It's meaning - "Bespoke" is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. "It may be altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser." - Wikipedia
Bespoke is becoming more and more popular, as lines seek to lure the millennial customer. Millennials have a strong desire to differentiate and has them searching for unique products, particularly in their homes, to reflect their individual & original style.
Traditionally, customization in the bedroom was only available in linens. Now, there are companies that can tailor just about anything from upholstered beds, duvets & pillows, and even the comfort of your mattress.
Home Treasures (manufacturer of fully bespoke luxury Italian linens) expand the offering for bedding. The client can choose from base fabrics of cottons & linens, a wide - and we mean WIDE - variety of colours, and a well-developed stream of finishing options. The combinations are endless! Their quilted coverlets are something to covet!
Cashmere & Rare Fibre Throws are a new, fun favorite showing up in our showroom later this Spring. A unique piece is a simple 6 step process. Select your preferred fibre composition, weave weight, size and finish for a true made just for you!
Table linens have also joined the Bespoke trend. We will be featuring a new collection from Italy, that offers 36 linen colours, specially coated making them ultra resistant to wrinkles and stains. Stay tuned!
