Alterra Pure was created by creators. We crafted Alterra Pure to rise above and bring peace of mind to your bedroom. Each Alterra Pure founder has no less than 20+ years experience with textiles. Our experience at sustainable brands as Patagonia, Gruppo Tecnica, and others brings insight and integrity to organic bedding.
Textiles are what we've done all our lives. It's only natural that we create and build heirloom products that honor the ingredients. But knowing the ingredients is the first step. We are not buyers selling you something to which we simply attach a label, everything we do is crafted from scratch.
Alterra Pure has no secrets. We believe you have the right to know everything about your bedding: evert ingredient, who made your sheets, and how they are made. Within our Amazon Storefront, you'll find ingredient and factory details - as well as our certifications. You'll meet the owners and creators of the finest percale linens available. As textile professionals, we stand behind everything we make.
PERCALE VS. SATEEN
There is strong personal preference between Percale and Sateen bedding. Alterra Pure recognizes this preference. If you are not familiar with the terminology, below is a brief description to help you better make purchase decisions.
PERCALE: is a traditional 1x1 weave characterized by a smooth finish and a cool, crisp feel. If you are a warm sleeper, percale might be better for you. Percale is low/no-pill and has long durability. Percale feels better after multiple washings. CONS: percale wrinkles so remove promptly from dryer; or, iron. Some feel percale is too crisp; or, the noise of crispness might be distracting. Takes some washings to reach max comfort.
SATEEN: is a weave incorporating weft floats over/under the warp providing a soft, flowing fabric that is warm to the touch. If you seek a cocoon feeling and warmth, Sateen might be better for you. Sateen does not wrinkle as much and is soft right out of the box. CONS: Sateen pills and does not have durability.

CARE AND LAUNDERING
When finer hotels buy new percale sheets, they often wash and dry their sheets twice before using. We recommend doing the same. The first wash cleans and tightens the yarns, the second wash starts to relax those same yarns for the heirloom feel that is so prized. And with each additional wash, you'll find that your percale sheets become better with time.
WASH: machine wash cool, use a mild liquid detergent.
DRY: tumble dry low or medium, remove promptly to reduce wrinkling
IRON: iron your sheets for a smoother, more freeing sleep
