- Our Story
Our Back- Story
It all started in 2004 with a problem – sleepless nights. The need for a snugly garment to keep my 3 year old daughter, Lilly, warm so that we could all sleep through the night. The problem was that I needed something that wasn’t available anywhere on the High Street or online… A Sleeper.
But not just a Sleeper, I needed a garment where I could specify the size and choose the features, I didn’t want a hood or feet for Lilly. I wanted to be the designer and create the Sleeper that I wish existed. I wanted to be able to choose the fabric thickness no matter what time of year it was.
So this is what I created. A website where you can Create-your-Own Sleeper in the size that you need whether it was for a baby, a child or an adult. In the fabric type and color or pattern combination that is unique to you, with the ability to add the finishing touches by customizing and personalizing to make it yours.
Each Sleeper is unique, just as you are and that’s whats so special about The All-in-One Company, you become the designer, whatever your age or your size. We then hand make your order especially for you here in Northumberland, England UK.
We now offer you the most detailed 3D Sleeper builder in the world enabling you to create the Sleeper you wish existed.
Why we do what we do
We love the personal touch of creating something especially for you. The Sleeper that you design means something to all of us as we have an emotional connection to it. When something has been designed by you and is handmade by us, there is something very special about that whole process. Since we began in 2008 we have always made to order. We wanted to change how people bought clothes. We only make what you ask for, which keeps waste to a minimum. We don’t have clearance sales to off load stock, as there is no excess created.
For the community
Our off cuts are made into Sleepers for baby banks and women’s refuge centres. The smaller pieces are donated to charities, schools and colleges for fundraising activities.
We have donated the Sleepers that have been used for photo shoots to baby banks and women’s refuge centres too with an aim of bringing warmth, fun and happiness to everyone who wears our Sleepers.
The end of roll fleeces have been made into random size blankets that are given to charities such as Making Winter Warmer For Those Without.
5% of each Sensory Sleeper sold is donated to The National Autistic Society as a thank you for helping us to create the sensory Sleeper in 2017.
