What is Pique? What is the difference between Birds Eye Pique,
Dakota Pique, Diamond Pique and BuckEye Pique? What is the
Pique (pee-kay) is
a French word describing a woven fabric that has a special appearance referred
to as Birds Eye or Diamond Pique. The fabric is typically cotton,
cotton/polyester blends or some other make. The all over dot appearance is
referred to as Birds Eye or Buckeye Pique, while the all over small diamond pattern
is referred to as Diamond or Dakota Pique. These light to medium weight fabric
are the preferred choice for embroidering and for monogramming when constructed
as bed coverlets, duvet covers, shams, bed skirts, shower curtains and robes.
Birds Eye Pique and Diamond Pique wear well in the wash and tend
to be lighter weight. Buckeye Pique and Dakota Pique wear
extremely well in the wash for years and years and is more
densely woven making them very durable. All of our piques are
made of a cotton/polyester blend and are all machine wash and
low heat dry. See Pique swatches here>>
Note: We are able to offer most of our Pique fabrics in 100%
Egyptian Cotton, however we do require that the fabric be
pre-shrunk. Please call for quote. The all cotton fabrics
typically do not have the same lasting quality as our
cotton/polyester fabrics and may not be as suitable for daily

How do I care for my new custom linens?
All of our embroidered linens are created to be used and to be
cared for easily. A medium wash and a low heat dry is basically
all that is needed. There are some precautions to be attended to
as with all of your special fine linens or other special home
collections, such as:
No Bleach! or any detergents with any mention of a
'bleaching agent' or other additives. We highly
recommend specialty linen detergents or other fine linen
detergent. The simpler the detergent, the better. Use the
newer detergents with additional additives, softeners or
other 'organic' labels with care.
Use a medium wash cycle or permanent press wash cycle with
cool temperature/low heat temperature. Remove your
embroidered items from the wash right away. Do not leave any
embroidered, applique or applied border items sitting in the
washing machine for any extended time.
Do not 'bone dry' your linens by over drying. This can
sometimes cause 'pilling'. Remove promptly and smooth to
fold or place back on the bed. This will help to eliminate
any wrinkling, especially for your sheets. Your pique items
have very little wrinkling. The more you wash and use your
sheeting items, the less they will wrinkle over time.
While not necessary, we do recommend that your special
linens not be washed with other fabric blends. This can
sometimes cause 'pilling'. This will also extend the life of
If you like your sheeting items to be freshly pressed crisp
and smooth, you may press with an iron and use a damp cloth
to help set the fabric. Use your favorite starch if desired.
In general, we
usually do not embroider on a customer's fabric or merchandise as we select our
items for quality and specifically for embroidery. We will not embroidery on any
item that has been used or previously washed, silk, or antique items. We have
consistently embroidered monograms on chair backs, pillows, lounge chair covers,
and other projects for customers and designers. Monograms for COM projects must
be selected from the 'Couture Monogram' section. A Disclaimer Agreement must be
submitted by the customer or designer waiving all liability against Bella Lino
Custom Linens with regards to embroidering on COM items.
