In February 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against AQ Textiles, Creative Textiles Mills Pvt. Ltd., and several retailers for allegedly falsely marketing cotton bed linens – including Prescott Fine Linens Luxury Sateen, Highland Collection Luxury Sateen, and Legacy Home Collection – as having particular thread counts when the thread counts are actually far less than advertised. (Kremmel et al v. AQ Textiles, LLC, Creative Textile Mills Pvt. Ltd., The TJX Companies, Inc. d/b/a TJ Maxx and Home Goods, Ross Stores, Inc., Macy’s Retail Holdings, Inc., and Belk, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-147, S. D. IL.)
