The secret behind their high quality
Designed in London and produced in Egypt, The stylish ethically made bedding of House Babylon is manufactured using the purest extra long-staple Egyptian cotton. Egyptian cotton produces fibers that are far longer than other cottons, which allow Egyptian cotton bed sheets to be special, stronger, luxurious, and lighter in terms of weight, which in turns enhances comfort.
Made in Turkey, House Babylon loungewear collections are all made using organic Turkish cotton. This cotton provides the perfect balance between absorbance and softness, and that makes it the best cotton to be used in towels. House Babylon’s bathrobes are made using cotton with long, strong, smooth fibers, which makes them one of the most durable choices. They not only keep their integrity even after many washes, but they are also very quick to dry thanks to their thin pile.
