Housewife pillowcases are just the ticket if you want a simple look to your bedroom. They look unobtrusive while giving you a blissfully smooth surface to rest your weary head on. Less decorative than Oxford pillowcases, the lack of border means housewife pillowcases, also known as plain or standard pillowcases, sit neatly underneath their ornamental counterparts or help create a more minimal bedroom look.

Ever wondered why the housewife pillowcase is so-called? It’s to do with the Housewives Co-operative in Bolton. They invented the flap inside the pillowcase to stop the pillow from falling out., avoiding the need for more fiddly fastenings. Clever thinking, wouldn’t you say?

Like the practical simplicity of a housewife pillowcase? You’ll find a range of housewife pillowcases in a range of fabrics and designs, from indulgent Mulberry Silk to luxurious Egyptian Cotton.
