Understanding Fabric Types

The fabric of your bedding can make or break your sleep experience. That’s why it's crucial to understand the differences between natural and synthetic materials.

Natural fibers offer unparalleled comfort and durability, while synthetic fibers often lack these qualities. Let’s dive deep into these differences: 

Natural Fibers

Natural fibers include plant-based options like cotton and linen and animal-based options like silk and wool. These fibers offer numerous benefits: 

  • These highly breathable fibers can naturally regulate temperature, ensuring comfort in warm and cool conditions. 
  • Natural fibers are also gentle on the skin, reducing the risk of irritation and allergies. 
  • They are more environmentally friendly as they are biodegradable and often produced sustainably. 

Synthetic Fibers

In contrast, synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon are more affordable but lack the breathability and sustainability of natural fibers. 

  • They can trap heat and moisture, leading to an uncomfortable night's sleep. 
  • Moreover, the production and disposal of synthetic fibers contribute significantly to environmental pollution. 

By choosing bedding made from natural fibers, you invest in comfort and durability while considering the health and well-being of the planet. 


How to Choose Natural Fibers?

Natural fibers are known for their exceptional comfort and impressive longevity. Selecting these fabrics for your bedding can significantly improve your sleep and elevate your bedroom style.

So, which ones should you choose? Here are some of our expert recommendations:  


Linen is highly breathable and moisture-wicking, ideal for hot climates and summer wear. Its distinctive texture and natural luster offer a relaxed yet sophisticated style. 

Over time, linen becomes softer and more comfortable while retaining its durability. This fabric is perfect for hot sleepers and anyone looking for elegant bedding that keeps them cool and comfortable.

  • For a cozy experience, consider our Colette Linen Duvet Cover. Its soft, breathable fabric combines elegance and comfort, ensuring a restful night's sleep. 
  • Pair it with our Colette Linen Cushions to add a touch of luxury and style to your bedroom.

Pure Cotton

Pure cotton is renowned for its softness and hypoallergenic properties, making it perfect for sensitive skin. It is versatile and available in various weaves, thread counts, and colors. 

This natural fabric is durable and withstands regular washing, maintaining its integrity over time. It's an excellent choice for anyone seeking comfortable, everyday use.

  • Enhance your bedding with our Cotton Percale Sheet Set, which offers a crisp, cool feel perfect for a refreshing night's sleep. 
  • Complement it with the Diamond Smoke Cotton Coverlet Set, which adds a layer of stylish warmth and comfort to your bedding and remains soft, durable, and beautiful wash after wash.

Pure Silk

Pure silk is a synonym for luxury. Its smooth, hypoallergenic surface feels gentle against the skin. Its elegant sheen and excellent drape make it a favorite choice for bedding. 

Silk's natural temperature-regulating properties ensure warmth in cooler weather and coolness during warmer nights, giving you unparalleled comfort for restful sleep.

  • Elevate your bedding with our Silk Pillowcase, which enhances your sleep experience and ensures your skin and hair remain smooth and free from irritation. 

Natural fibers provide unmatched comfort and style and ensure longevity, making them a wise investment for any bedroom.
