Boll & Branch CEO and Co-Founder Scott Tannen has said in interviews, “With the disastrous effects of climate change becoming more and more prevalent, it’s more important than ever to be conscious of our impact on the planet. [….] We are meticulous in regard to our production process, ensuring we are doing right by the world, every step of the way.”
Boll & Branch has no room for harmful toxins in its final products or manufacturing process. The cotton that goes into their bedding line is grown in a sustainable, healthy way, helping to develop healthier soil and protect natural resources by using rainwater, natural manure as fertilizer, and marigolds (calendula) as a natural companion planting pest deterrent. The result is a safer, healthier, more sustainable process and product for farmers, factory workers and the environment, as well as the end user – you!
Boll & Branch’s most popular product is their Solid Hemmed Sheet Set (View Price on Boll & Branch). This set ranges in price from $200-$295 for Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, King W/ Std Cases, California King and Split King. The sheets are made with organic cotton, are light and luxurious, feel soft right out of the box, and get more comfortable with every wash. They are available in eight colors, and the set includes a Flat Sheet, Fitted Sheet, two Pillowcases (just one for the Twin/Twin XL), and a reusable laundry bag for storage.
These sheets are made with long-staple cotton, which makes the fabric softer, stronger, and more durable. Single-ply cotton means that the sheets are light and soft, and they are woven with a four-over, one-under design for a 300-Thread Count. The fitted sheets fit mattresses up to 17 inches deep.
Boll & Branch have expanded beyond their signature sheet set to offer a variety of styles and fabrics, including Banded and Striped Sheet Sets (View Price on Boll & Branch), and seasonal styles like Modern Floral and Summer Vines, also made with GOTS certified organic cotton and ranging in price from $210-$305.
In addition to organic cotton sheets, Boll & Branch also offer linen sheets, with their Linen Stripe Sheet Set ranging in price from $345-$415. These sheets are made with European flax, and are breathable and comfortable, to help you keep your cool in summer and stay cozy in winter. The sheet set includes one Flat Sheet, one Fitted Sheet, two Pillowcases, and a reusable laundry bag for storage, with the fitted sheet fitting mattresses up to 17 inches deep. And these flax sheets are also certified to Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
Boll & Branch offer free ground shipping for U.S. customers and a full refund within 30 days if you’re not happy with your sheets.
Boll & Branch vs. Rawganique vs. Holy Lamb Organics
If you’re looking for high-quality no-fuss organic cotton sheets, or a comprehensive bedding package that is eco-friendly, Boll & Branch are hard to beat. Their GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified sheets are made using environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices, and the company is an excellent example of a start-up that is disrupting conventional industry practices. Still, Rawganique and Holy Lamb Organics are more comprehensive in their eco-efforts, so these remain top in class for organic cotton sheets.
