Sleep well in ethical sleepwear

Fall into slumber with a clear conscience when you wear the comfiest loungewear that does not inflict cruelty on the earth. We are talking about ethical sleepwear. Often, our focus is on dressing where everyone sees – but hey, if you are looking to live a sustainable lifestyle that helps the environment and less fortunate, you should be doing that while you sleep as well!

That is why we are introducing these brands to you!

VivaTerra is a brand famed for sustainable bedding and bath, encouraging people to live an eco-friendly lifestyle at home. Consider getting this elegant pyjama set that is soft and comfy, made from viscose derived from bamboo and a little bit of spandex for moveable comfort. It is available in two colours – cream and black.
Why is this sustainable?
Bamboo made viscose is good because it is made from bamboo; a plant that grows at a comparatively fast rate (as compared to other plants) that it can be harvested sustainably.

Sleep luxuriously in all things silk with a collection of silk items from The Ethical Silk Company. Their collections have different sets of prints made from block-printing in assorted deep or pastel colours. Each pyjama set is perfected with French seams, mother of pearl buttons and natural ivory piping.
Why is it sustainable?
All their items are tailored by a Fair Trade tailoring unit in Jaipur, India. They follow a strict protocol that protects the employee and the environment. Dyes used for their block-print are also low impact, AZO-free dyes. All water used in this process is also treated and recycled.
Not only that, The Ethical Silk Company donates 10% of the profits to charity.
No moths are harmed in the process of making the silk. They use mulberry silk production that extracts the silk from the cocoon after the moth has vacated it.


If you have been looking for a good pair of loungewear, don’t hesitate to go ethical with your purchase. Instead of supporting the big brands that “have it all together”, opt to be the solution to have something going for the underprivileged while saving the environment at the same time!
