What to Consider When Buying Bamboo Sheets

As we spend a third of our lives sleeping, the choice of material we put on our beds plays an important role on our health and wellbeing. Sheets are one of the most frequently used items in the home, so they deserve careful consideration when purchasing. At Eastwind Textiles we believe in bringing comfort, enjoyment and style to bedroom sheets.

Here’s how to ensure you make the right choice when selecting your bedding. 

Sleep Easy with the Right Thread Count & Weave.

Just like any other textile, the thread count and weave in Bamboo sheets can make a huge difference to feel, finish and longevity. It’s a very important consideration when shopping for bamboo sheets.

At Eastwind Textiles, we have designed our sheets with luxury and durability in mind. Our 100% organic bamboo sheets have a 400 thread count. This high-quality thread count is equivalent to a cotton thread count of 1,000. This, coupled with the sateen weave, provides a soft feel with a premium quality finish. The sateen weave, being one yarn over to three yarns under, is super strong and is less likely to pill than the twill weave. It’s woven using the closed-loop process, making them ultra-smooth to touch with no friction from uneven fabric. Sateen sheets have a reputation for luxury because of their silky feel, beautiful drape, and subtle lustre. But don’t let the plushness of bamboo fool you, this fabric is three times stronger than cotton and will last so very much longer. 

When it Comes to Fitted Sheets - Size Matters!

At Eastwind Textiles, we’ve considered deeply the perfect dimensions of our 100% organic bamboo Fitted Sheets.

We know there’s nothing more frustrating than a fitted sheet that doesn’t fit properly. We’ve made sure that our fitted sheets are designed to perfectly fit any depth mattress, even those with the thickest luxury pillow top.

Especially designed to be luxuriously soft, our lush bamboo sheet sets are generous in size so that your bedsheets are not constantly stretched out. This helps enormously when it’s time to change the change the sheets and make the bed. This also means they will snap tight under your mattress and prevent the fitted sheet slipping off.

The king, queen, double or king single bed fitted sheets have a depth of 43cm.

The single fitted sheets are 40cm deep, and our cot sheets are 20cm deep.

Choose an Environmentally Friendly Brand.

Bamboo is the fast-growing plant on the planet, it requires little to no irrigation and once harvested it regenerates quickly. No harmful chemicals are used in the growing process due to its natural antibacterial properties and crops of bamboo are great for the environment too as they produce more oxygen than trees and are highly sustainable.

At Eastwind Textiles we go a step further to ensure that the bamboo we select for our products is panda friendly. There are 42 species of bamboo which pandas eat, but none of these species are used in the production of our bamboo textiles. 

In addition, you can sleep comfortably knowing that our bamboo bedding is 100% Oeko Tex Certified. This reassures you that our sheets are completely free from harmful chemicals and substances that can be used in the manufacturing process. Further, it certifies that our manufacturer uses environmentally friendly and socially responsible conditions during the production of our luxury products.
