CASCINA

The Cascina collection is designed for those who love to decorate their bedroom with simplicity and elegance. The applied border in matching color is further refined by three thin embroidered lines in the same color of the background: a perfect combination to lend the bed a clean and unique look. The silky feel of the Egyptian cotton made with long fibers, makes this collection extremely luxurious in both the design and the touch. Duvet covers, flat sheets, pillowcases, bottom sheets (with or without elastic), quilted coverlets and any other item can be produced in any size and customized to the preferred color and fabric combinations. Background and borders in 39 colors (refer to Raffaello collection). Made in Italy

 

CARE

BED LINEN

Signoria Firenze utilizes the finest quality natural fabrics – 100% Egyptian combed cotton, linen and wool to achieve luxury and durability while still maintaining exceptional design elements that will bring elegance, joy and harmony to your home.

 By following proper care instructions our products will enhance the comfort and style of your home for many years. It is important to remember, nearly all of our fabrics are made from natural fibers that can be machine-washed at home; however, please be sure to read the laundering instructionsbelow and suggested care label on each item for best results.

General Care Guidelines

Pre-Wash: always pre-wash new bed linens before using. This first wash is important for setting the threads, preserving the fabric's beauty and prolonging its life. Be sure to fully unfold and use minimal liquid detergent.  

For the first pre-wash please refer to the care label on each item and our machine washing suggestions below.

Use of a fabric softener (liquid or dryer sheets) is not recommended for any fine linens, as it coats and weakens natural fibers.

Detergents: Your Signoria luxury linens will soften naturally with frequent use. A mild detergent that is appropriate for luxury linen is recommended. Detergents with bluing agents or whiteners are not recommended. LINENWASH is suggested for tough stain removal washings.

Rotation: We recommend using at least three sets of bed linens in rotation: one on the bed, one in the laundry and one in the linen closet. This will afford each set proper rotation and a rest from use and a rest from wash.  We also recommend that you wash matching linens (e.g. sheets and pillowcases) together, as each piece should be cared for similarly, regardless of whether or not it is stained or soiled.

Shrinkage: Linens washed in hot water or dried at hot temperatures will shrink excessively. Luke warm or cold wash and low heat dry or line-dry are the usual recommended settings.

Our linens are sized to allow for 3%-4% shrinkage in length & width.

 

Garment Dyed Collections: These bed linens were dyed & finished in a special production process to obtain its vintage look. Exposure to direct sunlight or the use of common stain removal chemicals can result in discoloration. These items have already been prewashed and shrunk during the special finishing process.

 

 Machine Washing

 

·       Do not overload the washing machine

·       Use a mild detergent

·       Wash bed linens separate from other fabrics especially synthetics that may pill and affect the smoothness of the bed linens.

·       Linens should be separated into light and dark colors and washed separately from anything else

·       Wash 100% linen and linen/cotton blends separately to avoid abrasion from other fibers especially synthetic fibers. Wash delicate cycle cold water.

·       Do not pour detergent directly on fabric; add the detergent to the water first and then add your linens.

·       Do not use bleach or detergents with bluing agents or whiteners- these may weaken fibers and cause them to yellow.

·       Unless linens are very stained or soiled you may reduce the recommended amount of detergent.

·       Use a delicate spin cycle

·       Remove washed bedding promptly from the washing machine. This helps reduce wrinkling and minimizes the risk of color bleeding from a dark-colored border onto a light background. Shaking damp linens out before drying on a low heat setting will also help reduce wrinkles. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets are not recommended as their chemicals prevent the bed linens from naturally becoming softer over time. Fine linens will begin to soften after 3-4 washings.

 

Drying

·       Shake out linens before placing in the dryer

·       Do not use dryer sheets or softeners

·       Do not overload the dryer

·       Tumble dry low heat or delicate cycle; remove while still damp for less wrinkling

·       Cotton velvet should not be tumbled dried; lay flat to dry

 

Ironing

·       Iron while still damp for best and easiest results

·       Use steam and iron settings for appropriate fabrics types; cotton, linen etc.

·       Sateen and Jacquards: iron on the reverse side

·       Embroidered items and quilted fabrics: iron on the reverse side to preserve the 3 dimensional embroidery

·       Do not iron velvet or hang in a bathroom during a shower

·       Quilted fabrics: iron if desired, low heat
