When we tell people we make beddings out of wood people think we're crazy, but hey we don't blame them. We were just as surprised as them the first time we ever heard of Lyocell, and now we can't imagine going back to ordinary cotton sheets. The silk-like smoothness of our fabric translates to Lyocell, it is one of the most sustainable materials of the 21st century with an award-winning close loop system where 99,6% of the solvent and a lot of the water that is used is recycled and reused.
Apart from an eco-friendly manufacturing process, Lyocell is made from fast-growing trees that are less water demanding than cotton and uses less land area to grow on.
Speaking of cotton, let's talk about cotton for a second...
Cotton is quite a thirsty plant indeed. To make one T-shirt, 2700 liters of water is used. The sad part is that cotton usually only grows in parts of the world where water is scarce, in fact, 73% of the grown cotton requires irrigation. Apart from being water thirsty, the cotton industry uses a lot of chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. To put things in perspective cotton only grows on 2,4% of the worlds arable land but it uses 24% of the world's pesticides.
Now, what should you do? We think you can figure out what to do... Our Lyocell sheets are made from sustainable wood pulp without any harmful chemicals so you can sleep with ease. With advantages such as 50% better moist absorbent than cotton and that it's extremely breathable, you can say goodbye to those hot sweaty nights. Lyocell is also naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic, supersoft to the skin and to top things off, luxurious in shine and flow. Sounds like the ideal beddings, don't you think?
