Our story

Hi! My name is Gina and I am the founder of Midnight Leopard.

Midnight Leopard came about combining the two things I love the most – sleep and leopard print.

I am an advocate of supporting small and local businesses which is why it was so important to me to bring a product to market that is produced right here in the UK. Every part of the process that has helped bring Midnight Leopard to life has come from females or female run businesses, so in buying our products you are supporting some absolute boss babes.

As a busy mum of two humans and one pooch, I know how important a decent nights sleep is to help you function the next day, caffeine and wine also help. A lot of us out there struggle to get our full 8 hours a night for whatever reason, but Midnight Leopard products will help you get the best, most restful sleep you can even if its only for a short period (crying babies or middle of the night anxiety anyone!). And you will look stylish and feel like a complete mega star whilst catching some Zzzs.

With the world we live in today, we are all going about our lives at 100 miles an hour so we need products that are multifunctional and get shit done. Our 100% mulberry silk products will not only improve your quality of sleep, but they will also look after you skin (anti ageing), hair and are hypoallergenic.

I started using an eye mask at night after the birth of my second daughter when I suffered from severe dry eyes. This was caused by hormones (isn’t everything?!) and “flicker blinking.” My optician informed me that Flicker Blinking is increasingly becoming an issue for many of us – it essentially means I am not blinking enough or hard enough, which is more than likely as a result of staring at a screen all day long and trying to cram as much information into my tiny little eyeballs in as quickly as possible. Yet another downside of modern technology. The combination of using an eye mask for sleep and night time drops has worked absolute wonders. Which got me thinking, if this is something I need to use for the rest of my life why not create my own!

Skincare is something that I have become more passionate about since I have gotten older and like many of you I will pretty much try anything to help keep my face wrinkle free and looking fresh. I didn’t know until fairly recently that sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can actually increase wrinkles, whereas something as simple as switching to a silk pillowcase can help iron out those creases – I can guarantee our products are much cheaper than Botox. And an added bonus, silk is naturally a hypoallergenic material and will ensure that your hair stays in tip top condition too.

How to care for your silk:

  • Hand wash with cold water
  • Use only PH neutral liquid
  • Hang to dry
  • Iron or steam on low heat
  • Do not bleach or tumble dry
