Why Belgian Linen?
Linen, made using flax, is known to be strong, breathable and naturally gentle. European flax is superior and Belgian linen is specifically renown for durability and unsurpassed quality.
Flax is also environmentally ethical, as the plant requires no irrigation and all residual bi-products are utilised, resulting in zero waste.
Le liniculteur utilise moins d’engrais et de pesticides que pour les autres cultures.
All KISANY cotton bedlinen is made using Lysdrap 100% Egyptian cotton. Premium brand Lysdrap® is owned by the Belgian company, Dewerchin & Caems. Since 1933, the brand has been renowned for high quality cotton and perfect finishes.
Why 100% Egyptian Cotton?
Egyptian cotton has a longer fibre making it softer, stronger and more breathable. KISANY cotton bed linens feature a minimum of 200 thread count, to ensure your bed is a refuge of comfort and beauty.
KISANY provides superior DMC Thread for all embroidery.
Made in France since 1746, DMC is world renown for high quality, colourfast thread. With 465 colours to choose from, DMC is the ideal partner for KISANY’s luxurious embroidered linens.
Why DMC Mouline Special thread?

KISANY is dedicated to creating products that remain beautiful and useful for generations: with it’s stunning colour range and outstanding quality, our partner artisans create magic using DMC thread.
