Laura Ashley Bedding got its origin over 50 years ago by Laura and her husband Bernard Ashley. Inspired by a Women's Institute exhibition on traditional handicrafts at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Laura and her husband began printing their fabrics on the kitchen table. Unable to find suitable fabrics to make the patchwork quilts Laura wanted to make, they started producing their own fabric. Laura Ashley Bedding is the result of their innovative and inspirational work. Today Laura Ashley is one of the best-loved home furnishing and fashion companies in the world, with their Laura Ashley bedding line known worldwide.
