You know you’ve reached adulthood when you’re considering trading in your H&M home bedding for some swanky sustainably-sourced cotton sheets.
And actually, if you’re able to spend that extra bit more on eco-conscious bedsheets, you’ll quickly realise that the investment is very much worth it.
We spend a LOT of time in bed— so if money is the issue, try and work out your price-per-use and you’ll quickly come to realise that you’re actually getting a pretty good deal.
Plus, the textile industry traditionally uses some of the most polluting (and unethical) trade and labor practices, so you’ll sleep better knowing that your sheets have caused no harm to people or the planet.
So, if you’re in the market for some seriously luxe bed linen, here are a few brands we think you’ll love…
If you want to support a business that’s seriously doing its part: Rise and Fall is the one for you. Their luxury bed linen is produced in factories that run entirely on wind energy. They also recycle 99% of the water used, their packaging is plastic-free and they offer free education to their predominantly female workforce.
Traceable ‘from seed to stitch’ is Ecosophy’s mantra: with every stage of their supply chain approached mindfully. They create textiles for the home (including gorgeous bedding) using organic and sustainable materials.
Dip and Doze’s use the finest, hand-picked, Organic and Fairtrade certified cotton that can be traced back to the very farm it was grown on. They even use natural coconut buttons on their duvet covers!
If you’re based in the US, SOL Organics is a great company that stands for ‘sustainable organic living’. The gorgeous and simple sateen products are Fair Trade Certified and made with 100 percent organic cotton.
