Good Studios handmakes its 100% hemp linen bedding locally and lovingly. The hemp fabric is naturally thermoregulating, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter, it has antibacterial properties, meaning you won’t have to wash it as regularly, saving you both water, energy and time and it is a super durable natural fibre. The brand’s sheets and pillowcases come in both vibrant and neutral tones.
The Bed Threads sheets may just be the most aesthetically pleasing bedding we’ve ever seen. Big call, I know. These stunning sheets and bedding essentials come in an array of colours and are all made from 100% flax linen. Flax linen is perfect for sleeping year-round as it keeps you cool in the heat and acts as an insulator in the cold. This natural fibre ages like fine wine, with every wash softening the fabric and making your sheets even dreamier. The signature Bed Threads flax is grown in France by registered farmers and suppliers and is ethically manufactured by a certified factory in China (see the Bed threads website for details). Producing flax linen also requires less water and fewer pesticides to cultivate than other alternatives.
