We tend to look for Egyptian cotton for our bedding without really considering the connection to Africa. Sahelia is a new luxury linen line that incorporates elements of African design. Sahelia's founder, Fatim Thiam, was born and raised in West Africa, and educated in France, Canada, and the United States. Each of the nine collections is named after an African city and uses rich colors and designs. The sheets are made in Italy of Eyptian cotton. The sheets shown here are from the Ife collection and prices start at $234 for a Queen fitted sheet.
