The Ancient Egyptians considered pillows not as a sleeping aid, but an art form stuffed with straw.
Fast forward to today and whilst design is still essential, a good nights sleep is a necessity. EcoLinen Organic meets both criteria. It is the first bed linen company in Australia to be certified organic with its new range Chakra - to be showcased at next months HIA Sydney Home Show (1 - 4 May).
Developed by Jenny and Tim Ower, EcoLinen Organics Chakra range is free from toxins and synthetics.
Such toxins - particularly formaldehyde which is used as a cotton smoothing agent - can cause allergy problems for children, adults and those with sensitive skin. The range removes these irritants courtesy of its certified organic farming and production methods.
Available in white or stone with contrasting stitch, prices start form RRP $239 for a single duvet cover to $279 for the king. A flat sheet and pillow case are also available.
