Can we have cotton bed linen that feels fresh day after day, and looks good straight out of the washing machine?

WE LOVE:

  • Crisp and fresh bed linen
  • Enjoying our time doing things we like rather than ironing

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • … Most easy-to-iron effects require a resin application that often contains formaldehyde, which may cause cancer *
  • … and most anti-odor agents can content biocides, which reduce the living organisms** even the ones we need in our environment
