I received a set of Frette Sheets for review. If you Google, “Luxury Sheets” you’ll find that Frette is usually at the top of the results, and for good reason. I had the honor of being able to review a set of Frette Bicolore Sheets for this site. The retail price for a king size set is $1,295. Not something most people would purchase on a whim. Many people consider these sheets an investment and an heirloom. They have a timeless beauty to and have a reputation for durability. Since these are probably the most expensive sheets I will ever sleep in, I will be conducting a more in-depth review that will be updated over time to track the quality of the sheets.
History of Frette Sheets
Frette Sheets were established in 1860 in Grenoble France but soon relocated to Concorezzo Italy in 1865 and is currently headquartered in Monza Italy. It sells sheets to high-end hotels globally but only has 9 stores in the United States.
Frette sheets were found on the Titanic, the Orient Express and in the houses of royal families across Europe.

I received the sheets via FedEx today and they came in a nondescript brown box about 2 feet long and 1 foot wide.
Inside the box, however, was a beautiful Frette box with a hand-tied bow along with a personalized card.
Inside the box were the perfectly folded sheets as well as a plastic case for keeping the sheets when not in use.
The sheets are in the wash right now and will be drying soon. I hope to put them on tonight or tomorrow night for their first trial. I hear that it sometimes takes a few washes for them to soften up but I can say that they felt extremely smooth and crisp right out of the box.
Frette Update May 20, 2015
I washed the sheets today and put them on my bed. The first thing I noticed is that the fitted sheet has deep pockets which is great if you have a thick mattress or use a mattress pad. The Frette sheets are also a bit longer than my regular sheets. I think this is so that you can turn them down more to show the cool pattern.
After my first night on them, I found that they weren’t exceptionally smooth compared to my Cariloha bamboo sheets but I know that it takes a few washed before they get to their true feel. I will get a chance to use them next week when I’m back from a Memorial Day weekend trip and will be posting regular updates.
