Layla Grayce is pleased to present a Q&A chat with the folks at Matteo, a cool and collected line of bedding for adults and babies. Welcome Matteo – please share your hip design aesthetic with us!
What is the inspiration for Matteo and what makes it unique?
Our basic philosophy from the beginning has been that we tend to our beds every day, and because of this, we need to keep our beds simple. Our mission has always been to create simple sheets from the most luxurious textiles in the world. We spin yarns from the finest natural fibers – Egyptian cotton, Peruvian alpaca, Baltic flax, and Nepalese cashmere. We weave with leading fabric mills from all around the world where the collective wisdom of centuries is combined with cutting-edge technology. And finally, we sew right here in Los Angeles in a large workshop adjacent to our design studio. The constant circulation between design and production yields a fertile creative environment and unparalleled quality control. Ultimately, we are inspired every day. Recently, the Coachella Music Festival was definitely a fervent source of inspiration – the impressionable youth, the diversity of melody, collective energy and intention. We hope the pieces we create become the authentic expression of these types of experiences.
Matteo is known for using high quality organic linen, making your company the definition of eco-chic. How else is your company green or socially conscious?
The secret to being green with linen is that though linen is very difficult and time-consuming to produce, the flax plant itself is naturally resistant to pests and weeds. Thus flax requires little to no herbicide-enhanced care, which resulting less damage to the soil. This is directly tied to our idea of luxury – utilizing renewable resources, knowing that the craftsmen that who made your bedding were paid a living wage – it’s extends everywhere. We really strive to create socially conscious simplicity and because of this we never waste – materials, time, and talent.
With so many wonderful pieces to select from, what do you consider to be the signature Matteo bedding?
Impossible to say! Our beds are always rotating with the seasons and our moods. Sometimes we sleep on the deck under a linen sheet; sometimes we weigh down the duvet with blankets. Comfort is key, and being true to your mood reigns king.
What items would you suggest for our customers to create the ultimate Matteo bed?
The ultimate Matteo bed is one that stands in calm contrast to the complicated demands of life outside – your own modern sanctuary where you can refresh your mind, body, and soul. The possibilities are endless, and the combinations allow for creativity – take pleasure in assembling the bed that works for you and makes you unique.
