Eco Home: Coverlet, Bed Skirt and Mattress Topper from Terra 20

Leave a comment

A little while back we were in desperate need for some new bedding for our king sized Natura bed which we bought in March. So I took advantage of a sale at Terra 20 and bought some lovely new bedding.

Kassatex, Bamboo Coverlet in Chocolate, King Size

Materials: 6% rayon made from bamboo and 4% organic cotton

I love it when I don’t have to worry about airing out my blankets or sheets when I buy organic cotton. I used to get really nasty headaches when I encountered anything with that “newness” smell so many people love and don’t realize that’s actually the smell of carcinogenic chemicals. Well, this coverlet was perfect for use in those transitional seasons like spring when it’s too cold to just use light sheets and too warm to use heavy comforters. Hubby really likes this coverlet as it feels cool to his skin and he overheats easily. I personally didn’t like the texture against my skin (it feels scratchy to me), but I do love the look and the fact that I can use it as an extra layer of warmth.

Cost: $250.00 CAD (regular price), $74.99 (sale price)

Kassatex, White Stripe Bed Skirt, King Size

Materials: 6% rayon made from bamboo and 4% organic cotton

Bed skirts are nice little things great for hiding the stuff you store underneath your bed! I’m kind of kidding, but in all seriousness there is sometimes a lot of storage space under your bed that you can take advantage of. Also, I find a bed skirt helps finish the look of the bed, presenting a tidy and neat appearance. Dust bunnies could be hiding under your bed but no one but you will know! Anyway, I can see this bed skirt lasting us a very long, long time. The fabric has a bit of sheen on the striping and a nice stitched seam on the bottom for a bit of detail.

Natura, Organic Cotton Mattress Pad

Materials: Free of chemicals, pesticides and dyes, certified 1% organic cotton fill, unbleached, 1% organic cotton, sateen cover and fill

What can I say? I like Natura‘s products. We got this mattress pad to add to the comfort of our Firm Top Natura bed. The mattress pad is sturdily constructed. I checked the seams and it is sewn pretty well. It also wraps a bit under the mattress for full coverage on the top and sides of your bed. The fabric also feels smooth, and soft to touch. I personally find the bed a bit too firm so hubby and I agreed that a mattress pad would help make it softer for me. Hubby ended up liking the mattress pad as well, saying that it helps him sleep better. I’m sleeping better as well with the mattress pad. I got it at a great price too. Apparently this mattress pad is being discontinued to don’t be surprised if it disappears from the Terra 20 website after a while.

Cost: $348.00 CAD (regular price), $99.99 (sale price)
