As soon as someone touches these sheets they will definitely understand why they have “Luxury” to their title.
Bamboo sheets, in general, are known for being extremely soft and lightweight but the added sateen weave to the sheets gives it an ultra-sophisticated and silky feel.
These sheets are 500 thread count also feel slightly heavier and more substantial than other bamboo sheets I have tried.
Even though these sheets had a thicker quality to them, generated by the sateen weave, I had no problems with breathability and felt my temperature stayed stable during my review.
The Bamboo Sheets Shop luxury sheets come in a variety of neutral colors, including Ivory and Tan and a darker Charcoal, which I am reviewed.
Customers can machine wash and dry the sheets – they should follow the directions indicated on the tag. Although they can throw them in the dryer, individuals should try to treat them a little more delicately than the average sheets.
With proper care, bamboo sheets can be very durable – that means avoiding harsh detergents, bleach of any sort and drying on a lower heat setting.
Bamboo sheets have the tendency to wrinkle easily, and these are no exception. I suggest that people can iron them if the wrinkles become bothersome, but that could take a while if someone has a large bed.
Based on my experience, it is best to take them out and put them on the bed immediately after they’ve finished drying. Consumers should still be prepared for some wrinkling after a few nights of sleep.
Things To Consider Before Buying
Bamboo sheets are believed to hold many of the same natural and eco-friendly properties that the bamboo plant contains. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, deodorizing and moisture-wicking.
There is some debate as to whether bamboo sheets – which are often made from rayon or viscose from bamboo – still contain these same qualities after the manufacturing process.
The Federal Trade Commission warns customers that when bamboo is processed into rayon, “no trace of the original plant is left.” When I read this I can’t help but be skeptical about some of the promises that are made with bamboo sheets. But regardless, they are still incredibly soft and luxurious feeling.

Sheets from the Bamboo Sheets Shop are also OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified. This is a good thing to look for with sheets. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a well-known independent environmental testing and certification system that works to make sure harmful substances stay out of textiles.
On top of the certification, Bamboo Sheets Shop says their sheets are environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable. According to them, that means sun and soil microorganisms can biodegrade the natural cellulose fiber in bamboo.
These sheets do not contain anti-wrinkling agents or chemicals and I’ve never heard of biodegradable bamboo sheets before. I think it speaks to their manufacturing process and environmental considerations.
I thought Bamboo Sheet Shop’s Luxury 500-thread count luxury bamboo sheets lived up to their name with their quality, eco-friendly considerations, and silky-soft feel.
Their sateen weave and thicker feel make them feel high end but substantial. They come in a variety of great colors and can be machine washed and dried – just make sure to follow the care instructions carefully.
People will need to be prepared for wrinkles, which is common with all bamboo sheets. The sheets may be on the pricier end for bamboo sheets, but if someone wants to splurge, they probably will not be disappointed.
