Brooklinen’s Labor Day Sale Is On — Here’s What We’re Shopping Now

Brooklinen’s Labor Day Sale Is On — Here’s What We’re Shopping Now

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission.

Brooklinen — aka America’s sweetheart of direct-to-consumer bedding — just kicked off its annual Labor Day Weekend sale! While you may already be familiar with Brooklinen’s editor-favorite sheet sets that made our Best List, the brand also makes duvets, pillows, mattress toppers, quilts, towels, and other bedding and bath essentials. So whatever you need to upgrade your setup for a cozy fall and winter, they’ve got it, and now’s the time to grab it. Because with nearly everything on sale for 15 percent off, Brooklinen isn’t playing around this year.

To get you started, we rounded up some of the brand’s best-sellers and editor favorites to keep in mind for when you’re shopping for college bedding, renewing your old sets, treating yourself, or planning early for holiday gifting.

Luxe Sateen Sheet Bundle, Queen

The bestselling Luxe Sateen Sheet Bundle is where Brooklinen’s popularity all began. The 480-thread count, 100 percent long-staple cotton sateen is robust but still cooling and incredibly soft to the touch. Of course, the sheets are are OEKO-TEX certified, so you can rest well knowing you’re wrapped in something that is a great as it feels, through and through. The included pillowcases have that handy envelope closure, so they stay on tight, and the fitted sheet even has labels on its long and short sides to take the guesswork out of making the bed.

Super-Plush Bath Towel Bundle

Brooklinen’s Super-Plush Bath Towels blew us away — and made our Best List! As some of the plushest, softest towels we’ve ever used, these essentials are worth trying and buying (in bulk). They’ll be with you for years, come in a variety of beautiful colors, and are ideal for anyone looking for daily spa experiences at home.

Down Pillow, Mid-Plush, Standard

Available in three different feels — plush, mid-plush, and firm — as well as King and Queen sizes, these Brooklinen down pillows are winners when it comes to luxury bedding upgrades. The down inside each pillow is ethically sourced from Hutterite Farms in Canada, treated with antimicrobials, and swaddled in a 100 percent cotton sateen casing.

Looking for a year-round loungewear staple? Made from 100 percent linen and pre-washed for immediate softness, this Brooklinen robe is a true crowdpleaser. Shoppers call it “timeless,” “comfy,” and “lightweight,” but we’ll add chic to that list since it’s perfect for selfies as well.

Perfect for gifting others as well as yourself, this set contains four mini soy candles in a range of morning and evening moods. They’re slow burning, so you can enjoy the scents longer — 50 to 60 hours to be specific. They’re also handmade and poured in Brooklinen’s hometown: Brooklyn.

This quilt is as perfect to slip between your top bedsheet and comforter for a middle layer in the winter as it is as a solo cover during the warmer months. Made from 100 percent long-staple cotton, it’s as lightweight and breathable as its name suggests. Each one is crafted by artisans in India and takes six days to make — an effort that’s evident in every stitch.

Brooklinen’s bestselling silk eye mask and pillowcase meet in this set of beauty rest essentials. Their mulberry silk fabric stays true to centuries-old traditions, but with the added bonus of being machine washable. Cool to the touch and soft on the hair and skin, this portable bundle will keep you looking and feeling tip-top after every night of deep sleep.

An ultra-soft lounge pant crafted with the expertise of a bedding label? Finally! Designed to be worn and washed (on cold) for years without warping, pilling, shrinking, stretching, or sagging, Brooklinen’s jogger is a French Terry cotton and modal dream. It’s meant to be the only lounge pant you could need — and it delivers.

We’re big fans of Brooklinen’s Turkish-inspired Hammam bath towel, which received an honorable mention in the quick-dry category of our Best List. It’s available in three uplifting colorways, and at a large 40″ x 70″, it’s ideal for post-shower lounging. At 400 GSM, it’s extremely lightweight (the average plush bath towel is around 600-700 GSM) but still impressively absorbent.

Classic Duvet Cover, Queen

A great duvet cover is a hard worker. It should be soft enough to sleep in comfortably — especially if you’re one to opt out of a top sheet — and stylish enough to compliment your decor. It has to be able to withstand active kids, sleeping dogs, scratchy cats, the (more than) occasional spill, and whatever else life hands bed covers. Brooklinen’s Classic Duvet Cover is lightweight, easily washable, and seamless when paired with the rest of the brand’s bedding, so you can treat it the same way you would your sheets. Easy as that!

I tend to have a strict policy on how I use towels. For one, I usually replace them often (never using a towel beyond two to three days in a row), and I always have a separate towel on hand to dry my face. In the past, I’ve also made it a point to have a clear line of separation between my bathroom towels and my beach towels — that was, until I tried Brooklinen’s new Hamman Towel. What I thought was strictly a beach towel turned out to be incredibly soft and absorbent, and it just may find its rightful place in my bathroom.

After I received my package, it didn’t take long to sell me on the fact that these towels, made of 85 percent Turkish cotton, were the real deal. The gorgeous striped design is easy on the eyes (I opted for the Cool Mint colorway) and the material is immediately soft to the touch, even before it goes in the wash. And because I immediately throw new towels and bedding into the washing machine before using them, I was pleased to see them get even softer afterwards. So far, so good!

I discovered the real magic of these super-absorbent towels during a recent beach trip with my sister and five-year-old nephew. It was an impromptu stop during a 90-degree day, and my sister mistakenly forgot to bring towels of her own. As a result, all three of us ended up having to share the Brooklinen Hammam Towel I brought. Surprisingly, it kept us all dry after our swim and didn’t become sopping wet like we expected. In fact, it dried rather quickly by the time we packed up our beach bag. To say I was stunned would be an understatement. It was then that I knew this towel was the real deal. As if the absorbency wasn’t enough of a selling point, I also love that this towel measures 40″ x 70″, which is the perfect size if you’re using this to lay out on (which we did after drying off).

After our beach day, I was curious to see how the Brooklinen towel would fare as a bath towel. Similar to its performance at the beach, it ended up being one of the fastest drying towels I’ve ever used. I love the ample size of the fabric, which gives me more surface area to dry my hair and body. The terry cloth side of the towel is so heavenly soft and is just the thing you want to be wrapped up in after a hot shower. So far, I’ve washed this towel three times and I’ve noticed no pilling or unraveling of the terry cloth. When it’s all dry, this towel folds flat and fits easily into the linen closet without much bulkiness. Unlike other towels I’ve tested and shared with my family, this is one that I want to keep all to myself.

Though the Brooklinen Hammam Towel is a bit on the pricier side, I won’t hesitate to buy it again in different colors. Suffice it to say, I think I’ve found my favorite summer splurge.

Sometimes, you have to actually experience better quality bedding to know you’d been doing it all wrong. I learned that firsthand after investing in Brooklinen’s Classic Cotton Percale Sheets — one of the brand’s most popular sheet sets and the best overall percale set on our Best List. Made from long-staple cotton with a percale weave, these sheets were made to mimic that hotel-style sleep experience you typically only get when vacationing somewhere fancy. Not only do these sheets totally live up to the hype, but they’ve single-handedly raised the bar for how I shop for bedding… and I’ll never go back.

Back in my broke college student days, I never really put much thought into the type of sheets I’d buy. Any time I needed to replace my worn out sheets, I’d browse the aisles of my favorite discount store looking for sheets that suited my color preference and my wallet. A complete queen-sized set under $40? Deal! It was in my shopping cart in no time. Not only was I super cheap when it came to sheets, but I also didn’t give much thought to the quality of the material. If the label said they were cooling sheets, I believed it without researching which fabric the sheets were made of. Big mistake. Huge.

After reading tons of positive reviews on Brooklinen’s Classic Core Sheet Set, I became convinced it was finally time to be an adult about my bedding selection and invest a little more money on sheets that would not only last, but get softer and cozier over time. I chose the set in the Window Pane pattern. I hadn’t always been a white sheet enthusiast, but the simplistic look of this design actually made my bed look cozier. “Off to a great start already,” I thought.

As for the feel of the sheets, I noticed an immediate transformation after washing them for the first time. They were initially a little stiff right out of the package — which is not always a cause for concern when it comes to percale — but felt airy, soft, and crisp when I removed them from the dryer. Putting them on the bed was a breeze, thanks to the convenient “long side” and “short side” labels on the fitted sheet. Seriously, where had these sheets been all my life?

Though I have since bought and tested many well-made cotton sheets from several other brands, I have no qualms about stamping the Brooklinen classic percale sheets as my all-time favorite. With a 270 thread count, these sheets are light and completely breathable, making them ideal for hot summer nights. And while the sheets were already soft to the touch, they’ve only gotten better with each wash, developing a sort of lived-in quality that makes you want to lounge in them all day. The set truly makes getting out of bed a challenge, which speaks to how darn comfortable they are. I no longer have to wait until vacation to get that luxurious, restful sleep I thought only existed with hotel bedding.

And here’s some very good news: Brooklinen’s entire site, including these beloved cotton percale sheets, is currently on sale for 15 percent off until July 7 at 11:59p.m. Add the set to your cart, enter code SUMMER15, and watch the prices fall. Take it from a gal whose sleep has totally been changed: This is the perfect time to upgrade your bedding and never look back.
