We never talk about duvet covers enough! They are essential to add a final touch to the decor of our bedroom. In addition to being an element of comfort, they reflect our personality and our style. So, what are the current trends in sustainable design and materials for duvet covers? This is what we will discover together in this article!
I. Design trends
Fashionable, trendy patterns and colors
Geometric and abstract patterns : They are everywhere and add pep to our bed. Triangles, diamonds or abstract shapes, that's for sure, you won't get bored with these designs!
Floral and botanical inspirations : They bring a touch of freshness and nature to our bedroom. We love the foliage and flowers, which make us want to escape.
Neutral colors and pastel shades : They are ideal for creating a soft and soothing atmosphere. Greys, beiges and pastels are our allies for a harmonious cocoon.
Focus on popular styles
Minimalist and refined style : We say “yes” to simplicity with plain duvet covers or with discreet patterns. The key word here is sobriety.
Bohemian and ethnic style : We travel with exotic patterns, fringes and pompoms. Boho style duvet covers transport us into a warm and colorful world.
Vintage and retro style : We take a leap into the past with duvet covers with patterns from yesteryear. Flowers, polka dots and stripes remind us of good times.
II. Sustainable and ecological materials
Organic cotton: an ethical choice
The advantages of organic cotton for the environment : It is grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, which preserves soil and water tables. In addition, its cultivation consumes less water than that of conventional cotton.
Certifications and quality labels : To be sure of buying an organic cotton duvet cover, we check that it has labels such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) or OEKO-TEX.
Linen and hemp: two sustainable allies
Ecological and thermoregulatory properties : These two materials are naturally biodegradable and have thermoregulatory properties. They keep us warm in winter and cool in summer!
The durability and resistance of these materials : Linen and hemp are very resistant
and soften over time. A linen or hemp duvet cover can last for years, and that's good for our wallet and for the planet!
Ethical and recycled alternatives
Bamboo and lyocell (Tencel) fibers : They are soft, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. Bamboo grows quickly and without pesticides, while lyocell is made from wood pulp in an eco-friendly way.
Duvet covers made from recycled materials : We think, for example, of duvet covers made from recycled polyester. They help reduce our ecological footprint by recovering waste.
