How we created the best sheets that stay on the bed all night
Making the bed is something we all do. Daily for some, haphazardly for others, or perhaps only when we know guests will be visiting. However often you decide to make your bed, one thing remains true for everyone - retucking the sheets is always a pain.
Our founder, Sierra Wallizer, agrees. Always organized and orderly, making the bed each morning is a customary chore for Sierra. However, never one that could be accomplished without strife due to her sheet-hogging husband’s nocturnal habit of kicking the sheets out from under the mattress. She'd stay on him to re-tuck them in the morning, but he isn't the best at remembering (...or listening). What started off as a one-off wisecrack about him making the bed from now on quickly evolved into brainstorming and prototyping.
Kitelinens was born on a sleepy Saturday morning in a small New York City apartment. Our Stay-Tucked bed sheets that stay on and never come untucked are undoubtedly the best sheets that stay on the bed while you sleep, helping you save time, start your day off better, and even prevent those petty partner scuffles ;)
About our Founder, Sierra Wallizer
The idea for Kitelinens premium cotton bed sheets was started in the Big Apple, but our founder was raised on “Country Roads” and originally hails from West Virginia.
Family, love, authenticity, and support for one another is everything in West Virginia and Sierra wanted to create a product and brand that represented just that. Kitelinens is built on three brand principles that make up the fabric of who we are (quite literally!)
- Represent real people - Our bed sheets are made for he/him, she/her, they/them, YOU! We try to give you the best sheets, best customer service, and best experience...because everyone deserves the best.
- Emphasize innovation - We sweat the details in design, material, process and technique. We stay on top of quality and innovation.
- Customer first - Always be listening, learning, and pivot when necessary. We want to be the best in the business when it comes to your experience with Kitelinens. If we're not already, stay on us to be the best for you!
Honing in on the aspect of “family,” Sierra wanted a name for her brand that captured the feelings of one of her fondest and best childhood memories - On blue sky days as a young girl, she would run in between the hanging bed sheets in her grandmother's backyard where they would stay on to dry in the warm summer sun. Feelings of happiness and joy arise whenever she remembers her afternoons running in between those giant white “kites,” as she imagined the bed sheets to be.
These joyful, refreshing feelings are what Sierra brings to life through Kitelinens Stay-Tucked sheets - the best sheets that stay on the bed - because busy people deserve to have more happy moments in life, even during mundane daily tasks like making your bed.
Below are the hard facts for why these are the best sheets that stay on the bed:
A hybrid-design top-sheet
that you only need to tuck once (no more retucking your top sheet every morning; it will stay on).
prevent trapped body heat by giving you the option to kick one or both legs out of the bed sheets when you sleep. Finally, sheets that stay on AND put an end to hot sleeping!
Extra long top-sheet
that prevents any active sleeper from stealing (ehmm, hogging!) the covers in the middle of the night, all while still being cuddle-friendly. This extra length helps your top-sheet stay on your bed and stay on your body!
Deep pockets (Top-Sheet)
that gives your toes and feet the freedom to move without constriction, yet will stay on the bed all night long. No more trapped toes up in here = the best.
Deep pockets (Fitted Sheet)
that help keep those pesky fitted sheets from slipping off your mattress! Join the club of sleepers who get excited for their fitted sheet to finally stay on (we're a member!)
Accommodating for Children and Bad Backs
Our hybrid top-sheet design eliminates the need to lift the mattress when re-making the bed because of how they stay on the bed. Making the bed is now easy-peasy for kids AND the best relief for bad backs everywhere!
