For the past decade, Wayzata boutique Lussuria Lini had been one of the few places in Minnesota to find the most luxurious of luxury linens. Recently, the shop reopened in a new location as Highcroft Fine Linens & Home, stocking a selection of home décor and accessories, gifts, stationery, and more alongside its extensive collection of fine linens for bed, bath, and table.
While a high thread count is key, where the cotton is grown and how it is woven also impact quality. Highcroft sells cotton sheets made from 100-percent Egyptian cotton, considered to be the best (and softest) in the world due to the strength and long length of its fibers. In fact, Highcroft says a 220 thread-count sheet made from Egyptian cotton can feel softer than a 500 thread-count sheet that uses a lesser grade of cotton. Additionally, many of Highcroft’s linens are manufactured in centuries-old Italian mills, known as the world’s foremost experts in weaving techniques and technology.
Some of these gold-standard linens can cost more than $400 for a set. But with proper care, they can actually improve over time, growing softer to the touch, and last for 10 years or more. (And keep this in mind: We spend about a third of our lives between the sheets.)
Highcroft’s staff streamlines the process of shopping for bedding by first identifying a client’s sleep profile—such as the warm sleeper, the cold sleeper, the co-sleeper, and the sleeper with a pet. Then, they help the client design the bed from the top down, sheet by sheet.
Like its linens, Highcroft’s home goods and gifts feature luxe touches and fine craftsmanship. Gold-tone candlestick holders, brass coasters, ceramic pitchers, hand-turned wooden spoons, and blown-glass carafes are stocked alongside high-end, natural laundry products from the Laundress, beautifully packaged French soaps, hand-poured diffusers, natural rock salt crystal potpourri, and cashmere and alpaca loungewear.
While the added home goods and gift items means less floor space dedicated to fine fabrics, the store’s best addition may be a design area that allows clients to explore custom linen options and compare patterns and styles with ease.
