Slipping between cool, crisp sheets is one of the sensory pleasures that makes staying in the world’s best hotels such bliss. Now Savoir, bed-maker to The Savoy, is launching its first linen collection, so that same feeling can be enjoyed at home.

Just as the hotel’s founder, impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte, insisted on creating über-comfortable beds (the original Savoir No 2 is still made today) for his discerning guests, Savoir’s British-crafted bedding collection uses exquisite materials. These include a supremely rare Egyptian cotton, Giza 87, grown in a small oasis on the Nile delta and considered the world’s best: its long, extremely fine fibres result in a silky-soft “handle” and high thread count.

The collection offers three types of cotton: jacquard, sateen and percale. Vision, a 600-thread-count cotton jacquard (from £1,500 for a set of one double duvet cover, fitted sheet and two pillowcases) woven on extra-wide looms to ensure total uniformity, features Savoir’s signature Trellis pattern – a design conceived for the company’s mattress ticking more than a century ago (and still in use today).

Dream (sets from £800) is a pure-cotton sateen with an inviting, pearlescent lustre. It comes in a choice of 300 or 650 thread counts, plus the special Giza 87 cotton in a 1,000 thread count. Drift (sets from £800), a crisp cotton percale with a matte appearance, is available in a 400 thread count or Giza 87 cotton in a 500 thread count.

Both Dream and Drift feature single or double lines of embroidered cording in white or silver/charcoal on pillowcases, flat sheets and duvet covers. Savoir also offers hand-embroidered monogramming for anyone wishing to add a personal touch.
