Inspired by the beauty of Brazilian wedding hammocks, our Hammock collection adds a fanciful crochet lace trim with fringe tassels to our classic Vintage Linen fabric.
Derived from the flax plant, linen's durability and tendency to grow softer with time make it ideal for bedding that can last for years. Linen is naturally moisture absorbent and insulating. It keeps you cool when you are hot, and warms when you are cold. Linen is also hypoallergenic and antimicrobial.
Our Vintage Linen uses a 28 single-metric yarn in both the warp and the weft. The weave is extremely balanced, which produces a linen fabric that is both soft and sturdy. The magic of our Vintage Linen is in the special washing process we use in our dyehouse. This wash opens and penetrates the depths of the fibers, softening each one and creating a truly special sleep.
Finished with loose crochet lace fringe fringe that can hang over the pillow or off to the side, Hammock Shams feature an envelope closure and a delicate reverse french seam detail.
Shams and Pillowcases are both used to protect pillow inserts, but there are a wide variety of constructions. Typically, shams are more fitted and employ some method of closure to keep the pillow in place, whereas pillowcases loosely encase the pillow and are open on the side.

Wash should be separated into light & dark colors. We recommend a lukewarm wash cycle with a gentle detergent & a cool rinse.
Do not use bleach on linen. Avoid using products that contain whitening agents such as chlorine bleach, alpha hydroxy acids and benzoyl peroxide on garment-dyed items. The reactive dyes used for garment-dyeing are not resistant to these whitening agents.
Tumble dry with low heat. Remove bed linens promptly from the machine to reduce wrinkling. For best results, line dry.
We at MATTEO tend to prefer a lived-in look, as such, you don't find us ironing our sheets too frequently. If you prefer a crisp looking bed, our linen should be pressed while slightly damp using the Linen or High setting.
