Everything at bed is dyed by hand in small batches. Our hand dyeing process allows you to see the natural texture of the cotton muslin, highlighting the beauty of this comfy, rustic fabric. Nothing is ‘perfect’ and we like that way!
Happy Pride, everyone! It’s been a tough, unpredictable year, and that makes it even more important to celebrate the strength the LGBT+ community finds in our diversity. Have fun, be safe & take care of those around you.
bed is a longtime supporter of the Vancouver Queer Film Festival and we encourage you pick up some tickets online. You can enjoy the best in independent queer cinema along with workshops, artist Q&As, panels and parties while also supporting the other important work they do through programs like Out in Schools!
Having trouble putting together a whole set in one colour? Consider looking at adjacent colours to complete your set instead. For example, using a Neon flat sheet with a Cyan Fitted sheet or putting some Robin pillowcases with a Neon duvet cover. It creates a unified look and might mean you get your sheets sooner!
Our bedding is dyed by hand at our workshop in Burnaby, BC. We use a non-toxic, environmentally inert dye that doesn’t require any harsh acids to bind to the cotton. Everything is dyed in small batches and just like the leaves on a tree no two batches will be exactly the same. Sometimes the dyelots will differ, sometimes the grain of the fabric may create a crease that dyes a bit darker, sometimes you may even see a fleck of another colour–while our small team works hard to dye everything as consistently as possible, we embrace all of these as the imperfect beauty of a handmade product!
If you’d like to read more about colour and dyelots, we have more details at our about page, colour & dye lots.
Hi, everyone! We have some good news for you today. First of all, we’ve finally received some new fabric so, we are working hard on restocking some of our most popular colours in Queen, Double and Single sizes. If you’ve been waiting for something, now would be a good time to check in! If we don’t have it now, it could be coming in the next couple weeks. We also used this low-stock time to take care of some long overdue maintenance on our website, which is now complete and updated with our recent restocks! Thank you so much for your patience and support during these complicated times. We hope we can help you add some much needed comfort to your home.
Another way to put together a unique combination for your bedroom is to look to nature. Here, we had fresh blueberries in mind when created this look with luxe layers of blue, topped off with a light, springy green.
This bed features a Sprout duvet cover and 25″ squares, paired with a fitted sheet, pillow cases and an 18″ square in Frost, with one pair of pillowcases in Royal for some depth and finally a touch of Blueberry in the final 18″ square.
We’re a few days into our spring of sunshine and social distancing. Bring some of that sunshine inside with a pop of yellow, maybe try a cushion cover or a pair of pillowcases to start! ☀️ Here we have the bright yellow Sunshine, with a midtone Custard, and the palest yellow Butter, all topped off with a touch of the yellow marble, Banana.
Create a serene, rainy day in your bedroom by layering the deep blue Indigo with the brighter blue of Azure, adding in a wisp of clouds using the grey-blue marble of Mercury.
