Fresh summer sheets – we’ve compiled a list of where you can buy the best bed linen

where to buy bed linen

We'll admit it summer is our favourite time of year. We relish in the long sleepy days, lying in the sun, drinking from our condensation dripped bottles of lemony sparkling water with a book in hand. But alas, of all the summer pastimes we must ask is there really any simpler pleasure in life like that of fresh linen sheets on a humid January day? If there is we don't want to know about it.

Over the past few years we've seen a shift in interior that has pivoted away from heavy, oppressive fabrics in favour of something lighter. No matter the season it seems that organic, pillowy linens are always a favourite for us budding interior stylists. The problem is where to find the right ones and how to go about looking for them.

So, what do we look out for with bed linen?

The aim of the game is to stick with sustainable, quick drying light linens. In the summer months we have the luxury of more daylight hours, so running the dryer isn't something of a concern when we have the gift of sunshine. When looking for a bottom sheet, the trick is to look for durable and sweat resistant after all your body is making contact with it daily and we want nothing but the best for our skin.

What about materials?

The general rule of thumb should be to look for sustainable linen. Fabrics such as French flax linen and linen sheets dyed using eco friendly volcanic rock materials are a great way to remain conscious. Other tips like buying repurposed vintage fabric and organic bamboo based linen are equally as helpful towards the planet.

Where to buy bed linen and how much?
