Getting quality sleep is more than just choosing the right bed and mattress. While it’s true that the mattress provides support to your body’s contours, it’s the linen that enhances your sleep experience. The type of linen you use will make a huge difference in the comfort of your sleep, depending on a variety of factors; from weave type to fabric type — and yes, the thread count.
Contrary to popular belief, excellent-quality bedding doesn’t have to cost an arm and two legs. Recently, there’s been a rise in homegrown bedding manufacturers offering luxury bed linen at lower prices compared to imported ones. This eliminates the need for the middle man; as well as rental and brand license fees, which usually drive up the retail prices of sheets in department stores.
Here, homegrown bed linen brands from Singapore to shop for the next time you feel like a little pampering. Trust us, it’s worth the investment.

With a name that means “go to sleep” in Hindi, local start-up Sojao offers products that promote just that. The luxury organic bedsheets are buttery smooth, lightweight and durable, perfect for the discerning home owner. The bed linen are made of long-staple cotton, ensuring that the sheets won’t wear thin, and will only get softer with every wash. Additionally, Sojao’s bed sheets boast the perfect thread count (300) using single-ply yarn.
Founders Clara and Alex, with decades of combined experience in the textile manufacturing industry, created Sunday Bedding as a solution to the frustration they faced when shopping for their home.

Whatever fabric you choose, you can be assured that proprietary technology is so the sheets remain wrinkle-free — sans harmful chemicals. All products come with a two-year warranty.
Started by the same creators behind homegrown lingerie brand Perk By Kate, Yuu offers excellent quality bed linen using natural long stable cotton (the same kind that produces Egyptian and Supmia cotton).
