I started Piglet in 2017 from my mother's West Sussex garden shed with my fingers crossed that I wasn't alone in looking for high quality basics for my home that are as cosy as they are beautiful. We started tiny with just linen duvet covers and pillowcases in a few calming colours and have since grown the brand to include sleepwear, table linens, curtains and more.
It has been such a exciting journey so far and a real joy to work alongside such a fun and hard working team!
A year into the Piglet journey we outgrew the garden shed and so my mum and I moved our operations to a lovely converted barn on the Knepp Estate in West Sussex. Our growing team at the barn loves nothing more than to run or walk around the estate admiring the wildlife at this pioneering rewilding project (rare species like turtle doves, nightingales, peregrine falcons and purple emperor butterflies are now breeding at Knepp!).
We now also have a secondary base of operation in Illinois to help our business to keep up with growing demand for our linens in the US.
As well as being exceptionally soft, linen's natural long fibres help to regulate your body temperature as you sleep with its breathability and high moisture absorbency. It's also perfectly weighted which helps to ease you into a wonderful deep sleep. Linen is perfect for every season - fresh in the summer and warm in the winter. Another great quality of linen bedding is that it gets softer and softer with wear.
The production of linen is very sustainable as every part of the flax plant can be used. It is a rotation crop, farmed naturally in small batches.
