PlushBeds Organic Cotton Sateen Sheets have a 300 thread count and lightweight, smooth, soft, luxurious feel. They drape well, are breathable but cozy, and are sewn with French seams by expert sewers for durability and style.
These sheets comprise long-staple cotton, meaning less risk of pilling and tearing. They’re also totally natural, with no dyes or bleaching, just the natural color of cotton.
Each sheet set includes:
- Fitted sheet with full elastic perimeter
- Flat sheet – generously sized
- Pillowcase(s) – oversized and two for all sizes except Twin and Twin XL (one only).
Despite the flat sheet being quite generous in size, the fitted sheet isn’t. This fully elasticated sheet only fits mattresses 13-inches deep. Even PlushBeds’ own mattresses plus topper are too deep for the sheets! And many other mattresses measure 15-inches deep these days, even without a topper.
Before you buy this sheet set, then, measure your mattress, especially as PlushBeds doesn’t do returns on opened bedding.
These sateen sheets come in a reusable fabric bag also made of organic sateen cotton. PlushBeds uses only GOTS organic cotton for the sheets, though the company also sells some microfiber (synthetic) sheets.
The company is also one of very few in the U.S. to have a factory certified by GOTS and GOLS. PlushBeds has been offering scholarships for environmental study for more than 15 years and also works with accountability partners to assess and lessen its own environmental impact.
PlushBeds shipping and returns
Like most bedding companies (there are some exceptions), PlushBeds doesn’t allow returns once your sheets are opened. This means once you’ve taken them out of the reusable fabric bag. The nice thing about these kinds of packaging is that you can get a good sense of how the sheets feel and their color from the bag itself – no need to pull the sheets out.
Once opened, you can’t return the sheets. Up until then, you can return the sheets in new, unopened condition for an exchange or refund (minus both-ways shipping costs).
PlushBeds Sateen Sheet care and maintenance
These sheets are easy to care for as you can wash them warm or cold and dry on low. Fluff the sheets between washer and dryer and remove right after the drying cycle is done to minimize wrinkles and avoid the need for ironing.
PlushBeds offers a 5-year warranty on its sheets, demonstrating the company’s confidence that these sheets will last a good few years without tearing or pilling, assuming you care for them properly.
Downsides to PlushBeds Organic Cotton Sateen Sheet Set
While PlushBeds sheets tick a lot of boxes for sustainability and style, their are a few downsides. First, the cost. Compared to other bedding brands such as Sol Organics, PACT, Homebird, and Avocado, which make equally sustainable and great quality sheets, PlushBeds sheets are very expensive.
The Split King size sheets are especially pricey, costing more than $100 more than the Cali King size set. Even the Twin size set costs over $200 without discounts, and the Queen size is more than twice the price of Homebird’s Queen size set.
Another main downside of PlushBeds sheets is that you only get one color option: Natural.
Finally, you can’t buy sheet separates from Plushbeds. This means you can’t easily replace a sheet or pillowcase if there’s a major spill or stain.
Final thoughts on PlushBeds Organic Cotton Sateen Sheet Set
PlushBeds aren’t my top choice for sustainable sheets (see those here), but they are a good option if you like the company, this style of sheet, and have a mattress that the sheets will fit.
If you’re excited about PlushBeds sheets and are also in the market for a new, non-toxic, eco-friendly mattress, hold off on buying the sheets. You could save yourself a lot of money with a little patience. That’s because PlushBeds often has sales where you buy a mattress and get bedding for free!
While we’re a little cold on the company’s sheets, we love PlushBeds mattresses. See our reviews here:
