After years of being an old t-shirt and pants type of girl, I’ve recently become a serious fan of pyjamas. They keep you cosy in winter and stop you feeling a draft once you’ve inevitably flung off the duvet in summer; pyjamas are always comfortable. Putting your pyjamas on makes bedtime feel important - pyjamas mean business!

Just like the food we put into our bodies we want the clothes we wear on our skin to be as healthy for us and our environment where possible, which is just one of the reasons behind my latest sleepwear obsession; Tales Of Thread.

Founded by Rebecca Fordham in 2016 and inspired by her life long love affair with African culture, Tales Of Thread sleepwear pieces are made in Ghana and the UK, in female owned or managed factories, paying above market wages in safe working environments. At the heart of the brand is the commitment to empowering women, not just through employment, but also in housing and training marginalised, homeless and excluded women.

Made of organic cotton and silk, in hand painted designs, featuring luxe details such as piping and natural shell buttons, the pyjamas effortlessly combine England’s tailoring expertise with Ghana’s craft and textile heritage.

While the short sleeve palm set from the Ashanti collection inspired by batik artistry is perfect for holiday packing (or even a mini staycation in the comfort of your own bedroom), and the classic French navy set is elegant enough for a night out (never mind a night in), right now, I cant get enough of the pink pineapple print!

Yes, the price tag might be a little bit higher than you would normally spend on pyjamas, but it’s hard to think of many other items you’ll get more wear out of, right?
