There is a reason the producers of “Downton Abbey” asked Peter Reed for advice regarding bedlinen for the multi award winning BBC TV series - Expertise, and of course the fact that in 1930’s and 40’s, when the series is set, we really were supplying linen to some of the grandest houses in the land. We have also supplied bespoke linens for some of the largest super yachts and most luxurious hotels around the world.

“Woe betide the maid who accidentally mixed upstairs linen with downstairs”.

In the early 19th century our Signature Cords, synonymous with Peter Reed, provided a clear visual reference for household staff — the more cords, the better the quality — 5 cords for the master bedrooms, 3 or 4 for the guest rooms and 1 or 2 for the nursery and staff, each cord sewn meticulously by hand with no less than 28 stitches per inch.
Today, Peter Reed’s signature cording remains a reliable guide to quality. We offer a range of thread counts in both percale and sateen cotton, as well as ultra-soft linen blends.

Monogram & Embroidery Design

Adding a monogram is the ultimate level of bespoke luxury. Our designers will work closely with you to create a unique signature that suits your personality. We will help you select fonts and colours, and decide whether letters are intertwined in a traditional fashion – inspired perhaps by a family crest – or reproduced in a more informal, contemporary style. We will take your vision and make it a reality using the finest materials and craftsmanship available.

It doesn’t have to be a wedding, Anniversaries, gifts for a new home, significant birthdays, special thank-yous – Peter Reed Linen will always be welcome and treasured by future generations.

Thread Counts and Expertise

WHAT MAKES THE BEST COTTON SHEET?
Sheeting fabrics probably receive more wear and laundering than any other textile, and the weaving construction is critical to the durability and comfort. The ideal fabric is a symmetrical plain weave where equal density warp and weft single yarns are interlocked to produce a high concentration of yarn intersections. The symmetry of the weave will ensure that the day-to-day wear occurs evenly and ironing will not favour a particular knapp of the cloth.
THREAD AND WEAVE.
The Thread count is the number of threads per square inch of fabric. So we hear you say ‘The higher the thread count the better the quality’ - NOT necessarily The maximum TC using a single yarn is approx 250 psi (around 300 after shrinkage) fabrics with a higher thread count are made from multifold yarns 2,3 or 4 Ply. We only use the best 2 Weaves.

Attention to detail is the hallmark of Peter Reed. Your bedroom is a haven of comfort and your bedding should look and feel incredible for years to come. That’s why we insist on finishing that is second to none:

Woven selvedges that outlast sewn hems, even after years of laundering.

Generous hems (at least 12 stitches per inch) not only look attractive but also ensure durability and simplify hand ironing.

Flat sheets have high shrinkage allowance, allowing adequate tuck-ins on extra deep mattresses or mattresses with toppers – increasingly common in modern households.

Classic cord stitching identifies higher thread count cloth.

Overlocking safety stitch and traditional mitred pillowcases.

Our extensive thread library, allows us to colour-match embroidery or cording threads to any requirement.
