You probably already know of the many benefits of a good night’s sleep. A restful night is key for building up a stronger immunity, boosting skin repair, gaining higher energy levels and more. Getting enough shut-eye, however, remains a challenge. Work pressure, anxiety and even revenge bedtime procrastination are but some of the more common reasons standing in the way of a better night’s sleep. A bedding upgrade might not solve all your problems—indeed, it is frivolous to assume that a set of luxury bedding will miraculously remedy your sleep cycle—but the perfect sheets can provide an extra level of comfort to bring you one step closer to a more restful night.
The next problem lies in picking out the perfect bedding. You are first faced with questions of material, thread count, fibre and weave. Next come decisions on comfort, design, aesthetic and style. Are you someone who demands hotel levels of comfort from your abode? Explore silky-soft materials like bamboo, sateen and lyocell. Or perhaps you are the sort to change your sheets on a weekly basis—in which case, materials such as French or flax linen will be able to stand up to those washes. And for those simply looking for new luxury bedding? You can’t go wrong with a set of timeless cotton sheets.
Below, Vogue rounds up five home-grown bedding brands that will hopefully, grant you the gift of a perfect night’s rest.

Shopping for sheets and linens can be a daunting affair. It is too easy to get lost in the jargon of ‘thread count’ and ‘weave’ without understanding how such components affect the way you sleep. Founded by Alex and Clara, Sunday Bedding was created as a solution to end this frustration. Their aim? To bring well-made, well-priced sheets directly to your doorstep. The brand offers their signature sheets in a variety of materials—chemical-free 100% Organic Cotton, ultra-durable French Linen and smooth and silky Bamboo Sateen—each tailored to fit a particular need and aesthetic. For those with allergies and chemical sensitivities, opt for sheets made from Organic Cotton or French Linen. If you are looking to recreate the luxurious hotel experience at home, Bamboo or Cotton Sateen are the materials of choice for you.
Vogue’s pick: Sunday Bedding’s French Linen Set comes with a fitted sheet, two queen-size pillows and a duvet cover with four twill ties at each corner. The fabric—100% French linen—softens with every wash, making it a valuable addition to your home.
Available at Sunday Bedding.

Homegrown brand Sojao was founded in 2018 when co-founders Priscilla and Janice simply couldn’t find what they wanted on the market—super soft, great looking sheets that are ethically made and affordably priced. The brand name, which means ‘go to sleep’ in Hindi, was chosen as a tribute to the Indian cotton farmers behind their best-selling bed sheets. Made with only the finest long-staple fibres (long-staple cotton fibres are less likely to pill as compared to their short-staple counterparts) from GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) 100% organic cotton, Sojao’s sateen-woven sheets are lightweight, incredibly soft and come with a buttery soft finish—the ultimate luxury bedding to snuggle in after a long day.
Vogue’s pick: The Classic White Bundle Set comes with a fitted sheet, a duvet cover and two pillowcases—perfect for all your bedding needs.
Available at Sojao.

Sonno has made waves across our shores with their firm commitment to quality sleep. In 2017, they crafted the perfect mattress—made of natural latex, support foam and memory foam—and offered customers a 100-day trial. Their mantra was simple: if it doesn’t suit you or improve your sleep, return it. To top it off, Sonno has now ventured into a selection of eucalyptus bedsheets that are wondrously silky and decadent to touch. If you’re used to cotton or linen sheets, Sonno’s eucalyptus fibers might just change your mind on your choice of bedding forever. Produced from sustainable wood pulp, their shiny sheets are cleverly hypoallergenic and breathable. Even if you choose to keep your air-conditioning turned off and only have your fan whirring, Sonno’s new, ultra-soft bedding pack will keep your skin cool all day or night.
Vogue’s pick: Sonno’s luxurious eucalyptus fitted sheet set, which comes with a fitted sheet of your choice, pillow case and bolster case. It even comes with a 30-day trial in the rare chance it doesn’t work out for you.
Available at Sonno.

Local luxury home and living brand Weavve was created with the goal of bringing high quality, well-designed items straight to consumers. The brand’s signature lyocell bedding is known for its extreme breathability and moisture-wicking properties—important elements for a good night’s rest in our tropical climate. Weavve’s latest collaboration with Scene Shang introduces two new designs to their bedding collection.
