Sferra Fine Linens

​The story of SFERRA is not just a history of fine linen-making; it’s one of family, determination, and the American Dream itself.

More than 125 Years of Fine Craftsmanship and Innovation

The company was founded in 1891 Italy, when Gennaro Sferra first set foot on the cross-Atlantic steamer which would carry him to America. It was a family history of craftsmanship that enabled him to sell the exquisite handmade lace that would become his future.

Capturing the fashion of the day, he sold Italian lace, collars, and cuffs to society’s tastemakers as they vacationed at seaside resorts up and down the East Coast. This established Sferra’s reputation for offering only the finest and most exclusive fine linens. 

Today, SFERRA crafts the luxury of the everyday, where beauty and comfort are woven into every room of your home.
Fine tailoring, impeccable craftsmanship and unparalleled innovation are the mainstay of everything they do.

What Distinguishes SFERRA Fine Linens?

The Finest Raw Materials

Only the very finest raw materials will result in the finest linens. SFERRA is renowned for sourcing the world’s most sought-after natural fibers and spinning the finest of yarns to weave luxury linens of unrivaled quality, durability, and comfort. Sferra was the first to introduce bed linens woven from Giza 45, regarded worldwide as the highest grade of Egyptian cotton.

Expert Italian Craftsmanship

For linen connoisseurs, there is no equivalent to Italian-woven fabrics. Put simply, Italians are recognized throughout the world as the absolute masters of the craft. Theirs is a rich history, grounded in more than three centuries of small, family-owned textile mills dotting the Alpine foothills of Northern Italy, where SFERRA linens are still crafted today, continuing a heritage of unsurpassed workmanship and artistry.

Design Details

At SFERRA, the divine lies in the details: the forethought that goes into all the particulars in their lines means they have carefully considered all the functionality desired in the luxurious products they design.

These refinements show through in the finishing touches of a well-crafted hemstitch. It’s in the generous sizing of their bed linens, allowing extra fabric not only for shrinkage, but also, a luxuriant turn-back on flat sheets. It’s in the all-around elastic of their fitted sheets, so you’ll never find yourself short-sheeted. It’s in the corner ties on the inside of their duvet covers, designed to thread through the corner loop of their down stuffers to keep duvets firmly in place.
