Desmond & Dempsey is a pyjama brand founded by a couple after she (Dempsey) kept borrowing his (Desmond) shirts to sleep in and from a desire to savour mornings - especially Sunday ones.

Desmond & Dempsey travel the world to find unique prints and have recently launched a marble print that they created by hand in Florence at a small book binders shop - see the video here.

I love a brand that does something really really well - that pays attention to detail, has an authentic story and that is great quality - these are things that Desmond & Dempsey defiantely have and do. 

Here is some more info from the founders Joel & Molly (aka Desmond & Dempsey).

NAME OF BRAND: Desmond & Dempsey

DATE IT WAS FOUNDED: September 2014, although we spent nearly a full year figuring out how to make a pair of D&Dโ€™s (the perfect pair of PJโ€™s).

BY WHOM IT WAS CREATED: Joel Jeffery and Molly Goddard

WHY WAS IT CREATED: Because I (Molly) kept stealing Joelyโ€™s shirts for bed and accidentally ruining them. Joel is a bit of an old romantic and tells the story better here.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND:  At Desmond & Dempsey we believe that simple little luxuries can make your day. We create home-wares that bring you that feeling of excitement. The feeling of putting on fresh pyjamas after a long day. Getting into clean crisp sheets. New socks.

We travel the world to find unique prints and or ideas and apply them to practical textiles. As a result, we make quality products for your home. We have started with really great pyjamas.

We have always a love affair with Sundays. Itโ€™s a day for slow living. For pottering around the house making into home. A day for treasuring your loved ones. Itโ€™s a day of a escape. Itโ€™s day when you can forget the outside world and be content with sweetness of doing nothing. Our brand focusโ€™ on Savouring your Sunday, because it is the day when you most appreciate lifeโ€™s simple little luxuries.

WHAT WE SHOULD BUY FROM YOU: We make pyjamas that will rock your socks off. A pair of D&Dโ€™s will change your time in-between the sheets forever.
