Heirloom-quality linens–the kind that are painstakingly embroidered by hand, on the finest percale–are a rarity in our modern-day world. All the more reason to savor the elegance of Francesca's beautiful tone-on-tone embroidery, embellished completely by hand. An intricate floral scrollwork pattern, bordered by a delicate Italian lace inset, frames each piece of this luxurious bedding ensemble.
