Conscious Luxury

Linens without compromise

Luxury goes beyond design. We responsibly source the finest quality materials from all over the world, applying low impact dyes and finishes. By creating consciously made home textiles, we are stewards of the planet, the people who make our product, and the families who sleep in them.

Artisan Crafted

Handcrafted in California

We are among a niche community of makers always dedicated to local, small batch, manufacturing in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each of our pieces is exquisitely crafted by the hands of master sewers, and garment dyed to order in an artisanal dye house with our harmonious, hand-mixed color palette. Every Bella Notte product is one-of-a-kind—tonal variation is the natural beauty of our unique dye process. 

Easy Living

Livable, washable luxury

All our couture textiles are washable at home (even our silks and velvets). Unlike other luxury brands, you can forgo the hassle and harsh chemicals of dry cleaning. Meant to be lived in by everyone in the family, our linens become softer with every use. Together we can give our heirloom linens a good life.

Design Director

Leeta Steenwyk

Leeta has been a maker with Bella Notte since 2013 as a Design Director.

"Creativity is my most marked characteristic. I walk through the world with senses wide open, soaking in the colors, textures and patterns...My mind is constantly constructing art, creating patterns or thinking of song lyrics. My real gift though is making something out of nothing for dinner."

"My greatest success is that I am so richly satisfied with my life. I love my job and am grateful to live in a beautiful part of the country surrounded by nature with a vibrant, inspiring creative community. Sometimes I look at my life through the eyes of my 20 year old self and think she'd be happy to see how it all worked out."

Meet the Makers

Chief Operations Officer

Melissa Linn joined our team of makers in 2015.

"Who I admire most is my grandmother. She was born in 1905, university educated, socialite, wife, mother and all around an amazing woman. One of my favorite pieces of advise she gave was 'You can never be overdressed, you can be underdressed'."

"My most marked characteristic is my ability to learn almost anything if I put my mind to it."

Merchandising and Marketing Manager

Heather Asker has been a maker since 2012.

"Aside from being a mother, my greatest achievement is being the first in my immediate family to earn 2 college degrees."

"My most marked characteristic is that I love to have fun — after all I have been dubbed Bella's Mistress of Games! I balance hard-work with a free spirited approach to life through surfing and roller skating. I love to tell (bad) jokes and I'm known for office shenanigans."
