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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
