Complete your bedding set with this delightfully soft pair of welcoming housewife pillow cases. Available in a perfect white finish, these pillows will bring a sense of tranquility to any bedroom. And with a peach feel, these cosy pillows are smooth and sumptuous to the touch – the perfect tonic after a busy day. The pillowcases are made from 100% polyester microfibre, so they’re ultra-durable. They’re also easy care, so you get stress-free washing and ironing, with quick drying too.
If you’re not familiar with a housewife pillowcase, they are the stand (and most popular) case, found in most homes. They feature an inside flap at one end, which stops the pillow from escaping and they fit snugly over the pillow too, which helps reduce creasing and sagging. Ideal if you want a crisp finish to your bedding set. These cases only require a minimal amount of ironing too, so a real time saver.
So, why ‘housewife’ you might be saying? In the 1880s, the Housewives Co-operative in Bolton adapted the standard version with the flap, and the name was born in their honour. A fun fact for you!
