Cotton = Comfort for Bedding

As simply stated as “You are What you Eat”…”Live in What You Wear“.

We do push the envelope wearing the latest season’s colors and vogue.  Have you ever forced a stiff poly-blend tunic over a pair of skinny-to-tight nylon jeans? Consumers are notorious for popping their wardrobes with an obscure vest or the new fad shoes, discarding practical and blisters. Guilty, however, when it comes to an investment, we spend on comfort, overlooking “the here for a minute” fall fashions, and dedicating more money to the softest cotton pajamas.  Do you sleep in scratchy?  Insist on a comfy cozy night’s sleep by creating custom cotton bedding.  Ensure the recommended eight hours with heavenly cotton sheeting, luxurious cotton duvet covers and fluffy matelasse coverlets.  Here to bring you comfort are a few of Roth & Tompkins Textiles softest offerings:

Cotton = Comfort for Furniture

Consider a classic finely tailored suit.  This piece is the foundation of our wardrobe in the same way our sofa anchors our living room.  Should your long lasting sectional sofa be upholstered in a synthetic?  We beg to differ.  Our standards demand the “naked test”.  Not that we lounge in our birthday suits, but at the expense of our home furnishings, we should have the option.  Above are some popular Roth “frame-fantastic” fabrics. (And yes, they pass the naked test).
