Glenna Jean has notched over 30 years in the bedding biz by adapting to the times—their current line features bold patterns and bright color palettes.

Most Glenna Jean sets (three pieces: sheet, crib skirt and quilt) start at $205 and go up to $300. Glenna Jean still makes bumpers as add-ons to their sets (we don’t recommend bumpers) and shows most of the styles on their website with the bumpers. Accessories like pillows and wall hangings are numerous for each design. Keep these soft bedding items well away from children.

Most of the sets are made in the US of 100% cotton with the exception of some of the trim. Higher priced sets (over $300) include luxury fabrics like taffeta, velvet and moiré.

Glenna Jean also sells a lower priced line called Sweet Potato, which starts at $155 for a three piece set. Designs for this line have a more mod look. Yes, this departs a bit from Glenna Jean’s traditional designs, but we liked the geometrics and brighter colors—and the prices are certainly more reasonable than other mod bedding brands.

FYI: Glenna Jean is one of the few bedding manufacturers who makes nearly all its bedding in the US. Rating: B+
