Staff pick: the Yala Nina Robe!

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!

Staff pick: Our 1.5″ Wool Topper!

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!

I Love You, Momma.

“A man is a great thing upon the earth, and through eternity—but every jot of the greatness of man is unfolded out of woman,
First the man is shaped in the woman, he can then be shaped in himself.” – Unfolded Out of The Folds by Walt Whitman

 

To my Mother, a real hero –

At this point in my life, I never thought I would have needed you now more than ever. Aren’t I supposed to know everything, being in my mid-20s and a college graduate? The stresses and anxieties of the “adult world” would have eaten me alive if you weren’t by my side. The workforce, relationships, how to properly use the bake and broil functions on the oven –  you always lend an ear and never fail to give advice. Growing up, you single-handedly provided for our family, showing us what the mark of true strength and resilience in womanhood meant. You taught us to be proud of who we are and what we believe in, and to never give up. For such a bold and strong presence, you accomplish everything (and I mean everything) with beauty and grace. You have always been proud ‘for’ me, reminding me what I am capable of, and that I am the champion of all my successes. By always being proud for me, you show your endless, empowering support. You never fail to remind me how bright I shine, so this time it’s my turn to remind YOU, Mom.

Some say, with a slight jab, that we all eventually turn into our mothers. I say I could do a lot worse. I love you, Momma. Thank you.

– Ricci
