Malouf Fine Linens
on July 18, 2012
Tried other brands for my son's Tempurpedic bed but they didn't quite keep up the promise of deep pockets or overall lasting quality. Ordered Malouf bed linens basically because the reviews were worth looking into and I needed something dust mite resistant for allergies. Received quickly - no problem. Environmentally friendly packaging and easy to open. The brushed microfiber sheets are extremely soft and are comfortable to sleep on. Only washed once and haven't noticed any shrinkage, like with other brands even on the first wash. Really appreciate the wide elastic band around the fitted sheets as well as the roomy allowance which made for a secure fit. This aspect of this sheet set is by far the most appreciated detail of the order. Our family normally bans products made in China, and I was a little surprised to find these sheets were in fact, made in China, as there wasn't any detail to the trademark. We will however, be ordering more of these sets and are fine with making Malouf the exception to the rule. We purchased from Amazon because we receive the most satisfactory service here.
UPDATE: May 2013: Update: Almost a year later and these sheets continue to maintain their softness, shape and integrity. Deep pockets continue to conform and have not lost their elasticity. Probably the best allergen sheets we've ever purchased. Have purchased more sets in the interim. Highly recommend.
UPDATING APRIL 12, 2015. Comment for Color: White. Purchased in Feb 2015, and they have begun to show signs of heavy wear although not the case. Also, the (white) color has since last month of March (2015) began 'piling' - the sheet is not holding up at all either through wear or elasticity on corners and body. Looks a year old when in fact, it's only 3 months young. VERY disappointed. TWO colors have resulted in poor performance now: white and blue. Lost a star for this - the 'Made in China' label is living up to its reputation. Not worth the money to have such poor results in less than a six month period. Would still recommend the other colors: black, and pink because I've had them now for more than a year, almost two in fact, and they are still in excellent condition: not having faded, or even started to 'pil' or loose shape. Just not as happy with this company as I thought I was earlier.
UPDATE April 20, 2015. The company representative contacted me regarding my review and apologized for the poor quality I found in the white sheet set and sent me another complete set free of charge. Apparently, Malouf's representatives takes note of reviews for their products. I didn't contact - they contacted me. This shows they not only care about their product but also how their product stands up to usage. There was a different feel to the texture of the sheet set I received. Like a stronger weave than that of the first set. The company representative apologized for the defect of the original set and hoped the replacement will stand up to the quality Malouf advertises. In a few months time, I will update yet again with the quality of the white microfiber bed sheets.
