Seeing as we spend around a third of our lives in bed, it certainly makes sense to invest in high quality bed linen. But with so many different types of bedding on the market, it can be tricky to navigate. That's why we tend to gravitate towards brands that keep it simple, offering consciously made products that look good and feel good, without costing a bomb. Enter House Babylon. The London-based brand produces beautiful sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers and duvets that tick all our boxes. Read our House Babylon review below for everything you need to know about the brand – from the materials it uses to its approach to sustainability.


House Babylon was founded by Londoner Mariam Elshafie, who, after trying and failing to find high quality bedding that didn't come with a hefty price tag, set out to make it herself. Her belief is that luxury shouldn't be exclusive or elusive, which is why House Babylon takes a direct-to-consumer approach, slashing any unnecessary costs that usually result from the presence of middlemen.


House Bablyon prides itself on its use of long-staple Egyptian cotton threads, which have a superior strength and softness to regular soft-staple cotton. Hand-picked and free of harmful chemicals, the fabric is made to last. The label's pillows and duvets are made using cool, lightweight duck down and feathers in a 100% cotton cover. All down and feathers are EDFA (European Down and Feather Association) certified, so you can be confident in their quality and ethical standard. Everything comes wrapped in biodegradable packaging, reinforcing House Babylon's commitment to sustainability.


House Babylon's collections are characterised by clean, contemporary design. Expect refined colour palettes, the absence of any loud patterns or branding and beautiful double stitched borders and button closings. Understated yet elegant, this is bedding that's designed to complement the rest of your interiors rather than overshadow them.

Our verdict

If you're looking for affordable bed linen that doesn't compromise on quality, you can't go wrong with House Babylon. The combination of luxurious Egyptian cotton and timeless style makes for an instantly improved bedroom. But don't take our word for it: Give it a go for yourself to notice the difference.
