These organic cotton bed linens, throws and towels are sooooo yummy looking--it is enough to make you want to throw out, oops recycle, everything that you own now. The fabrics are organic cotton, environmentally-friendly linens and silks, and pure wools, including pashmina, merino and angora. The cotton is grown by rural communities in developing countries.
Luma works very closely with factories in India and Peru that have fair trade practices and with small farming communities, cooperatives, and companies supporting traditional skills. The bedding is luxurious, but reasonably priced. The throws (pictured) are made by a cooperative of women weavers in Northern India and the blankets are hand spun and woven in a valley on the edge of the Himalayas. Each comes with a handmade label showing the name and village of the weaver. The cushions are hand embroidered, using hand-quilted vintage fabrics and hand-woven wild silk and linen. And surprisingly, not that expensive, given their luxurious and fine look. The children’s pillow cases, towels and baby blankets are pure organic cotton and beautifully hand-embroidered with charming details of little bunny rabbits, flowers and birds. :: Luma
