The Art of Making: Intro to Bedding

Posted by: Karen Fuller

All of our bedding is produced in Portugal. Rebecca took a sourcing trip to visit prospective mills in the spring of 2017 to see the different vendors and their capabilities. Most notably, our duvets are made in a family owned and operated vertically integrated Oeka-Tex certified factory. Vertically integrated means that the whole process is done in-house (versus outsourcing different components like weaving, printing, cutting or sewing). The only thing this particular factory doesn’t do in-house is spin the yarn. We love that almost the entire process is done in-house as it ensures a high quality every step of the way, and also means the product travels less distance and thus is more environmentally-friendly.

In addition to the factory producing the duvets and pillowcases, there is a mill for the coverlets, and another for the throw blankets. Each one specializes in the manufacturing process used to produce each product category. It’s important to us that we work with the best raw materials like linen and organic cotton. So many people are involved in making a collection come together from our sourcing agent to the factory workers. It’s important that everyone is treated fairly and has good working conditions. You can sleep well knowing our bedding is made responsibly.

When designing this collection of bedding, Rebecca considered how each piece that is layered on the bed- coverlet, duvet cover, pillowcases, throw blanket- would sit together with color and pattern. There is a mix of color, textures and a range of pattern scales that allow you to play with different combinations that all work well together depending on your personal style. Hear more from Rebecca about why she decided to launch bedding here.

Over the next couple weeks, we’ll be sharing deeper dives into how each of the pieces in our bedding collection was made. We hope you’ll follow along and let us know if you have any questions!
