Bella Notte Linens Offers a Family-Friendly ApproachAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
When fashion designer and entrepreneur Kathleen McCoy had the idea to start a family-friendly luxury bedding business two decades ago, she couldn’t have known the endeavor would become a legacy. Twenty-two years later, and McCoy is still finding success through the time-consuming, detail-oriented process of garment dyeing pre-cut and sewn bedding, but now she’s got family by her side.
Joining McCoy at the helm of Bella Notte is her daughter, Taylor Batlin, and niece, Lauren Hill. While the two have been involved in the business since childhood, they’ve only recently been named official partners, securing the company’s evolution into the next generation. Batlin comes onboard as the brand director, overseeing all creative assets and brand strategy, while Hill joins as director of strategy and sustainability, highlighting the company’s dedication to eco-friendly and ethical practices.
Bella Notte’s array of high-design, eclectic offerings are all tinged with a romantic flair thanks to velvet trims, lace patterns, and custom embroidery. The company is all about “slow luxury” (think: the antithesis of “fast fashion). The designs are small-batch dyed in a custom color palette for seamless coordination and all pieces are dyed-to-order. McCoy continues to work with the same dye partner she’s collaborated with since the early days of Bella Notte, and while the linens they create are luxurious, they’re all machine washable and get softer with each cycle.
