olive basics fitted sheet


good for your body – a true, drab olive

Available in a selection of depths to accommodate different sized mattresses, our fitted sheets have elastic around the entire top and bottom ends of the bed (not just the corners) so that they won’t pop off in the night. You can find a lot more information about them in the tabs below. Just like everything at bed these are all sold individually so you can mix and match colours.

  • 100% cotton
  • machine wash & dry
  • made by us in Burnaby, BC

COVID-19 update – Our items are made by hand, we may not have every item in-stock and may need to make your item(s). In order to adhere to physical distancing, our production will be slower than normal as we cannot have as many people working in the same place at the same time. If your order is being shipped, we will be in touch when your order is ready and provide a tracking number. If you are waiting to pick up once the store reopens, we’ll be in touch once the Public Health Authorities give everyone the go ahead. Thank you for your support and patience at this time and feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions.

As with any handmade product you will find small variations between finished items. Small variations of tone or specks of other colours within an item, as well as occasional small slubs in the cotton and sewing should be embraced as signs of a genuine handmade product.

All dyeing is done by hand in small batches (about a set of queen-sized items, i.e. duvet cover, fitted sheet & 2 pillowcases), so dyelots will vary slightly. If you order several items in the same colour, we will make every effort to dye as many of them together as possible, however it is possible you may receive items from slightly different dye lots. The typical variation in colour that may occur can be seen by viewing all the images on a colour’s category page. Marble dyes have the most variance in colour within an item, each item has a unique, random pattern that can include large clusters or small flecks of other colours such as fuschia, orange or blue, depending upon how individual dyes disperse. Every computer monitor will display colours somewhat differently, so use our colour images as guidelines – the actual colour may not be exactly as displayed by your computer. For an explanation about why colours sometimes look different online and in person, check out our about colour page. Following our washing instructions will keep colours true for a long time, while the cotton will get softer and softer, a lot like your favourite, old jeans.

All measurements are approximate.

The cotton muslin that we use for our bedding is 63 inches (160cm) wide. This obviously limits us in how wide we can go without seams. Luckily, we’ve found a way to make our bedding where the seams are in areas where they don’t impact the comfort and use of our sheets. For instance, our flat and fitted sheets have seams that fall generally along the sides of the mattress. The dashed lines in the following photos outline where the seams will be in each sheet. For a more detailed explanation of our bedding please see the about our bedding page.

single fitted sheet

single fitted sheet seams

Single beds are 39 inches (99cm) across so we have to add a small panel along one side of the sheet. This falls entirely below the level of the top of the mattress with the seam running along the bed. There is no seam on the other side.

double fitted sheet


Double beds are 54 inches (137cm) across so we have to add a small panel along each side of the sheet. These fall along the side of the mattress with the seams right along the edge of the bed. This is mirrored on the other side.

queen fitted sheet

Queen beds are 60 inches (152cm) across, we have to add a panel along the right and left side of the mattress. The seams run along the top, very close to to each edge. There’s also a dart in each corner for a drop corner style allowing the sheet to fit a range of depths and easing the tension to help it last longer.

king fitted sheet

King beds are 80 inches (203cm) across. We’ve found slightly wider muslin for king sheets that allows us to move the seams to the edges, similarly to our queen and double sheets. We still add a panel along each side with the seams running along the right and left edge of the bed.

All bedding should be washed prior to first use. Always wash in COLD water and tumble dry HOT. Dyed bedding should be washed keeping each colour separate for at least the first wash and dry. After that simply wash similar colours together. Do not hang dyed bedding to dry, use a dryer. For best results during the first few washes, please make sure your bedding goes into the dryer right after it is done washing. Don’t let it sit wet. Unbleached bedding should be washed in HOT water for the first wash. After that, follow the washing instructions as detailed above.
