How to order

Our website is here to give you an idea of what we have done and what we can do, but really the options are almost endless. We can also use trims you might have already and can also source ribbons, trims and colours for you according to your requirements.


We are happy to send out ribbon or thread colour samples free of charge so you can see them ‘in the flesh’.

Swatch Service

Along with any ribbon or thread sample requests, you can request a swatch of our cotton sheeting in 400 or 800 cotton sateen  in any of the six colours.

Stylist Service

Our ‘Stylist Service’ means we can create bedlinen using designs you have in mind. If you have a sketch or an image of something you like or are trying to match, just send it over. We will create a unique design which can be beautifully embroidered onto bedlinen in your chosen colour or colours. Prices available on request, contact us for more information.
