OUR STORY

 

'FOR THE LOVE OF SLEEP!' 

Design-led, organic and ethical sleepwear and loungewear for modern families.  

At THE BRIGHT COMPANY we think bedtimes can be much brighter! Pulling on some more luxurious sleepwear really can make bedtimes more of an everyday indulgence.

Made with passion: our commitment to ethical production

Our Factory is based in the beautiful Portuguese countryside outside the town of Guimares, a UNESCO World Heritage site and centre of Portuguese manufacturing industry. 

The second- generation family owned factory we partner with have close ties to mills and printers in the surrounding area and have been making beautiful pj's for decades!
Their expertise and craftsmanship is unparalleled, but even more importantly everyone is paid well and treated like family (which they often are).

For us, form really must follow function; our designs play close attention to the distinct physical needs of the wearer. For example the signature SLIM JYMS pyjamas are designed to be slim fitting so that they don't 'ride up' at night leaving little ones with cold patches. While the MONTY SLEEPSUIT avoids the baggy excessive fabric so common in sleepsuit designs today, making the first tentative first crawls, steps and runs much easier.

Sleep with peace of mind : super-soft fabrics, no chemical treatments, using GOTS certified organic cotton

All our products since AW16 use super-soft, GOTS certified organic cotton jersey fabric. It's the softest we can possibly source! It also meets the strict OEKO-TEX Standard 100, ensuring no harmful substances or dyes are used at any stage of production - crucial for peace of mind when creating garments for young children. With the importance of sleep for all of us, night time comfort shouldn't be overlooked!

Organic cotton is also helping our drive to take the most sustainable approach to production that we can.
