When you think about it, if the average person lives to be 75 years old and they sleep 8 hours of each day, then they stand to spend approximately a third of their life, or 25 years, sleeping. What this suggests is that those of us that get to rest our heads in a comfortable bed every night should have a serious think about what exactly we are placing against our skin for such a major part of our lives and whether what we currently have isn’t doing more harm than good.

At Bhumi, we supply organic cotton pillow cases as well as bed linen, bathroom products and apparel that are designed to bring a whole new level of comfort to Australians. You have for the vast majority of your life been using textile products that were made using non-organic cotton, and for those that suffer skin sensitivities as well as allergies, these can, in fact, contribute to your condition.
How Organic Cotton Can Transform Your Sleep
Those that have organic cotton fitted sheets and pillow cases and covers on their beds sleep far better than those that do not. If you wake up sneezing during the night or find that you itch a lot in bed this can disturb your sleep pattern and have an adverse effect on your mood.
One major benefit of organic cotton bedding is that it is a hypoallergenic choice that is free from chemicals. Where non-organic cotton alternatives can cause skin or respiratory reactions, you have no such concern with our products wrapped around you throughout the night.
Something that is often overlooked but which should not be understated is just how much more comfortable organic cotton bedding is. The absence of any treatments throughout the production process means that when you choose our products here at Bhumi, you will receive pillow cases and sheets that are much softer than anything you previously tried.
Even if you wash our sheets regularly and in the appropriate manner, that same level of comfort will hold up for far longer than your average run of the mill sheets, which means they will last you for so much longer. And, when the time comes to dispose of them, organic cotton products are biodegradable so you won’t be adding something harmful to the landfill.
Here at Bhumi, we don’t believe that chemicals, toxins or harmful dyes should be used in the manufacture of products that will ultimately be used by humans simply because adverse reactions can result from their contact with the skin. As such, we control our entire supply chain to ensure that no unethical practices or processes are undertaken at any point that compromise the integrity of our organic products, and no harm comes to those that work to deliver us the goods that we sell to our customers.
Ethical Solutions for a More Comfortable Home
All of our products are certified by Fair Trade Australia, so not only does your purchase guarantee you ethically sourced and produced goods of the highest quality, but it makes a contribution to a more sustainable future.
Those that in the market to buy pillow cases or cotton bath mats or any other materials for the bedroom or bathroom and who care about how their choices impact on the environment have found their perfect supplier right here at Bhumi. We appreciate your time, your interest in all things organic and we look forward to delivering our exceptional products no matter where you are in Australia free of charge.
Buy the Best Pillowcases with Our Guide
We spend so much time thinking about buying the right pillow to ensure we can get the best night’s sleep - is it soft enough, too firm or is it just right? So much thought goes into pillow purchases that it’s easy to overlook the essential part of pillow protection. The right pillowcase will not just ensure your pillow has a longer lifespan, but caring for your pillowcases properly will also help you to get a better night’s rest.
Here are the three most important things to consider when you buy pillowcases:
It’s All in the Fabric
Pillowcases are very similar to sheets in that there are a whole heap of different fabric types to choose from - both organic and synthetic. So when it comes to picking out your new pillowcases, you should decide on your fabric first, as it is essential in how long your new pillowcase will last and how comfortable it will be for you. For the best night’s sleep, we wouldn’t recommend anything other than high-quality, natural fibres that offer premium sleep and softness.
When it comes to choosing the fabric of your pillowcases, it can be tempting to go for the softness and comfort of materials like silk or polyester. However, they don’t have the same breathability as natural fibres, need more regular cleaning and tend to need to be replaced sooner. Cotton is such a versatile material and comes in a huge range of different weaves and that why we love this fabric so much. 100% cotton pillowcases will revolutionise your sleep and help you to wake up feeling comfortable and well rested.
Choosing the Size
Once you’ve decided on the perfect fabric for your pillowcases, you need to consider getting the right size. We’ve seen it all too often where people have purchased pillowcases that are too small or too large for the pillows that they already have at home. While many people think that there is only one size of pillow for your bed - they are mistaken; there are a number of different options for different bed sizes and for decorative pillows too. It’s essential that you know what size you pillow is before purchasing your pillowcases.
You want to ensure that the pillowcases that you buy go well with your current bedding or lounge decor. Choose pillowcase colours that compliment the rest of the items they will be in close proximity to. It’s also really important to think about the texture of your pillowcases - it’s always nice to have different textures for decorative pillows. However, when it comes to the pillows you’ll sleep on, you want to go for something that is soft and smooth and won’t leave marks on your face.
There is also a difference in the closures of your pillowcases; normal bed pillowcases are usually closed on three sides and then have an opening on one side to enable easy changing. However, some pillowcases close at the back and can have ties, overlaps or zippers - these are best for decorative pillows as opposed to the ones you are going to sleep on.
