Barbara Cooke, founder and managing director

BC Softwear has a reputation for luxury

Background
BC Softwear supplies luxury bathrobes and spa linen for exclusive hotel and spa clients in the UK, Europe and internationally. Its products are designed for the most discerning customers, where exemplary quality and exceptional performance are the norm. BC Softwear was launched in 2002 by the founder and managing director, Barbara Cooke.

Main products and services
BC Softwear provides expertise in the manufacture of exceptional quality luxury bathrobes, spa linen, and slippers. The company is renowned for its unique understanding of the spa and hotel markets, and has been providing expertise to 5- and 6-star, luxury boutique hotels and spas for more than 15 years. With an enviable reputation for supreme quality towels and robes that stay softer and fluffier for longer, we guarantee clients will receive reliable supply and exceptional customer service.

Additional products
BC Softwear has launched a new 5-Star collection of spa linen, aimed at the most luxurious spas. The range comprises bespoke sized super soft 100 per cent cotton sheets and duvet covers to fit the treatment couch. New ‘SupremeSoft’ jumbo sheets and couch covers provide exceptional luxury and softness. Pure Spa Linen offers your client the sensation of total pampering during their luxury spa treatment. We believe an exceptional treatment begins with the touch of the bathrobe and the smooth feel of the spa linen on your skin. Your luxury spa experience begins with BC Softwear, before the therapist’s hands touch your client’s body.

USPs
BC Softwear’s Spa Linen has an exclusive weave designed to absorb less oil, repel odours and stay fresh for longer. We manufacture exceptionally large-sized spa towels to reduce the number of towels required during a treatment, accelerate the treatment turnaround, reduce drying times and decrease laundry costs. Our bathrobes provide superior luxury with exceptional quality. More importantly, all products are available from stock with next-day delivery.

Where in the world?
The UK and Ireland, Europe, and worldwide as far out as Polynesia and New Zealand.

Top clients
Champneys, Center Parcs Aqua Sana, Hoar Cross Hall, Penny Hill Park, Galgorm Resort and Spa, The Deep Nature Group, Relais Châteaux and many luxury hotels and spas.

Future plans
Products are continuously updated, and new colours are introduced based on customer requirements. Our bathrobes have been extended into multiple sizes in recognition of the importance of the guest’s comfort.

Who’s who?
Barbara Cooke, managing director; Sam Cooke, business development manager south; Karen Tidswell, business development manager north and Ireland.

What the clients say
“BC Softwear has been very helpful in our spa development process. We have been impressed with their ideas, the exceptional quality of the products and the results speak for themselves!”
– Liz Dicker spa director, Sequoia Spa at The Grove, UK
