Stonewashed Linen Shams
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.

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.

The linen is soft and well-made, and I am in love with the design of the sham's edging. I continue to come back to The Citizenry for high quality, beautiful pieces with a story, and these shams do not disappoint!
Linen is the best for summer sleeping.
They were a tad long for my Woolroom King pillows but they are such nice quality and the color gets better with each wash.

Beautiful stone color, great quality, and fit.
I’ve never gotten compliments on my sheets until I bought these. The look of sandy linen against my grey headboard is a warm contrast that makes the whole bed look inviting. I find that linen is also cool to the touch if you’re a warm sleeper, so these are perfect for me. Lastly, the sheets are not super soft if you are looking for that silly feel, but I truly enjoy the feel of linen, so it’s really preference.
I love the color and the feel of the fabric is so soft. It’s so warm and inviting.
