Parachute Home weaves a new take on luxurious sheets
thread-count has been an obsession of the bedding industry for decades, Ariel
Kaye tallies comfort and success with a different yardstick: The founder of Venice-based
Parachute Home, which makes luxurious and affordable bedding, creates 100% Egyptian cotton sheeting that
gets softer with use. Made in Italy, the sheets are unique in other ways too:
Kaye skips tons of options and instead offers only two fabric choices — percale
or sateen — and three colors — white, powder or ash. And here’s an even cooler
detail: some of her sets, including the Venice Bedding Set, skip the top sheet
and offer a duvet cover instead. Result? A far more laid-back look and an
easier job making the bed in the morning.
perhaps the bedding’s very best feature is its 1-to-1 giving back model: For every Venice set sold,
Parachute sends an insecticide-treated bed net to Nothing But Nets, which can
reduce the rates of malaria by as much as 90% in impacted areas.
