Our Story

It’s time to shed the day and be in the here and now – surrounded by the people you love, the critters you cherish and the things that make you feel best.

CaliforniaTop to Bottom

Since our humble beginnings in Berkeley in 1998 we have offered stylish, fun, consciously crafted, deliciously indulgent sleepwear. Now from our current operations in sunny Santa Monica near Bergamot Station, we maintain our heritage but offer new patterns, stylish cuts and beautiful fabrics like our 100% cotton Luxe Pima and our Pima Knit, which is a blend of Pima Cotton, Modal and elastane. The Cat's family is a husband and wife team supported by devoted employees. Feel free to call us - we're always happy to hear from you.  Find us online and at fine stores and boutiques around the country.

Carefully Crafted

We maintain our heritage of making pajamas in California but, with our growth, we have expanded to Peru as well. We chose Peru because of the beautiful Pima cotton that is hand-picked in the Andes Mountains. This long-threaded fibre has vibrance and strength that makes it special. We also appreciate that the garments are grown, woven and sewn all in Peru, minimizing our carbon footprint. And the workers in Lima are treated fairly and operate in clean, attractive conditions. (If you haven't been to Lima -- it's a foodie's dream). We are proud to be a part of a creative community that’s making well-designed, well-made things that people feel good about using.  

Does Loungewear Have to be Frumpy or Super Serious?

No way. When you shed those outside clothes we know you want to slip into soft, comforting clothes that lift you up – even if you’re just lying around.

You, your sister, your roommate, your best friend, the love of your life – you all deserve this. Enjoy your treasures and thank you kindly.

Customer Stories

For the Betterment of Pajamas Everywhere

I have two pairs of "The Cat's Pajamas", one pair I call "Puppy Party Pjs" and the other I call my "Bee P's".  These are damn near the best pajamas on Earth.  I never thought I would spend this much on sleepwear, but I can't deny my new love for getting dressed up to go to bed.  Thank you for creating such a magical, cozy, durable, eccentric little brand of pajamas.  They make me smile!

Amazing Quality; Super Fast Shipping!

This was my first ever purchase from the Cat’s Pajamas. My sister always had impeccable PJ style, which I got to know even better recently during FaceTime calls. When I asked her for a recommendation, she didn’t hesitate to say the Cat’s Pajamas. I received my first order. It shipped so quickly and all the details are perfect: the fit, the fabric, and the stitching. I will definitely order again!


Love, love, love The Cat's Pajamas

Twenty years ago my sister-in-law gave me my first ever pair of Cat's Pajamas. I loved them and I've owned no other pajamas since. They are comfortable, well-made, attractive, durable and the customer service is excellent. The pajamas are completely and totally worth the money. Thank you Cat's Pajamas for being a beacon of quality is a sea of sub-standard!


Top quality, design and ultra cozy sleepwear!

Been shopping here for decades from across three continents! Still one of the best quality pyjamas and other sleepwear ranges around (best pj's for sushi lovers I've ever come across). Their patented designs, ultra soft and durable fabric have yet to be matched!

Best pajamas I've ever had

These are the best pajamas I've ever had and I'll probably never purchase a different brand again. I ordered a night dress and short sleeve pajama set and I love them both! The fabric is so soft and light, perfect for me since I don't like to feel too warm in bed. Also the fabric has stretch so there is no tugging when I turn over in bed. Both pajamas are so pretty too, and they're practical. One has pockets in the the shirt and two pockets in the pants. The night dress is just beautiful and pure joy to sleep in and hang out in. The quality of the sewing and the design are tops. I feel the value I've received is worth the high cost I paid.


Quality is top notch

I was so thrilled with my first order that I donated all my other pajamas and I ordered more right away. Shipping is quick and free. Quality is top notch and the designs are fabulous.

Worth paying a little bit extra

Sometimes it's worth paying a little bit extra for unique, well-made, 'feel  good' pyjamas. Love the fabrics, love the quality, love the service. Feel loved :-)


Big fan of The Cat's Pajamas

I am a big fan of The Cat's Pajamas - actually an addict. I currently have eight pair in winter summer and winter styles, and buy flannels for Christmas presents every year for my family. The flannels are perfect for cuddling up by the fire on cold winter nights here in Vermont. What I love best are the choices of beautiful and unique fabric patterns, and colors and the fact they are made in the U.S. The friendly and efficient customer service from The Cat's Pajamas staff has been outstanding. Their service keeps me coming back - especially when it comes to the holidays and gift giving.

I love this brand!

I've been a fan of this company for many years now. The quality of the fabric and craftsmanship is superior. I bought my flannel PJ's over ten years ago and they are still in excellent condition. Another plus is their whimsical fabric prints; my personal favorites are: Frida Kahlo, sushi, and anything with puppies/dogs.
