Citizenry’s linen bedding is worth the high price

I have to admit I’m a bit of a linen snob – and although there is now a wide variety of linen sheets available at accessible prices, I regret to inform you that it doesn’t get any better than The Citizenry’s. stonewashed linen bedding set. You really get what you pay for.

I’ve been a longtime fan of many of the more popular DTC linen sheet brands, but The Citizenry blows them out of the water. Even as someone with a propensity for luxury, I was shocked at how more luxurious these sheets are than all the others.

First there is aesthetics. These sheets are absolutely gorgeous. They come packaged in their own gorgeous linen bag, which you better believe I’ll be reusing for years to come. Sheets are available in 12 deliciously earthy solid colors and four different simple and timeless patterns; I opted for the graphite pinstripe set, but trust me when I say I had a hard time choosing. They immediately enhanced the look of my entire room with a decidedly “expensive European villa” vibe.

I immediately noticed (and reviewers also noted) that unlike other linen sheets, there is no “break-in” period. Sheets also arrive soft and if you have been washing them regularly for months, less wear and tear. They are incredibly thick and fluffy, way more than any other linen sheets I have experienced. The fact that they keep getting softer while maintaining the same level of thickness is mind blowing. It’s no wonder they’re a bestseller.

Citizenry Stonewashed Linen Sheets are sustainably made with the most heavenly organic French linen my body has ever felt. They are made sustainably in a family mill in Portugal with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization, so you can feel good knowing that you are investing in items made in an eco-friendly and fair-trade environment.

Each set comes with a standard bedding set (one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillowcases) plus one duvet cover and two extra pillowcases. Most comparable brands do not include a duvet cover in their set and often only provide two pillowcases. There may be some initial sticker shock when you check out, but you can rest easy knowing you’re definitely getting a very sturdy bedding set.

“The softest laundry! I’ve purchased linen from many different sellers, Snowe, Coyuchi, Pottery Barn, but haven’t liked it the way I like Citizenry’s linen. It is incredibly soft and breathable. There is no ‘break-in’ period and immediately feels great against your skin. The weight is light, which makes it breathable, especially in the humid New York summer months! — Oliver L..

“Wow. Got these partly for my partner’s birthday. Switching to these thrifty cotton sheets we are both in heaven. Love the breathability – my feet often get hot/dry, I will so having to push them to the side of the bed, but they’re comfortable with those linen sheets. I really like the look too. — Heather M.

“Wow. Love the stonewashed bedding. Looks like the picture and feels amazing. I’m a little jealous of the guest room now… Also worth noting customer service was prompt to respond and very easy to communicate with. I like this brand for their products and the way they treat their customers. I have to redesign the master bedroom now. — Logan

“My favorite linen bedding. I’ve tried a few other brands like Brooklinen and Parachute, but Citizenry is my favorite. It’s soft and has the best colors. I noticed the darker color is softer than my white set for some reason. – trina
