Today, I want to go back to the company I first wrote about in 2018 when they launched sustainable white cotton bedding at an affordable price. prosperity and decline It was founded with the goal of cutting all the noise around bed linen and getting rid of it by removing the elements necessary for its core part: sleep. At the time they were very clear about sticking to the basics before expanding. And now, in addition to adding organic cotton and cashmere to our collection, we are pleased to announce that we have added 100% European flax linen in rich, warm colors.
Initially we only offered white cotton in satin or percale (you can see the difference between the two in our previous post) but now you can buy them in sets (prices start at £155 and are more affordable). ), and can now be combined. Choose from a variety of colors to create your own bespoke bedding.
We have styled some of the images you can see here. You can see that the linen is very soft. Apparently it has been “garment washed” for a more comfortable sleep. I slept on scratchy linen. The manufacturer said it would soften over time, but there’s a limit to how many uncomfortable nights you’ll have to spend while waiting. But the Rise & Fall bedding was soft right out of the linen bag it came in.
Linen is the most sustainable and durable European flax linen, the factory where linen is made is wind-powered and recycles 99% of the water used in the manufacturing process via a large rooftop rainwater tank. increase. The largely female workforce also has unlimited access to education.
Additionally, Rise & Fall only orders small quantities to reduce waste, but has a model that allows you to reorder as many times as needed.
Co-Founder Jed Coleman said: “Our unique supply chain creates far greater value for our customers as well as our manufacturing partners. We seek relentlessly lower prices (50-80%) than our closest competitors to maintain comparable quality. “
Now about the bedding itself, the sheets are deep so if you have a topper (we have one too) it won’t pop out in the corners. Also, this is a small detail, but what I really appreciate is that you label the short side of the fitted sheet so you don’t make a mistake. And let’s be honest, it’s hard enough to incorporate a reluctant duvet into the cover without twirling around the bed to determine which end is which.
As you may know, linen is inherently thicker than cotton, which makes it more durable and lasts longer without tearing. It’s also hypoallergenic and breathable, allowing you to better regulate your skin’s temperature. It can also retain moisture before it feels damp. So, frankly, on hot summer nights, it absorbs sweat so you can stay cool and sleep better.
In addition to the bedding featured here, we also have dark and light blue, pinstripes (which look great as base sheets in all colors), and coordinating bolsters and throws (pictured above). Most of his cotton is GOT certified organic and cashmere, if you want his throws, are made in a factory certified to the Good Cashmere Standard which protects not only the environment but also the goats and the people who care for them. increase. Merino is certified by the Responsible Wool Standard and all manufacturers used by Rise & Fall adhere to Oeko-Tex 100 or Bluesign standards which remove all harsh chemicals from the process.
when you visit their website here You can see the factories they work with and I’m a fan of that level of transparency. Wool comforters and pillows are made in Yorkshire, and leather is made in Venice and Hong Kong.
prosperity and decline are working to build a collection they call Modern Everyday Classics: ten-year-old wool duvets, go-anywhere cashmere sweaters, and soft linen sheets that soften with every wash.
So take a look and see what you think. Also, I picked up the cat (she hated it) and laid her down on the bed for the shoot. Normally the cat would frown at her and walk away from me, but she stayed there for eight hours, just moving out of her son’s bed. Our bed for another mammoth skip. So it’s very endorsed by Enid.
