Undercover Living is a London-based bedding brand that's hell-bent on improving its customers' quality of sleep and brightening up their bedrooms in the process. It was founded in 2018 by Miriam Tyrangiel, who drew on her background in branding and design to set about bringing an original approach and fresh aesthetic to premium bed linen, in an attempt to offer an alternative to the plain white sets that had pervaded the market. The result? Ultra-soft sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers imbued with clean, contemporary design and – crucially – sustainably made, using eco-friendly fabrics.
The fabrics in question are Tencel – a revolutionary botanical yarn renowned for its lightweight nature and temperature-controlling properties – and 300-thread-count organic cotton, which offers the familiar crisp and cool feel of cotton with reduced use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs. Thanks to their insulating yet breathable properties, both fabrics are ideal for year-round use – they'll keep you warm in winter and cool in the summer months.
Not only does Undercover Living take its environmental responsibilities seriously, but its commitment to the welfare of its workers is also seriously worth commending. Behind every single piece of Undercover bedding is a family-run business of highly skilled craftspeople who care deeply about what they do and are fairly rewarded for their hard work . Based in Guimaraes in northern Portugal, a region with a long history of textile manufacturing, the people behind Undercover's products enjoy fair working conditions and a friendly atmosphere. So you can rest easy – literally – knowing that your bedding is making a positive impact.
Of course, it would be remiss not to call attention to the refreshingly modern aesthetics of Undercover's bedding. Colour and pattern are utilised playfully yet tastefully – from the striking abstract print of the Linus bedding set to the Lido's deep ocean-inspired hues, these are pieces that are designed to instantly liven up your bedroom. But don't take our word for it – give Undercover a go for yourself and notice the difference.
