For classic embroidered bed linen, it doesn’t get better than Ginger Cat. Founders Reana Coetzee and Leolyn Ross began the business two and a half decades ago and are still completely involved in the production process alongside their small core team of longstanding employees.
“This is hands-on manufacturing with a vengeance. Every bit of linen we sell, we make in our factory,” Coetzee explains.
Their range of cotton and linen bedding is created with personalisation in mind, with an array of thread count options, textile colours and threading colours to play with, but our pick of the bunch are their scalloped-edge pillow cases for their nostalgic charm. In terms of inspiration, the pair admits a weakness for antique French linen.
