Let's face it, finding the perfect bedfellow can be a little bit... complicated 🙃

Since there's no Tinder to match us with our dream bedding, we've broken down the perks to help you find 😘

Cotton

Organic cotton is a little bit magic 🔮

  • It loves the planet as much as you love your home 🌏
  • It’s grown without the use of toxic pesticides to help protect the environment
  • It keeps you cool at night by providing plenty of breathing room
  • The benefits? You’ll sleep better at night knowing that what you’re putting against your skin hasn’t cost the earth
  • A match for: The eco-warrior those who run a little hot at night
  • Try our Sofi Organic Cotton Bedding 

Egyptian cotton

  • The king – and queen – of cottons 👑
  • Egyptian cotton has extra-long fibres, meaning they create stronger and more durable fibres
  • The benefits? Since they have fewer fibre ends poking out of the fabric’s surface, they’re also softer against your skin (see diagram).
  • A match for: those who love to be spoiled like a royal.
  • Try our Egyptian Royale Bedding 

Cotton Percale 

  • It's a criss-cross weave with one thread over, one thread under (see diagram)
  • The benefits? It's durable and will keep you cool in summer and comfy through the winter nights
  • A match for: those who like a bit of texture, run a bit hot, and need plenty of breathing room
  • Try our Vintage Softwash Bedding
