How to care for your fine linens:



High quality sheets should last anywhere from 7 to 10 years, although much of that longevity is determined by the care given to them. Here are some basic steps to follow to keep your sheets nice for years to come:

1. Wash your fine linens separately from other fabrics to avoid abrasion and damage to your sheets.

2. Wash with a mild detergent. We recommend The Laundress products; they are slightly more expensive than grocery store brands but highly concentrated so it takes less per wash. Fine linens do not need to be washed in cold water but hot water and hot heat will damage the fibers and cause breakage and pilling, so it’s best to wash with warm water on a gentle cycle and dry on a low heat.

3. Store bed linens in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.

4. Following these simple steps should provide you with many years of good night’s sleep. Remember that your bedding is an investment so investing a little time and money into the care will be worth it for the life of your sheets.

Welcome to the World of Juliska!

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF JULISKA!

WHO IS JULISKA?
"Juliska" is our ever-present muse. She embodies a fresh take on classic design – timeless European elegance updated with imaginative new interpretations and a healthy dose of modern-day functionality. She represents for us an entertaining and living attitude – timeless, romantic and always effortlessly chic.

JULISKA HERITAGE
Juliska’s rich European heritage spans six centuries and many of the original glass silhouettes can be found in museums around the world. Our designs combine these exquisite historic themes with imaginative new interpretations.

JULISKA GLASSWARE
Juliska glass is mouth-blown by artisans in the hills outside Prague. The unique composition of Juliska glass allows it to be blown especially thin, making the glass an unexpected pleasure to drink from and to handle. Being handmade, no two pieces of Juliska are identical. Each has its own individual character – small bubbles, slight color and size variations. Uniqueness is thus guaranteed. Each piece of Juliska glass is individually signed, as a guarantee of its authenticity and quality.

JULISKA CERAMICS
Our ceramics echo the same rich depth of color and artisnal production as Juliska glassware. We selected exquisite transparent glazes on a tough stoneware ceramic body. This Portuguese stoneware ensures everyday practicality for all our ceramic collections as it is freezer, oven (up to 500 °F), microwave and dishwasher safe and highly resistant to chipping.
