In preparing our humble abode for a month-long sublet in June, I’ll admit that way more fun than drawing up a sublease has been the chance to play out all of my innkeeping fantasies. Crisp white linens here. A special soap there. A fridge stocked with maple syrup coming right up. It’s only a matter of time before looking up rambly old houses to turn into a bed and breakfast becomes a full-blown obsession.
Until then, I don’t need to tell you that I appreciate a good set of white sheets. While we’re away, our subletters will have the chance to enjoy beautiful bedding (and towels!) from Snowe. And if you’re thinking that it’d be nice to have the feel like you’re staying in a beautiful inn from the comfort of your very own bed, bedding from Snowe might be the right option for you, too.
As you might remember, Snowe is a brand committed to selling luxury home essentials to customers directly. By cutting out the middleman, the company is able to make high-end luxury staples like Limoges porcelain and titanium-reinforced Italian glassware accessible to customers for a fraction of what they would otherwise cost.
The Snowe bedding choices are no different. Snowe uses combed 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton to produce the fine and strong threads they weave into their 500-thread count sheets. More important than thread count, their sheets, pillowcases, shams, and duvet covers are woven into a tight, strong, long-lasting percale. The percale weave (a simple one over, one under process) produces a fabric that is crisp, breathable, and designed to be suitable for any weather.
Snowe’s simple sheets sets are designed to work in either traditional or contemporary spaces. Each sheet is hand-finished with a bit of satin thread and sheet sets come in three colors: Essential White, Classic Ivory, and Perfect Gray. Even better: they now come as singles. Maybe you’re not a flat sheet kind of person. Maybe you’re a brave soul who forgoes the fitted sheet and gets fancy by tucking a flat sheet around your mattress? Whatever your particularity, now you can buy your sheets in whatever combination makes sense for you.
Because the 100% cotton sheets haven’t been treated with anti-wrinkle chemicals or inter-woven with wrinkle-resistant fibers like silk or poly, Snowe recommends dressing your bed with sheets that are still slightly damp to avoid wrinkles. (To note: Snowe recommends machine washing on warm and tumble drying on low to extend your bedding’s lifespan. The sheets in these photos have been washed and dried but not ironed!)
Each set of sheets comes with a specially made percale storage envelope for safe keeping and easy stacking. (For sheets that are destined for the linen closet, Snowe recommends folding sheets while they’re still warm from the dryer to cut back on wrinkles.)
