Bamboo Sheet Set

Burgundy Sheet Set by Zen Bamboo

We all want smooth, soft and silky feeling sheets on our bed but, the cost is normally out of my price range personally.  Side note:  Not too silky though; I have had silk sheets and regretted them immediately due to slipping issues.  In steps the hot trend bamboo as a textile.

What are bamboo textiles?  Bamboo textiles are cloth, yarn and clothing made from bamboo fibers and in recent years a range of technologies have been developed allowing bamboo fiber to be used in a wide range of textile and fashion applications.  Modern cloth labeled bamboo is usually rayon but, the sheets by Zen Bamboo have been blended with brushed microfiber; 40% bamboo and 60% brushed microfiber (AKA polyester).  This blend makes these sheets incredibly thick yet soft in feel and more durable than standard cotton sheets.

I chose the burgundy color because my favorite color is red in all its different hues and blends; matches my wood décor and burgundy curtains beautifully.  With this being a dark color I washed the whole set (fitted sheet, top sheet, and two pillow cases) first to clear out any dye as a safety precaution.  I had my fluffy cream-colored body pillow case in with these during the dry cycle and the color did transfer a bit; personally, don’t care but, just be mindful if you don’t want color transferred.  I have had no instances of pilling or the seams coming undone either; seems to be very well made. Fit my king-sized mattress perfectly and I also have a cushioned “water-proof” fitted mattress cover on top as the first line of defense and had no issues with the bamboo fitted sheet going over these.  I have not had the sides nor corners pop back off; everything has stayed put so far.  The elasticity is holding true and the sewing around it is solid and well stitched; no frays nor loose thread.

The pillowcases that come with the king-sized sheet set are also of matching size, king-sized and not standard.  I only have standard-sized pillows so, I just fold the excess underneath and carry on with my sleep. I have other cotton and microfiber sheet sets but, have never owned bamboo blended sheets so, when in comparison to what I am used to, these are thicker, softer and much more comfortable to sleep in.  I don’t get into the whole thread count and Egyptian cotton debates; I like what I like and I love the color and feel of these plus, fits my king-sized bed amazingly.

Disclosure: I received this king-sized sheet set in burgundy from the Restoration Goods Store discounted however; this in no way influenced my review. I chose to write this review and was under no obligation to do so. I only write honest reviews regardless of whether I purchased a product at full price, at a discount, or received it free.
