About Us


Dan & Maura with our Welsh corgi Cooper

A RURAL LIFE in New England surrounded by natural beauty, art and culture–it's what dreams are made of. For us to live and work in the beautiful Berkshires of western Massachusetts is a dream come true. We founded Needham Lane Ltd. in late 2004–Dan as the salesman and Maura as the designer. We launched our first line of women's cotton pajamas in 2005. Our goal for Needham Lane is to provide the very best quality for an affordable price. We love what we do–and that is providing our customers with ultimate comfort and style.

At the heart of Needham Lane are the exclusive bold and colorful prints use for our apparel, such as our cotton poplin pajamas and seersucker pajamas, and accessories. Refreshing colors and the softest cotton fabrics not only inspire but also soothe the soul. We're about comfortable ease and stylish sensibility. Our look is easy and classic.

Although we began with just cotton pajamasthe selection of products has grown with each season. We now offer our wonderful prints in an array of items including cotton kaftan tunics, scarves, wool shawls, shirts and slippers (featured on the "O" List!). Our mule slippers also make great beach shoes! And everyone can always use a second pair of our comfy cotton poplin pajamas. Our products come with fine tailoring, great personal style and have lasting appeal. We hope you will find something to love when you browse through our website!

Our guiding principle in doing business is to treat others, as we would want to be treated. We want to exceed our customers' expectations and conduct our business with integrity. A good day is when we make a living. A great day is when we hear from a satisfied customer.

Unique designs. High quality. Splendid merchandise. Superior service.
We love what we do.

"I am amazed at the courtesy & kindness & helpfulness from you all. Plus I ordered my 3 gifts yesterday and they arrived in about 24 hours!! Simply amazing! And I thank you all.
I had to call for help and was told exactly how to do what I needed and if that didn't work to call back.
I love your products and will recommend you all to my other friends. But I really just wanted you all to know how amazed I am with Needham Lane!"
