Ilkley London Values

At Ilkley London we are inspired by nature and want to therefore ensure that we protect that inspiration as well as conduct our business in line with our values of honesty, openness and kindness. We will put these values before profit.

Our suppliers are experts in their fields and produce small runs with attention to detail and quality. We also meet and work closely with all of those involved in our products so we are sure that we are working to the same end goals and values. We aim to build lasting and long-term relationships with all of our manufacturers. 

All of our nightwear is printed and manufactured in India by a Sedex approved manufacturer. Their team is highly skilled and we work hand in hand to achieve the best possible quality. Our Homeware is Made to Order in West London and our Accessories are made in Frome, Somerset.

We ensure that our duck feather cushion inners are sourced responsibly from a supplier who meets all the standards of DEFRA, IDFL and EDFA. Read more about this here

Our socks are made specially for Ilkley London at a Yorkshire-based manufacturer in one of the UK's oldest surviving textile mills. It was owned by the philanthropist Sir Titus Salt who also built the historic Salts Mill in Saltaire (which is well worth a visit and houses the largest Hockney collection in the world).

As a small business we buy small batches or make to order which limits waste and makes better business sense. It may mean we are occasionally out of stock or orders take a little longer.

Our packaging uses a cotton drawstring bag to protect it in shipment and for re-use at home for laundry, travelling or storing to name a few. We ship in a recyclable paper bag and are committed to a zero plastic policy.

To help our business grow we use a talented team of freelancers from design, garment tech and photography right through to finance and IT. It means as a business we can stay flexible and agile and respond to the needs of our growing business. With everyone we work with our values remain the same.

Please do let us know what you think of Ilkley London nightwear, homeware or if you stay at Little Cottage Shipton where you will find all of our passions in one place. 

As we grow we will continue to do more.... aiming high and not going low.
