As you know by now, we are big advocates of the organic and eco-friendly lifestyle – natural skincare products, natural and organic linens, clothing, and most importantly, our own organic bedding and mattresses. It’s our goal to fit the needs of you and your loved ones – we try to have a little something for everyone. If you’ve been in our beautiful Berkeley location on Fourth street, you may have also seen that we host a large amount of products specifically for the babies! Our baby section has become quite expansive over the years, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Beyond carrying our own Earthsake bedding products for the little ones (cribs, pillows, wool pads, crib bumpers, mattress protectors, etc.), we carefully select children’s products that are natural and organic, or local to the Bay Area.
We have organic and eco-friendly blankets, swaddles, organic clothing, teethers and greenware (no more worrying about what your child is putting in its’ mouth!), and greentoys, that the kids love playing while they’re in the shop. If you’re needing a little something for your own child, a niece or nephew, grandchild, our baby products make wonderful and thoughtful gifts!
At Earthsake, we’re very picky about the jewelry we chose to represent in our store. Each artist that we carry has a unique and individualistic style from the last – usually handcrafted pieces, and local to the Bay Area. We’re proud to start carrying a new line of jewelry from Rose Gilley, a designer from Sacramento. Each piece of Gilley’s designs are handcrafted, made from semi-precious and precious gemstones. Delicate and simple, they are versatile enough for everyday wear, or an evening of fun! Earthsake has brought in select pieces, most notable, various stackable rings. Made with a fine silver band, some have different colored gemstones, hooked with a 14kt gold filled wiring. These stackable rings are perfect for mixing and matching, and can fit on virtually any part of the finger (the base, below or above the knuckle, or both!). Great as little gifts for someone, or little treats for yourself!

As we all know from out spotlight in April, the Legna Italian linens from SDH are heavenly (and in case you missed it, there is a link at the bottom for more info). Did you know that other than bedding, SDH also makes towels and other bath accessories as apart of their Legna collection? Amazing, we know! We had a chance to chat with our buyer Wendi, who has a set of the Legna towels and is absolutely bananas for them.
Why do you love the Legna bath towels?
Wendi Goad: They are so silky, smooth, and super absorbent. The Legna towels very lightly exfoliate as well, so I feel fresh and clean after using them.
Do you have a full set?
Wendi: Yes! I started with just a bath towel and some wash cloths in the shark (a rich gray), and just recently bought more wash cloths and hand towels.
What do you like best about them?
Wendi: I like using the wash cloths on my face because they’re so soft and you can’t see the make-up I’m taking off on them!
That’s great! Do they wash well, compared to other towels?
Wendi: Very. I’ve had many of the towels that we carry, and none of them compare quite like the Legna towel. They get super soft with every wash, they hold up really well, and the colors are fantastic.
The Legna towels come in several different color ways, making it easy to match any bathroom space! We have a few in stock at our Berkeley location so you can experience the color, shine, and texture for yourself. We also have a few washed samples of the towels, so you can see what it will feel and look like once the material has gone through proper washing.

Another staff pick! We asked Ricci what her favorite Earthsake product is, and though it took her two full days to finally narrow it down, she settled on Yala’s very soft and comfy bamboo Nina Robe.
What is your favorite Earthsake product?
Ricci: It was very hard for me to pick just one… but I’ll go with the Nina Robe by Yala. It’s super soft, has pockets, and the rope is attached so I never lose it.
Do you own the Nina Robe? Why?
Ricci: Yes! I have it in black. Though I wish I had gotten the polka dots… I might have to own both.
Would you recommend the Nina Robe by Yala?
Ricci: I would, definitely. It’s light-weight, perfect for travel, and washes VERY well. The Nina is also gathered at the waist, making for a much more flattering fit. The bamboo is so, so soft – don’t be surprised if you fall asleep in it!
Time for our staff picks! We had the pleasure of asking our co-owner Heather a few questions about her favorite Earthsake product, the 1.5″ wool pad!
What is your favorite Earthsake product?
Heather G: The 1.5″ topper, definitely!
So comfy! Why is the 1.5″ topper your favorite?
HG: It’s the one piece that transforms your mattress. Whether you have an old or a new mattress, it’s the one item that can change your bed.
Are you currently sleeping on it now?
HG: Yes! Funny story. My husband and I (Co-owner Eric) have the (Earthsake) Rhapsody mattress. We moved the mattress onto a specific set of wooden slats that firmed up the mattress quite a bit for us – we put the 1.5″ wool pad on the Rhapsody and it has been HEAVENLY. It was just the right amount of plushness that we needed!
That’s great! Would you recommend the 1.5″ wool pad? Why?
HG: Of course! I would recommend the wool pad for your overall health, healthy sleeping, for alignment, and most of all, for comfort!
As some of you already know, our wool is organically and locally grown in Sonoma County. It’s naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and dust mites, making it perfect for any climate! Wool will also regulate your body temperature, lowering your blood pressure and keeping you from sweating at night. The 1.5″ wool pad in particular is awesome because it lays directly on top of the mattress, so it fits snuggly underneath your fitted sheet!
