Abyss is an exclusive towel company. Egyptian Cotton Giza - ELS (Extra Long Staple) is used to produce Abyss towels and bathrobes. It is considered the best cotton in the world. Cultivated on the banks of the Nile, the cotton is picked by hand, the fiber is twisted and treated to create a yarn of exceptional quality, creating Abyss towels and bathrobes which are soft, durable and absorbent.
Habidecor is an exclusive rug company. Egyptian Cotton Giza - (Long Staple) is used for the production of Habidecor bath rugs; it’s known for its length, fineness and exceptional quality. During production, the yarn is combed and passes through the operation spinner that removes short fibers, selecting only the best to create Habidecor rugs - elegant and durable.
Egyptian Cotton: Creating the “best” towel begins with the selection of the cotton. A&H weaves only the finest Egyptian combed cotton called Giza ELS (Extra Long Staple 37mm) - the most exclusive cotton. This cotton is generally considered to provide the finest quality yarn for textiles, with resistance, low pilling and excellent absorption.
Belgian Linen: Linen is woven from the fibers produced by the flax plant. The term “linen” cannot be applied to any other kind of fiber except that of natural flax. A&H exclusively uses Belgian Linen labeled by the ‘Masters of Linen’. Linen, an exclusive fiber which is exceptionally pleasant to use and has the great qualities of being sturdy, hypoallergenic and antistatic.
Silk: Silk is considered the most luxurious fiber in textile world. Soft and elegant, it adds a touch of luxury to your bathroom.
We employ cotton with extra long, smooth fibers, making a more uniform, resistant and smoother thread when twisted. Cotton is produced in several locations around the world; requiring a long growth period, heat, moderate rain and slightly heavy soil. The cotton used for Abyss Towels is GIZA Extra Long Staple (ELS) and for Habidecor Rugs is GIZA Long Staple (LS); both cultivated in the Egyptian town of Giza along the Nile river. Both are still handpicked to respect the delicacy of the cotton flower. Only 3% of the whole cotton production of Egypt is Extra Long Staple. Specific growth conditions will determine the quality of the fiber. The length of the fiber is directly proportional to its resistance and quality. The cotton yarn made from these exceptional Extra Long Staples and Long Staple will show exceptional strength, quality, and softness, resulting in textiles that are durable, easy to care for, and soft to the touch.
The cotton fibers we use are Carded, Combed and Twisted. The Carding process opens the fiber further, eliminates impurities, and 20% of short fibers, while aligning them in a parallel manner. The result is a stronger yarn and less pilling. By Combing the cotton fibers after the carding process, shorter fibres that remain are removed. These two processes result in a stronger yarn and less pilling during the use of the fabrics - great durability. The cotton fiber then goes through the main spinning process: the fibers are Twisted and turned into a yarn. Once the cotton yarn is produced, this single yarn is doubled to add strength. The art of spinning is quite complicated. Over the years, Abyss has developed great relationships with the greatest spinners in the world in order to guarantee the best yarns.
Abyss & Habidecor is devoted to delivering excellence to each client. Combining quality and craftmanship, with an eye for detail in each step of the production.
Why are Abyss & Habidecor towels so different? Abyss uses, in all towels, Extra Long Staple cotton. This is exceptional in the world of textile. Extra Long Staples are prestigious and rare: the ‘truffle’ of textiles - not easy to find.
Why are our towels more absorbent? As the fibers are very fine, the micronaire is low, the number of fibers in one thread is high. So the surface for absorption is greater.
Why are our towels more durable? Durability is achieved through the quality of the finest 100% Giza Egyptian cotton Extra Long Staple, and pure linen. All Abyss & Habidecor towels are pre-washed and pre-shrunk. Abyss & Habidecor products, with proper care, will last a very long time.
Why is there less pilling on Abyss & Habidecor towels? We work exclusively with Extra Long Staple fibers after the Combing process, which significantly reduces the possibility of pillling.
Why is the moniker “Haute Couture” attached to our name? It is naturally, the exceptional quality of the materials we use. In addition it is our exacting and consistent quality standards. Besides that, our “Bespoke” program is second to none. The ability to create custom colors, sizes and finishings are available. Our monogram embroidery program is a flourish that is the quintessential “cherry on the cake”.
The Oeko-Tex label shows our commitment to invest in the ecology by using biological water treatment and biodegradable products. Moreover, the production process endeavours to exemplify respect for our environment.
Wash the linens separately from other products and avoid clothes with buttons or zippers that may damage the towels. Separate whites from colours and dark products. Use mild liquid soaps. Take care with beauty products that may contain harmful agents. All of our products are pre-washed to prevent them from shrinking. If a thread is pulled in the towels, carefully cut it level with the loops using scissors. Do not overload the washing machine. Do not use detergents containing whitening agents, they may alter or fade colours. It is important to use a tumble dryer to restore the volume and springiness of the towels. During the first few washes, rugs and towels naturally lose some fibers, and it is necessary to properly clean the tumble dryer’s filter.
