Bou Soie is a sustainable pyjama line founded in 2022 in Hackney, London. We were born from the desire to create a sustainable line that would help keep the UK tailoring industry alive. Founded by a tailor, we felt that a tailor’s contribution was just as important to our company as the design of the product.

We are focused on delivering high-quality pyjamas made by experienced tailors, with products to make you feel great from the inside out. Bou Soie pyjamas have been designed to be exceptionally soft on sensitive skin. Cut from a silky, lightweight Bamboo viscose blend. Bamboo fibres are absorbent and have quick drying qualities which collect moisture from the skin, creating a fresh and hygienic feel, ready for a rejuvenating night's sleep. Bou Soie is the final step in your self-care routine. 

 

Bou Soie seeks to find solutions that will minimise our environmental impact. We craft your pyjamas using organically grown fabrics which are coloured with chemical-free dyes; our products are hand-made in England. Find out more about your products' sustainability.

Bou Soie was founded by Megan

(she/her), a Tailor, Designer, and Pattern Cutter.

 "I started making pyjamas from my bedroom during lockdown. Spending all my time at home, I became obsessed with comfort.

Before lockdown, my concept of fashion was limited to it being a part of the external world. However, during lockdown, I began to redefine my idea of fashion as a tool to enhance my well-being.

As the outside noise fell silent, I became more aware of my immediate surroundings, such as the sensation of different fabrics and what they evoked for me. Becoming so intimately connected with materials really changed the way I designed altogether. My repertoire of design transitioned from predominantly visual design to then opening a world of feeling and sensation design.

 

I realised I could design and shape feeling for the wearer, this incentivised me to create clothing that would feel amazing to wear. Bamboo silk is light and cool to the touch. Its spacious yet elegant shape leaves room for movement and drapes beautifully from your unique curves. 

 

This was the beginning chapter of my journey with Bou Soie Bamboo Silk pyjamas. "
