Frequently Asked Questions
About the Brand
Where are your sheets made? +
Most of our sheets are made in our award-winning factory in India. The factory is independently certified for its compliance on all levels. We do have some products made in China, under our team’s supervision.
What is the inspiration behind the name California Design Den? +
Our brand was born in California and our team is based in California, where we still design all our products. Our name reflects one of the primary inspirations behind our brand: California, the state known for its harmony, energy, and innovation. We are dedicated to creating laid-back, beautifully crafted products designed with that same vitality and creativity in mind.
What certifications do your sheets carry? +
All of our sheets are independently tested and inspected to ensure thread count and a flawless final product. Most of our sheets are certified Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, meaning they are certified free of more than 300 chemicals. In addition, our organic cotton sheet sets are GOTS certified.
Is your packaging eco-friendly? +
Yes. At California Design Den, we believe in using sustainable, environmentally-friendly packaging whenever possible. We keep usage of any non-recyclable material to a bare minimum, and many of our bags are designed to be reused for home storage.
Can I review the sheets I bought from you? +
Absolutely. We will send a follow-up email after your order inviting you to provide feedback. We welcome and look forward to customer reviews!
Do I need to wash my sheets before I use them? +
For the ultimate sleep experience, we do recommend that you wash your new sheets prior to the first use.
What are the washing instructions for your products? +
Care of our bedding is simple. Wash at home on short wash and dry cycles, use a warm iron if desired, and use only non-chlorine bleach on colored items.
What can I do to ensure the longevity of my sheets? +
To keep your sheets beautiful for years to come, we recommend that you wash them separately from other items and avoid high heat, use mild detergents, avoid brighteners or bleaches when possible, and store them away from direct sunlight.
Do your sheets shrink? +
Although all cotton products shrink, we take great care during our finishing process to limit post-wash shrinkage to between 2 and 3%. This is above the retailer standard of 4%, and ensures sheets will fit well post wash.

Our fitted sheets are sized to fit both standard and deep mattresses. Please check our individual product listings and packaging for specific dimensions.
What is the right sheet size for my mattress? +
The size of sheet you need depends on the size of your mattress. Please look at the size chart on any of our sheet pages to learn more.
What is thread count, and why does it matter? +
Thread count reflects the number of horizontal (filling) threads and vertical (warp) threads in one square inch of fabric. This standard of measurement should only be used for cotton or cotton blend sheets, not those made of microfiber or other materials. Generally speaking, a higher thread count means a denser, more expensive fabric. But as individual tastes differ in terms of softness and weight of fabric, it's essential to keep more than thread count in mind when selecting sheets. At California Design Den, we use only the finest quality, single ply yarns to craft our sheets. This superior quality can be felt in every set of sheets we offer, from lush 400-thread-count sets to our ultimate, 1000-thread-count sets.
Do you offer organic products? +
Yes, we have authentic GOTS Certified 100% organic cotton sheets product as well. Just select the fabric quality in the filter to see your options.
Are your sheets wrinkle-free? +
We do not treat our cotton sheets with extra chemicals to make the bedding "wrinkle free." However, our cotton products feature superior quality yarns, weave, and finish, and are easily kept smooth by washing and drying them on quick cycles and removing them from your machine as soon as the cycle has ended.
What is a sateen weave? +
Let's not confuse this with satin fabric to start with. The “sateen” is a weave, where using 100% cotton yarns, we weave a fabric which has a sheen on 1 side and matt on the other side. It makes the fabric soft and lustrous.
What is percale? +
Percale weave is a classic weave: 1 thread up and 1 thread down. It produces a crisp, matte fabric, unlike sateen weave which features one more glossy side.
What is special about the dyes you use? +
Our revolutionary dyes help us to create brilliant sheets and pillowcases through an environmentally friendly process. Our top-quality colorfast dyes give every product we create vibrant, lasting color.
