If you want your bedspread to drop to the floor we suggest you measure your bed with all its normal layers on. To measure, start at the floor on one side, measure up the side of the bed, across the top and down the other side to the floor (all in one measurement) then choose the size closest to that listed on the website. As our items are hand-crafted there may be some variation to sizes of +/- 5%.
Our comforters are usually folded at the end of the bed as a decorative statement piece. You can pull the comforter up for extra warmth on chilly winter nights and is ideal for daytime naps. They can also be used as a throw on sofas or in living areas.
Cushions - Our bed and bolster cushions (50cm x 30cm, 60cm x 30cm, 90 x 35cm, 45cm x 45cm round) are filled with poly fill. Our occasional cushions (60cm x 40cm, 50cm x 50cm and 60cm x 60cm) are filled with feather inners.
Bedspreads - We use cotton wadding in our quilted bedspreads.
Comforters - Poly fill
Silk bedding - 100% grade A pure floss mulberry silk. Mulberry silk is the highest quality silk you can purchase.
Silk pillows - 50% grade A pure mulberry silk mixed with 50% polyester. Polyester is added to give loft and cushioning and helps with retaining shape.
The best way to keep your sheets white is to soak them in cold water before washing (overnight if possible). This will help loosen up dirt particles making it easier to wash away. DO NOT BLEACH- this will damage the fibres. In addition the sun is a great whitening agent.
It is personal choice and preference as to whether you wash your sheets before using them. However we do not recommend washing our Italian white and ivory sheets as they are manufactured with a beautifully scented white musk perfume.
We recommend having at least two sets of sheets. It is important to alternate sheets to let the fibres rest and breathe between washes. The sheets will also last longer as the wear is shared out between each set.
How long your sheets last depends on a number of different aspects. How often you use the sheet set, how many sets you have, how many people occupying the bed, how you wash and care for them, how often you wash your sheets, your personal hygiene and what products you put on your body.
Depending on whether we have that item in stock and in the size you require you may be able to buy products from previous collections. To inquire about an item from a previous collection, please look on our website, check with your nearest stockist or phone us on 0800 242 567.
