Matarranz 1911: a century of legacy in top quality bedding.

Matarranz since 1911. What does that legacy really mean?

The story begins in 1911, when Ramiro Matarranz de Maetzu founded the company and opened its business on Atocha Street, next to the Plaza Mayor in Madrid. In 1919 he expanded the business to Gerona Street with fabrics, suits, scarves and textiles in general, which filled the shelves of that memorable establishment. Since then, we have dedicated ourselves to manufacturing high-quality products, with special attention to detail and design, which has become our hallmark.

The legacy of Matarranz , since its founding more than a century ago, it is impressive. The brand has managed to remain relevant and respected in the bedding and home linen industry, and has become a symbol of quality and elegance in Spain and around the world. Matarranz has built a reputation for its use of high-quality fabrics and the attention we pay to every detail in the manufacturing of our products. In addition, the brand has innovated in the design and presentation of its products, creating an image that is associated with sophistication and elegance. Another important aspect of Matarranz's legacy is its commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.

In short, Matarranz 's legacy is its commitment to quality, attention to detail and innovation, which has allowed us to remain relevant and respected for more than a century. We have been able to adapt to market changes and the needs of our clients, without giving up our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. This has allowed the brand to be a benchmark in the bedding and home linen industry, and we hope to continue this in the future.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to take care of their sheets so they last longer?

Each sheet set comes with specific care instructions. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure that your sheets stay in good condition. In general, we recommend washing the sheets with cold water or a very gentle temperature and drying them, also, at a low temperature.

Harsh detergents can damage the fibers of your sheets and cause them to wear out more quickly. Instead, we recommend using mild, natural detergents, preferably with mild natural fragrances.

It is important to wash your sheets regularly to keep them clean and fresh. It is not necessary to wash them too often; once a week is usually enough.

Using optical brighteners such as bleach can seriously damage the fibers of your sheets and cause them to wear out much faster. Instead, use natural products. We always recommend Oxygen Booster Nº04 from Home Healthy Home , which does not contain optical brighteners.

What are the different types of sheet fabrics that can be found in Matarranz? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each type?

At Matarranz we offer a wide variety of sheet fabrics, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most common types of fabrics we offer are the following:

Cotton: it is one of the most popular fabrics for making sheets. It is soft, breathable and easy to care for. Plus, cotton sheets get softer with each wash.

Linen: It is a durable and resistant fabric that softens over time. It is breathable and has a fresh, airy texture that is ideal for the summer months . However, linen sheets can feel drier and harder to the touch, and they also require a little more work when ironing them.

Silk: It is a luxurious and soft to the touch fabric, ideal for people with sensitive skin. It is breathable and helps regulate body temperature while you sleep. However, silk sheets can be more expensive and require more special care.

As you see, each of these fabrics has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to consider your personal needs and preferences when choosing your sheets. At Matarranz , we are proud to offer a wide variety of options so you can find the one that best suits you.

What measures should be taken to prevent sheets from shrinking or becoming damaged when washed?

It is important to take certain precautionary measures. Here I describe some tips for washing your sheets:

  1. Check Care Labels: Before washing your sheets, be sure to read the care labels for recommended washing instructions. Some qualities of luxury sheets may require special care, such as washing on cold or drying with greater control over temperature.
  2. Separate by color and fabric type : To prevent colors from fading, separate light-colored sheets from dark-colored sheets before washing them. You can also wash new sheets separately to prevent them from releasing dyes that could stain other clothes. It is important not to mix towels and clothing with sheets, even if they have the same color.
  3. Use a mild detergent: Harsh detergents can wear down the fibers and cause them to shrink more quickly. Use a mild, natural detergent, preferably unscented or mildly scented. We recommend any of the Home Healthy Home laundry soaps.
  4. Wash with cold water: Hot water can shrink the fibers in your sheets. Furthermore, just because it is hotter, it does not wash better, so it is advisable to wash the sheets with cold water or a very gentle temperature.
  5. Don't use fabric softener: Fabric softeners can leave residue on sheets. Home Healthy Home soaps, due to their composition based on olive oil soap, do not require subsequent use of fabric softener.
  6. Dry sheets on low heat: Dry sheets in the dryer on low heat to prevent shrinkage or damage. You can also hang the sheets outdoors or on a clothesline instead of using the dryer. We recommend using pure Spanish merino wool dryer balls , such as those from Home Healthy Home . They reduce wrinkles, drying time and make ironing easier.

By following these tips, you can prevent your sheets from shrinking or becoming damaged when you wash them, and prolong their life so you can enjoy their softness and comfort for longer.

Do you recommend any specific type of detergent for washing sheets? Because?

As a sheet expert, I cannot recommend a specific detergent for washing sheets, as each person has different preferences and needs when it comes to cleaning and caring for their clothes.

However, what I can tell you is that you should choose mild and natural detergents, instead of those that contain aggressive chemicals that can damage the fibers, affect the color and reduce their useful life.

Additionally, it is important to follow the manufacturer's recommended care instructions, as they may vary depending on the type of fabric and finish of the sheets.

We discovered laundry soaps from  Home Healthy Home and we were very surprised by its results but, as I mentioned before, each person has their own preferences.

How should sheets be washed to maintain their original softness and texture?

To maintain the original softness and texture of your sheets, it is important to follow certain steps when washing them. Here I share some tips:

  1. Wash sheets separately from other clothing items to prevent them from tangling and rubbing against other fabrics, which can cause loss of softness and texture.
  2. Use a mild, natural detergent to prevent the sheets from fraying and losing their softness. Avoid detergents with harsh chemicals, which can damage the fibers and affect the texture of the sheets.
  3. Wash sheets in cold or very gentle water to prevent fiber damage and shrinkage. Hot water can be too abrasive for some luxury sheets and cause them to lose their softness and texture. It is also important to be clear that using very hot water does not wash more.
  4. Use a gentle wash cycle to prevent sheets from becoming damaged or rubbing against other fabrics during the washing process.
  5. Dry the sheets in the dryer on low heat or hang them outside to prevent them from drying out too much and losing their softness and texture. Do not use a high temperature, as this can damage the fibers and reduce the life of the sheets.

By following these tips, you can maintain the original softness and texture of your luxury sheets for longer and enjoy their comfort and quality for longer.

Is there a difference in the way cotton sheets should be washed compared to silk or linen sheets?

Yes, there are some differences in the way cotton sheets should be washed compared to silk or linen sheets.

Cotton sheets are durable and easy to care for, and can generally be washed in the washing machine with warm or cold water. A good trick is to reduce the spin speed and put them in a mesh bag, this will reduce the wrinkles they generate. when washing them, making them easier to iron later . We recommend using a mild detergent and avoiding the use of fabric softeners as they can leave residue on the sheets. After washing they can be dried in the dryer at low temperature or outdoors.

Silk sheets are soft and  luxurious looking, but they are also delicate and require special care. It is recommended to wash them by hand or on a very gentle cycle in the washing machine with cold water and a mild detergent designed for silk. They should not be dried in the dryer, as the heat can damage the silk fibers. Instead, they should be hung to dry outdoors.

Linen sheets have a durable and resistant finish. It is recommended to wash them in warm or cold water with a mild detergent designed for delicate fabrics, avoiding fabric softeners. As with cotton sheets, I recommend washing them in a mesh bag to reduce wrinkles during washing. After washing, they can be dried in the dryer at very low temperature or outdoors.

In short, each type of sheet has specific care needs to maintain its quality and long-term durability. It is important to follow the manufacturer's recommended care instructions and use gentle, natural products.

Is it better to wash sheets by hand or in a washing machine? Because?

In general, washing sheets in a washing machine is more convenient and effective than washing them by hand. Washing machines are designed to handle large loads of laundry and can wash and rinse sheets more efficiently than hand washing. Additionally, most washing machines have cycle and temperature adjustment options that allow you to customize the wash according to the specific fabric of your sheets.

Hand washing can be a good option for sheets made of delicate fabrics such as silk or linen, but it requires a lot of time and effort, and it can be difficult to get a deep, even clean across the entire sheet.

In short, washing sheets in a washing machine is generally the best option for an effective and efficient clean. However, it is important to follow the care recommendations and use a wash cycle appropriate for the type of fabric of the sheets to avoid damaging the fibers.

How long should a good quality sheet set last if properly cared for?

The life of a good quality sheet set can vary depending on several factors, such as frequency of use, quality of the fabric, and type of care. In general, a good quality set of sheets should last 3 to 5 years, or even longer, if properly cared for.

To ensure your sheets last as long as possible, it is important to follow the manufacturer's care recommendations and wash them regularly using a mild detergent and warm or cold water. Avoid using fabric softeners, as they can damage the fibers and make the sheets less absorbent. It is also advisable to avoid using bleach and wash sheets separately from other laundry items to avoid abrasion and wear of the fibers.

Overall, investing in a good quality sheet set and properly caring for them can provide a long-lasting, comfortable sleeping experience for several years.

Are there any signs that the sheets need to be replaced?

Yes, there are some signs that the sheets need to be replaced. The most common include:

  1. Holes or Tears: If there are holes or tears in your sheets, it's time to replace them. These defects can be caused by wear and tear and excessive use, and can cause sheets to become uncomfortable and ineffective in providing a good night's sleep.
  2. Loss of softness or texture: High-quality sheets are usually soft and comfortable to the touch. If your sheets have lost their original softness or texture, it may be a sign that they need to be replaced. This may be due  to prolonged use, exposure to sun and air, or the use of inappropriate detergents or softeners.
  3. Discoloration or stains: Discoloration or stains on sheets are a sign that they need to be replaced. It can be caused by prolonged use, exposure to sunlight, chemical buildup, or lack of proper cleaning.

In short, if your sheets have holes, have lost their softness or texture, or have discoloration or stains, it's time to replace them. It is also advisable to replace your sheets every 3-5 years, even if they show no obvious signs of wear, to ensure a comfortable and healthy sleeping experience.
