MONALISON is our dream; the dream of two women who, as friends with shared vision and values, have realised that there’s an important gap in the natural or organic and Fairtrade goods market when it comes to home linens.

We have since turned our talents and love for the good things in life to making some essential things in life good – bringing fresh thinking to providing comfortable, soft, quality natural home & bed linens for your home.

It all begins with a simple vision

We believe in designing products that reflect real joy and happiness as well as a love of nature – in their feel, colour and timeless style. All while ensuring the people involved in every stage of their production get an honest and fair deal along the way.

That way we and everyone, from our Fairtrade cotton farmers, to our ethical European manufacturing partners, to our final customers, will sleep better at night – knowing that the respect we have for one another and the world we share will still be there in the morning, every day, for a long time to come.

QUALITY & STYLE

The first MONALISON collection starts with a striking range of 100 % organic cotton duvet covers, fitted sheets and matching pillow cases. Soft and silky to the touch, thanks to single weave 300 thread sheeting, our organic bed linens come in an unusual choice of contemporary designs and colours.

Our very first designs are inspired by flowing Arctic landscapes in peaceful white, with muted greys and blues. Or you can indulge in "handcrafted” style with a retro touch in shades of heart-warming ochre.

We also offer designer throw cushions in organic cotton or natural linen – nature’s original fabric.

All designs are achieved with chemical-free, organic dyes and non-toxic finishes and all products we use are always natural. Even our cushion filling and duvets are made from 100% Merino wool.

 

Quality by MONALISON

  • Organic cotton - Silky-soft 300 thread per inch combed cotton - Easy care
  • Natural linen - Nature's original fabric
  • Merino wool - Lightweight and bulky, elastic, hypoallergenic, natural and sustainable.
  • Organic dyes & non-toxic finishes

The result; bed linens and cushions as lovely to look at as they are to snuggle into.

ETHICALLY ASSURED

 
No hidden nightmares on the manufacturing front either. Our bedding range is confected in Europe. On one hand it helps assure ethical working conditions for the factory workers involved. On the other, it pleases us to support the local ‘savoir-faire’ of an age-old textile industry. Last but not least, it assures our customers of a top quality product.

For this collection we have partnered a Fairtrade (certified by FLOCERT) manufacturer in Portugal recognised for its experience and excellent quality, as well as for its seamless work with suppliers and producers of GOTS certified organic and fairly traded cotton.

HOW YOU CAN HELP US SWEETEN THE DREAM

Everything is in place to bring the MONALISON brand, and the refreshing choice it offers conscientious homeowners, to life.

To turn the dream into reality, we just need your sponsorship to boost our own investments to help us finance the first phase of our production. Every little bit will help us get the ball rolling to move the full MONALISON product range into caring homes.

But we are not asking you to pledge something for nothing… in our eyes all good deeds supporting a world we want to live in, sleep in, love in and cosy up to, should be rewarded with an extra special thank you.

  • U kunt een extra hoeslaken toevoegen aan elke combo. Voeg gewoon het bedrag (55 €) toe aan het beloofde bedrag. Er is geen plaats voorzien door Kickstarter om dit aan te geven. In het formulier dat wij u aan het einde van de campagne zullen sturen, zullen wij u vragen om te bevestigen dat u een extra hoeslaken wenst, alsook de kleur en de gewenste afmeting te bevestigen.
  • Vous pouvez ajouter un drap-housse supplémentaire à tout combo. Il suffit d'ajouter le montant (55 €) à votre niveau d'engagement. Il n'y a pas de note prévu par Kickstarter pour indiqué cela.

Take note, our pillow cases come as a set of 2 identical pillow cases – each design is uniquely identified by its own name (different from the duvet cover sets) to allow you to specify and mix & match the pillow case designs as you wish with the duvet cover of your choice.

  *** ADDITIONAL DUVET COVER SIZE ***

Europe Jumeaux: 2 x 140 x 200 cm available for all duvet cover models except for model Kiruna

CAMPAIGN TIMELINE

Kickstarter campaigns have a limited lifespan to make or break – so don’t delay in making your pledge. The important dates to note are:

 

OUR PLEDGE TO BACK YOURS

At the end of the day, our goal is to fulfil the pre-product orders received as early as possible and to ensure the highest level of quality and customer service. As soon as we receive the goods at our warehouse, all units will be inspected and shipped. A tracking number will be sent to the email address associated with your Kickstarter account and the product should reach you as soon as is possible for you to ENJOY!

By backing our Kickstarter project, we understand you are placing precious trust in the MONALISON brand, our team and our vision for a premium socially and environmentally caring product. We appreciate every single backer and thank each of you for taking the time to help us along the way.

WHO ARE WE?

LISE DROUIN is a designer with long experience in the French fashion industry and knows intimately the entire cycle of clothing and textile development. Her passion for design, different cultures, interesting people, spontaneity, quality of life is evident in her designs for the MONALISON home linen collections.

MARIE BRAND is a business developer with experience in the raw materials and production industry. She is someone who means business – but loves the warmth and cosiness of her family home and cares greatly about others and what is happening in the world around her.

Marie Brand                      &                            Lise Drouin
Marie Brand & Lise Drouin

 “We wanted to do something where our talents would contribute to something positive, both socially and environmentally. We don’t want to merely develop another ‘nice’ home decorations product – we also want to create a special value for all people involved in the production process as well as for those who get to live, love and enjoy life with our linens for a long time to come. Thank you for your support.”

Risks and challenges

The start-up of any manufacturing effort poses risks. With our joint past business experiences we know that. We are therefore working extremely hard to ensure any snags are kept to the minimum and have purposefully partnered with the very best manufacturers to ensure our products will not disappoint.

That said, in honesty we think it’s important to be clear that it is always possible that potential problems may still arise in the first production processes due to the nature of our start-up, the timing of different steps and, ultimately, the level of successful response to our Kickstarter pre-order campaign. While all our designs are primed and ready for production, typical lead time from first production run to warehouse delivery is estimated at 90 days. These 90 days are needed to order the organic Fairtrade cotton and ship it to Portugal where it will be spun, woven, dyed and turned into your special bed linen – or designer cushion – depending on your pledge. This time may run longer if any delays occur. Such delays could be due to: weather, material supplies, factory availability, and most importantly making sure all products go through our quality testing.

We are offering pre-orders based on the entire selection of duvet cover styles, colours and sizes. But we have to point out that we have factory minimums to meet in terms of first production runs. Where we do not have enough demand for a particular design or size, we may have to drop that particular option and ask you to make a second choice in terms of the design or sizing of your Kickstarter investment reward.
