Our bedroom is where we begin and end our days, so it should feel like a retreat—minimal and uncluttered. I love the look and texture of our bedding collection—it’s refined and layered with a lived-in comfort to help make this a place where you can truly be at rest. — Joanna

A Closer Look at Materials

Our collection is made with six key materials: linen cotton, cotton mélange, weekend velvet, textured cotton, stonewashed pebbled cotton, and block-printed textiles—to offer a little something for everyone.

01 Linen Cotton

Magnolia's Linen Cotton Duvet in Dusty Green
Magnolia's Linen Cotton Duvet in Dusty Green

The Details:

Soft, lived-in look

Thicker feel

Offers comfort all year long

To Wash + Dry:

Linen cotton is a more natural and low-maintenance type of bedding. A major benefit of the fabric is that it looks best when it’s slightly wrinkled—given its unique and beautiful texture. To clean: machine wash on cold, tumble dry on low, and remove promptly. You can also use non-chlorine bleach when needed. If you prefer a tidier look, a light steam after a wash is all it needs.

Applies to our Linen Cotton, Washed Linen Cotton, and Embroidered Stripe Linen Cotton bedding collections.

02 Cotton Mélange

Magnolia's Cotton Melange Duvet in Dove
Magnolia's Cotton Melange Duvet in Dove

The Details:

100% cotton

Durable and breathable

Just right for everyday use

To Wash + Dry:

For the best results, machine wash your cotton mélange bedding on a cold, gentle cycle with like colors. Tumble dry on low and remove promptly. If you like your bedding more refined, iron it for added freshness and fewer wrinkles.

03 Weekend Velvet

Magnolia's Velvet Quilt and Sham in Rustic Clay
Magnolia's Weekend Velvet Quilt and Sham in Rustic Clay

The Details:

100% cotton

Smooth, inviting feel

Ideal year-round

To Wash + Dry:

You’ll want to machine wash these pieces on cold, choosing a gentle cycle and soft detergent. Non-chlorine bleach may be used when necessary. If possible, velvet should be washed alone. Otherwise, try not to overload the washer with too many items. (This helps prevent excessive wrinkling.) Tumble dry on low with wool dryer balls and remove promptly. And again, feel free to iron it for a smoother appearance.

04 Textured Cotton

Magnolia's Optic White Textured Cotton Coverlet
Magnolia's Optic White Textured Cotton Coverlet

The Details:

100% cotton

Adds dimension + warmth

Easy to layer

To Wash + Dry:

More low-maintenance than you may think given the textured appearance—this material is easy to clean and machine washable! Just make sure to select a delicate wash cycle and gentler detergent, when possible. Given the natural fibers in cotton, it will soften with each wash, so there’s no need for fabric softeners.

Applies to our Textured Cotton Coverlets and Textured Stripe Coverlets.

05 Stonewashed Pebbled Cotton

Gets better with time

Features stitch detailing and garment-dyed color

To Wash + Dry:

Made to get better with each wash, this cotton quilt (with poly filling) is simple to keep clean and care for. Machine wash on cold with similar colors and tumble dry low. Using an iron is not recommended, but this easy, textured fabric shouldn’t need it anyway.

06 Flora Block Print

Magnolia's Flora Block Print Quilt has a corner folded down to reveal soft, textured cotton.

The Details:

55% linen, 45% cotton

Designed by Magnolia, crafted by skilled artisans in India

A breathable, cozy blend

To Wash + Dry:

Artisans first carve these patterns into wooden blocks, then precisely press them onto linen-cotton textiles that are hung to dry in the sun. Because each is one of a kind and created entirely by hand, slight variations may occur. To clean, wash on a gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry on low until damp, then take it out to air dry.

A Few FAQs

Taking care of your bedding will add to its longevity and help keep pieces feeling fresh and inviting. Here are a few additional questions you may have, answered!

How often should I wash my bedding?

There’s nothing quite like clean bedding straight out of the laundry! It’s recommended to wash your bedding (especially sheets) once a week, possibly bi-weekly depending on use.

How often should I replace my sheets + what are the signs of wear and tear?

Sheets should be replaced after 2-3 years.

Visible signs of wear and tear (thinning, yellowing, fading) are the most obvious indicators your sheets are past their prime, but there’s also a good chance you’ll start to feel it when they’re less cozy.

Other bedding pieces, like duvet covers, can be replaced a little later—around the 3-5 year mark.

How can I refresh my bedding in between washes?

Freshen up your bedding in between washes by gently misting your favorite scent of linen spray. We suggest lavender, eucalyptus, or jasmine—these are all light, calming scents to help you unwind.

Sweet dreams! We hope these bedding basics have been a helpful guide as you uncover your best night’s sleep.
