What is organic bedding?
Imagine being able to snuggle up every night in a bed that's wrapped in pure nature. That's exactly the concept behind organic bedding. It is made from sustainable materials that are grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. This environmentally friendly fabric not only provides a healthy sleeping environment, but also a clear conscience.
What bed linen materials are there?
Here we present some of the most popular materials with their advantages and disadvantages. Cotton, linen and hemp are the most popular materials for bed linen, but there are several others. The choice between the materials depends on various factors and is ultimately a personal decision. All fabrics have their own merits and properties that make them suitable for different applications and needs.
Cotton is one of the most commonly used materials for bedding. It is known for its softness, breathability and durability. There are different types of cotton such as Egyptian cotton, Pima cotton or regular cotton. These materials are usually skin-friendly, moisture-absorbent and ideal for year-round wear. However, they can be somewhat susceptible to creasing.
Linen, on the other hand, is a natural, durable fabric made from the fibres of the flax plant. It is known for its strength and high breathability, making it ideal for hot and humid environments. Linen has a cooling effect on the skin and dries quickly, making it well suited for summer. Another advantage of linen is its natural creased look, which gives the fabric a rustic and casual charm. In addition, linen becomes softer with every wash.
Microfibre bedding is made of fine synthetic fibres. It is usually inexpensive and easy to care for. Microfibre is wrinkle resistant and quick drying. It is a good option for allergy sufferers as it collects less dust and dirt particles. However, microfibre is less breathable than natural fibres and can feel slightly less soft to the touch.
Silk is a luxurious and lustrous material prized for its softness and temperature regulation. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and can be particularly beneficial for sensitive skin. It is cooling in summer and warming in winter. However, silk is an expensive option and requires special care as it is more sensitive to stains.
Bamboo bedding is made from bamboo viscose and is an eco-friendly choice. It is known for its softness and breathability. Bamboo bedding is also hypoallergenic and moisture absorbent. It can be comfortable all year round as it is cooling in summer and warming in winter.
What sizes of bed linen are there?
There are countless sizes of fitted sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases on the market. We show you the most common sizes for which you can easily find replacements and suitable duvets.
- Standard size duvet covers: 135x200 cm
- Comfort size duvet covers: 155x220 cm
- Double bed sizes duvet covers: 200x200cm, 240x200cm
- Standard sizes for pillowcases: 80x80cm, 40x80cm
- Standard sizes for fitted sheets: 90x200, 120x200, 140x200, 160x200, 180x200, 200x200cm -> depending on the size of the mattress
Choose the size of the duvet depending on whether you want one duvet per bed or two for a double bed. Ideally, duvets are larger than the mattress, either individually or together.
Organic bed linen by ekomia
At ekomia, we place great value on sustainability and quality. Our organic bed linen is made with great attention to detail and in accordance with strict ecological standards. Discover our high-quality selection of organic bed linen in a variety of materials and find the perfect match for your sleeping comfort.
Organic cotton bed linen
Yume, our premium organic cotton bedding combines luxury, sustainability and well-being. The certified organic cotton is carefully sourced from certified organic farms and offers an incredibly soft and supple feel against your skin. Our organic cotton bed linen is dyed using the garment dye process. This means that only the finished fabric is dyed. This saves resources and gives the fabric an irregular structure that looks like it has been washed out.
Bed linen made from ecological linen and hemp
With Sonhe, our ecological bed linen made from linen and hemp, you get the perfect combination of natural elegance, optimal breathability and durability. Linen and hemp are very similar and combine well. They absorb moisture, are breathable and have antibacterial properties. Both hemp and linen are natural insulators: Both have hollow fibres that keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. We combine hemp with linen because hemp is much more tear-resistant and makes the fabric very durable.
The choice between cotton and linen ultimately depends on your individual preferences, the intended use of the material and the environmental conditions. If you prefer a soft, easy-care material that absorbs moisture well, cotton might be the right choice for you. However, if you're looking for a durable fabric with high breathability and a natural crinkled look, linen might be the right material for you. It's worth trying both fabrics and experiencing their unique properties to find out which one suits you best.
To further enhance your sleep experience, we also recommend you take a look at our natural mattresses. They perfectly complement our organic bedding and offer you a holistic ecological sleep system for restful nights. Click here to see a selection of our natural mattresses: Natural mattresses
