Our story - behind the best bed sheets ever made
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that you spend roughly a third of your life between the sheets. During that time, your mind and body go through a restorative process that allows you to recharge. You wake up feeling refreshed and alert - or at least, you should.
What many people don’t realise is that what you do when you first wake up, can have just as much of an effect on your mind and body as what happens when you’re asleep. If the first few minutes of your day are full of obstacles and stress, it’s no surprise that the rest of your day might feel the same. That’s why, even though making your bed is scientifically known for benefiting your body and brain, most people don’t want to hassle with it first thing in the morning.
Holding onto bed-making habits
As a kid, I was always pestered to make my bed. I actually liked the lived-in feel of a messy bed, it certainly matched the rest of my room. But my mum persisted, like most mums do. And looking back now, maybe (read: definitely) she was right.
As I got older and the complexity of life started surrounding me (marriage, work, kids, mortgage, and the rest), I began to grow a new appreciation for organisation, balance, and peace. I started to like having things neat and tidy because it gave me a sense of calmness and focus in an otherwise disorderly world. Most importantly, I started letting go of the grudge I held against bed making.
Something else I learned in adulthood: what you do to start your day will impact the rest of your day. In fact, doing something as simple as making your bed in the morning has been shown to make you happier! That sense of accomplishment can carry you throughout the rest of the day.
As it turns out, the best time to start getting things done and getting organised, is the morning. Specifically, it’s when you first get out of bed, and your feet hit the floor. Then, it’s time to seize the day.
Making the bed was once a chore that I loathed and considered pointless, but I’m glad I kept hearing my mum pestering me in my adult brain to keep making my bed. It really does make a difference - not just in the course of my day but also my sleep quality at night.
Introducing the world's first tailored sheets
Armed with a grudge, a product design degree, and an appreciation for simplicity, I decided to perfect the art of bed making. I didn’t just want to make my bed but also shorten the time it takes and take the headache out of getting a perfectly-made bed every day.
Ensuring a better start to every day begins with a better-made bed. Accomplishing something so simple, yet so fulfilling, can quickly add up to many more achievements throughout your day. And best of all, I love having a cosy, comfy place to look forward to at the end of a long day.
