The store of SFERRA is not just a history of fine linen making but one of family, determination, and the American dream. Founded in 1891 in Italy when Genaro Sferra first set foot on the cross Atlantic steamer which would carry him to America. It was a family history of craftsmanship that enabled him to sell the exquisite hand-made lace that would become his future. Sferra helped redefine standards for the entire linen industry, making the Sferra name synonymous with luxury. Accolades for this company have come from dignitaries all over the world including Queen Elizabeth and John Paul II. Today the company is renowned for its Egyptian cotton bedding with its suite of SFERRA Giza 45 collections.
