It's not always easy to choose the perfect robe! First you need to decide what material you want for your robe - do you want a nice, fluffy and light 100% polyester robe, do you want a light-weight waffle or 100% cotton robe, or maybe you want a heavy cotton terry toweling robe?
The word "velour" often throws people when relating to cotton bath robes. Lots of our Diamonds Commercial and Baksana robes have a velour shell (like a nice fluffy beach towel), and toweling interior- but they are still 100% cotton, this is simply because the Cotton is treated in a different fashion on each side, that way you get the best of both worlds- a nice fluffy outer, and toweling on the inside - so you can chuck it on after a shower or spa if you want to!
Choosing the right pillow is a very personal decision – what is perfect for one person may not suit the next. As well as having a supportive and comfortable bed, it is really important to have the right pillow, one suited to your size and sleeping style and which fully supports your head, neck and shoulders throughout the night. So what should you look out for when choosing a pillow for yourself?

Egyptian Cotton is often a term used to describe good quality sheets. Unfortunately you have to be careful as a very cheap “Egyptian Cotton” sheet set is more than likely too good to be true! Here's what we have to tell you...
Did you know, we don’t have any regulations in New Zealand, so a bud gown in China, Pakistan or similar means the origin of Cotton can still be described as “Egyptian Cotton” even though it will not receive the same nutrients or perfect growing climate genuine Egyptian Cotton, grown on the banks of the Nile and picked by hand (not machine picked like crops in China or Pakistan) are. The result of this could be a cheaper sheet set, but because of the machine picking process, the sheets will break down & pill (bobble) over a shorter period of time....
Sheets are really important for a perfect night’s sleep. We always get people in the queenb showroom after a new, top quality set of sheets! The first question we always ask the customer when they arrive to buy new sheets is what material do you want your sheet set made of; cotton, polycotton or “other”? The most common response is “what is the difference?" Being Manchester experts the queenb team are always more than happy to explain!
