Hi believe it or not they are quite hard to come across. If you are in Cairo that is prob the best place to look.

The majority of the high thread count sheets are exported - so it's actually quite hard to find exceptional quality bed linen in Egypt. Saying that though - you will be able to find lesser quality sheets - which in actual fact are quite good and very good value. The best places to look for Egyptian Cotton sheets is in the department stores like Omar Effendi, Cicurel and Hanno. Omar Effendi is very well known - and you should be able to locate one in all the main cities, except Luxor. There will be a large selection of Bed linens there of varying qualities. The best sets will start at about 200 Egyptian Pounds and will include 2 flat sheets, pillow cases and bolster covers, usually with embroidery or satin embellishments.

You will also be able to find bed linen of good quality in malls in Cairo and Alexandria - but note that the price will possibly be a lot higher.
