Inspired by a love of coastal living and the ocean, XV stripes captures the essence of laid back luxe for your bedroom and home.
XV stripes was born from a meeting of minds. Founder Izzey Hung nurtured the desire to reflect her love of the ocean and sailing – particularly at Cowes – in her home. When an intensive search failed to inspire her, she decided the time had come to follow her dream. XV stripes was born.
An introduction to designer Vicky Sanders followed and the creative process began.
Izzey & Vicky Sharing the Journey
On an autumn day, Izzey and Vicky share their personal journey of how XV stripes began. Situated at Izzey's favourite beach on the Isle of Wight, and where the XV bedding landscapes are photographed, they talk about how they met and evolved the initial XV range.
Sitting in the back of a pick-up truck having a non-edited conversation, about how it all began. They strongly believe in creating a company that is built on a hands-on approach, creativity, attention to detail, and most of all, fun.
Turning Izzey and Vicky’s ideas into beautiful bed linen and accessories is a team of experts in Portugal, led by Helena and Patricia. Portugal’s reputation for weaving cotton and linen fabrics is second to none. Helena and Patricia take this to another level with their knowledge, experience and passion. Girl power may be the wind in the sails of XV stripes’ success, but we never forget that, from inspiration and ideas to technical advice and production information, the XV team is as colourful, diverse and vibrant as the lifestyle aspirations of our customers.
