Mediterranean Duvet
(Indigo)

 

Mediteranean Alpine White
(alpine white)

 

Our duvet cover’s soft, dimensional texture was inspired by a traditional toweling fabric in Greece, Italy and Turkey that we think is fantastic for bedding, too. The highs and lows of the dobby weave act as air pockets, providing great breathability and a cozy feel without heavy weight. The collection is made from organic cotton at a factory that recycles 98% of its waste-water. Self-backed and finished with a simple knife-edge, an 8" interior flap and coconut shell buttons. Inside ties. 100% organic cotton is grown and woven in India.

Additional Information
  • The cotton is grown organic and processed in India. It is certified by Control Union Certifiers of the Netherlands, GOTS and ECOCERT of France. Fair trade certified every step of the way by FLO-CERT of Germany and ECOCERT of France.
Types of Fabrics
  • Damask: Damask is a glossy Jacquard fabric. It is typically made from cotton, linen, rayon, silk or blends (ours is all cotton). The weave is very flat and the patterns are smooth and reversible. We like to say there is no right side or wrong side to this beautiful fabric.
     

  • Flannel: A soft, medium weight plain weave fabric made of cotton with a napped finish. The raised surface provides a fluffy appearance and super soft, cozy feel. Great for warmth during the winter months.
     

  • Jacquard: Jacquard is a fabric that is woven by using a jacquard attachment on the loom. The jacquard attachment allows the weaver to control each of the warp yarns, which can result in an endless variety of patterns. This is the weave of kings and queens.
     

  • Jersey: A plain stitch knitted cloth. The fabric is knitted on circular, flatbed or warp knitted methods. Very elastic with good draping qualities. Think of your favorite T-shirt.
     

  • Percale: A closely woven, plain weave, spun fabric made from both carded and combed yarns. Percale sheeting is the finest sheeting available. Percale equals quality linens.
     

  • Sateen: A weave construction that has more yarn surface on the face of the cloth than other basic weaves giving a softer hand and more lustrous look.

 

Other Fabric Terms
 
  • Determining Fabric Quality: The cotton plant, the cotton yarn and the weaving process are all essential to the quality of a woven fabric. Ourbed and bath products are made from 100% certified organic fair trade cotton. Certified organic cotton is produced without the use of any agricultural chemicals. The cotton is grown "by hand" on family farms in India. So we start with the right seeds, the right growing and harvesting conditions and the right griege. Then great care is taken in the finishing of these fabrics too. Finishing is the final process in the production of fabrics and it is a hard one to master. Finishing changes the appearance of the fabric, its hand and the performance of the griege fabric (the natural, raw state of the fabric). The finishing process also adds luster, softness and quality to the fabric. The first step in finishing involves washing the fabric with an amylase enzyme, which adds softness and eliminates pilling, and a cationic softener, which gives it a supple, luxurious hand. The softener is type-allergenic and approved by both OTA in the US and SKAL, our certifier in India. Next comes sanforizing, a mechanical process that helps reduces shrinkage. Finally, fabric is run through a calendaring process, a sort of gigantic iron, which flattens and polishes it using high heat and tremendous pressure.
     
  • Flax: Linen is a type of fiber that comes from the same plant that flax seed comes from. Linen is a vegetable fiber obtained from the inside of the woody stalk of the flax plant.
     
  • Griege: There is so much that goes into making fabrics of high quality. It starts with griege, the natural, raw state of the fabric, which is a natural beige color.
     
  • Thread Count: Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads are in one square inch of woven fabric. There is no intrinsic value to a higher thread count number, despite popular belief. Instead, the hand of the fabric depends on the integrity of the fibers used, the weave selected, and the quality of the finished product. Thread count is but one element in determining how a finished piece of fabric will feel. Knowing us humans, we love numbers and quick, easy ways of quantifying value, so this little fact still plays a large role (too large in our opinion) in determining fabric quality.
     
  • Types of Dyes: There are two kinds of dyes - pigment and reactive dyes. Pigment dyeing is the process by which color is held onto the surface of the fabric by a binding agent. Reactive dyeing is the formulation of a chemical bond between the cotton fibers and the color. We use low-impact, fiber-reactive dyeing in all our sheets. When dyes are used in our sheets, the dyes used are very safe, environmentally certified, and "low impact" which means the chemical bonding and absorption rate are so high we use less water, less heat, and produce less waste-water runoff than chemical dyeing processes use. Recent advances have created fiber-reactive dyes with colors that are brighter and richer than previously available, and they provide excellent colorfast properties on cotton. They contain no heavy metals or other known toxic substances, and they meet all European Union criteria for being an eco-friendly pigment. But, the actual dyes in almost all low-impact fiber-reactive dyes are still petrochemical based. Fiber-reactive dyes have become the dye choice for many organic clothing manufacturers who want to be able to offer a diverse palette of vibrant colors. Depending upon the nature and degree of their chemical sensitivities, people with mild chemical sensitivities can often wear organic clothing with fiber-reactive dyes. Un-dyed, natural color or color-grown fabrics are the best choice for people who react to fiber-reactive dyes or who want only 100% natural, virgin fabrics on their skin.
     
  • Types of Weaves: All woven fabrics use 3 basic weaves: plain, twill, and satin. The plain weave is the simplest with an over, under, over, under structure. Percale is an example of a plain weave. The twill weave is characterized by its diagonal lines across the fabric.. The satin weave is formed by a series of floating yarns tied down intermittently in the weave. This provides different patterns and a sleek, shiny surface. Our sateen sheets are a good example of the satin weave. All other weaves are combinations of these basic weaves and are classified as complex (or novelty) weaves.
     
  • Warp & Weft: Woven fabrics interlace a warp yarn, a yarn which runs the length of the fabric, and weft yarns, which run the width of the fabric.
     
Care Instructions
  • Please do not wash these sheets and pillow cases with other items that have a high lint content, such as towels, etc. Also, make sure to check your pockets for paper before washing clothing with your sheets.
     
  • All of our sheets are machine washable. We recommend using warm water, non-phosphate soap in the washing cycle, and a cool, tumble dry in a dryer. The best way to dry, in our opinion, is to hang dry on a clothesline outside and bring the magic of the outside back in. The use of bleaching agents may diminish the brilliance and depth of the colors, so we recommend not using any whiteners. But if you must, please use a non-chlorine bleach.
