We created our Vintage Cotton fabric to remind us of a different time when everything was made by hand. Prior to the advent of modern yarn-spinning equipment, all yarns had slubs. Slubbed or slub-yarn has both irregular length and diameter.Working closely with our yarn spinners and our weavers we created a unique fabric with lots of slubs while not missing any stability or softness. Vintage Cotton will get softer and softer with each washing, and it is a wonderful choice for those who want a 100% cotton fabric with a linen feel.
Vintage Cotton pillowcases are finished with a 1" twill tape hem around the open edge.
Pillowcases and Shams are both used to protect pillow inserts, but there are a wide variety of constructions. Typically, pillowcases loosely encase the pillow and are open on the side, whereas shams are more fitted and employ some method of closure to keep the pillow in place.
We recommend using a Queen pillowcase for a Standard pillow insert as we do not offer a Standard pillowcase. The pillowcase will hang a bit longer over the edge of the insert. It can be tucked in to create an envelope closure or taken to a seamstress for a simple alteration.

Wash should be separated into light & dark colors. Do not overload machine as this will damage long cotton fibers. We recommend a lukewarm wash cycle with a gentle detergent & a cool rinse.
Bleach may be used on white cotton bed linens only. 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 cotton bed linens should be pressed while slightly damp using the Lightweight Cotton or Medium setting.
