Antique Designs specialise in new antique-style luxury bed linens made to traditional old designs. The range was launched in 1992. This features replicas of original Edwardian and Victorian bed linens. Most are hand worked to include embroidery, drawn thread and crochet work in either 100% cotton or 100% linen. The timeless and durable designs work well in both contemporary and traditional settings.
There is only a limited amount of antique linen available. It has become increasingly difficult to find and is highly priced. Added to this the life expectancy can be uncertain.
Many of the items in this interesting range are almost indistinguishable from the antique originals. These unique designs feature standard pillowcases, continental square pillowcases, sheets, duvet covers and bed covers; some designs are in cotton while others are in linen. Accessories have been added to this collection. Each piece is exquisitely reproduced to an exceptionally high standard using the skills and techniques which were employed by the crafts of the past. They are the closest to the originals as can be found today. The materials used are of the highest quality thus ensuring there are no problems with modern laundering.
