This 100% cotton matelassé blanket cover features a basketweave pattern and a simple hem around the border. The matching shams feature a corresponding flange to complete the pretty look. When Gennaro Sferra founded his eponymous company in Venice in 1891, it specialized in lace cuffs and collars. It has since expanded to become a renowned source of luxurious towels and bedding--in fact, its bath and bed linens can be found in the White House, the Vatican, and the homes of numerous celebrities. Like them, we love Sferra’s wonderfully soft bedding and towels, and we’re certain you will too.
