John Lewis Exquisite Genuisa Cotton Bedding, White

Product information

Genuisa ™ is the highest quality cotton in our bedding range and is made by selecting the finest cottons, including Suvine, which are blended together.

Suvine has an extended growing time, which results in long cotton fibres making extra fine, silky smooth yarn of exceptional strength and quality. These yarns are twisted together before weaving, creating our lavishly luxurious 1000 thread count satin. The fibre is innately lustrous and similar to the feel of silk. Since the lustre is natural and inherent in the cotton fibres, it gets silkier and softer wash after wash.

This bed linen will add texture and tone to your bedroom with its delightful detail of satin stitch.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality cotton bedding product I have purchased both the top of the range Genuisa cotton duvet super king 1000 count and the John Lewis super king duvet cover 400 thread again cotton at the same time. The Genuisa is a better cover but its much more expensive and the 400 count cover is also very good. The Genuisa has a very nice silky feel but the 400 thread count is also very comfortable. The Genuisa should last longer and remain soft for longer due to the higher thread count. Ironing is an issue not to be overlooked since the super king is too large for the home ironing board so best to use a table or as in my case take it to the local ironing service. Yes they are not cheap but they are very good quality.I would recommend both the above duvet covers 14 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lovely when new - frayed within 6 months I bought these as a luxury treat around two years ago. At first they felt divine and worth the money but within months they started to fall apart. One of the pillowcases now has a hole in it, and the edge of the top sheet has completely frayed. Very disappointed indeed. My old polycotton sheets which were a fraction of the price lasted for years. 22 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exquisite luxury bedding I love the Genuisa bedding. Yes, it is expensive but if you are willing to pay the price I think it is worth it. It feels soft next to the skin. I only have a fitted sheet and pillowcase up to now but I am planning to buy a duvet cover too. 29 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So luxurious The softest, most luxurious bedding. Glad I took the plunge! 31 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Five-star hotel quality The ultimate in luxury bedding. Our 1,000 thread count makes Genuisa incredibly soft and silky, giving you hotel luxury in your one home. Standard and Oxford pillowcases, flat and fitted sheets as well as duvet covers are all available in this 100% cotton product. Treat yourself and indulge in this gorgeous range! 28 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not perfect This bed linen is very comfortable, but it should be for the price! I am very disappointed that after less than a year, the duvet cover has become bobbled and rough looking. This hasn't happened to the pillowcases so perhaps I got a 'bad batch'? 01 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bedding I am a waitrose partner and bought some bedding for my daughter for collection in London were she lives, I got the email the next day to say the goods had arrived in store, my daughter went to pick it up at Waitrose Gloucester Road, London, the staff were very helpful and friendly. My daughter is delighted with her new bedding, thank you for the great service and the easy to order process. Lynne Mclane 02 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Height of comfort Deliciously luxurious, wouldn't have been able to afford if not in sale, bought pillow cases and duvet cover and it's like sleeping in silk. 12 February 2014
