One important thing we all have in common

Although we are all individuals, each of us with our own life journey, talents and quirks, we all have one very important thing in common. We all need our sleep. Sleep is critical for our wellbeing – physically, mentally and emotionally and is as vital to us now as it was thousands of years ago.

We’ve found some great quotes about sleep, so thought we’d write a short blog and share them with you.

As handcrafters of beautiful soft filled bedding made with natural fibres, we particularly agree with interior designer, Bobby Berk when he said: “Spend money on your mattress and bedding because these things make a difference on your sleep and, ultimately, your happiness.” Tucking up in bedding that is breathable and temperature regulating, helps to balance your core body temperature and that means you are more likely to have a better quality of sleep each night.
