As the Queen celebrates her jubilee and commitment not just to the people of Britain but also to her family. The royals themselves are in every sense of the word, a family business too, which leads us to think about where it all began, where the first seeds were sown, and The Fine Bedding Company started to come to life. Now, many years later we are a proud fourth-generation British business with a family of innovators who have spent more than a 100 years invested in better bedding.
Many years ago in 1912, The Fine Bedding Company started, formally known as Harrison & Jones Ltd, by supplying the royal ships with mattresses. Our innovation made sure we delivered durable and most importantly comfortable mattresses to these cruise liners.
Here is a small timeline of where we began and how our beginning established the heritage we now have today:
- 1912 The first iteration of our brand, Harrison & Jones Ltd, was established in Liverpool by William Harrison, originally supplying beds and bedding to transatlantic liners sailing between Liverpool and the US.
- 1952 William Harrison introduces then Princess Elizabeth, to Eiderdowns.
1974 Trendsetter was established by Paul Black focusing on bedding.
1999 The Fine Bedding Company launches with the aim of uncovering/communicating superior levels of comfort for the modern consumer.
We’re a business of many different folds, that spans over many years, weaving and changing with innovation being the driving force and this is our story of how premium sleep came to be.
