Design Inspired by the California Coast

Cayla Zelanis

Since 1991, Coyuchi has been drawing inspiration from the coastlines of California, crafting the finest organic linens for a clean, environmentally conscious home. The way we feel in our spaces affects our overall well-being as we move through the world. That’s why our skilled in-house design team is driven to create one-of-a-kind pieces with a rich history. Your unique connection to the natural world around you and within you can be articulated by how you put different colors and patterns together in your home.

Our designs explore colors, textures, and patterns found in nature, and are made using only natural, organic fibers—a practice inspired by the concept of biophilic design, which seeks to connect our inside spaces with the healing properties of nature. Each piece is thoughtfully designed to evolve alongside future collections, so that every Coyuchi item fits in with the home you’ve built. For your home today, and for generations to come. 

Each piece is a fresh breath of salty sea air, pulling subtle colors, nuanced textures, and earthy patterns from the Pacific Ocean and its shores. The relaxed luxury of California’s coastlines informs our aesthetic at every turn, embracing the beachy tones and calming energy of those peaceful places where water meets land. Whether it’s the changing colors of the horizon throughout the day, or the ebb and flow of water against beaches both sandy and rugged, each design has its own coastal story to tell. 

Coastal fog, sandy shores, and rocky bluffs translate into the textural trails of dobby woven stripes that dot our Lost Coast Organic Duvet Cover—an ode to the beauty of one of California’s most beautiful natural landmarks. Each color captures the rugged terrain of the Pacific and its crashing waves, with deep ocean tones and crisp whitecaps. Add the finishing touch to any space with our Topanga Blanket, inspired by the waves and breaks along the California coastline. 

Our awe for California’s coastlines drives us to capture its beauty, but, most importantly, to do everything we can to help preserve it. It’s why we continue to push the organic textile space forward, searching for the highest standards of sustainability and social responsibility—whether it's our groundbreaking circularity initiatives and recycled products, or by supporting trailblazing factories that recycle up to 98% of their wastewater. Not just for the coast that we call home, but for every inch of the Earth that inspires us.
