Our new pure white duvet covers are crafted from premium 500 thread count organic cotton which is delightfully crisp, soft against your skin and woven at such a high density that it will be just as luxurious in years to come as it is today.
All of our new bedding is certified by the Soil Association to GOTS standards (Global Organic Textile Standard) so you know that the least amount of water and no pesticides have been used in its production and the people who pick and process the product are treated well and paid fairly.
We buy direct from source in India, where all of the organic cotton is sustainably grown, with no ‘middleman’ in our chain, so you get the finest and softest organic bed linen at the best value.
The duvet cover fastens with buttons - a small detail with a big story. The buttons are made from seeds of the tagua palm, an Ecuadorian wonder plant known as 'vegetable ivory'. When carved the tagua seed is incredibly strong and hardwearing, but has a beautiful ivory-like finish.
Tagua palms cannot be planted but grow naturally in equatorial rainforests such as those in Ecuador. As each palm can produce as many as 1,800 nuts a year, they enable local people to make a living from the trees - eliminating deforestation in these areas. The tree has such an economic and sustainable status that it’s saving rainforests across Ecuador. This sustainable material is a great alternative to plastic or metal buttons.
Naturally, all our new bedding comes packed in an environmentally friendly way! No plastics are used at all so your sheets and duvet covers are folded in a protective cotton drawstring bag (which can be repurposed as a laundry or shoe bag!) and encased in recycled cardboard boxes.
- Be kind to the environment and wash at a cool temperature on a gentle cycle. When needed, wash at 40 degrees.
