Our top 5 natural and organic bedding options image

When choosing new bedding, you might have thought about factors like natural vs. synthetic, percale vs. sateen, plain vs. pattern and quality vs. value. But have you considered organic vs. non-organic?

A growing number of bedding manufacturers and suppliers—online and in stores—are offering organic sheets, comforters and duvets, covers, pillows, mattress toppers and more, made without pesticides or other toxic chemicals like formaldehyde and flame retardants, which often find their way into conventional bedding.

Considering you spend about a third of your life in bed, going organic in the bedroom could be an important way to significantly reduce the amount of potentially harmful chemicals you are exposed to on a daily basis.

Here are five top-quality, all-natural and organic bedding picks to help you sleep soundly.

West Elm

Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet Cover, from $66; tel: 888-922-4119

Proving you don't have to sacrifice style for substance, this sumptuous, handstitched duvet cover is made from 100 percent organic cotton and certified by the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS), the leading textile processing standard for organic fibers. It has a 200 thread count with button closures, and the unusual pintuck pleats give it a dreamy cloud-like look that would look stunning in any bedroom. Matching pillowcases are also available.

Magnolia Organics

Organic Buckwheat Pillow, from $45.95; tel: 888-212-7724

Hard and crunchy, buckwheat hulls may sound like an odd choice for a pillow filling, but buckwheat pillows are surprisingly comfy, and they're becoming increasingly popular. Because the hulls don't compress, the pillow conforms to the contours of the head and neck, which may help relieve aches and pains caused by poor neck posture during sleep. Another advantage is that the filling stays loose and airy, allowing moisture to evaporate quickly—ideal if you suffer from night sweats. This pillow—the filling plus the cotton outer—is 100 percent natural and organic.


Damask Stripe Organic Cotton Sheets, from $102; tel: 718-610-0065

Loop has a fantastic range of certified organic bedding, including a selection of high-quality 100 percent cotton sheets, with thread counts of at least 280. These organic cotton sheets are the height of luxury with a thread count of 400, plus they're made without harmful chemicals and certified by GOTS. For everyday luxury, try the 280-thread-count 'Sateen' sheets.


Organic Mattress Pad, from $158; tel: 888-418-8847

Instantly upgrade your mattress with this 100 percent organic cotton mattress—great if you want buffer between you and a synthetic mattress or if you want to protect a pricey organic mattress from the spills and stains life throws at it. It's made up of a 220-thread-count percale organic cotton cover with a 15-inch pocket to fit over even the deepest mattress easily. It's free of nasty chemicals and flame retardants, and it's certified to the GOTS.


Organic Wool-Filled Comforter, from $414; tel: 866-663-0859

Naturally temperature-regulating, hypoallergenic and fire-retardant, wool is an ideal material for bedding, and there's an impressive selection available at the Natural Sleep Store. This 'Como' comforter is filled with 100 percent organic Argentinian wool and quilted between organic cotton. It's available in two different filling weights ('Summer' and 'All Season'), and there are no synthetic materials used whatsoever and no nasty chemicals added.
