BAYITH is a boutique textile collection made for your big day & everyday
BAYITH was born in early 2016 in the kitchen of a Brooklyn, New York city apartment. Since the beginning, the emphasis has been on thoughtful design details and sustainable sourcing. Each piece is inspired by timeless aesthetics, natural elements, and the celebration of gathering together for events big and small. It’s no coincidence that BAYITH means “of the home (and community)” in Hebrew.
Years ago, founder and designer Catherine Schiff shifted her focus from fashion to table textiles because she loved the sense of community involved in dinner parties. Catherine thrives on seeing textiles used in everyday moments and grand gatherings. She’s also a coffee snob, has serious puppy envy, and is currently growing a plant-filled jungle in her studio.

on growing sustainably
We not only love to talk about growing a sustainable business, but we also try to walk the walk. We start by using seed paper and recycled paper in our packaging, hiring local NY seamstresses, expanding our offering to rentals, and we're always looking for ways to improve our footprint. For 2018, we are aiming to donate 10% of our profits to an organization focused on clean ocean causes. Let us know if there’s an organization in this field you really admire.
“Bayith was the perfect choice for my client’s wedding. We were looking for something unique and she exceeded my expectations in every way. Catherine's knowledge of fabric and her eye for detail helped to expedite the process when we were short on time while simultaneously listening with great intent in order to deliver something accurate to my vision as a designer...I would highly recommend Bayith to anyone who wants custom linens that are sustainably sourced and expertly executed."

“Working with BAYITH for a set of custom napkins was easier than I could've imagined. The process was super fun and the designer really took the time to personalize them to the perfect color, texture and font! I loved that I was able to see and feel some great options to choose from and was really impressed with the final pieces! The quality of the napkins and embroidery is beautiful . My brother and sister-in-law loved their gift and I hope they will hang onto these as heirloom pieces for a long time to come."
- Alisa Langbord, Owner of Rosewood Floral Co
"We had the pleasure of working with Catherine from Bayith recently in designing a large order of custom linen dinner napkins and tablecloths for our events. We just received our order and the quality is impeccable. Exactly what we were hoping for! Not only were able to rely on their expertise and flawless design knowledge but everything was delivered on time and packaged beautifully. We can not wait to start using our linens and absolutely recommend Bayith for anyone in search of high quality sustainable linens."
