Boll & Branch are one of the most asked about sheets on my site. They have a reputation for quality, and though definitely not cheap, they are at a reasonable price point for 100% organic bedding.
Overall I’m a big fan of the sheets, though I had a few complaints as well. These sheets offer a particular feel and it may not match everyone’s preferences. They’re also on the more expensive side – so read on for the full Boll & Branch review and decide if they’re going to be a great fit (or not!).
Who Will Love Boll & Branch?
- Those who want organic bedding – Boll & Branch is 100% organic cotton with non-toxic dyes
- Those who prefer a soft luxurious feel – these sheets are a Sateen weave, giving them a nice silky feel
- Those who value tasteful and classic design – Boll & Branch does offer a few designs and patterns, sticking to a very classic look that I really like compared to other options
Who May Not Like Boll & Branch?
- Those who don’t value organic bedding – though reasonably priced for the quality, individuals who don’t feel the need to make organic fabrics a priority can probably get similar quality at a lower price (I’d look at my Brooklinen review)
- Those who prefer a Percale weave – Percale is a dry crispy sheet, vs a more silky feel from Boll & Branch. One type of feel isn’t necessarily better than another, it really comes down to personal preference, but Boll and Branch only offer one type.
To start, the packaging of Boll & Branch is really first class. The box comes tied up with a ribbon, and the sheets come in three separate wraps tied together by a second ribbon.
After going through the wrapping, I was left with the sheets, with each component individually wrapped.
I bought the pleated sheet set (twin size), which includes a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillowcases. There are several colors available in the hem, and other styles include hemmed, banded, trimmed, seedling, and children’s hemmed.
Out of the box, the sheets were already pretty soft, and with this pair, I actually used them one night before washing. Still, after two washes the sheets felt even softer and fit the bed even better.
The sheets were a great fit. Note that the fitted sheet is actually quite deep, and in my opinion will fit a very thick mattress. I had it on a relatively thin mattress (~8 inches thick) and it managed to fit this size as well.
I will say that the pillowcases looked great, but I put them on some pillows that were slightly smaller than non-standard pillows, and they did hang off it a little bit and hid the beautiful pleated pattern. Those planning on making this sheet set look as great as possible will need to consider the pillow size.
Sheet Construction and Company
This company definitely values eco-friendly and fair trade practices, and thus the sheets are 100% organic cotton and are manufactured in a Certified Fair Trade factory in India. The sheets have 300 thread count in a Sateen weave.
The company offers a variety of other textiles, including duvets, shams, towels, knit blankets, and scarves. For all products, the company sells direct to the consumer to deliver a luxury-quality product at a more affordable price.
Other things to note
- They allow returns within 30 days of purchase (note: shipping is not refunded)
- Boll & Branch donates to Not For Sale, a non-profit that fights against human trafficking
I really love the feel of these sheets (I’m a big fan of quality Sateen weave) and love what the company stands for (eco-friendly and fair trade). They are a bit pricier than other sheets I’ve reviewed, but in my mind are still a tremendous value. In terms of comfort and feel, they might be my favorite sheets reviewed to date. Overall highly recommended.
