Birch (Linen Mix)
A fabulous mix of pure linen and organic cotton duvet covers and pillowcases in a simple checked design. Super soft and wonderful to sleep in. A stylish addition to either a classic or contemporary bedroom.
All of our bed linen is made in fair trade conditions and is certified organic by Control Union (formerly Skal), recognised by the Soil Association.
Firstly, choosing organic and ethically produced cotton changes lives in developing countries. It frees farmers and their families from exposure to highly toxic pesticides and is part of a movement that provides funding, healthcare, education and good working conditions.
Then every step in the chain from plant to finished product is certified as being carried out in accordance with fair trade conditions.
Conventional cotton is the world's most sprayed crop, using over 25% of total insecticides. Many of the chemicals used are highly toxic and they wash into rivers and streams where they make their way into the food chain. In contrast, organic farming uses only traditional, healthy, pest control methods.
