Duvet days: 15 organic bedding companies to tuck up with in 2019

Living
5 minute guide

Yes, we know, there's lots going on in your life so is bedding that important? 

Well, even without lazy long weekends between the sheets, we spend a third of our lives in bed, so doesn’t it make sense to have the stuff that’s next to our skin - the duvets, sheets and pillowcases - as organic and chemical free as possible?

These organic bedding brands have set themselves a challenge to change our sheets not just for own comfort, but through using organic and Fairtrade sourced materials, to make the standard of living better for others.

15 organic bedding brands to tuck up with

Lily & Mortimer

Lily & Mortimer is a luxurious homewares brand that focuses on ethically sourced, 100% organic and Fairtrade bedding. Founder, Jayne Harvey sums up why choosing organic matters when it comes to getting a good night's sleep: "We spend 30% of our life in direct contact with our bedding so it was critical to us that we source the strongest, yet naturally soft raw materials.  

Conventional cotton occupies 3% of the world's farmland yet uses over 25% of the world's pesticides. It is also treated with products such as formaldehyde to preserve the material. We believe in sourcing the highest quality raw materials so we can help you create a natural sleep environment for your whole family."

Her ethical bedding range at Lily & Mortimer includes 300 thread count organic sheets that come in two designs and three colourways -  Stargazer - a modern take on the classic pleat and Dreamers – that brings a pop of colour to any bedroom scheme. Each ranges from Single to Super King Size. Lily & Mortimer also has two styles of nursery fitted sheets in crib to cot bed size, with cute elephant and butterfly prints.

"I believe investing in your sleep is one of the most powerful selfcare actions we can take, the benefits of quality sleep are well documented and many of our customers tell me they sleep so well in our bedding they can't sleep in anything else," says Harvey.

Get free shipping on Lily & Mortimer until the end of January - just use the code 'Pebble' at checkout.

Ecosophy

For ethical bedding, Ecosophy certainly tick the box. New in this January is their environmentally friendly, organic cotton jersey bedding. It's that made from ethically sourced, organic cotton fibres that are grown in Turkey and then knitted rather than woven, which gives them a T-shirt like softness, that is warmer than percale or sateen. The melange yarns have a marl effect that’s simply sumptuous to snuggle down in. Definitely one for a warmer winter.

Urban Collective

A cosy bed doesn’t just need an organic duvet though, we’re a sucker for a pretty bedspread (which can be hauled onto the sofa for movie nights). Urban Collective have a range of patterned and colourful organic cotton duvet sets but we love this dusky pink organic cotton bedspread. It’s made of from GOTS certified material and comes with a textured pattern (and in four other colours if dusky pink isn’t for you).

Nour Luxury

What really constitutes luxury sheets, asks Nour Luxury. Are really expensive sheets worth so much more? Put off by the huge chemical consumption in mainstream cotton production, Nour Luxury’s founders decided to create a brand where every piece of organic and Fairtrade cotton could be traced back to farms and factories where people are treated properly.

Nour Luxury also uses Chetna Organic in India, which has a 100% transparent supply chain - even the buttons can be certified organic. Nour Luxury’s range includes fitted and flat sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases which comes in three colours, white, pewter and natural. Each duvet set gives back a percentage to Penny Appeal's Thirst Relief project which builds water wells in nine countries.

Ara Living

This London based brand believes that luxury bedding shouldn't cost the earth, financially or metaphorically. It aims to reinvent the bedding market by getting people to think about the cost to the environment when they buy new sheets. 

Ara Living's 100% organic bedding is Fairtrade certified and its factories use renewable energy to reduce waste (and use 90% less water during production). There's a transparent supply chain and a percentage of the profits go to Hope For Justice, which fights against modern day slavery. 

But best of all, these are hotel quality, organic sheets and duvet sets that won't make you feel guilty for staying in bed all day.

Ettitude

Aussie brand Ettitude are changing up bedtime. We've slept in sheets since the Ancient Egyptians, but hardly anything has changed. Until now. Ettitude make gorgeous duvet sets, pillowcases and sheets from organic bamboo lyocell, a sustainable soft fabric that can use less resources than traditionally produced cotton. The organic bedding is made with high eco-standards, using a closed-loop system that recycles and reuses water to minimise waste. And the results are super soft and full of different colours that both guys and girls will love.
