Frette bed sheets have been a staple at luxury hotels in the United States and Europe, on cruise ships and have graced the homes of wealthy, aristocratic families since the Italian company was founded in 1860. If you don't mind paying a little more for luxury, you can have these high quality linens in your home as well. Frette sheets are made with the finest Egyptian cotton and superior craftsmanship. These luxury sheets don't come cheap, however, as prices range from $350 for a queen set to as much as $2750.
Where to Buy
For those who are unfamiliar with the Frette brand, these luxury sheets are made from fine Egyptian cotton and range from 200 to 300 thread count. The ever popular Hotel Charme collection sheets feature a classic jacquard stripe and have a silky, sateen finish. The Hotel Classic sheets are bordered with attractive double piping embroidery and feature classy monogramming on the pillowcases and flat sheet.
