For us, flannel is where it all began.
In December of 1976, on a quest to share the bliss that is a European flannel sheet, we launched a business. At the time, we had only a couple of tiny magazine ads and brochures with flannel swatches to drop in the mail.
Times have changed, but our customers’ love of flannel has only flourished. Today our Signature Flannel Bedding is still made in Europe, using the same traditional methods we used so many years ago — it’s flannel made the way we think flannel should be made.
And it’s still pure cotton. Signature Flannel has a denser weave than most, creating a weightier, more durable sheet. Brushed multiple times on both sides (a rare thing), it has a plush, thick finish that is supremely cozy and resistant to pilling.
A warm layer in winter and cooler than a blanket in summer, Garnet Hill Signature Flannel is simply heavenly. But don’t take our word for it; check out the reviews written by customers who’ve already fallen for it.
Signature Flannel launched our business. We hope the next great customer review it receives will be yours.
Thank you to Editor at Large for hosting the interview and shooting the video.

The year was 1999. Jane was wistfully perusing a home magazine with her sisters when she found the Garnet Hill coverlet of her dreams. “I fell in love with the print immediately, because it reminded me of my grandmother’s bedroom quilts,” she recalled fondly.
Fortunately, her sisters were paying attention and enlisted her brother to chip in on Jane’s Christmas gift that year. It was a good call on their part. “The pattern is a timeless classic, and has been the cover on my bed for almost 17 years!”
Jane’s coverlet still looks beautiful after 17 years.
We checked in with our Customer Service Manager, Erin, who promptly named the coverlet. “I knew it was the Kreta Coverlet the moment I saw Jane’s photo. I joined Garnet Hill in 1996, the year the Kreta Coverlet was first offered, and it was one of the first items I owned — 20 years ago!”

Thank you, Jane, for the fun trip down memory lane. It makes us want to peruse more vintage Garnet Hill catalogs.
We’d love you to share a Garnet Hill item that stole your heart. Leave a comment here, or post a pic on Instagram @garnethill #garnethill. We may even be able to unearth it in our archives!
