NEW YORK - Egyptian vertical textile producer Nile Linen has become a new member of Stellar Alliance, offered its first collections of home textiles at Home Fashions Market here earlier this month.
"It's a relatively young company - 13 years old - but they make great product in jacquards, dobbies, yarn dyes," said Ryan Jones, co-principal of Stellar Alliance. The companies launched sheeting, filled silk duvets and shams as well as pillow cases, coverlets, and top of bed designs.
Sheeting is 300 count sateen, 600 count sateen, 400 count sateen as well as percale. Table linens also are part of the mix.
"Nile has a vast library of embroidery designs and we will use two to start and adapt them," Jones said.
Typically, minimums are 2,000 meters, but now they have been lowered to 1,000 meters, "and they also will do shorter runs," he said. The fabrics are certified Egyptian cotton, and the embroideries are termed self-hemmed sheeting, Jones pointed out.
