Rawganique’s Organic Sheets (View Prices on Rawganique) are free from sweatshop labor, non-toxic, and include organic cotton, linen, and hemp. These sheets contain no pesticides, fire retardants, biocides, stain repellents, wrinkle-proofing chemicals, dioxins, or formaldehyde. Instead, they are made in a sustainable, ethical way and are available in unbleached and undyed natural colors.
All of Rawganique’s products are ethically and sustainably made by artisans. Rawganique have been growing, weaving, knitting and sewing their organic sheets in-house in USA, Canada, and Europe since 1997. They use only biodegradable fiber-reactive dyes, with absolutely no azo dyes.
Rawganique’s organic cotton sheets (View Prices on Rawganique) are soft, smooth, and silky and are increasingly used by eco hotels because of their quality. If you like traditional cotton sheets, these are the ones for you. If you like a little texture in your sheets, go for linen or hemp instead (View Prices on Rawganique).
For a number of years, Rawganique only offered Euro-Luxury organic cotton sheets made in Europe under strict environmental conditions, despite wanting to make their sheets in the US. After figuring out how to do this ethically and sustainably, while achieving the quality for which they are known, Rawganique once again offer organic cotton sheets manufactured in a US mill.
Rawganique’s organic linen sheets are rare in this category as they are unbleached and undyed and completely natural. These sheets are finely textured, crisp, and smooth, like traditional ultra-fine linens are supposed to be. Rawganique recommend that anyone new to linens buy a pillowcase and sleep on it, wash it, and then buy a set once you realize how much you love it. Their linen sheets are available as Blvd Hausmann Organic French Linen Sheets (View Price on Rawganique), which are relaxed, meaning they never need ironing. These sheets are made at the Rawganique Atelier in Europe and are hypoallergenic. Other sheets include Parisian Organic French Linen (View Price on Rawganique), which are individual sheets that are dye-free, extra-fine, and available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King. These are also made in Europe.
Pillowcases and shams in Standard, Queen, and King sizes are also available in French Linen (View Prices on Rawganique), as are French Linen Duvet Covers in Twin, Full/Queen, and King sizes (View Prices on Rawganique). Or, make life easy by buying a Parisian Organic French Linen Sheet Set (View Price on Rawganique). If you’re looking to add a little pattern to your bed sheets, try the Bespoke Organic French Linen Pillowcases, available in two classic stripe patterns for Standard, Queen, and King (View Prices on Rawganique).
Rawganique’s organic hemp sheets include pillowcases, shams, fitted sheets, flat sheets, and duvet covers ranging from $26 to $559 (View Prices on Rawganique). These sheets are even rarer than their linens, with Rawganique possibly the only manufacturer making such sheets. They grow, weave, and sew organic hemp sheets in-house, meaning they know for a fact that they are non-toxic. Hemp sheets feel and look very similar to linen with a textured, lush, cozy feel. Again, it’s a good idea to buy a hemp pillowcase and go from there. If you’re looking for a little color, try the Hemp Chambray Bed Sheets (View Price on Rawganique). These are made in-house at the Rawganique Atelier in Europe from organically grown European hemp and organic cotton chambray. They are available undyed, unbleached, in natural, and color-grown sage and earth brown. The line includes pillowcases, shams, fitted sheets, flat sheets, and duvet covers ranging from $26 to $566.
To care for your sheets, avoid high heat for hemp and linen. Instead, line dry to keep them in good shape.
Rawganique was founded in 1997 by off-grid homesteaders on Denman Island off the west coast of Canada. They have deliberately stayed small-scale over the last 20 years so as to preserve the integrity of their eco-friendly efforts. The company handcrafts products made with organic cotton, linen, and hemp, and maintains control of the purity and sustainability of their products by growing, weaving, knitting, and sewing most of them right on their homestead. The founders describe themselves as ‘chemically sensitive people’ who use only their own products because they can guarantee their purity.
Rawganique vs. Coyuchi, Holy Lamb Organics, and West Elm
Rawganique are market leaders in the eco-friendly organic bedding sector. They offer high quality, 100 percent organic bedding including cotton, linen, and hemp sheets. They are hugely invested in producing quality products through sustainable and ethical manufacturing practices and their only real rivals are in the category of cotton sheets, with no one else making hemp or linen sheets quite like Rawganique. For organic cotton sheets in a wider range of colors and styles, check out Coyuchi (View Price on Amazon) and Holy Lamb Organics. These companies also offer linen/cotton blends, while Coyuchi also offers linen sheets that are dyed and relaxed.
West Elm also offer quality organic cotton and European linen sheets made with similar values and care, but for a slightly lower price (for flax at least) compared to Coyuchi and Rawganique. West Elm’s linen line is not all organic, unlike Coyuchi and Rawganique.
