Amancara's New Collection

Amancara's New Collection...Coming Soon!

So, it has been quite a while since our last blog post, but with good reason. We have been traveling around Italy and other European countries looking for inspiration for our new 2015 collection. We have found countless leather samples, fabrics, and accessories to use in our brand new collection. Just to give you a little sneak peak...here is one of our latest sport bags.

We have never manufactured sport bags before, but we thought it would be great to offer our clients some options that are a bit harder to get your hands on. Luxury doesn't just mean getting dressed up for a cocktail party, it is also a lifestyle. Having some classic pieces in your wardrobe that are sure to always look great and make an entrance is what Amancara is all about. 

Our new collection features more colors than we have ever used before and also includes many shapes and styles that we have never showcased on our website.This is just a little sneak peak, but you can inquire about prices by contacting me directly at sales@amancara.com.

Keep an eye out for our next blog, I will try to post some more Italian recipes for all those cooking enthusiasts out there. 

Remember to live luxuriously...and choose Amancara!

What is Luxury?

What is Luxury?

Luxury can mean many different things, depending on the person you ask. Being a luxury linen representative, the choices for me are quite simple: cashmere, Egyptian cotton bedding and fur blankets! Some other obvious examples that come to mind are extravagant dinners in glorious locations, private yachts, and fast sport cars. Others might disagree with this response and insist that luxury is found in the simple pleasures that are often overlooked: Having time to finally manicure your nails, indulging in a decadent box of truffles, or the simplicity of listening to the waves crash on a deserted beach. The way you choose to live luxuriously is your own. We are all entitled to luxury and so we should all have it, don't you think?

Luxury makes us feel special because it may not be something we have access to on a day to day basis. Luxury makes us feel pampered and important. Luxury gives us a reason to set goals so we can live, well...luxuriously. 

Amancara's challenge to you is to dedicate 2015 to luxury, because everyone deserves a bit of luxury in their lives. Set a goal or set aside some extra time to live the extraordinary and pamper yourself and your loved ones. Make 2015 the best year yet. Browse our online store to start making your wish list!

Leather by Amancara

Thousands of tourists flock to Florence, Italy every year for a variety of reasons.

Just one visit to this great city is enough to understand the importance of leather. If you happen to walk through Piazza San Lorenzo you will find countless stands filled with leather jackets, bracelets, leather book covers, purses, wallets, belts and more.

Why Thread Count Matters!

Why Thread Count Matters

What do we spend over a third of our life doing? You guessed right, sleeping! I am writing this article on a few reasons why you should consider investing in a fantastic set of sheets for your bed.

Most of us have heard the word thread count before but have often wondered what it really means when we purchase bed linens that are 300-count sheets or even higher. Hopefully after reading this article you will feel more knowledgeable about the topic and will feel more comfortable when you make your next purchase.

Let’s tackle the first question, ‘what is thread count’?

Thread count refers to the number of threads, both vertical and horizontal, in a one-inch square of fabric. The vertical threads are known as the warp and the horizontal threads are known as the weft.

What is Ply?

The ply of the fabric refers to how many threads are wrapped together into a single thread. Single–ply fabrics use threads on their own, while two-ply fabrics twist two pieces together into a stronger thread, and can also double the count of the fabric.

By using a finer thread means that more thread needs to be used to fit into a square inch. The main reason why many people choose to buy fabrics with a higher thread count is that is results in a smoother fabric. A finer thread could result in a very delicate fabric. Two-ply fabrics can resolve this problem a bit by strengthening the thread as well as increasing the thread count of the fabric by double.  

A luxury fabric such as Amancara’s would range from a thread count of 500 or more. You can find sheet sets that even surpass 1000 count! Different weaves and different fabrics will have a different feel. For example, a cotton percale sheet is crisper and a more traditional style sheet, while cotton sateen is silkier and has a bit of a sheen to it. Linen sheets, which are very desired in terms of luxury interiors, are in a totally different category and seem to result in a cooler touch due to the airy pockets in their weave. All of Amancara’s sheets are upwards in the luxury range and will be suitable for all seasons and provide a very enjoyable night’s sleep. In addition many of our products are hand embroidered and produced in Italy by some of the most experienced craftsmen in the world. Don’t forget that sheets are an investment, and if cared for properly can last for several years. When you pay for good quality you will reap the benefits for years to come!

When shopping for your next bed set, remember to choose Amancara for a perfect night’s sleep. Don’t you think you deserve the best!
