We spend eight hours a day in bed (if we’re lucky). That’s one third of our lives, and it’s a place we feel safe, secure and peaceful. Yet conventional cotton producers consume more than 25% of the world’s pesticides, and the resulting products can trigger allergies and eczema, and irritate delicate skin – especially in babies and children.
Fou Furnishings have created an exclusive range of affordable, luxurious organic bedding for babies, children and adults which bring style, superior quality and unsurpassed comfort into the home.
“Provenance is key” says Fou Furnishings’ founder, Stephanie McIntosh. “We work closely with all our cotton farmers to ensure we buy only the best organic cotton and work with people producers certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), the most stringent standards for organic textiles.”
Fou Furnishings’ extensive range includes the remarkable Egyptian cotton range, Elisabetta, made from the finest organic cotton fibre and finishing available in the world. Different bedrooms, budgets and tastes are also catered for in the range from the city-chic of Monochrome to the simply purity of Elsa and the playful pastels of Bamboo.
The Organic Essentials range is a no nonsense 100% organic cotton bed linen range with a very high 330 thread count for an exceptionally smooth and soft feel (which we can vouch for!)
“Organic bedding is particularly important for babies” adds Stephanie. “Babies spend about 70% of their first year in bed, so the quality of their bedding is really important. A baby’s skin is more porous than that of an adult and has the potential to absorb residues more easily. Babies are more vulnerable to chemical-overload than adults because they are small and still growing.”
Organic cotton is beautifully soft and comforting for sensitive skin as it is guaranteed to be 100% toxic-free, making for a much happier sleeping experience. What’s more, organic cotton bedding has long fibres, keeping it looking superior even with frequent laundering.
