How deep is your mattress?

We know it can be struggle to put on an ill-fitting sheet, so here at bed we make our fitted sheets in three different depths to cover a wide variety of mattresses. Our standard sheet fits a mattress 11″ or less, the Extra Deep fits from 12″-15″ deep and the largest depth, the Extra EXTRA deep fits from 16″-18″ deep.

Measure your mattress from top to bottom before shopping and we’ll set you up with the right depth for you!

Featuring: Rose Garden

Today we’re featuring our new print Rose Garden on the front bed. We’ve paired it with three of our hand-dyed basics: Royal, Pear and Unbleached. If you’d like to see other basics that could work with Rose Garden, check out here!

BC Buy Local Week

November 28 to December 4 is BC Buy Local week. We’ve been making our bedding ourselves since 1999, starting out in the back of our old store on West 4th in Vancouver and now in our workshop in Burnaby. Head over to bcbuylocal.com for more information.

60% off mistints this weekend!

From Friday November 25th to Sunday November 27th we will be having a 60% off sale on our mistint sheets and duvet covers!

Since we dye all of our sheets by hand, inevitably there are some errors. So, these sheets all have some kind of colour flaw on them, but otherwise there’s nothing wrong with them! Don’t mind a couple specks or spots on your sheets? Come check us out this weekend! The sale is ONLY applicable in person; mistints are not available online.

Another mountain of leftover cotton leaving our workshop to get repurposed by Our Social Fabric. Check out their next sale on Nov 20th! #oursocialfabric #osf #reuse #repurposed #bedvancouver #theheartofkits

Three new colours!

We’re officially introducing three new colours to our line up! Rosebud, Flamingo and their coordinating marble, Reef. They’re intense, sophisticated pinks with a hint of warmth. The marble has flares and speckles of fuschia and orange, creating a fresh, summery contrast to the paler pink background.

Add a hint of summer to your home to brighten these rainy days. All three colours are available in-store or online.

Heading to bed

All full day’s work, all packed up and ready to head to the store. Will any of these end up on your bed?

img-1468712674913

No packaging = less waste

Our sheets have no packaging and we pack them up in reuseable bins to bring them to bed so this cuts out a lot of waste.

img-1468712575832

We have a good look at things before taking them to bed

Before they go to the store we give them a full once over. Hand-dyeing doesn’t always go according to plan so sometimes they end up ‘on sale’ as mistints, a great way to pick up a bargain in bed!

img-1468699514314

Fresh sheets!

Fresh from the dryer. Just like all our sheets they’re preshrunk and will get softer and better with each wash and dry.

img-1468688318124

A quick wash after the dye

Everything gets another wash after it’s dyed to deal with any excess dye that hasn’t bound to the cotton.

img-1468694076260

Dyed in small batches, by hand

All of the sheets are dyed by hand in small batches, just about the size of a set of bedding, which is why there can be slight variation from batch to batch.

img-1468693833891

Can you figure out the secret?

Here’s one secret recipe ready to go… (you didn’t think we’d really give it away did you?)

img-1468688056743

The dye is the key

The reason why our sheets look so good isn’t just the high quality, non-toxic dyes we use, it’s our secret recipes to make the 70+ colours we offer!

img-1468688504010

It all starts out the same.

We sew everything up in unbleached cotton and then dye it only when we need to, which saves water. This is why you sometimes have to wait a bit for your sheets.

Have a peek into how we do it

IMG_20160716_093025

It’s going to be a busy Saturday of dyeing sheets. Follow along for a glimpse into how we do it!

Life on Either Side of the Rainbow

life-on-either-side-of-the-rainbow

We hand-dye all of our sheets so we’ve gotten used to seeing variance between dyelots. Can you imagine what it would be like to see differences that no one else could see? Or alternately, to not see differences that are apparent to everyone else? This link is to a short video about two women who inhabit opposite ends of this spectrum. It will give you something to think about next time your are in our (or any!) store and are trying to choose colours!

Why We Can't Remember Colours Accurately

Have you ever been sure you knew exactly what colour you were looking for only to be unable to select it once confronted with several to choose between? It turns out you aren’t alone and that this problem is one that most of us face.

This is why we offer swatches to carry the real thing with you so you can look at it directly and not need to rely on memory.

Read all about it here: Why We Can’t Remember Colours Accurately
