About Household Linens


HouseHold Linens is a New Zealand owned business that began in the Auckland home of Avis Nelson over 45 years ago.  Starting in manufacturing, moving to wholesale and progressing to retail it has become a truly vertical organisation.

HouseHold Linens creates and designs its products in Auckland and  imports from around the globe. Three brands - Pan Cottage, HouseHold Linens and A.N.D differentiate the product available. Each brand encompasses different fabrics, qualities and styles. Through innovative and inspiring design, engaging store experiences and by communicating with people in a way that connects to how they live, work and play, our brands are constantly evolving to meet our customers' needs.

The HouseHold Linens and Pan Cottage brands are strongly loyal to cotton. There is barely a moment in every day when cotton doesn’t touch our lives, much as it has for generations of families. Its unique qualities and ability to breathe have been understood for over four millennia as cotton has woven itself into the fabric of virtually every society on every continent. And its future is as colourful as its history ... there is no limit beyond imagination to the fantastic range of patterns, designs, fabrics and weaves that continue to express our love of cotton.

Our fantastic team of people enables us to bring you the finest design and fabric that the world has to offer. HouseHold Linens now has 4 stores in New Zealand.

Having been in the bed linen business for over 45 years and providing solutions to homes and businesses, HouseHold Linens has established itself as a clear market leader with a reputation for design and service excellence.
