Of Warm Summer Nights and Cool, Soft Sleep Fabric
The last thing you need after a day in the sun is to sweat it out on thick, scratchy sheets. How can you set up your bed so that you drift off into slumberland?
It’s the reward waiting for you at the end of a long, demanding day. It’s the goal after a hard day’s work. It’s no wonder we need eight hours of it, and crave even more. When we finally sink into our beds, and lay our weary heads and shoulders on our pillows, we yearn for nothing more than to drift into a restful slumber – one that will recharge us physically and mentally so that we wake up refreshed and full of energy. No wonder they say sleep is a luxury.
In our quest for a good night’s sleep, the myths, tips, and tricks have most likely outnumbered the actual hours of zzz’s that we’ve clocked in. Finding the right temperature, setting up just the right amount of light (less blue light, please!), and even playing soothing sounds or spraying calming scents are efforts in itself. But the secret to the best sleep ever is as close to you as second skin.
Sustainable fabric for a good night’s sleep
Think fabric. Linen & Homes has developed sustainable bedding woven from 100% cooling bamboo viscose. The result: lightweight sheets that are 3x softer than cotton sheets. And while you slide into your buttery sheets, here are more benefits from bamboo:
They’re naturally cooling. Bamboo fibers actually regulate the temperature of your body, and even the temperature around you. They do not retain heat, so you stay cool. Its moisture-wicking properties means it is breathable which reduces hot flashes and night sweats.
They’re sustainable. Bamboo is an eco-friendly alternative fiber source – it grows faster and can still reproduce even after a harvest, and it requires less water.
They’re hypoallergenic and anti-microbial. Both great features when you have sensitive skin! Its free from allergens, dust mites and bacteria. The anti-microbial properties also mean the bamboo plant does not need pesticides so that’s zero chemicals for you to worry about.
The Linen & Homes Dream Suite
If you haven’t already, it’s time to make the switch and sleep in sustainable fabric. At the Linen & Homes Dream Suite, their new showroom along Perea Street in Legaspi Village, Makati City, you can go ahead and see and feel the attainable luxury and quality of the sustainable fabric that goes into each of their products. Run your hands across the smooth sheets and pillowcases, feel the buttery soft blankets between your fingers, and even get to try on a weighted blanket to see if it’s for you. The beds are inviting, set up completely in their range of products – from the covers all the way down to the mattress toppers and protectors.
In another corner, you’ll also find sleepwear – pajamas, loungewear and robes made to feel soft yet durable and with the perfect amount of stretch for the luxuriously comfortable sleep that you deserve.
And even towels are also made from 100% eco-friendly bamboo terry, loomed to 700 grams per square meter so it’s a perfect combination of softness, durability and absorbency. All this as if to say even the art of getting ready for bed – a nice bath, comfy clothes – is the perfect lead up to falling into soft sheets and fast asleep.
The venue was created as a haven for all things sleep – conducive enough to try the fabric, you can sit on a corner of the bed and find yourself inching your way up to the pillows. You can mix and match the colors and prints, decide on softness, smoothness and weight, and choose sleepwear to complete the experience. At the Linen & Homes Dream Suite, you can design your own good night’s sleep – a feat you thought only possible in dreams.
