Heirloom-quality linens—the kind that are painstakingly embroidered by hand, on the finest percale—are a rarity in our modern-day world. All the more reason to savor the elegance of Francesca’s beautiful toneon-tone embroidery: a floral scrollwork pattern, bordered by a delicate Italian lace inset, frames each piece of this ensemble.
