Introducing... Drake General Store Apothecary

Posted by Daniel Okorn, 2 years, 8 months ago

Is it just us, or does finding the perfect bath + body essentials sometimes feel like an overwhelming + ultimately disappointing process?

Products either smell too sweet or too strong, aren’t hydrating enough or are so expensive that you might as well book an appointment with your facialist. Simply put, we weren’t wholly satisfied with the available options. Plus, we really wanted to use something that was homegrown. As a result, our team decided to come together to create a range of Drake General Store apothecary products that met all of our needs. After months of formulating, testing + re-testing, we’re happy to bring you the finished products!

That being said, let’s up the ante + make your pyjama party a bit more grown-up this time around. Where to start? With the most luxurious sleepwear you’ll ever find, naturally. With that in mind, our design team began sourcing premium fabrics – because scratchy polyester just wouldn’t do – and drawing inspiration from classic silhouettes, to create our very own line of Shared Pyjamas.
