"We are a small, independent company that embraces individuality." – Anki Spets
Area is a New York company that makes really nice bedding and home accessories. Swedish founder, Anki Spets, started Area in 1990 to offer informal yet sophisticated products for the home and continue the Scandinavian tradition of good design for everyday
Area products are an expression of a personal design perspective, which constantly strives for excellence.
All area products are designed by Anki Spets. The carefully chosen colors, one-of-a-kind patterns and subtle details are what make each area item distinct and unique. All of their products are made from natural fibres. Materials and factories are carefully chosen from around the world to ensure quality goods that last.
They offer continuity and endless coordination possibilities. Products are designed to last both in style and in quality. They help create intelligent, well-designed personal environments – with comfort and personality.
At Area, they like to keep things simple, including their care instructions, there are brief instructions on their packaging, but here are some more helpful hints:
All Area items can be machine washed except for wool blankets, Area linen quilts and printed linen pillows (see these product pages for dry cleaning information)
Wash bedding before use in warm or cold water on the regular or gentle cycle.
Use a mild detergent (many detergents contain chemicals that are harmful to fabrics)
Use a non-chlorine bleach on whites, but only if necessary
Tumble dry on low or medium heat and be careful not to over-dry, it makes fabric brittle and causes shrinking and wrinkling
Iron while linens are still camp. If dry, dampen linens with a spray bottle
Use a steam iron on warm (never a hot, dry iron)
Iron embroidered pieces (any anything else you’re not sure about) on the back side
*All Area linen and cotton/linen blends can be machine-washed with the same care as their cottons
