To fit mattresses 73cm Max Length x 30cm Max Width
The Original DK Glovesheet
"The sheet that is tailored to fit like a glove".
At DK Glovesheets, we have been manufacturing the original fitted sheets since 1950.
Our original sheet design still fits the mattress better than other fitted sheets.
The deep corners and elastic edge keep them firmly attached to the mattress, without
slipping or rucking. Glovesheets are made from top quality 100% combed cotton interlock,
which is far stronger than the single-jersey material used by most other manufacturers,
and will last for much longer. It is thicker, and softer to lie on. We carefully
and responsibly source our cotton yarns, which are then knitted and dyed in the UK,
before being turned into exceptional quality sheets in our family run factory in Surrey.
Glovesheets come in our full range of colours, and sizes to fit most nursery mattresses.
DK Glovesheets - Mission Statement
In a changing global market, we aim to never lower our standards,
to always source materials and labour ethically and locally,
to provide the customer with a trustworthy product.
DK Glovesheets - Working Practices
Try to make the working environment as interesting and pleasant
as possible for our workers. The team have always worked with in a family atmosphere.
The location of the premises of the business make it a real cottage industry,
it is found in the centre of small Surrey village and acts as
part of the local community as all the workers are local.
There is certainly no age, gender, ethnic or religious discrimination in
the employment of staff.
We are aware of demands of working parents, offering a flexible and thoughtful approach
to working hours.
We prefer to produce high quality products, in a caring working
environment, where all workers have equal status.
We always work to order, avoiding the tedious nature of producing the
same article for long periods of time.
The working day is split into three sessions, with a coffee break
and lunch break, ensuring no one is at the same task for more than
two and a half hours.
Workers are paid with quality rather than speed in mind. Our unique
quality control results in a return rate of 1 in 5000 units.
Have always sourced materials in the UK of the highest quality.
We source 100% of our production components from within the UK or companies
with a fair trade ethos.
The yarn is from Greece, from Cotton grown locally and ginned and spun
by United Textiles, who are currently applying for Fairtrade status.
Yarn is delivered to knitters in Leicester (another small family Co)
and then dyed in Leicester before we collect the fabric to our
workshop in Dormansland.
We then lay out the fabric, cut 100-200 sheets at a time and then
sew, fold, pack the sheets all under one roof.
The finished products are stored in reusable trays ready for dispatch.
The elastic edging comes from a company in Nottingham, the sewing threads
from a manufacturer in Leicester.
This careful sourcing of materials has not had an impact on
the price of the finished product, as we are successfully competing against far
east, Indian and Eastern European competition, and offering a much higher
quality product and service.
