Most of you know me as the green building lady but few know how much I love green decor. I swoon over the bold colors of some green fabrics and dig multi-functional furniture geared towards smaller living spaces. Did I mention how much I adore any furniture that uses reclaimed materials? But what has been lacking in my opinion is bold and beautiful organic sheets and duvets. Sure. There are single color beautiful organic sheets and a few stray striped ones. I yearn for color.
But I want it all.
Gorgeous, green, and a great sheet count. This green girl has already tried the 200 organic cotton route and was a little disappointed. So I have been watching my favorites, Pottery Barn and the Company Store, to turn up the heat when it comes to eco-color. And they made some nice bold leaps.
Before I start, keep in mind that thread count and percale vs sateen are all personal choices. I look for a 300 thread count for my sheets or duvets. Subsequently, I purchased the 350 organic cotton count duvet cover pictured rather than another 200 thread count duvets. Comfort and color have to work together in my book. For more information about what to look for when buying organic sheets, see here.
So, take a look at some of the contenders:
Pottery Barn’s Duvets
I happen to love Pottery Barn. Is there anyone who doesn’t? Their style invokes that Sunday afternoon, dress down feel from someone who has it all together. You know. That woman or man who can just put it all together and it just works? (If this is you, I am insanely jealous. Some would describe me an accessory phobic. Personally, I would like be referred to as a minimalist.)
Here are some of the organic duvets that I love:
Shown above is Pottery Barn’ Woodland organic duvet cover. The cover and sheet are 100% organic, 200 count percale cotton. The duvet is currently on sale for $25-99 depending on the size needed.
I love gardening. Can’t you tell from my choice above? Unfortunately, the Sophia duvet cover clashed with my drapes. Otherwise, this would have been my first choice. It is 100% organic 350 count, sateen cotton. The price for the duvet ranges from $39-169 depending on the size you need.
The Company Store’s Geo Organic Sheets:
Who doesn’t adore the fretwork on the sheets above? The sheets are 100% organic GOTS certified cotton. (GOTS certified is the highest standard in textile industry.) However, the sheets are 180 count and I worry that they might be scratchy. Have you found 180 thread count to be soft or scratchy? Flat, fitted, and pillow cases are sold separately. Prices start at $22 for a twin flat sheet.
Note, that the Company Store sells 350 count Micro Cotton Earth tone solid sheets if you are looking for a higher thread count. Prices start at $29 for a twin flat sheet.
Plover’s Organic Sheets
The sheets and duvet covers are 100% organic, GOTS certified, printed by hand, and sateen woven. Each of the duvet covers is reversible. Price vary but they are much more expensive then either Pottery Barn or the Company Store. Starting price on sale for a Twin set is $120. Some twin sets cost $215.00.
If you are looking for additional hand blocked organic duvet or quilts, check out Raksha Bella. The designs are beautiful. (Yet, pricey.)
As the organic cotton industry continues to grow, I expect to see more green design at affordable prices enter the bedroom. Keep you eyes peeled and let me know if you find great count organic sheets. Remember, no one said you have to be boring in the bedroom.
