What is your thread count?

What is the difference between a twin and a queen pillowcase?

Do you offer fabric samples?

Yes, we can mail up to five fabric samples for your reference. After that they are $1 a piece. Please email us with your mailing address and we will ship them via USPS at no charge.

What is the best way to maintain the quality of my pillowcases and bedding?

Follow all care label instructions on each product, which will vary. Duvets and cases machine wash warm separately, tumble dry low heat, remove promptly, iron medium heat. For quilts we recommend machine wash cold separately, tumble dry low heat, iron medium heat, or dry clean. For throw pillow cases, we recommend machine wash cold separately, lay flat to dry, iron medium heat.

The zipper on the pillowcase has broken, or a snap on the duvet has a malfunction.

Although we use the highest quality zippers and snaps available, if there is indeed a product failure, we will gladly accept a return and either refund or send you a replacement of the item, depending on availability. We are not responsible for intentional or non-intentional misuse of an item which can cause breakage.
