Fiona Organic Duvet Cover & Sham

Fiona Organic Duvet Cover & Sham - detail

I will be the first to admit that I love organic bedding. Every few months, I get the itch.  You know…the one that makes you want to completely revamp your room, move around furniture, buy new bedding and curtains…maybe even paint. When I do, it’s good to know I won’t have to settle for less than the organic best. Organic bedding makes me happy. It makes me even happier when you can find said bedding at mass retailers like Pottery Barn, making it accessible to those customers who won’t take the time to find an organic and eco-friendly specialty shop or co-op.

The Fiona Organic Duvet Cover and Sham are simply fabulous. I generally don’t like patterns that come this close to being traditionally floral, but the Fiona collection has just enough graphic quality and modern colors to take it from old-fashioned to sophisticated-casual.

We all know the beenfits of organic cotton: It is grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers and therefore provides the softest, smoothest comfort this side of your baby’s bottom. This particular organic bedding has the added benefit of featuring a print that is nature inspired, so you’ll remember why you wanted organic in the first place.  Oh, and that bed the Fiona set is shown on is made of seagrass. Get it here.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of 100% organic cotton
  • Approved by Oeko-Tex, which tests fibers, threads and components to ensure that each product is healthy for you, healthy for those who produce it and healthy for the environment.
  • Pottery Barn has made an evironmental commitment beyond just their product line: they are also making everyday efforts to make their packaging, stores and catalog greener.

Price: $29-139

    Do you know if being approved by Oeko-Tex makes it certified organic ?

    Hi Alana. That’s a very valid question. being Oeko-Tex certified doesn’t make it organic in and of itself. Organic fabrics can be certified by the organization, but other types of fabrics can be certified as well, as long as they are tested to ensure that they contain no harmful ingredients. You can read more about Oeko-Tex certification here. In this case, there’s a bonus in that the fabric is organic cotton, and it also has been certified after being tested.

    Thanks Jeanne. I noticed that Hanna Andersson has a line of clothing that’s Oeko-Tex certified. Good to know.
