Soft and smooth, pure organic cotton percale bed linens are a pleasure to sleep in. Our new Somers range is made from 100% organic percale cotton with single satin stitch detailing and smart Oxford borders for a luxuriously understated finish.
High quality organic cotton, 210 threads per inch, made in fair trade conditions.
Available in gently oxygen-bleached "eco-white", a soft antique white. Finished with a single row of satin stitch embroidery running edging the Oxford borders of the duvet covers and pillowcases. Embroidery colour options are white, taupe or mist (a soft silver shade).
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.
