All of the fabric we use is GOTS certified organic cotton, which means it is the gold standard of cotton, with no chemical treatment. Our partners in India are OEKO-Tex certified, partnered with the Better Cotton Initiative and Fair Trade certified, ensuring fair work conditions and pay for the farmers and workers during the production phase.
Regular, good quality sleep is essential for our brain function, emotional and physical wellbeing and daytime performance. For me, a good nights sleep starts with the bed and the quality and feel of the bed linen. I wanted to source the absolute best in fabric for my families beds. Each product in our range is made from 200TC Organic Cotton, with a Percale weave, which is crisp and matte to touch, but gets softer and softer over time. Percale cotton is more durable which means that our sheets and duvets will stand the test of time.
Percale Cotton is a tightly woven, ‘regular’ plain weave. To qualify as percale, the thread count must be at least 180. In many instances the higher the thread count, the better quality the sheet. However, with percale sheets this is not the case as higher thread counts will leave you with an extremely stiff sheet that doesn’t soften.
Percale sheets are breathable which will ensure you have a cool and dry nights sleep. A cool environment equals a better nights sleep. On a warm night it is important to keep cool, which means percale cotton is ideal in the warmer months, but also in the winter months when you have the heating on.
The tight weave of percale also helps keep dust mites from intruding. Dust mites are the most common triggers of allergies globally. Because of our humid climate and damp houses, New Zealand has a bigger problem with dust mites than many other countries. People who suffer from allergies will be more protected when sleeping in our organic cotton sheets.
Percale sheets start off by feeling reasonably crisp to touch. The beauty of percale is that with every wash, it gets softer and softer. So over time, with more and more wear and washing, percale just keeps getting better. Our fabrics are yarn dyed, where possible. This ensures that they will hold their colour better after many washes.
These bedroom staples have been created with longevity in mind. Buy quality and buy it once. The designs are simple but enduring. The durability, softness and benefits of percale has been the driving force behind sourcing this high quality fabric. Along with creating a smaller footprint on the environment.
A healthier nights sleep is what every parent wants for their family. All of our fabrics are GOTS certified, which is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres. This means that no toxic chemicals have been used in the growing of our organic cotton, there has been less impact on the air and soil and the production of our cotton uses approximately 70% less water and 62% less energy.
Sustainability, ensuring a healthier environment and looking after the people in every phase of production are also key drivers for our brand.
The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global not-for-profit organisation and the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Our suppliers are partnered with the Better Cotton Initiative which gives us confidence that we are supplying you the most sustainable product we can.
Looking after the people who produce our products is not negotiable. Our suppliers also have Fair Trade Certification, so you can be sure our range has been made according to rigorous social, environmental and economic standards. The people making Fair Trade certified goods work in safe conditions, protect the environment, build sustainable livelihoods and get paid more money to empower their own livelihoods and communities.
