What to look for while buying new sheets
We recommend you pay attention to the following three points. This will help you to build a better bed, and be kinder to the Earth in the process.
1. Fiber content
What are your sheets made of? Are they cotton? Linen? Polyester? A blend of natural and synthetic fibers?
Natural fibers, like 100% cotton and 100% linen, are the most breathable, keeping you comfortable and promoting the best sleep. There are many options on the market that are made from bamboo or eucalyptus, but these are not always as great for the environment as they'd like to make you think. Read more here.
All of Coyuchi's sheets are 100% organic, made of cotton or linen, and designed for all types of sleepers. Visit our sheet guide to find your perfect sheets.
2. Fiber Processing
Conventional (non-organic) processing involves the addition of toxic finishes, bleaches, and dyes, piling on to the harmful mix of pesticides and chemicals already applied in the fiber growing process. Coyuchi only uses GOTS-certified methods to turn our organic fiber into organic sheets. This means that all dyes and finishes are naturally free from any chemicals that might harm human health or ecosystems, keeping factory workers and consumers safe.
From waste reduction to water conservation, our organic farming and conscious processing reduce our impact on the soil, air, and waterways our global community relies on.
Organic Cotton is naturally softer and stronger than conventional cotton — plus it’s free from pesticides and harsh chemicals, requires less water and energy to produce, lowers greenhouse gas emissions, and contributes to healthier soil.
Organic Linen makes up less than 1% of the world's linen supply. Exceptionally durable and temperature regulating, linen is a naturally hardy and drought-friendly fiber — and organic linen supports farmers who grow organic food, too.
When you're looking to make an impact with your purchase, it's important to seek out products with the proper certifications. Marketing terms can make things seem more sustainable than they are, which is why we only create linens that adhere to the highest standards and certifications in the industry.
Coyuchi sheets are 100% GOTS-certified organic. We choose GOTS Certification because it is the highest standard in the world. From seed to store — it scrutinizes every input at every stage, concerned not only with the health of the end product, but taking into account the environmental impact of every facility, and the health, safety, and well-being of its handlers throughout the supply chain. GOTS eliminates blind spots for consumers, providing full traceability and accountability every step of the way.
