Yes, we take your security seriously. Checkout is secure on all devices including computers, smartphones and tablets. We use industry leading encryption, the same as Large Banks. (Our checkout server is encrypted using Level 1 PCI Compliant hosting and 256-bit SSL Certificate Encryption.)
Do you accept Apple Pay or Paypal?
Yes. We have been approved by and accept payments via Apple Pay and Paypal.
Do you offer a gift-wrapping option?
No. But rest assured that our sheets ship wrapped in tissue paper in one of our amazing mailer bags or branded boxes(pictured above). No pricing information is included in the packing slip so your gift will not show the price. We also offer Gift Cards as an option.
Why don't you offer colors?
Our fabric is special, we've worked with our manufacturing partners for nearly a year to develop it. Nearly all bed sheets are made overseas from stock fabric that is simply rebranded. We are the ONLY ones who use our fabric and in order to run more colors, we need volume. We are getting there, we plan to offer colors in the future. If you have any particular color you'd like email us and let us know.
Are your sheets wrinkle-free or non-iron?
Our sheets are NOT wrinkle-free or non-iron. The treatments used to make clothes or sheets that come out of the dryer perfect often involve baking the fabric in a Formaldehyde chemical treatment! We don't want to sleep in Formaldehyde (a known carcinogen) so we skipped the treatment. There's the added benefit of better breathability and a softer hand. We chose a great night's sleep over wrinkle-free chemicals.
What is the deal with Thread-Count, Egyptian vs Supima cotton and Percale vs Sateen weaves?
Get all the answers in our blog post, The 7 Myths of Bedding.
Percale vs Sateen. Which sheets are right for me?
We believe that the Percale weave, when done right with the right manufacturers and cotton, simply can't be beat. There's a reason all the top luxury hotels use Percale sheets. It's more durable, sleeps cooler, regulates temperature efficiently, and has a fabulously crisp hand feel that we LOVE. The downside is that it is more wrinkle-prone than Sateen, but we can live with a few wrinkles for a great night's sleep. For a more in-depth answer check out our blog post on the subject HERE!
What provided the inspiration for this product?
We love American-made products, and actively seek them out. When a Made in USA version of something is available, we choose that over the product made overseas. Our apartment is filled with Made in USA furniture, cookware, utensils, tables, and furniture. Our closets are filled with shirts, jeans, pants, workout gear and all kinds of other apparel made right here in the States - from great, young companies like ourselves. We looked high and low for premium American-made bedsheets - and couldn’t find any on the market. So we worked with our manufacturing partners to create one. We’re proud to say that we are the ONLY option for premium Made in USA bedsheets, from 100% Supima® cotton.
Why did you choose Supima® cotton rather than Egyptian cotton?
The short answer: Supima® is a premium Extra-long staple Pima cotton that is VERIFIED by the American Supima Association. Most Egyptian cotton is not grown in Egypt, it is grown in China and India. And there is also no verification system for Egyptian cotton (as there is with American Supima®.) So consumers really don’t know if they are getting a high-quality cotton or not. Check out more information HERE and an article in the Wall Street Journal HERE.
What is your thread-count and why is it not 800, 900 or 1000 thread-count?
The short answer: Contrary to popular thought, thread-count is NOT a true indicator of quality. In fact, sheets marketed as having a higher thread-count are usually made of cheap cotton that is not counted in an honest fashion. In order to create high quality sheets, you need to use the finest cotton and work with great manufacturing partners. We work with the best manufacturers in the USA - with a combined experience of more than 200 years! Authenticity 50 sheets are an HONEST 250 thread-count, a perfect balance of strength, softness, and durability. The in-depth analysis is on our blog HERE.
