Is Delorme not even in the same ballpark as the top-end Italians. Would it be the Alfred Sargent to Frette's Edward Green, or the C&J to Frette's Ferragamo (e.g. actually likely better made/value)?
Has anyone heard of Sferra Bros? Are they extremely variable.
It depends what you're looking for. If you need fancy designs, possibly with some hand-stitching, you're stuck with those brands (and I'd include sferra bros in the mix).
If you just want the luxurious feel of high-end sheets, I'm sure you can find a local place that will make you sheets from fabrics of your choice. The place I'm going to use for my new bed does this stuff to order using some very high-quality fabrics and it costs less than purchasing a brand-name sheet set. I'm sure you can find something similar in DC.
I'm also considering www.venusrising.com
as I've heard some really good things about them. Selection isn't great though.
