18 Best Bed Linen Brands in Australia


When it comes to buying quality bed linen in Australia, you’ll want something that keeps you cool in the summer and stands the test of time. Data shows Aussies spend roughly 8 hours a day lying in the haven of their bed, so it’s no surprise that the comfort, durability and sustainability of linen bed sheets are the top factors we consider when buying linen.

We’ve done the hard work and rested our heads on countless linen bed sheets to bring you a list of the best brands in Australia right now.

1. The Sheet Society

Dreamt up by Hayley and Andy Worley in 2017 after they realised the industry was in dire need of a wake-up call, The Sheet Society stocks a number of quality bed sheet options, including their famous 100% pure certified French linen flax. This is one of the best bed linen brands known for its quality, with durable, breathable and easy-to-care-for sheets. Best of all they include thoughtful features like invisible zippers instead of buttons that we love!

If you’ve never tried French Flax Linen sheets before you’re in for a surprise, the comfort levels just get better and better as you sleep. We’ve been testing these sheets for the better part of 18 months and have only just found wear in the centre of the sheets, something that’s bound to happen to linen eventually. Now we’re deciding how to replace our sheets, but it’s not easy with so many different trend-driven colours, designs, and fabrics via the link below.

What is Linen?

Linen is a natural fibre made from the stalk and roof of a flax plant. The flax plant is an eco-friendly, resilient and sustainable plant that produces very strong fibres. These strong fibres are woven into linen fabric, blessing us with the beautiful linen we are so lucky to get our hands on. Flax is grown in cool and gentle climates like Western Europe and India. The flax is then spun, dyed, woven and sewn.

Why Is It Used for Sheets?

Linen is a great fabric for sheets, offering supreme comfort and plenty of other unique benefits. Linen is adaptable to all seasons, so you don’t have to buy separate summer and winter bed linen. This is because linen is highly breathable and naturally absorbent, so you won’t be sweating under the covers if you live in a warmer climate. Linen is also suited for winter as it is a textural fabric, meaning that it softens with each wash to create a warm and cosy feel. The durable nature of the linen fibres also makes linen excellently suited for bed sheets, as you can keep linen bedding for years and years. Another reason why linen is used for sheets is how easy it is to care for, the rustic soft crinkle in the linen aesthetic, meaning linen sheets never look like they need an iron- straight out of the wash or dryer, and you’re good to go!

What are the Best Types of Linen for Sheets?

There are various types of linen, which are generally based on where the linen is manufactured and their different production methods. Some kinds of linen are much better suited to being used as bed linen. Irish linen, Belgian linen and Japanese linen are some good examples of quality bed linen. These types of linen are spun from 100% flax fibres and are therefore extremely pure and very comfortable. These linens also are highly durable and wear well with age and use, making them great types of linen for sheets.

Is Linen Better Than Cotton?

Whilst cotton can be lovely, linen well and truly overtakes cotton as the preferred choice of fabric. This is because linen is more sustainable, durable and has a better texture and feel. Comfort is also better guaranteed with linen, as the fabric is much more breathable than cotton. Linen is also much easier to wash and maintain, as it is incredibly lightweight. Linen gets softer with every wash and is, therefore, a more sustainable fabric than cotton and will last you for years to come. Linen is also moth-resistant and anti-microbial!
