Throughout our collections, you’ll find that we’re strong advocates for a sense of tradition, but with a ‘Piglet twist’. Our latest collection: ‘Chapter One: A Spring Fling in Sussex’ is a celebration of heritage style prints and fabrics, but that have been updated to sit beautifully within your home, and available in a considered edit of colour options and prints. Our bed linens are durable, long lasting and only get better with age: perhaps what one looks for in a marriage too…
Linen harbours a long history that dates back to the ancient Egyptians, who are believed to have been the first to cultivate flax plants, from which linen is made. Linen was held in the highest regard, being associated with purity and prosperity, and given the skill and time that goes into the labour of linen, it’s still very much superior to other fabrics and is prized for its natural beauty, durability, and versatility, unwavering throughout its history.
The tradition of gifting a set of linens for someone's wedding has been around for centuries. In many cultures, it is custom to give newlyweds a gift of linens as a symbol of good luck and the hope that their marriage will be long-lasting and fruitful. Historically, linens were considered a luxury item and were often only owned by the wealthy. As such, gifting a set of linens was seen as a generous and thoughtful gesture. Linen bedding is still considered an investment, but given its durability credentials, will long out-live synthetic alternatives.
Wedding season is edging ever nearer and if you’re stuck for gift ideas, then look no further. Practical, long-lasting but equally beautiful and thoughtful, gifting linens for newlyweds will no doubt be very well received. Whether you gift a bed linen bundle, plush bath towels or table linens, we hope to inspire you with our curated edit of wedding gift ideas - aren’t those newlyweds lucky!
1. 100% European Linen Bundles
Gift the ultimate selection of linen with one of our bed linen bundles. Available in over 30 options, covering all bases: from classic plain white linen to bold gingham and check stripe prints, find a gift for your loved ones no matter their interior style. Our bedding bundles include a duvet cover, a pair of pillowcases and a fitted or flat sheet as standard, with the option to add on sheets and pillowcases as extras. We’re huge fans of mix and match too, so you can opt for a bundle with contrasting pillowcases and sheets to slot perfectly into their home.
2. Cotton bedding bundle
Although not quite as traditional as linen, our cotton bedding makes for a beautiful gift. If perhaps your gift-receiver prefers a more matte and smooth finish rather than textured, cotton bedding makes for a great option. Also available to mix and match, our cotton bedding styles are available in florals, ginghams and plain styles.
3. Linen Pyjamas
Available in both men and women’s fits, gingham and plain linen styles, our pjs will no doubt bring cosy slumbers to the newlyweds - you can even add personalised monogramming for an extra special touch. Perhaps you’re part of the bridal party? Get ready for the big day in matching pyjamas for a super special morning, spent in natural comfort.
4. A new set of plush cotton towels
Our colourful towels are made in Portugal from ethically sourced cotton, in partnership with the Better Cotton Initiative. There’s no skimpy towels here, only those that envelop you as you step out of the bath or steaming shower. A practical and useful prezzie, our bathroom textiles are super soft, luxuriously absorbent and available in a range of sizes and colours, each inspired by nature’s rich colour palette.
5. Table linens
Table linens make for a delightful option for those who enjoy entertaining and hosting guests. Our table linen options are perfect for the everyday as well as creating a beautiful tablescape for dinner parties and special occasions too!
May their marriage last as long as our linens!
