The Paddington Lane difference
It was 2am one night, pregnant with my first born, and I was lost in my fourth hour of scrolling Instagram for #nurseryinspo. I kept coming back to a few businesses who made gorgeous bed linen for littlies and the sheets really did make the rooms pop. They were beautiful.
As a soon to be mum, I had a number of non-negotiables that I was not willing to compromise on. Things like:
Chemical-free certified fabric
I soon realised I was searching for magical unicorn sheets that didn’t exist. I wanted those non-negotiables while still featuring a beautifully crisp, digital print at an affordable price.
And so began the journey of Paddington Lane.
We believe you should never have to sacrifice quality or functionality to achieve your perfect look. Now you can have it all.
It's all in the fabric!
Our sheets are ethically made using high-quality, medium staple length cotton. Longer staple, twill weave cotton means our sheets will only get softer with age, fray less, wrinkle less, pill less and even fade less than the normal short staple plain weave cotton used in most bedding.
The twill effect!
The diagonal construction of the twill weave means our sheets are softer and more durable than normal plain weave cotton. An ancient weaving technique, twill is known for its strength, breathability, luxurious drape and its ability to hide soiling and stains. Being softer and more pliable means fewer wrinkles which are easier to remove when they do appear.
Reversible Flat Sheets
Dress your bed two ways with our Reversible Flat Sheets. Break up your patterned fitted sheet using the crisp white solid colour trim panel that perfectly complements the pattern. Or, turn your sheet around to use the traditional long hem of a flat sheet.
Reversible Duvet Covers
Our Reversible Duvet Covers feature the stunning digitally printed patterns on the top side, with a hand-picked, custom-printed solid colour that perfectly complements the pattern on the underside. You can choose to dress your bed a number of different ways, for different moods and seasons.
Social & Environmental ResponsibilityEthically made
Our sheets are ethically sourced and hand-made, giving our products the finesse and love they deserve. We are so proud of the quality of finishes our team delivers that we even warranty our sheets!
