WHAT WE LOVE
French Linen • Clever Design • Style • Convenience
The linen from Primary Bedding goes through a final stone wash process. Special white volcanic stones soften the linen and produce the vintage color and chic style to this bedding.
Because the top sheet attaches to the duvet, there are no more tangled sheets at your feet, No more searching for the sheet at night. And in the morning you just pull up the duvet, straighten and you are on your way - the need to tuck in the sheet when making up your bed is eliminated.
The design of the top sheet is ingenious. It is slightly smaller than the duvet cover so there is no extra fabric that has to be tucked in.
The Primary team identified the best supplier of French Linen for their bedding. French linen is considered to be the finest linen. France offers the best environment to grow and produce flax, the plant that linen is made from, plus it's a renewable resource which we like. French linen doesn’t pill, stretch or lose its shape, and it’s a durable fabric that softens with every wash. Primary chose linen because it is far superior to cotton. it’s stronger, more breathable, and lasts longer.

The duvet cover and top sheet attach to each other via snaps on the sides. You simply snap the closures and place on the fitted sheet so when you arrange the duvet the top sheet does the same. Making your bed just became so quick and simple!
A queen sets start at $269 for a duvet cover and top sheet. You can purchase 2 color shams separately. There are four colors Nature, Charcoal Gray, Rosewood and Pure White available for the duvet cover. The pillow cases, top and fitted sheets are white and can be purchased for $45 & $89 respectively.
The fitted sheet features an elastic strip a quarter up from the bottom corner to keep the sheet in place. Our testing found it really worked well even with a 14 inch high mattress.
GOOD TO KNOW
Primary Goods sheets comfortably fit mattresses up to 14 inches high.
Primary does offer a 'Forever Warranty' — if anything that’s defective, or not up to the standard they promise they will exchange it for you — no questions asked.
The first time you wash the sheets there is shedding fluff in the dryer. This minimized over the next three washings. The good news, even when taking out the sheets on the first dryer run, they had no little threads hanging. After putting the sheets on the mattress, it was a soft comfy feel. Not scratchy or itchy, just a cool touch on the skin.
The duvet cover has loops in the corners to hold the insert in position.
POINTS OF DESTINCTION
THE FEEL + UNDER THE COVER
The fabric is naturally soft and cooling. The French Linen continues to soften with each washing. There is a wrinkled look unless you want to iron the sheets. We suggest taking out the sheets while still a little damp and then ironing for best results. For those who like the relaxed vintage look, skip the ironing. Take out the sheets when dry, shake and straighten out wrinkles on the mattress. Perfect Style.
Primary French linen goes through a stonewashed process which gives the bedding a soft texture and a more casual appearance.
