As a fourth generation British business, our family of innovators have spent more than 100 years invested in better bedding. We have trailblazed technology throughout the eras, from delivering durability for our cruiseliner mattresses in 1912, to creating our Eco factory in 2020.
Over 100 years
And longevity is not only part of our history, but our product philosophy too. Woven in the finest luxury materials, and sustainably manufactured, our bedding is quality, made to last - wash after wash.

The production of all items has an environmental impact and it is vital to us that we grow in a responsible way minimising our impact.
As a family business we want to be proud not only of the products that we create but the way in which they are manufactured, protecting the environment for the future and for our children. Our customers trust in us to do the right thing, knowing we will push boundaries of what is possible. Ultimately we all want to ensure that we all can sleep well at night.

A British business, steeped in heritage
From supplying durable mattresses to the colossal cruise liners of the 1920s, to being the first in the world to design a duvet made entirely out of plastic PET bottles in 2018 - our proudly independent British family business spans decades of change.
Yet despite our ever-changing environment, our family ethos has remained steadfast through our milestones - whether it be the grand-opening of our Eco-Factory in Estonia, in 2000, the launch of our ground-breaking recycled Smartfil® fibre in 2014 or our Green Apple Award for sustainable practices in 2017. Or whether it be our continental quilt, our four seasons duvet, or our built an eco-first in Estonia - pioneering production built on 100% renewable energy.
Today, our ship is steered by Claire Watkin, the great granddaughter of company founder William Harrison. Together with our incredible team of designers, manufacturers, developers, shippers, engineers, we ensure our family’s inherent principles of quality, craftsmanship, and eco-friendly practices are threaded through every stitch we sew.
Fast forward to now and that same factory operates on 100% renewable energy, where 99% of waste is recycled, and helping us bring our 100% recycled duvet, made from 120 plastic bottles, to the mass market.
