At Kwitonda lodge in Rwanda, beds are clothed in deep red and tan to create a feeling of refuge after a hard day trekking the mountain gorillas:
“Each suite has been designed as a luxurious refuge for post-trek relaxation with a cosy sitting area warmed by a fireplace.”
We also offer bespoke dyed shades for clients subject to a minimum of around four dozen sets which is perfect for a bespoke hotel creating a unique bedroom experience. Guests often gasp in delight entering a Reed bedroom in one of the Singita lodges across Africa.
Several of our longest trading clients in the luxury hospitality industry use our ability to service coloured bedlinen and dress their bedrooms with dyed sheets from our collection. Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana use our coloured linens in their suites to create a rare and authentic bedroom. Our stockholding allows this client to top up regularly throughout the season with additional dyed linen which perfectly matches the stock which they already have on their beds.
Our vat dye recipes ensure that these linens do not fade with repeated washing, and that subsequent top up deliveries match older stock exactly. Guests experience the quality of our beautiful bedlinen and we often get people contacting us through our sew-in-label after a visit to track down their very own set of our linen for their home. Is there a better advertisement for us than that !
So if you are thinking about upgrading your bedlinen or décor for this Spring for your home or hotel, then please contact us and remember that we don’t offer linens in “only black” but in a range of many colours – which does include black incidentally!
