Between the Sheets is the premier manufacturer and supplier of quality exotic Bed Linen. Our fantastic range is a well established brand supplying our unique range of bed linen to the discerning shopper worldwide.
Between the Sheets has been established for over twenty four years and has had a high profile
web presence since 1998. (We are the same internet age as Google!).
A bright idea
The idea for Between the Sheets was the brain child of Between the Sheets founder and Design Director Jane Allen. She had been looking for some new bed linen and could find nothing she wanted to buy.”At the time – in the early 90’s the only bed linen available was boring old Poly-Cotton bed linen. There was nothing tactile, fun or sexy available and I could see that if I wanted to get something out of the ordinary then so would other people!”
Jane quickly set to work searching and researching suitable fabrics and came up with the then revolutionary idea of a range of bed linen made from tactile fabrics – Silk, Satin, Velvet, Latex and PU. After much effort fabric suppliers were tracked down and Jane started to make the first bed linen – literally on the kitchen table.
Very soon production was moved in to an industrial unit and Between the Sheets opened for business. This was long before the internet and the business grew slowly at first through newspaper & magazine advertising and word of mouth. Within a year or two however the business had grown substantially with a team of machinists producing the entire range of products here in Wiltshire.
On to the fledgling internet
In 1998 Between the Sheets made an early foray on to the internet and into e commerce, one of the very earliest companies to pioneer Business to Consumer Marketing. We now offer an amazing 3000 products on a website that contains well over 200 pages.
In 2004 the whole company moved to new Headquarters in Hopton Park, Devizes, Wiltshire from where we still operate. The facility which extends to over 4500 sq ft includes a design studio and workshops, offices and warehousing. Production, Customer Care, Accounts and Sales and Marketing are all based in Devizes.
Jane made the first of many buying trips to China. Not to outsource production as with so many other firms but to find quality manufacturers of fabric. The fabric was then shipped in rolls to the UK to be made here – a practice Between the Sheets has followed to the present day.
