Organic Cotton Bedding Information

 

 

Cotton Bedding

Go To Top of Page

All Blessed Earth sheets, covers and protectors are fully certified by Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS). This is your guarantee of purity. Blessed Earth offers what is generally acknowledged to be the finest variety of certified organic cotton bed-linen in the world - all of it at wholesale direct to you prices.

Any dyes used are certified organic, which means no heavy metals are used in the manufacture of the dyes. They are relatively safe and this adds significantly to the cost of our bed-linen. However, if you have severe chemical sensitivities it’s better to stay with natural undyed fabric.

Our cotton is harvested, cleaned, spun, woven into fabric, them made into beautifully styled bed-linen all within a tight radius in central India.  It is easy to claim that something is organic or made from organic cotton etc and there are no penalties for falsification. To have a bed-linen product fully certified by GOTS requires a great deal of determined and well-intended effort.

We are indebted to Go Green Textiles, who refer to themselves as Blessed Earth’s factory, for their unwavering commitment to sustainable practices such as solar power and an organic farm that supplies fresh Gir milk and produce to their workers daily.

Sustainability

The cotton it is made from is grown in a sustainable community of 300 families near Indore in Central India. Cows are raised for dairy products and their manure is used to generate bio-gas for cooking and lighting before going into the compost which uses Bio-Dynamic preparations. The community relies on Monsoonal rains and utilizes the ancient practice of Agni-Hotra to further energise the growing area. Every part of the cotton crop is important. The twigs of the bush are used for lighting fires, the leaves go into the compost. Mechanical traps are set for the insects that predate on the crop. The cotton bolls are handpicked at their maturity up to 5 times a season. This is in stark contrast to the western practice of machine harvesting once a year.

Certified Organic

The cotton is spun in a mill devoted exclusively to Certified Organic Cotton and manufactured under Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) supervision in an ultra-modern weaving mill. Our factory nearby is also fully GOTS certified. Any dyes used are certified organic by GOTS.

Fair Trade Practices

Our cotton workers are respected and well looked after. A special school has been set up exclusively for the benefit of their children. The Swayam Academy not only features a state of the art education facility but also teaches Yoga, Meditation and other extra-curricular activities that will enrich their lives.

Low Carbon Miles

 All of the growing; processing and manufacturing takes place within a very tight radius. There has been no organic cotton grown in Australia for 10 years now and that is probably as it should be. In the absence of monsoonal rains, it takes a lot of maintenance effort and water to grow a cotton crop organically. The villagers in our community love their work and their lives in making the considerable effort that goes into the clothing you get to buy.

A Note to our Valued Customers

Over the years we have steadily improved the quality and finish of the bed-linen products we offer you, working on the little things that make a difference.

The aim is to give you a product you are proud to have in your home, at an affordable price. So we double stitch the header stitch on your flat sheets and attach the flanges of quilt covers and pillowcases so that we can mitre the corners for a superior finish.

These are the things you won't know about until you fit the product you buy elsewhere to your bed. We suggest you ask some questions before purchasing, ask about certification too. There are now dozens of businesses selling so-called "organic" or even "certified organic" bed-linen without a shred of proof. Most of it comes from China and is of questionable origin. If you expect more from the businesses selling questionable products, by letting them know they need to substantiate their claims - and by telling your friends if they refuse - then we will all be moving towards a marketplace of greater integrity.

Testimonial

"Just wanted to say that I absolutely love your sheets, I have varying sizes from cot to king size. In particular the king size are luxuriously soft, are generous in size so there is heaps to tuck in at the bottom and plenty left at the top to fold over doonas or blankets, the fitted sheets are just as generous and great for thick mattresses. They wash beautifully and improve with age, I have thrown my other conventional sheets away as I can no longer stand them against my skin! Thanks for such wonderful quality products!" Tracey H.
