Organic Cotton Bedding & Linens
Our organic cotton bed linens are designed and manufactured in Vancouver, BC, on the west coast of Canada. Founded in 1981, Dream Designs is the only established brand of organic cotton bed linens that's manufactured in North America. We source premium certified organic cotton worldwide and stock the fabrics in large bolts at our production warehouse in Vancouver. Each item is cut, sewn, and packaged in small batches by hand with meticulous attention to details.
Manufacturing in North America gives us great assurance over quality and labor conditions, and minimizes waste associated with mass production. It also allows us to produce custom orders and provide better after sale service.
Cotton is one of the most widely used plants of our times, but also one of the most chemically laden. A whole pound of chemical, in the form of fertilizer, insecticide, and pesticide, is required to grow every three pounds of conventional cotton that can be made into a queen size sheet set or a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. These toxic chemicals contaminate our environment, and are linked to asthma, allergies, cancers, and other health problems.
Organic cotton farming differs from conventional cotton in that it does not use toxic chemicals or genetic modification practices. Organic cotton is also grown with more care and attention because of the small scale of organic cotton farms. Currently organic cotton is grown in 22 countries worldwide, but accounts for approximately only 1% of cotton produced globally.
