The Cotton Basket started with the search for a simple, pure cotton pyjama in the UAE. Having just arrived in 2016 it proved impossible, everything was a poly blend and extremely uncomfortable to sleep in. A good lightweight cotton pyjama lends itself to the best sleep and it may be a small luxury but our belief is that it is an essential part of the sleep ritual. About eight years ago the opportunity finally presented itself and The Cotton Basket was established as a haven for pure textiles, nightwear and homeware to make your house a paradise. It is about personal joy, whether you are wearing the softest cotton nightdress or enjoying a blissful sleep in the purest hand block printed quilt.
The Cotton Basket use traditional printing, dyeing and weaving techniques, avoiding synthetic materials and mass production methods used in today’s world. Adopting the slow fashion trend we want you to wear our pieces for years, even decades, to come. We have been collaborating with craftspeople and artisans from around the world to create beautiful original fabrics and homewares using the finest materials and factories for our timeless products.
Consequently, pure quality fabric is the philosophy behind everything The Cotton Basket does. Each piece is made with integrity and kindness from the highest quality material. By using organic cotton with a touchable soft texture we offer you the prefect blend of lightweight, airy and soft products and in the process have made a better choice for your skin and our environment.
In retaliation to fast fashion we believe Fewer is Better. Each item is hand-crafted and available only in limited quantities. But they are made extra ordinary through careful personal selected fabrics, precise silhouettes and attention to detail. We work closely with each of our craftsman, protecting and safeguarding the traditional trade from being overtaken by fast fashion. In turn we bring you as much information as possible about the origins of each item so that you can make an informed choice based around the values that matter to you most as an individual.
