What we sell
I believe that what we wear while we sleep and during our rest times is essential to our wellbeing. In an average lifetime, you'll spend over 26 years tucked up in bed asleep, or trying to be - that's a significant chunk of your existence.
Quality nightwear may seem something of a luxury, but I believe it is an investment in our comfort, our health and our happiness.
We sell a good night's sleep and restful, comfortable days.
In choosing the pieces to stock and sell, I've selected pyjamas, nightgowns, dressing gowns, robes and accessories in styles and fabrics that will offer a range of night and daytime benefits. Every item offers unparalleled reliability, durability and quality, while adding a simple touch of elegance and sophistication to every morning and night.
I believe that clothing should be truly ethical, in the proper sense of the word, and so I ensure that every garment is made with loving care by people properly rewarded for their labour, while ensuring you receive flawless, beautiful outfits that will last for seasons to come.
How it all began
In 2005, I decided to start an online shop - rather a new idea back then - that would allow me to run a business from home alongside the demands of a busy family life with three teenagers.
I had always loved the beautiful nightwear and dressing gowns that my mother had worn but found trying to replace one that she had given me was impossible. Everything seemed to be produced in cheap fabrics and designs, made for younger people in impractical designs.
Where were these lovely things hiding? Surely they must be somewhere?
It was on a trip to Paris that I found a nightwear paradise. Shops with huge nightwear departments selling the kind of beautiful, quality nightwear I had been searching for, but that was almost impossible to find here in the UK.
I quickly fell in love with some wonderful brands and, very keen to make them available to a UK market, my shop began.
And what to call it? That was easy - my wonderful mother had recently died and left me the contents of her beautiful garden, including a stunning pink camellia.
Pink Camellia today
Over ten years later, I'm still searching out the very best in luxury sleepwear from all over Europe.
I showcase designers whose pieces are not available elsewhere on the internet such as Mei-Do and Bluet from Paris and help support a local heritage knitting firm, as well as stocking better-known designer brands that are hard to find outside of the London stores.
By making quality nightwear accessible to you and your loved ones, wherever you are, I hope to bring lasting warmth, comfort and enjoyment to your restful times for many years to come.
Thank you for visiting.
