The Linen Times

Italian bedding with a local twist


Barbacci makes its bed linens custom to order in Florence Italy. But included in the company’s 2018 catalog was its new Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, and Tucson collections. We got ahold of pictures and figured we would share.

These styles are traditional, but as Barbacci goes – they are made to order and you can choose from a wide variety of fabrics and color combinations. It’s a little bit complicated, but if you like what you see just let us know and we can break things down for you.

Bella Notte: a look at what’s to come…


Bella Notte has announced two exciting additions for the fall. We do not yet have swatches nor pricing just yet – but wanted to put the word out.


Bella Notte’s new Seraphina sheets feature a luscious blend of silk and lyocell – the same sustainable wood fiber featured in SDH’s best selling Legna Classic (as well as Bella Notte’s own Madera Luxe). Lyocell is a washable, sustainable fiber that is, generally, silky yet breathable. The addition of silk here should lend extra strength (and silkiness of course) to a fiber that otherwise does not always hold up as well as other fine threads.

Billowy and silky against the skin, this dreamy fabric comes in a duvet cover, fitted and flat sheets as well as pillowcases. Offered in Bella Notte’s full color palette, Seraphina provides a new and exciting option for those looking to coordinate with existing Bella Notte bedding collections.

Bella Notte Seraphina

(UPDATE – as of May 22, the launch of Seraphina is now on hold due to concerns regarding tariffs)


An exceptionally soft pastel in linen, a smoky pastel in cotton, and a sparkling, silvery grey in silk and satin – “Sterling” is to be the newest addition to Bella Notte’s color palette.


Farewell, Goodbye
