Dream Weavers: A Look Behind Frette Linens

You know it’s top-notch, but did you know this luxe company has crafted linens for foreign embassies worldwide? We didn’t think so. Read on for more reasons to indulge.

A History of Frette Linens

Fit for Royalty
In 1881, Frette became the official linen purveyor to the Italian Royal Family. Soon after? Over 500 noble European dynasties followed suit.

Gold Standard
Frette’s accolades began rolling in during the late 1880s. The first: a gold medal at the National Exhibition in Milan.

Made to Be Treasured
The altar cloth at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome was created by a Frette artisan in the 1890s. A replica of the original remains there today.

Five-Star Favorite
Celeb-frequented hotels – from the Mandarin Oriental, Boston to The Peninsula Tokyo (plus 748 others) – dress their beds in Frette linens.
