Linen supplier Richard Haworth has created an 'open top' valance which is designed to save time and money for hotels and B&Bs.

The EasyValance is available with elastic or Velcro fasteners which either wrap around the bed base or fasten to a section of material placed on top of the divan.

Neither version has the usual central piece of fabric, meaning the valance can be changed without having to remove the mattress, topper and pillows first.

Raj Ruia, managing director at Richard Haworth, said: “We’re constantly looking to pioneer new products to save hotels and B&Bs time and money. The EasyValance is the result of many months of development and testing and we’re confident that hotels and B&Bs alike will benefit from its unique design.”

UK-based Richard Haworth has been a supplier of linens, including bed linen, towels and table cloths, to the industry for 30 years. It has made EasyValance available in 33 different colours, enabling hoteliers to choose a coloure to match their colour scheme.
