Bassett Hyde is the inspiration of stylist and world traveler Beverley Hyde whose passion is to seek out artisanal creations throughout Europe and north America and develop modern designs using traditional techniques. The knowledge and expertise needed to produce heritage products is supported and preserved through Bassett Hyde Designs
In a world that is changing at a rapid pace, Bassett Hyde is not seduced or overly concerned with trends or fads, instead focuses on classic, timeless designs passed down through generations. Often carefully selected designs are slightly updated to give a fresh modern look without compromising the original design or historical significance.
While traveling in Italy, Beverley was introduced by a friend to a small family owned business in the south east region of Puglia. With a romantic vision of the trousseau tradition of carefully selected linens Bassett Hyde was created.
Using original designs that have been passed down through generations the fabric is woven on vintage jacquard punch card looms, the processing takes place on site to preserve the quality and integrity of this small Italian family operation.
