Stonewashed Linen Pillowcases

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns

Organic texture. Laid-back vibes. Oh-so-soft. Sweet dreams begin with our linen pillowcases. Garment-dyed and stonewashed to give you a relaxed look, these pillowcases are designed to get better (i.e. softer) with time.

Made using only the finest French flax and woven in the oldest, family-run linen mill in Portugal, each piece is Oeko-Tex® certified and made sustainably in a fair-trade working environment.

Note: Set includes two pillowcases.

Available in two sizes: standard or king. We recommend styling the standard set on a full- or queen-size bed. The king set works perfectly on a king- or california-king size bed.

Made with higher standards. We preserve artisan craft by paying wages that average 2x the fair trade requirement.

Our linen is machine washable. Wash on the gentle cycle with like colors and using a mild, liquid laundry detergent. Do not bleach. Tumble dry on low heat, and remove promptly. Avoid bleaching agents and personal care products that contain benzoyl peroxide or alpha hydroxy acids.

Some shedding does occur in the natural life cycle of linen, especially as it softens with age. We recommend using Wool Dryer Balls to help increase fluffiness, or a few extra washes on cold and tumble dries to speed up the process.

Linen naturally has a more relaxed look that does not require ironing. However, if you would like more structure - iron with warm heat on the milder “linen” setting.

Okay so there are obviously a zillion different companies to buy linen sheets from and I found it pretty overwhelming (and also exciting tbh) to comb through reviews and research each brand. Eventually, factoring in price, reviews, color choice, and the ethicality of each company I ended up going with a full bedding set from The Citizenry and I am sooo happy with my decision! I’ve never had other linen bedding so I can’t actually compare but it is so soft and luxurious and FINALLY I don’t wake up covered in my partner’s sweat (he’s a very hot sleeper). The only thing I would note is that the duvet cover is slightly thinner than I would have expected so I can kind of see the white of my duvet through it, but that might just be the nature of linen weaving. Anyways, my sweetheart, myself, and our dog are all in love with the bedding!

Favorite pillow cases yet!

I’ve been buying linen bedding for years and this purchase is among my top favorites — soft, high quality, and a perfect fit for our king sized pillows. I’ll undoubtedly be a return shopper for the linen bedding here!

Excellent quality pillowcases

Very happy with these. You will need to line dry or iron for the open edge to lie flat.
