Frette has a legendary reputation for producing the finest linens in the world. They have notably graced the banquet halls of the Titanic and the altar of St. Peter’s Basilica. Every self-respecting luxury hotel proudly announces that they feature the company’s robes. So, can one set of fancy bedding really be that much better than the rest? How could I not investigate?
On the surface, the story seems legit. Shortly after the company’s founding in France in 1860, it relocated to Northern Italy for closer proximity to the finest mills, materials, and artisans. (“Frette” is pronounced the Italian way, with emphasis on the second e.) That’s some dedication to quality—and there’s no question that the sheets are sublime to the touch, or that the detailing is meticulous.
