Organic Linen Bedding - White

Organic Linen Bedding - White

from 30.00

Our GOTS-certified 100% organic linen bedding is made of flax grown organically in France and woven into bed linen in Portugal. Linen is a beautiful fabric with a unique texture created by the slubbiness of its threads. This gives it a slightly crumpled look that is both elegant and down to earth (and also means that it doesn’t need ironing). Linen tends to get softer with use, and ours has been through a special process using enzymes that makes it particularly soft and prevents it from shrinking. Linen is highly absorbent and conducts heat away from the skin, so it is the perfect bedding fabric for the summer months.

Ecosophy is the first brand in the UK to offer linen bedding that is certified organic. Linen is often marketed as a sustainable fibre as its cultivation requires little-to-no irrigation and fewer chemicals than cotton. However, fewer chemicals does not mean none, and linen is usually grown using some fungicides, herbicides and chemical fertiliser. In contrast to regular linen, organic linen has been grown with no chemicals and in rotation with other crops, creating a more diverse and consequently more wildlife-friendly farm.

Organic linen accounts for only 1% of global linen production and is grown by a handful of pioneering farms in France. We visited some of these farms in 2018, and are proud to now be working with them. You can read about our visit to them here.
