There are many rites of passage into “adulthood,” but few feel quite as satisfying as investing in luxury linens. It makes your space cozier and more comfortable, and it can actually help you sleep better. Take your typical cotton sheet, for example. The material is known for breathability and comfort when sleeping. Oeko-Tex certified cotton ups the ante by making sure your sheets are cozy and chemical-free. One well-known purveyor of this type of bedding is Brooklinen.
For those unfamiliar, Oeko-Tex goes beyond the certification of just organic, and assesses not just the end result, but all stages of textile production from start to finish. This independent testing award certifies that substances which could affect your health, such as formaldehyde or pesticides, don’t make their way into your sheets.
Brooklinen, a direct-to-consumer brand, focuses on giving customers quality sheets that won’t break the bank. It has a number of offerings, from comforters to candles, but there’s one particular item that has thousands of people buzzing: its Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle (starting at $198; brooklinen.com). This set comes with a silky-soft flat sheet, fitted sheet, duvet cover and pillowcases for bed sizes from twin to California king. In addition, it’s made to fit mattresses up to 15 inches tall. It comes in 21 different color and design options to suit your bedroom decor. The bundle is so good, over 24,000 past customers have rated it an impressive five stars.
After testing it out for ourselves, we’re not surprised just how many people love them. Our tester, who is a naturally hot sleeper, was impressed just how cooling the sheets were, even on the hottest of nights. In addition, after many washes of the sheets, the bundle retains its softness and even its brightness of color.
The site notes that by buying the bundle, you’ll save 25% compared with buying all the items individually. That’s additional savings on top of the fact that you’re scoring luxury bedding for a direct-to-consumer price.
But what really seals the deal for us is Brooklinen’s lifetime warranty, which means that if your sheets ever pill, rip or fray, the company will repair or replace them. It’s great peace of mind for those who are a bit hesitant to jump into bed (literally) with bedding they haven’t seen in real life.
