Alessandra Linens, Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara , California
Tel: 805 448 9057's insider take:

Locals who've grown bored with their Frette are over the moon about Alessandra Polottos, who creates customized fine linens with embroidery copied from almost anything, from a photo to a painted teacup. From a textile family in Milan, Alessandra has an eye for quality fabrics and finishing. Made from Italian linen or Egyptian cotton, the place mats, napkins, tablecloths, and bed linens are hand-embroidered by several women in Tuscany whose stitching skills have been passed down for generations. A custom-designed place mat can take several weeks for the embroidery, while a tablecloth might require as long as two months—prices range from $300 for a single place mat to $1,200 for a queen-size set of linen sheets.
