Stonewashed Linen Shams

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns

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-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.


Since linen is a natural fiber, it will shed at first – this should stop after a few washes though. We recommend using Wool Dryer Balls instead of dryer sheets to reduce waste and increase fluffiness.


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.

My favorite linen so far!

I’ve recently been introduced to the wonder of linen sheets, so I’ve been ordering pillowcases/shams from various companies to see which linen I like best. The Citizenry stone-washed linen is by far my favorite, it’s incredibly soft.

Stylish and Comfortable

These linen shams look gorgeous on our bed, but they are also great to sleep on! I was looking for something functional and stylish, and these shams absolutely fit the bill. Of course, you could use them just as a decoration piece, but we sleep with them regularly too. They are soft and wash well. Definitely worth the splurge!

The Citizenry is unmatched in cozy

These stonewashed shams really completed the look of our bed. I bought them to mix with the white regular pillowcases, and the white sheets I have. They are lightweight, soft, and airy. I feel like no other linen compares. The sham fits a bit more snug than the regular pillowcase, which makes my bed look so beautiful. Truly unmatched. Makes me want to only buy citizenry for the rest of my days, and forever sleep in a cloud.

New to linen bedding but love it

While the "casual" nature of linen bedding has been a turn off for years, I decided to take the plunge after realizing that a number of my favorite clothing items are linen due to the breathability. The feel is rougher than a really high end cotton sateen but it is still very soft and cozy. Honestly, we feel like sleeping under the linen duvet cover is more comfortable than our previous cotton one. It breathes better and feels lighter while laying on top of us. We are both slightly hot sleepers so this lightness and breathability while still feeling warm and toasty in a NE winter is impressive!
