For linen connoisseurs, there is no parallel for Italian-woven fabrics. Put simply: Italians are recognized throughout the world as the absolute masters of the craft. Theirs is a rich history, grounded in more than three centuries of small, family-owned textile mills dotting the Alpine foothills in the North of Italy, where SFERRA linens are still crafted today, continuing a heritage of unsurpassed workmanship and artistry. Sferra was the first to introduce bed linens woven from GIZA 45 , coveted as the highest grade of Egyptian cotton.
For Sferra, the divine is in the details: the forethought that goes into all the fine little particulars in this line means Sferra has carefully considered all the functionality inherent and desired in the products they design.
These refinements are in the finishing touches of a well-crafted hemstitch. It’s the generous sizing of these bed linens, allowing extra fabric not only for shrinkage, but also, a luxuriant turn-back on flat sheets. It’s in the all-around elastic of our fitted sheets (and, its prodigious depth), so you’ll never find yourself short sheeted.
And so, from a humble Italian immigrant pursuing the American Dream to the preeminent dreamers of innovation, SFERRA will always live at the forefront of craftsmanship and luxury. Shades of Sleep is truly honored to now be a dealer for Sferra Fine Linens.
