SDH Spring linens available on our website!

The Earthsake website is undergoing some major re-vamping, just for you!  The first on our list to be updated with their newest collection is SDH, our finest luxury European linens. If you don’t know about the SDH collection, it’s time to get educated! Around 1986, after living in New York and developing a deep love for textiles, Sigrid Wagner brought her European charm into Northern California. Keeping an environmentally conscious mind, she first created The Purists line (a wave of organic linens with soft whites and ivory tones), and shortly after, the SDH collection blossomed.

Not only does SDH use natural and sustainable fibers, they are based out of Fairfield (and we love to keep it close and simple!). Here at Earthsake, we proudly sell all three collections: SDH, Legna, and the Pursits collection.

SDH Italian Linens:  Included in the SDH line are intricately woven duvet covers, coverlets, low-impact and fiber reactive dyed sheets, and beautifully decorative shams. All pieces are richly hued in color and wear very well for years. These pieces match perfectly to the Legna luxury all natural wood fiber sheets

Legna Luxury: Though most popular as sheets and pillow cases, Legna also feels and looks beautiful as shams or duvet covers. Softer than silk, and softer with wear and wash, this luxurious textile (wood fiber) is used thoughtout the SDH collection, and woven very specifically in Italy. The pulp used to make this fabric is all natural, and biodegradable. Multi-tonal, Legna has a beautiful sheen to it and brings vibrancy to any bedroom.

The Purists: This is the all-natural and organic line of products from SDH. Extremely soft, The Purists is full of delicate whites, ivory shades, and ecru tones. These linens contain no chemical ingredients, bleaches, or dyes. Just the purest, natural cotton.

Now that you’re familiar with our luxury linen line, you’ll be happy to know why it’s so important we’re re-vamping our website!  Our store in Berkeley also carries some of the SDH, Legna, and Purist collection; we also house ALL of the swatches from these collections, a great idea if you are matching pieces in your bedroom, or if you just need to see/feel something in person!

SPOTLIGHT: Earthsake’s Organic Wool

Wool. Wool. WOOL.

Since we are currently in full swing with our natural bedding sale (20% off!!), let’s get to know a little bit about the benefits of Earthsake’s Organic Wool.

Local Love and Happy Sheep

Here at Earthsake, we are all about supporting our local heroes. Not only is our wool sourced in America, it’s sourced from the happiest sheep on organic farms in the Sonoma Valley. Locally produced and harvested, the free-ranged sheep graze on pastures free of pesticides for a two year minimum, and any changes in their diet must be organically based. The inoculations are monitored as well, diligently made free of synthetics and hormones. Through the shearing process, ranchers take extra time to provide a clean environment for the sheep, and the wool cleansing process is no different. After the wool has been sheered, careful steps are taken to eliminate any chemical additives: cleaned with water and processed purely without the use of bleach, formaldehyde or dyes. The end result is simple: an all natural and organic wool from the happiest, local sheep!

No More Sticky Nights!

The temperature of your body while you sleep is not only key for comfort, but also for your all-around health. If your bedding is causing excess heat, it can cause a plethora of problems like elevating your heart rate and blood pressure. Being too hot while you sleep can also cause you to toss and turn, resulting in a shallow sleep, when your body needs a deeper sleep to rejuvenate its muscles and tissues. Wool is naturally a temperature regulating fiber, being able to control both warm and cool body temperatures. It also absorbs and evaporates moisture without a lingering “dampy” feeling.

Strength and Resilience for Wiggle Machines

What kind of sleeper are you? Maybe you’re a starfish belly sleeper, or a restless wiggle machine. Folding, twisting, bending, jumping- your comforter endures endless shape shifting, so the filling should be strong. The springiness make-up of the wool fiber (like a coiled spring) keeps the batting from shifting around or causing clumps. This means it will also maintain its natural fluff. Not only is wool resilient, it’s also a very durable and flexible fiber. It can bend on itself 20,000 times without breaking – good news for the high-velocity wiggle machines out there!

Mold, Mildew, Mites – Oh My!

We now know that wool is a temperature regulator. So not only does this hollow fiber wick away moisture, it also naturally repels dust mites and mildew. Essentially, it will clean itself and be self-maintaining to a large degree. Added bonus: the unique chemical structure of wool is naturally flame resistant, so there is no need for added flame retardants.

The Earthsake wool is one of many fantastic products of our Natural Bedroom collection. Because of all the great benefits it produces, both environmentally and personally, we have wool products available in all of our natural bedding (pillows, comforters, toppers, mattress pads). Of course, these are just a few of the MANY great facts and benefits of the organic wool we use at Earthsake. Visit the website for more info!

What it Means to be Organic: Explaining and Expanding With Our Cotton

For over twenty years Earthsake has produced a signature line of organic mattresses and bedding. We’ve pioneered the ever-expanding market of natural fiber mattresses and bedding, but we aren’t going to stop there. Soon, we will be working with the same 100% organic cotton used in and around our mattresses, pillows and comforters to create our own line of bed and bath linens. These items are not only luxurious, organic and pure, but they are also local.

Made exclusively in the USA (grown in California and Texas) our organic cotton meets Global Organic Certification standards and helps support small, local family farmers. We are happy to team with companies that fall into line with our ethos as a small, local business and are excited to work with them in order to produce a line of bedding and bath linens that meet the highest standards not only in green living, but also in comfort.

When people talk about organic products they generally know the term, but don’t understand how labor intensive the phrase “we’re organic” actually is.  In order to earn a certified organic cotton label, the cotton must be grown in soil where the use of pesticides has been discontinued for at least three years. Compost and other organic matter enrich the soil, and innovative farm machinery and old-fashioned hand-to-earth labor control weeds. Farmers utilize frequent crop rotation and beneficial insects to further assist the crops without the use of herbicides. The long staple Pima cotton in our mattresses, bedding, and, now, bed and bath linens is 100% U.S. certified organically grown and free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Organic farmers are respectful of the earth — their methods preserve and enhance the health of our topsoil. These farmers rotate crops helping to eliminate plant diseases and pests. Organic farming depends on a detailed knowledge of natural processes, local soil conditions and weather. Only by farming on a relatively small scale does a farmer have this knowledge of their land required for successful organic cultivation.

We honor the labor and creative energy of each person who has a hand in our production process. We enforce strict standards throughout each stage of this process from growing the cotton fiber, spinning into yarn and weaving this yarn to construct fabrics and finished products. No chemical softeners, finishes, formaldahyde or silicone can be used in manufacturing our signature line of products. They must maintain a pure and natural production process. By purchasing Earthsake products you support sustainable, bio-diverse agriculture and responsible manufacturing.

For years, we have contracted with small, local American manufacturers and farmers for U.S. Certified long staple organic cotton, PureGrow wool (providing a natural, organic fire-retardant inside our mattresses) and more. Our mattresses and bedding products had organic cotton in them before there was a certification for it. In fact, we are proud to have been part of the formulation of several types of organic, natural and earth-friendly certifications in existence today. Our suppliers and manufacturers have passed these stringent certification requirements in order to make our signature line of products. So you know if it carries the Earthsake label its organic, pure and local.

Our commitment to quality ensures your satisfaction – from the earth to you. We believe the path to healthy living for the planet (and for each one of us) is found through the responsible use of the earth’s treasures. With Earthsake’s signature line of products, you enhance the health of your home and your own well being.
