Meet the Makers

Sometimes, we refrain from indulging in our daytime snoozes to travel the world seeking out the very best mills and makers.

That’s the secret to our ridiculously comfortable wind-down essentials. Every squishy, impossibly soft and cloud-like detail is thanks to our mills and makers, which (and we’re not exaggerating) are the best in the world. They are fellow family-run businesses who have been working with textiles for over 300 years combined.

Guimarães, Portugal

Our buttery-soft bedding comes from Guimarães, Northern Portugal.

Think pastéis de natas, vinho verde and world-class cotton. It’s a place known for its textile history – but what makes this mill stand out is how they mix the knowledge passed down through years of experience with modern technology and innovation.

Our makers are a fourth-generation family-run mill who’ve been producing textiles for just under a century – and have been with us since the beginning.

Welcome to Guimarães.

A medieval town in Northern Portugal, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We came to Portugal to find the world's best bedding makers (and we stayed for the pastéis de natas and the vinho verde, but that’s another story).

Relaxed has the laid back look of linen, with the softness and breathability of cotton. The ultimate comfort bedding; ultra soft, comfortable and airy.

Best of all? Relaxed looks and feels better when effortlessly crumpled. Less time ironing, more time sleeping.

A family business.

Nestled in the beautiful countryside is the fourth-generation family owned textile mill we partner with. The pinnacle of luxury textile manufacturing, they've been making world-class bedding for over 70 years.

Their expertise and craftsmanship is unparalleled, but even more importantly everyone is paid well and treated like family (which they often are).

Obsessed with the details.

Luxe is super-smooth and buttery soft. It feels silky against the skin, and has a subtle sheen that gently mellows with washing.

Luxe has a slightly heavier drape, making it warmer to the touch and naturally wrinkle resistant.

We work hand-in-hand with the makers in our mill to create unique, premium quality bedding essentials that can't be found anywhere else.

From individually counted and combed threads, through to hand-finishing, it's the care at every stage that makes our products special.

Denizli, Turkey

3,719 kilometres away and we’re in Turkey where the extra-long staple Turkish cotton that our makers whip up into soft-as-a-hug bespoke towels and robes is the stuff dreams are made of.

Why Turkish cotton? The long fibres mean strong and smoother threads. We’re talking seriously durable, super soft and ridiculously comfy essentials for all your bath-to-bed rituals.

We have tested a lot of towels (it was a hard job having bubble baths every night) and we found that their quality is unparalleled, so there was no question about who we wanted to partner with for our Bath Collection.

Fife, Scotland

If you trace the origins of our Duvet & Pillow Collection (you know, the ones that make you feel like you’re actually sleeping on a cloud), you’ll find yourself in Scotland.

This mill is another family affair, and their makers are experts in all things bedding, from fill-power to togs. You might have even slept on their goods in some luxury boutique hotels already (but there’s nothing like coming home to your own).

We love heading up to their mill – we learn something new every time. Plus there’s always somewhere cosy to wind down.

Scottish Borders

Our journey to make our deliciously soft cashmere socks took us closer to home once again, and we found ourselves back in Scotland.

Here, among the wild, highland landscape, we found a family-run factory filled with sumptuously soft cashmere threads, which are then woven by hand to create the ultimate sleep socks.

With a rich Scottish heritage spanning 225 years, the exquisite craftsmanship is thanks to time-honoured techniques which have been passed down through generations. When it comes to cashmere, no one does it better.
