Japara cotton fabric is a natural product which is made of quality cotton impregnated with a paraffin-based wax, and it is then finely woven into a very durable cloth with a thick texture plus a silky feel and look. It is also found to be less susceptible to liquids and other staining elements.
What is Japara cotton fabric for?
Sometimes known as waxed cotton, Japara cotton was first developed as a way to make sailcloth cloaks much stronger for use in the shipping industry back in mid-19th century. Over the years, its production process has been greatly fine-tuned and a number of different uses of the fabric has later been developed to make Japara cotton fabric into popular and durable waterproof jackets for the navy, motorcyclists and outdoor sports lovers.
Interestingly, it has also somehow found its way to become a much sought-after premier fabric for mattress covers, pillow shells and duvet casings (that is, quilt/doona casings). This is because the tightly woven construction of Japara cotton fabric can effectively prevent sharp feather tips, tiny goose down quills or fine wool fibres from poking through the quilt casing or pillow shell, thus minimising some potential allergic reaction for many allergy sufferers.
What are the main benefits of Japara cotton?
Although Japara cotton with a thick and finely woven texture is much more expensive than regular cotton fabric, it is still definitely a very good investment for quality bedding products, especially if you are after a quality duvet/quilt/doona or pillow which is either wool-filled or goose down-filled. Unlike regular cotton that is much thinner, Japara cotton fabric can prevent the feathers or wool fibres from protruding through the duvet casing and pillow shell. Better still, it is hard-wearing and it does not pill.
With its water-repellent and stain-resistant property, waxed fabric like Japara cotton is also excellent in protecting your expensive mattress, duvet and pillows from the any liquid-based accidents that may occur. If you ever eat anything or drink anything on your bed, even water, it can be a catastrophe if you do not have a water-repellant fabric cover. This Japara cotton cover makes it possible for you to easily and quickly clean up any liquidy or fluid mess, without worrying about damage to your expensive investments.
What’s more, Japara cotton is a natural fabric that is highly durable, breathable and comfortable. Like normal cotton, it is a healthy choice for quilt casings or pillow shells as it allows moisture from the body to pass through and eliminates that clammy feeling, thus giving you a more restful night’s sleep.
There are essentially two types of cotton that are associated with particular quality. The first is Egyptian cotton, and the second is cotton sateen. Both are used to market higher-quality sheets, but what exactly is cotton sateen and why would you want cotton sateen over any other kind of sheet?
When buying sheets, the material used to make the sheet is just as important as the thread count of those sheets. Many people will only go by thread count when in reality, the material plays just as much a hand into how soft the sheets are and how long they last.
What is cotton sateen?
Sheets that are labeled as cotton sateen are likely to have a slight sheen to them. No matter what color or pattern they also feature, they will have a pleasant sheen. While they are not exactly shiny, they do reflect the light. This is because cotton sateen sheets are densely woven out of a special kind of cotton. These fibers band together and create a solid piece of fabric which exhibits the density of the weaving through this sheen.
The special kind of cotton used for cotton sateen sheets is treated in lye and acid before they are woven. This makes the fibers stronger so that the sheets survive multiple washings and uses. The lye and acid also contribute to the sheen and ensure that the dye is evenly distributed in the fabric after it is woven. Because of this treatment, it is much easier for manufacturers to create quality, well-dyed sheets for just about any use.
What is cotton sateen best for?
Cotton sateen sheets are best for any bed that gets regular use. While some people will claim that they do not have as much durability as Egyptian cotton sheets, they are just as durable. They do lose their sheen, over time, but because of the acid and lye bath, they are less likely to pill or tear, even with repeated use and washing.
Because they take dye so well, you are likely to find cotton sateen sheets in a wide variety of colors, so you are also very likely to be able to find a color that matches your décor, no matter what it is.
