Formerly known as LNBF, Terrera is an ecocentric lifestyle brand that specializes in “thoughtful, timeless, and comfortable styles for sustainably conscious people” and we absolutely love what they have to offer. It all started with the goal of creating environmentally conscious garments for them and if you are curious, Terrera means "Our Time On Earth”.
In addition to mindfully crafted, easy-to-wear garments designed by their women-led team, you will also find bamboo bedding, sheets, quilts, pillowcases, and more.
Their lovely Bamboo Sheet Sets are a great option for sustainable eco-friendly bedding — made from sustainable fabric, hypoallergenic, and luxuriously soft on skin.
They come in a number of lovely color options including charcoal, grey, mineral blue, pale rose, sky, taupe, and white.
Terrera fabrics & materials
For fabric, all of Terrera’s home and bedding products are made from certified organic materials, with Oeko-Tex 100 certifications, and low-impact dyes that are non-toxic and gentle on skin.
That means no toxic chemicals or mordants to fix the dye to the fabric. Their Bamboo Sheet Sets are made from certified organic viscose from bamboo.
Terrera Ethical sourcing
The bamboo used in these products is certified by OCIA and farmed without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Terrera also uses a closed-loop system capturing and recycling the water and chemicals involved when processing the bamboo.
To make their garments and bedding, Terrera partners with factories based in China which are audited to ensure high standards for workers’ protection, health and safety, and ethical workplace conditions. To reduce the environmental footprint associated with transportation, Terrera's products are slowly shipped to Canada by sea.
Terrera Corporate Responsibility
Terrera also gives back. Every year, the brand hosts its own Earth Awards where leading Canadian women are celebrated and rewarded with a grant to support community initiatives or projects related to fostering a sustainable world for future generations.
Their charitable endeavors don't end there and include support for organizations and charities like the YWCA, Sanctuary Toronto, and Urban Promise, to name a few.
Review: I got to try Terrera’s bamboo sheets a few years ago and they were softer than I could ever imagine. It was like sleeping on a cloud. It one of the many benefits of bamboo fabric. It’s way softer than any of my cotton sheets. I also found they did a great job and keeping us cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Highly recommend!
2. Last Light
Last Light offers a collection of gorgeous linen bedding. Focused on timeless details, craftsmanship, and natural colors inspired by the beach.
Last Light’s organic linen bedding is meant to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is also hypoallergenic, and antibacterial, and maintains that fresh, crisp feel we all know and love.
I also really love the fact that you can save by buying a full set as opposed to buying each item separately. I've got the Full Set with Envelope Pillow Cases, and it's the best edition to my home!
Last Light also offers a stunning range of duvet covers, fitted sheets, flat sheets, pillowcases, quilts, robes and even beautiful bedding for your little ones.
If you are looking to amp up your kitchen decor, you can choose from a range of linen and rustic linen (my fav) napkins and towels. Oh, and if you are looking for the perfect beach bag or market bag, they have those too! And I want one of each!
Last Light's fabrics & materials
Their stone-washed linen bedding collection is made of 100% linen and dyed with Oeko-Tex-certified non-toxic dyes. You can choose from a range of gorgeous colors, bleached white (to die for), a gorgeous driftwood gray, a navy, shell, fog (off-white), and stunning storm.
The flax is premium grade and is typically grown in France & Belgium. It is spun into yarns in Italy and woven and sewn at a centuries-old mill in Portugal that has been family-run for several generations. The brand's founder has visited the mill many times and says it’s a beautiful, well-run facility.
The linen is Oeko-Tex certified so no harmful dyes are used.
Flax is also a low-irrigation crop, so it requires little to no water use, and no pesticides or fertilizers. Linen is a natural material so it’s biodegradable, too.
Last Light's Ethical sourcing
Their linen is sourced from premium-grade flax in Western Europe which is then spun in Italy, and later woven in Portugal by a family-run factory.
Since linen is made of flax, which requires little to no irrigation and fertilizers (compared to conventional cotton), it is considered a more ethical alternative.
Last Light's Corporate responsibility
Last Light natural bedding is designed to last and can be passed down for generations with proper care. They are working on a take-back/second life program for the linen, which is going to roll out in 2023.
Review: I have a set in my home and I honestly can’t say enough about how this fabric feels on the skin. Even my hubby mentioned it. It’s luxurious, soft, and simply divine! You can really feel the quality and luxury of this bedding (trust me — you will want to stay in bed!).
Time to cuddle up with Camelus and its beautiful range of eco-friendly bedding. The Camelus difference is found in the type of wool they use. Wool, as we know, is one of nature's best insulating materials and it typically comes from sheep... But have you ever heard of camel wool?
Camel wool has some serious clout. The fibers that are produced by camels are much longer than sheep fibers, which makes them much more durable. The threads of camel wool are also hollow, which means your duvet will be more lightweight and ultra-insulating.
Excellent at regulating temperature, camel wool is also hypoallergenic, naturally moisture-wicking, dust-mite resistant, and a really great natural fire retardant. This is a really important point as most synthetic bedding contains harmful fire retardants that can off-gas in the home and contribute to indoor air pollution.
Camelus' fabrics and materials
The filling in all of their duvets is made with 100% camel hair and the outer shell is 100% organic quilted cotton. All of their fabrics are OEKO-TEX certified, which means there are no harmful chemicals used. Unlike synthetic materials, when wool reaches its end of life, it can be composted. The brand adds that:
"Living in the fridge climate of the Gobi Desert, the Bactrian camels have adapted for survival, resulting in the long and lustrous hair that is highly sought after. The hair is gathered by hand when the animals molt during the six to eight-weeklong molting season during the Spring."
If you have an allergic reaction to sheep's wool, a camel blanket it's your best option. Due to the high content of lanolin, the material has antibacterial properties. In addition, such wool does not electrify, which means it doesn't attract dust particles.
The difference between camel down and wool is that the first material is soft and pleasant to the touch, while the other is rough and prickly. Camel down is a camel's undercoat, which prevents hypothermia. This material is often used to make baby blankets.
Wool, on the other hand, is the outer coat that protects the animal from damage. Despite the different tactile sensations, both fibers have good thermal conductivity and hygroscopicity.
The benefits of these duvets include:
- low risk of developing allergies
- one of the highest rates of thermal conductivity among all-natural materials, allowing a person to instantly warm-up
- environmental friendliness
- light healing effect: the blanket warms sore joints and massages the skin, accelerating blood flow
- good wear resistance: the duvet will last you at least 10 years, and with careful use, it can even last for several decades without losing its properties.
- Camel wool is a more environmentally friendly material than sheepskin because it does not lend itself to any chemical treatment or dyeing, so these blankets are suitable even for babies
Camelus' Ethical Sourcing
Wool from camels is really interesting since they live in the desert there are no synthetic pesticides present and do not release any chemicals when manufactured. In contrast, when polyester is manufactured, it releases pollutants into the air. The Camelus team collects the wool for their duvets in Central Asia and the blankets are made in Kazakhstan.
The Bactrian camel is one of the only ones that naturally sheds its hair, which makes it unnecessary to restrain them during the harvesting process. This limits the chances the animals will be injured or experience trauma while sourcing the wool.
Camelus' Corporate Responsibility
Camelus is striving to use natural content and harmless technologies application in everything they do. They carefully select their vendors, materials, and other resources. Ethics, quality, equality, and sustainability are the main factors for their operations and overall management of the company.
All of their camel wool duvet products are packaged in an easy-to-carry reusable bag, which can double as gift packaging.

Did you know that choosing sustainable bedding brands will help you sleep better?
A lot of the bedding available on the market is made of synthetic fibers or conventional cotton. While the latter might seem like a good alternative, conventional cotton is grown using a lot of water, pesticides, and other chemicals. Simply switching to organic cotton can save about 90% of the water required just to grow conventional cotton. Insane, right?!
From the price to the chemicals, buying new eco friendly bedding can be a nightmare, and shopping for a "natural" or "organic" one will definitely NOT have you sleeping easy.
In fact, it's one of the hardest areas in the home to green and that's thanks to a number of chemicals that are added to most bedding products. These include perfumes, flame retardants, toxic dyes, stain guards, and more.
Most of these substances are toxic to the planet and give off VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the air you breathe while you are sleeping. Um, NO!
But the good news is that I've curated the best, most sustainable, and eco-friendly bedding for you here. So go ahead and rest your head... Sustainable slumber is totally doable.
What criteria do we use when choosing eco friendly sustainable bedding?
So for bedding (just like I do for sustainable and ethical fashion), I consider the most and least sustainable fabrics and materials. From there, I identify the best brands possible based on their sourcing practices and corporate responsibility.
So whether I am looking for eco-friendly shower curtains, ethical pyjamas, sustainable jewelry, or ethical bedding, these criteria help me make informed decisions about the brands that I choose to share with you. And you can use them too to help make informed choices of your own.
1. What kinds of materials and fabrics are being used?
When looking for the best fabrics and materials, consider what the most sustainable options are and then look for certifications that can verify the product.
After considering the materials, you then want to look out for corresponding certifications like:
- Better Cotton Standard
- Fair Trade
- Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
- Oeko-Tex 100
- Organic Content Standard (OCS)
- USDA-Certified Organic
2. Are the materials ethically sourced?
Sourcing also plays a key role when it comes to sustainable bedding, as it does with the sustainability of any product. In order to be sustainable, brands must ensure that sustainable practices and standards are upheld throughout their supply chain, all the way to the manufacturing processes and labor involved throughout their operations.
This includes how textiles are produced and manufactured, labor standards, and wages. Also considered are the certifications their products and factories carry, and the level of transparency surrounding their production.
3. What's the brand's corporate responsibility?
Finally, I consider corporate responsibility as it is a good way of knowing how committed companies are to sustainability. Generally, it refers to practices, policies, or initiatives aimed at improving the company’s social, economic, and environmental impact.
I look for initiatives like carbon offsets and plastic-free shipping for water conservation and employee welfare. It’s always better to support brands who are truly invested in providing all-around sustainably and ethically produced products where we can find them.
A final word on eco friendly sustainable bedding brands
If you’re looking to skip the synthetic fabrics and blends, harmful chemicals, and unethical practices, these sustainable bedding brands are here to help. From stone-washed linen and organic hemp to good old organic cotton or even organic flannel, I hope this will help you find healthier sleep, even if you opt to shop elsewhere.
