Natural Inspiration: 10,000 Foot Organic Cotton Bedding

10,000 Foot Organic Cotton Bedding

10,000 Foot Organic Cotton Bedding As a card-carrying member of the creative community, I understand that the inspiration process is a unique and varied one. Creative people can turn anything into a muse, from an old song to the colors of a butterfly to about a zillion other possible things. But as consumers, we don’t often get a chance to learn what inspired a deigner to create a product.  When we do, however, it has a way of changing the buying experience for the better.

The 10,000 Foot Organic Cotton bedding collection offers one of those opportunities. So as not to cheapen the description, I wil give it to you directly:

Flying low over the vast fields in California’s San Joaquin Valley, our bedding designer was inspired by the lines and textures of crop rows, flowers, and irrigation canals. She imaginatively translated those natural patterns into the rippling surfaces and broad contrasting bands of our organic cotton collection, as seen in the shams and decorative pillows with sophisticated crush-pleating. An aerial ocean view inspired the channel-quilted, pick-stitched coverlet’s wave pattern. Three dimensional French hand knots rim the sateen lumbar pillows. Complementary earth tones enable her thoroughly original and brilliantly executed modern living collection to soar high above any other.

Doesn’t that change the experience dramatically?  Don’t get me wrong — the bedding is gorgeous either way. But now, when you close your eyes wrapped in organic cotton goodness, you will almost be able to see the rows of crops that inspired the design.  You will be able to feel the connection with nature that the designer must have felt.  And since I deeper connection with nature is at the heart of going green anyway, I say go for it.

    Why so expensive? Seems like there is some greenwashing going on with them… Target has organic cotton sheet sets for $50!

    @David Target isn’t the best example, for a couple of reasons. Target sources most of its products from overseas and the quality of the sheets you’ll get there won’t be comparable to these. If price if your main concern, by all means…Target is the way to go. But Viva Terra’s quality is better and the company has a record of environmentally friendly practices that can’t be matched by a bix box store like Target. And like with all products, even non-green, there are value products and luxury products, and this is a luxury product.

    And, in my opinion, there are many other reasons why Target’s sheets would be cheaper. They’re a multinational corporation that keeps prices low by operating in bulk and making huge profits with little concern for Fair Trade practices. These kinds of stores are created for profit first and everything else last. I don’t know a whole lot about VivaTerra but preliminary searches outline a company that is very concerned about doing things in an ethical manner. By my best judgement, they are taking care to be *not only* eco-conscious, but also socially responsible (moreso than Target, relative to dollar-for-dollar profit) and they also offer some Fair Trade items.

    My point is that big box stores have a bottom line that is ALWAYS profit. Smaller, independent stores have to have the same bottom line to survive, but it is much more easily “polluted” by things that matter (to us and to them,) which drives up cost. All quality of VivaTerra’s sheets aside, I always prefer to shop (more) locally and small(er) business when possible for these reasons.

    SOMEONE ALWAYS PAYS FOR ROCK-BOTTOM PRICES. If its not YOU, it is someONE (child labor, sweatshops, maquiladora, poor employee benefits, a desparate business) or someTHING (our water, our air, our resources.)

    Eeep…. I never intended to go on so much!

    While I agree with you on some of those points, spending that much money on sheets seems to be a waste, but if you have the money to burn….

    Such clean, neutral colors.. perfect for a nature themed home. Throw in candid photographic shots of wildlife for good measure.
