary of packaging that claims a product is “Made from Egyptian cotton” or “Made in Egypt” because these are not the same as linens made from 100% long-staple cotton. Authentic Egyptian cotton bedding is always going to be more expensive and command a higher price than those made from other types of cotton. Genuine Egyptian cotton is rare and costly to produce, and the demand for it is high, factors that will always be reflected in the price.

DNA Certification

The most accurate way to confirm that linens are made from genuine Egyptian cotton is to keep an eye out for products that have been DNA tested. Remember that cotton DNA testing is a considerably new technology, which means that not every retailer has had the means or opportunity to test their products. If you do see a DNA certification, you can rest assured that the bedding has been tested and certified as authentic Egyptian cotton grown in Egypt’s Nile region. 


When shopping for genuine Egyptian cotton bedding, look for the logo of a verifying authority like the Cotton Egypt Association, which uses advanced methods to determine a product’s authenticity. While the Cotton Egyptian Association does confirm that a product contains genuine Egyptian cotton, it does not indicate the grade of Egyptian cotton that it contains. Be sure to check that any linens you are considering purchasing use 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton, which is the highest quality.

Why Egyptian Cotton Reigns Supreme

Egyptian cotton bedding is undeniably the most luxurious. Known for being exceptionally soft, incredibly durable, and breathable, Egyptian cotton sheets can instantly elevate the quality of your sleep and create a sense of peace and tranquility in your bedroom. Egyptian cotton bedding can help you sleep more comfortably, keeping you cool throughout the night by allowing air to flow through the sheets.

Unlike other types of cotton bedding, Egyptian cotton is durable and with proper care, it can last for many years. Because Egyptian cotton fibers are woven tightly, they can withstand quite a bit of wear and tear. Egyptian cotton sheets are far less susceptible to pilling than those made from lower-quality materials. Even though genuine Egyptian cotton sheets can be expensive, they can ultimately save you money over time, as you won’t have to repurchase bedding nearly as often.
