A very exciting new development that we've been working on for a while to get it just right. It’s a 55% linen/45% cotton blend, woven into a beautiful basket weave with a visible texture and washed to achieve a soft smooth hand feel with the best properties of both fibers. Fabrics are after all just fabrics but this feels like a small revolution. Resembling an antique linen with weight similar to a pure linen, the mix of cotton makes the hand a bit softer, the wrinkles slightly smoother. Comes in sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases.

"I have no interest in telling people how their homes should look. I am very interested though in making great products that are easy to live with and that people will not regret spending money on." - Anki Spets
Anki Spetswas born in Sweden, she completed her design education at Beckmans school of design in Stockholm where she worked in fashion, designing both clothing and shoes. SPETS realized that though she loved working with fabrics, the pace, focus on trend and novelty in the fashion industry went against her beliefs and ambitions to create products with a longer life span.
In the late 1980's, ANKI moved to New York City, where she noticed a void of relaxed, sophisticated modern style in the American home industry. The now commonly known term "modern bedding" did not exist when ANKI brought her Scandinavian design perspective to the marketplace. Clearly a new way of thinking about bedding was born with AREA's start in 1990.
ANKI's style, with its natural origins in the Scandinavian design tradition, evolved over time and got a dose of Italian influence - a love of everything olive green and a belief that all seams can be beautiful. Travels around the world in search of the best fabrics and manufacturers during her fashion work in the mid-eighties were an important educational foundation. The 25 years of AREA and New York living has deepened her understanding for what works in people's homes and has matured the style and concept of AREA. Throughout the company runs a relaxed approach to design and the trends that go with it.
