Home is Where Our Heart Is
Meet Saphyr, a new home fashion brand focusing on pure, natural fabrics
At Saphyr, we believe in the importance of a peaceful and comfortable home. We believe home should be a sanctuary, a source of natural comfort, and a place we can rest, recharge, and enjoy time with loved ones.
We created Saphyr because we believe little luxuries at home can make a big difference in comforting and inspiring us each day.
We also believe in the importance of home because we value family. Saphyr is a family effort, founded by Rory O’Mara and her two daughters, Genevieve and Rosemary. Rory (aka “Mom”), the creative and talented mind behind the company, developed the idea for a line of pure linen comfort bedding after spending many years as Director of International Fashion Marketing at Cotton Incorporated, where she travelled the world forecasting color, fabric and fashion trends for the apparel and home fashion industries.
Joining her at Saphyr are her two daughters, Genevieve, who is currently enrolled in the MBA/MA joint degree program at the Wharton School and the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, and Rosemary, who has always had an attention to detail, knack for storytelling, and natural ability to be the glue holding our big family close together. They bring their own unique talents to Saphyr and have grown up inspired by Mom’s love for (and impossibly extensive knowledge of!) natural fabrics.
Considering how much of our time at home is spent in bed, for our introductory line we decided to create a collection of soft washed pure French linen bedding that brings natural comfort and simple luxury into our bedrooms. Pure linen exudes a relaxed elegance that we love. We love its simplicity and the way the charm of its inherent wrinkles give our bedroom a cozy and comfortable mood. We love that it’s a natural fabric that’s good for you and the Earth, and which has been cherished as one of the world’s finest textiles for thousands of years.
But above all, we love sleeping in pure linen because of the way it makes us feel – the way it hugs you when you curl up in bed, how it keeps you cozy and warm in the winter, yet cool and comfortable even on the hottest summer nights.
And linen is just one of many pure, natural fabrics with special characteristics that we adore! Our pursuit is to share with you a collection of beautiful home textiles made from pure, natural fabrics hailing from places around the world with a deep legacy in textile craftsmanship. And along the way, we look forward to celebrating and sharing the stories of the rich heritage of the places they come from and the people that create them. Welcome to Saphyr!
Sleep well and rest easy,
Rory, Genevieve, and Rosemary
