The Colonial Collection

All products are hand cut, torn and machined giving a bespoke tailored finish far removed from mass-produced or market goods. Plus we monitor every stage of the process; therefore our cotton can be traced from the farm on which it is grown, through to your own bedroom.

Our Colonial Collection is inspired by the time of the Great British Raj, a monumental moment in history that radically altered the nature of the textile trade worldwide. The period of British rule on the Indian subcontinent between 1858 and 1947 was when governance by the East India Company was transferred to Queen Victoria, who in 1876 was proclaimed Empress of India. To pay homage to this momentous period, Barker has launched:

The Colonial Classics collection – which is perfect for the traditionalist and those seeking simplicity. With fresh clean lines for an uncomplicated, conventional and classic look.

The Colonial Contemporary collection – with subtle designs and textures that are ideal for those seeking a more modern look.

By choosing to have your items laundered before they arrive you are able to use the items straight away. Your newly washed and ironed bedding will be beautifully presented, in our signature gift box and delivered to your door, bed ready.
