Welcome to a new series on The Merchant Home blog, where we'll be sharing our favorite sources for the goods we keep and the clothes we wear—or in this case, the clothes we wear to bed. In the first of our new series, we've rounded up five brands that make small-batch and handmade pajamas.
And, if you’re looking for that perfect something, let us know in the comments below and we’ll do the research for you.
The Sleep Shirt offers nightshirts and airy linen pajama sets that are made in Canada with Japanese cotton. The brand's flagship product, a 19th-century inspired sleep shirt (think high necks and long sleeves) became an instant success at launch, spawning an entire collection of elevated loungewear.
Tink and Tiger was born from the idea that "not enough people were making great pajamas". To change that, founder Amanda Greely started designing and producing fine loungewear in 2013. Everything from soft camisoles to gingam two-pieces bare the Made in USA label.
Committed to the idea of "slow fashion", Botanica Workshop manufactures small batch underwear and loungewear made of organic cotton in Los Angeles. The brand's pledge to sustainability reaches beyond the products they make. They also strive to be minimize their environmental impact by sourcing materials and services locally.
To create Sleepy Jones, Andy Spade looked to Pablo Picasso and David Hockney, two artists that famously sported sleepwear while working. Each piece is made with the concept that what you wear to relax doesn't have to be unattractive or ill-fitting.
Based in Istanbul, Poplin Homeware launched in 2010 "with the passion of being at home". The collection, which is made by hand, includes fashionable two-pieces for day wear while working at home and soft nightdresses for winding down at bedtime.
