About Us

The Patersonrose® Story.

Patersonrose (formerly Apples & Pears) was launched in 2003, with the goal to design & create fun, timeless & fashion-focussed bedding for children & teenagers.

Initially concentrating on cotton duvet covers ( doonas ) & sheeting, Patersonrose has grown to expand beyond-the-bed, offering a wide range of co-ordinated accessories that complete the entire look of a child’s bedroom. The PR range now includes rugs, throws, pin-boards, cushions, wall canvases & more.

Our ‘Patersonrose’ philosophy has always been to use only beautiful 100% natural cotton fabrics, all woven to our quality specifications. We design un-themed fabrics (no dolls or dinosaurs) which sing & shout fashion colour & fun. Each collection, designed in New Zealand, has a story; starting with the duvet cover / doona, then expanding from bed to floor to wall.  Each range has the unique ability to mix patterns & accessories to create a truly personal look & feel for your child’s room. There are NO rules!

“We want to provide your child with gorgeous 100% natural cotton bedding + matching accessories, creating a bedroom space that is totally beautiful & unique, & makes you & your child smile each & every day.”

Today :

Patersonrose is celebrating 17 years of design, creation & supply of children’s bedding to homes throughout New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Middle East & around the world.

“Marketers talk about building a business, a brand, a label, but for us there is more; this is our life, our dream and what we truly love to do every day.”

“We hope you enjoy your Patersonrose products as much as we have enjoyed the journey creating them for you.”
