Rustic yet elegant. Substantial but soft. Safe + sustainable!

To say Coyuchi is our faaaavorite organic linen company would not be stretch. In fact, we used to partner with them when we owned our retail store, Green Nest, because we wanted to offer our clients the very best in sustainable home furnishings; those that respect our natural surroundings and enhance lives. And, if you read our post on non-toxic shower curtains, then likely you’ve already drooled over the numerous and healthy options available to replace your traditional and oh-so toxic, PVC-laden variety. And, now it’s your turn to discover why our love affair has lasted 8 years. Not one…but TWO lucky winners will adorn their bedroom or bath with the luxuriousness of Coyuchi’s organic linens. Will it be you snapping selfies of your new duvet and shams or towel drying off with your new set of organics (um, please keep it PG rated)? Enter below now.

What We Love:

Coyuchi was founded over 20 years ago in Point Reyes Station, a small town on the Northern California coast. There, surrounded by ocean, forest, beach and bluff, Coyuchi’s “aesthetic ecosystem” philosophy of design was born, leading to a line of home textiles rooted in the innate qualities of nature.  This rustically sophisticated style has become the hallmark of Coyuchi, with every product, color and detail designed to fit harmoniously and evolve repeatedly, for effortless mixing of colors and textures from room to room and season to season.

Their Promise to Us:

We design all of our products with reverence for the planet—using only natural fibers, sourcing our materials carefully and processing them minimally—so our cotton truly feels like cotton, our linen feels like linen, our wool feels like wool.~Coyuchi

They truly do take expert care to ensure that everything that bears the Coyuchi label is produced and processed to the strictest environmental standards in safe and humane conditions, from the farm to the factory to the store to your home.

Proof’s in the Certifications! 

Coyuchi relies on guidelines such as those set by the USDA National Organic Program, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) and the International Labor Organization to guarantee our products meet these goals. Take a sneak peek at what makes Coyuchi a brand we’re proud to recommend.

Did You Know?

  • Coyuchi is the first company to bring organic cotton bedding to the United States, and in 2013 became the Coy_Prf_Wrm_Gry (2) 250w first home textile brand in the U.S. to receive GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certification as a company.
  • Coyuchi products are produced using organic and natural fibers, free of the toxic dies, bleaches and finishes used in conventional textiles. Coyuchi relies on guidelines such as those set by the USDA National Organic Program, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) and the International Labor Organization.
  • All Coyuchi cotton is 100% organic, and they’ve added organic wool to the line as well. Additional fabrics use only natural fibers, all of which are produced using a nontoxic production process audited by internationally recognized organizations.

Isn’t it time to rejuvenate your—body, mind and spirit—to help you turn your home into a unique and personal sanctuary? Not one, but TWO lucky winners will get the chance to customize their very own organic duvet and matching shams set or an organic towel set including: 2 bath towels, 2 guest towels, 2 washcloths (your color choice) valued over $530.00!

I have heard coyuchi is no longer using certified organic cotton and dropped thier fairtrade certification. How can you support them?

Reply

Ron & Lisa September 18, 2014 at 5:56 pm

Hello Lannie~
Thank you for your inquiry and NO…we wouldn’t support an ‘organic’ linen company if they weren’t actually using organic linens. So, we went directly to the source to clarify your concern and here is the company’s response which I’m sure will settle any mis-information which may be out there and confusing to others:
“Thanks so much for forwarding these questions. All of our cotton is certified organic cotton by the USDA. Our production process (the actual act of manufacturing our product) is certified by either GOTS (global organic textile standard) or Oeko-Tex.
We recently became the first home textile company in the U.S. To achieve GOTS certification as a company. GOTS certification not only requires certified organic cotton as the source fiber, but then goes on the certify that the production process meets strict standards in relationship to chemical use, has a social component, and regulations regarding employee compensation.

As the company has become larger and we have diversified the factories in which we produce product our assortment is no longer certified fair trade. Worker conditions and compensation are components of GOTS and Oeko-Tex certification. This overlaps with fair trade certification efforts which is why we have not pursued fair trade certification in addition to GOTS/Oeko-Tex certifications up to this point. I will say that consumers don’t seem to be aware of that aspect of GOTS and Oeko-Tex so we are reconsidering that certification, despite the fact that they are already covered with GOTS / Oeko-Tex.”

We hope this helps!

Ever since Christine Nielsen left coyuchi, their products have gone way down the hill. Glow Organics is the closest I’ve found to the original quality. Very overpriced too.

Which items in particular have you experienced this with? I’m curious b/c (as stated above) we owned a retail store for 6 years and extensively sold their line. Today, we personally use their towels, throws, dishcloths, baby items (as gifts) and bed linens and have not noticed a drop in quality. Yes, they are more expensive than say – non certified organic linens – but you pay for that quality and certifications (same with mattresses).
