COVID-19 update – Currently, our sales are temporarily restricted to in stock items only. If you order multiple pieces in the same colour, you should expect to see some variation in the shade and tone of the colour across the items. Our items are made by hand, and with such a wide array of products, colours & sizes, we definitely do not have every item in stock at all times.

If you love dappled grey of a cloud sky when the fresh, cool rain begins to fall then Rainy Day is the ideal choice for you. This look takes fresh, watery blues and highlights them with a soft, marbled grey. Whether you want to be soothed, or make a splash, this combo can show even a Vancouverite the beauty of a rainy day.
Our Mercury marble has often been described as looking like a cloudy sky, so we started with that as our base fitted sheet and added a pair of pillowcases to bring a touch more of that cloudy texture to the surface. Then, we topped the bed with the bold blue of Azure in the duvet cover and 25″ squares, before bringing in some deep, pacific blue with Indigo pillowcases and an 18″ square with the final touch of an 18″ in the deep swirling blue of Cobalt.

Our sheets are definitely not your average department store sheets. We use a 100% cotton, clothing fabric called muslin, which is thicker and more textured than the cotton often used to make sheets. People often remark that the noticeable texture feels more similar to old fashioned or even linen sheets. Just like a new pair of jeans they can take a bit of breaking in, but get softer and lovelier with each wash, while retaining their more rustic texture.
Although this cotton may feel a bit heavier than other fabrics, it breathes exceptionally well. This is because big threads are used in a looser weave. The cotton doesn’t retain excess heat or cold like tightly woven fabrics, so it’s quite comfortable all year round.

All dyeing is done by hand in small batches (about a set of queen-sized items, i.e. duvet cover, fitted sheet & 2 pillowcases), so dyelots will vary slightly. If you order several items in the same colour, we will make every effort to dye as many of them together as possible, however it is possible you may receive items from slightly different dye lots. Sometimes you’ll see small specks or smudges of another colour on your sheets and this comes down to the fact that a real human being made them by hand – try as we might these can’t be completely avoided. The typical variation in colour that may occur can be seen by viewing all the images on a colour’s category page. Marble dyes have the most variance in colour within an item, each item has a unique, random pattern that can include large clusters or small flecks of other colours such as fuschia, orange or blue, depending upon how individual dyes disperse. Every computer monitor will display colours somewhat differently, so use our colour images as guidelines – the actual colour may not be exactly as displayed by your computer. For an explanation about why colours sometimes look different online and in person, check out our about colour page. Following our washing instructions will keep colours true for a long time, while the cotton will get softer and softer, a lot like your favourite, old jeans.
All bedding should be washed prior to first use. Always wash in COLD water and tumble dry HOT. Dyed bedding should be washed keeping each colour separate for at least the first wash and dry. After that simply wash similar colours together. Do not hang dyed bedding to dry, use a dryer. For best results during the first few washes, please make sure your bedding goes into the dryer right after it is done washing. Don’t let it sit wet. Unbleached bedding should be washed in HOT water for the first wash. After that, follow the washing instructions as detailed above.
