Stonewashed Linen Shams

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns on Bedding and Bath

Organic texture. Laid-back vibes. Supremely soft. Our linen shams are what dreams are made of. Designed to mix and match, each piece is garment-dyed and stonewashed to give you a relaxed look. The best part? They only get softer with time (that is, every single time you wash them).

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 shams. 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.

Fair Trade. Guaranteed. 100% of our products are made with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization.

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.

Never disappointed

Nothing compares to the quality and feel of The Citizenry washed linen. I'm so happy with not only the shams, but my duvet cover as well.

Now This is Rich!

I've been on the search for the perfect linen shams for what seems like forever, and I am thrilled to have finally found them with this company! These supersoft linen shams are an absolute dream to sleep on. They're incredibly soft and comfortable, yet durable enough to withstand multiple washes without losing their shape or texture. Not only do these shams look and feel amazing, but the customer service I received from this company was top-notch. They were incredibly helpful in answering all of my questions and ensuring that I was completely satisfied with my purchase. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my experience purchasing these supersoft linen shams from this company. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for high-quality, comfortable bedding that will stand the test of time."

Great quality and design

These pillow shams are perfect for a full fluff king sized pillow, one that will really fill them out. They are soft and good quality stitching. I’ve washed them a few times and they keep getting softer. The color is a great contrast to the indigo blue sheet set I received and just textured enough to add visual interest to my bedding.
