A history of excellence
Our company was originally established in Edinburgh in 1969 by David Monro under the name of “Snuggler” — at that time, duvets were a new idea in the U.K and were available through only a handful of retailers. Our first duvet was made up in David’s bedroom at the family home in Edinburgh. He quickly gained a reputation for quality and had to employ extra hands to help cope with the growing demand.
During the early 1970’s, our duvets twice received the “Best Buy” recommendation from Which? magazine. Sales rocketed and more spacious premises had to be found, first in York Place and then George Street, Edinburgh.
In 1979, we moved again into our current workshop located along Canaan Lane in Morningside.
With duvets becoming increasingly popular and competition growing, we diversified by offering a re-covering and topping-up service where customers could send us their old duvets for a new case and a boost up of more feathers and down. This service and many other products were added to the standard range including pillows, bolsters and cushion pads.
Our shop in Leven Street was opened in 1986 to stock a range of our products including many of the items in the website. Our shop attracted many loyal customers over the years. Now operating from our premises in Canaan Lane, we continue to offer a friendly and personal service to every customer.
In 1996, the company was passed down to the next generation to help modernise the business. In 2010, our first website was launched so that customers throughout the U.K could buy our products and use our services — then, in 2019, we refreshed our brand identity and website to reflect our ambition and help us transition into the next chapter.
Unrivalled quality for feather and down products
We’re a small family business providing excellent service with high standards. We make up our soft furnishings and bedding to last for many years.
Over the decades, we’ve built up a lot of knowledge and expertise through simply working with — and selecting — the highest quality feather and down material. All of our products are hand-filled to specific weights using the highest-grade materials. We choose our feathers and down based on the following criteria:
All of our fillings are ethically sourced from Europe and comply to the highest levels of regulation, namely the Downpass standard and Responsible Down Standard (RDS).
All of our products are completely natural, using only high-grade organic fillings, 100% cotton cambric and natural threads for tailoring.
Understandably, we select our feathers and down based on the quality of comfort it will impart to the final product. In doing this, we remove and disregard feathers that are tough in form, selecting only the best material for the job.
Our supplier chain is regularly monitored and revised based on our own commitment to a more sustainable relationship with the environment. We’ve recently removed large quantities of plastic from our packaging and are always working to cut down waste in all areas of our business, the wider industry and further afield.
As experts in creating and filling all forms of bedding and soft furnishings, we’ve developed a process that has stood the test of time. We specialise in small, one-off orders and can make up our entire range to any size and density from your templates, covers and measurements.
