Back-to-school season: time for new beginnings, new friendships, and new bedding!
As the sun sets earlier and sleep schedules become more routine, a new set of sheets and cozy quilt or comforter is a creative way to generate a little excitement about snuggling in for the night — something that sure can’t hurt at bedtime!
Our newest sheets, quilts, and comforters are all about imagination, individuality, and appreciation for the colorful way kids view the world. We sat down recently with Erin Fortin, our Children’s Designer, to talk about the new patterns — her first bedding collection.
How is designing children’s bedding different from designing clothing?
I thought designing bedding would be like a whole new world, but it really isn’t. We are speaking to the same child….whether she likes a cute outfit or a printed pony sheet, her choice is about self-expression.
What appeals to you most about designing bedding for kids?
My favorite thing about designing home product for kids is the fact that a child’s room is their most special place in the world (one that they can control). It was important to me to find or create prints that would fit into these little worlds well. I wanted to make something for her that she just HAD to have.
Can you share a bit of your personal inspiration for one of the new patterns?
For boys I would buy the superhero masks a thousand times over for my own son but I created them with my little brother Blake in mind, who always seems to have a mask and a cape on even if it’s imaginary. This print came to be because of him and his obsession with all things super.
