Guimarães, Portugal

World-class sheets from generations of textile experts.

Welcome to Guimarães

 

This medieval town is situated in Northern Portugal, and proudly boasts UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

We're extremely proud that our journey to create the world's most comfortable sustainable bedding led us here.

The beautiful city is steeped in history that goes far beyond the reputation of being the finest textiles producers in the world.

 

UNESCO World Heritage

Its historic town centre is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001

This is in recognition for being an "exceptionally well-preserved and authentic example of the evolution of a medieval settlement into a modern town" in Europe.

Quick Facts

The city has a population of around 50,000 inhabitants.

The municipality is an area of 240 square kilometres (93 sq mi).

The average annual temperature is 14 °C.

Vibrant Days

You can wander the cobbled streets by day and take in the architecture.

Stop for something refrshing and unwind.

Relaxed Evenings

Enjoy the tranquillity of the nights and enjoy some local cuisine.

Minho (Vinho Verde) is the regional wine - just make sure it is served ice cold.



Sleep Like a King (or Double!)

Guimarães has a significant historical importance due to the role it played in the foundation of Portugal.

The city is often referred to as the "birthplace of Portugal" or "the cradle city" (Cidade Berço in Portuguese) because it is widely believed that Portugal's first King, Afonso Henriques, was born there.


Our partners (new family)

Family owned


Outside the city and nestled in more secluded countryside, we are proud to partner with this fourth-generation family owned textile mill. The pinnacle of high-end textile manufacturing, they've been making world-class bedding for over 110 years.

Unrivalled expertise and craftsmanship, but even more importantly everyone is paid well and treated like family (which they often are).

From weaving our eucalyptus, dying and finishing. Choosing experts in every field removes the guesswork from reaching scientifically perfect year-round sleep.
