There are a few things we've come to expect from Los Angeles based linen brand Matteo: local and small batch production, epic semi-regular sales, and luxe sheets, shams, and more in an ultra-minimalist color palette. The last of those, however, is now only partly true.
As of right now, those looking to revamp their sleeping situations by upgrading to super-soft bedding — while injecting a bit of color — can order Matteo's best-selling sheets and more in more saturated colors like Honey, Mauve, Mica, and Earth. The hues, which are created utilizing the company's eco-friendly garment-dying process, also extend into its bathroom and apparel collections.
This marks the first time in Matteo's 20 years in business that shades beyond beige, grey, black, and white have been included in the line. We've got a feeling the rich, yet subtle colors, which are created consciously with low-impact dyes, will be a mega hit with customers who already know what it's like to snuggle up in the brand's luxe linens. And for those who never indulged because they desired more vibrant hues, your time is now.
