We all know the value of a good night’s rest, and we all know the role a good set of sheets plays in that. Decorative pillows and throws aside, nothing sets you up for sweet dreams like the pillowcases and sheets that provide your foundation for sleep. So when we set out to create our dream bedding, we settled on two of the most timeless materials: Cotton and linen.
So which is the right choice for you? Good news: There isn’t a right or wrong answer, necessarily. It’s all a matter of taste.
Classic, crisp, clean. There’s a reason cotton and bedding are practically synonymous. Think of cotton sheets as a timeless option you can never go wrong with. They’re smooth, absorbent, and keep you cozy year-round (read: perfect for us cold sleepers). And because cotton as a crop is widely available, cotton bedding typically comes with a friendlier price point.
Our Signature Cotton Bedding is loomed with organic, long-staple cotton from the Aegean Region of Turkey, and each piece is Oeko-Tex® and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified. So while they do have a luxurious 400 thread count, it’s really the quality of the cotton fiber that makes our bedding so soft.
Our cotton bedding is buttery smooth and soft, but also features a beautiful drape that gets better with every wash. So, in essence, if you’re wanting a classic look and smooth drape, cotton may be the best choice for you.
We fell in love with our linen bedding at first sight, on a visit to the oldest family-run linen mill in Portugal — where they’ve been using the highest quality materials and techniques for almost a century. Our Stonewashed Linen Bedding is made from French flax and is Oeko-Tex® certified, so the quality is practically unmatched. But what we love the most is the supreme softness of the stonewashed linen only gets softer over time (as in, every time you wash it).
So why linen? For one, the hollow structure of the flax fibers means it’s highly breathable — ideal for hot sleepers. This also means it’s moisture wicking and temperature regulating, making linen bedding great in both the cold and hotter months. With proper care, linen is highly durable and made to last for years to come.
As for the overall appeal, linen offers a relaxed look with its signature, organic drape and textured hand-feel. Our linen bedding looks as soft as it feels, too — creating a bed that just begs to be crawled into.
