You drink organic coffee in the morning and make sure to fuel your body with pesticide-free produce during the day – but what happens when you lay your head down at night? Shouldn’t the bedding that envelops you for five to nine hours a day follow the same kinds of health and ethical standards you set for other aspects of your life? Nowadays, there are lots of options for organic bedding free of chemicals and synthetic fertilizers that also happen to be stylish and on-trend. Read on for some of our top picks!
Fun Prints and Colorful Patterns
Many people picture hempy colors and bland textures when they think of organic cotton, but Pottery Barn’s selection of organic bedding in designer patterns is proof that this couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, we gravitated towards their breezy palm and nautical navy rope designs before we even noticed that they were made of Oeko-Tex® certified organic cotton.
West Elm also makes an array of GOTS-certified organic cotton sheets and shams in fun prints and textures like an energetic Ikat and a billowy pintuck. The patterns can be purchased as a set, but we think it’s a lot more fun to mix and match!
Eileen Fisher is known for her sophisticated eco-fashion line, but did you know that she also designs home goods? Her super-soft stone-washed organic coverlets and shams are made in Portugal and act as timeless neutrals for your bedroom with an interesting hint of texture.
The Company Store’s luxurious 180-thread count organic shams, duvet covers and sheets place just as much emphasis on comfort as they do on the quality of the organic cotton percale they’re made of. In addition to meeting Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), they’re available in a bevy of soothing prints.
If you want to avoid waste by keeping your current mattress, upgrading with an organic mattress topper is a cost-effective way to increase your comfort and add a touch of luxury without breaking the bank. White Lotus Home‘s plush toppers are made with wool and latex, and wrapped in a sumptuous 100% USDA Certified Organic Cotton sateen casing.
Have you heard about lamb “down” pillows and comforters as an alternative to fowl feathers, which are often harvested in a way that is harmful to ducks and geese? Holy Lamb Organics produces its eco-wool comforters, pillows and other bedding in the USA using exclusively organic cotton fabric and domestic wool local to the Pacific Northwest without the use of dyes, chemicals or synthetic fillers.
If you’re happy with your existing bedding and just want to accent it with a few throw pillows, Live Good’s 100% Certified organic line is a great option that also supports California artisans and local agriculture. Plus, you can feel good knowing that all of their goods are devoid of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and irradiation.
Coyuchi has made a name for itself as a go-to resource for sheets, pillows, pillowcases, throws, towels and duvet covers made of 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. Although their collections emphasize natural colors and textures, they’re anything but boring and incorporate fun touches like coconut shell buttons and diamond-weave accents.
