At Julia B., we feature the world’s finest fabrics and exclusive designs, hand-made to your personal specifications.
Julia B. was conceived and launched in 2002 in Greenwich, Connecticut by founder and CEO Julia Berger. Julia was raised in both Tokyo and San Francisco by a Japanese mother and an American father and has traveled extensively throughout her life, both in Asia and the Americas as well as Europe. Early on in her life, Julia lived and studied in Florence, New York City, Tokyo and Hong Kong where she developed the passion and in-depth knowledge for fine, hand-made linens that are the foundation of today’s Julia B. Collections. It is only natural, that the Julia B. designs are shaped by her life experiences - combining Asian simplicity and Western traditions with inventiveness, freshness and style. In this world of mass, machine-made products, Julia's mission is to re-introduce the quality, craftsmanship and joy of truly Hand-Made into our homes and daily lives with her collections. When she is not traveling the world, working side by side with her master embroiderers and suppliers of the finest fabrics, Julia lives and works in Connecticut.
Vintage linens and classic monograms serve as a source of inspiration which guide our ever-evolving designs. Delicate hemstitching, raised-stitched monograming and white-on-white embroidery are all techniques that were routinely used for fine bedding, table and bath linens for centuries and which we have sought to re-establish for our discerning customers. We are proud of these efforts which celebrate the fine handwork of traditional linens with our one-of-a-kind custom products featuring superb craftsmanship - all made individually, by hand, by highly skilled embroiderers.
We select only the finest materials from multi-generational, family-owned businesses from around the world. Our cotton percale and cotton piquet fabrics are sourced from purveyors of the highest quality fabric in Italy; our linen fabrics are woven in Eastern Europe and Belgium; our cashmere is milled in Italy, and our embroidery and appliqué are crafted entirely by hand in Vietnam and Madagascar, where the French legacy of craftsmanship has been passed down for generations to enable us to produce what we believe is the finest quality handwork in the world.
The Julia B. Collections are inspired by traditional embroidery techniques. Our linens can complement the style of any home from traditional to modern: our colors are classic, young, fresh and vibrant and our monogram styles range from art deco to gothic. Combining your own choices of color, fabric, texture and personalization with our hand embroidery techniques, we will create a truly unique and beautiful linen product for you.
HOW IT WORKS
Ordering custom linens starts with color and style. Choose from our broad selection of border styles, luxury fabrics, embroidery thread colors and then add an exquisite monogram to create something truly "couture" and personalized to your tastes. Once your order is received, we will begin designing your custom monogram and a proof will be emailed to you within a few business days. Depending upon the complexity of the order, delivery is usually completed in no more than six to eight weeks and often less.
Julia B. Couture Linens prides itself on creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind, handmade linens to be enjoyed for years to come. We look forward to assisting you as you select and design these unique products for your home!
