The Citizenry Organic Sheets Review

Written by

I have reviewed hundreds of mattresses, sheets, pillows, duvet inserts, comforters, sleep gadgets, and adjustable beds. My reviews are based on my personal experience and the feedback I get from customers.

The Citizenry is a fast-growing online brand that has all sorts of home goods from around the world. It’s a curation of some of the best handcrafted textiles and decor that are made by artisans who are paid a fair wage. These sheets were made by the Denizli Cotton Mill in Turkey where apparently the loop bath towel was invented in the 15th century. I was given their Organic Turkish Cotton bed bundle for review. These sheets are well made and wear nicely all at a fair price.

Ordering your Citizenry Organic Cotton Sheets

These sheets are available exclusively through The Citizenry website. They ship fast and should arrive in about 5 business days or sooner. They arrive in a box but inside the box they are also wrapped in plastic to keep them clean during transit.

I also received a nice thank you letter and a small notepad. Maybe to journal my dreams? I’m not sure.

How Much Do Citizenry Sheets Cost?

For this review, I received a queen-size bundle which retails for $455. It’s a $75 savings vs. buying each item individually. I usually have 4 pillows on my bed so you can buy extra pillowcases individually for a consistent look. Shipping is free but make sure you read the fine print with their return policy. Bedding can be returned for a full refund but it must be unused and in original packaging. So you really don’t get a chance to try it out short of just feeling it before you put it on your bed.

Set includes:
– 1 Sheet Set (1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, 2 pillowcases)
– 1 Duvet Cover
– 2 Extra Pillowcases

Full Set: $435
Queen Set $455
King Set $515

Construction of the Citizenry Organic Cotton Sheets

These are 4oo thread count sheets in a sateen weave.

Made using 100% organic, long-staple cotton in the Aegean region of Turkey, each piece is Oeko-Tex® and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified – the world’s foremost authority for organic textiles. From sourcing to finishing and every step in between, each piece is made sustainably in a fair-trade working environment.

My Citizenry Organic Cotton Sheets Findings

Here’s a video of my findings on these sheets. I have reviewed dozens of organic cotton sheets so I have a lot of experience with different weaves and thread counts.

What struck me most about these sheets is that they are a 400 thread count weave. I really don’t recommend going beyond 400 thread count because they get too thick and reduce breathability. These sheets are very smooth and breathable and just look great on your bed. The next thing I look for is color. These have a consistent dye and should hold up well after many washes. It is hard to get color right with organic sheets because they can’t use the same chemicals as traditional sheets but I think they hit the mark with these navy sheets.

My Citizenry Sheets Final Thoughts

These days everything we buy seems to tell a story. Not only about where the product is from but who we are and what we stand for. The Citizenry understands that what you buy can make a difference in your life and the life of the people that made it and for that reason, I think they are justified in charging more than what you would pay for conventional sheets.
