Organic Cotton vs. Traditional Cotton

Cotton is the most widely used fiber in the world, but when cotton is grown using traditional methods it is exposed to numerous toxic chemicals and pesticides. These chemicals not only harm the environment, but also those who grow, process, or use cotton products. Toxic chemicals and pesticides also weaken the cotton fibers.

By growing cotton organically, the cotton fiber grows stronger because the plant must defend itself against pests naturally. Organically grown cotton is better for the environment and for anyone exposed to it.
Consumers often wonder if the higher cost of organically grown cotton is worth the extra money they have to pay. The answer is yes! Organically grown cotton has stronger fibers, producing products with longer durability versus the goods made from traditionally grown crops. By having products that are more durable, not only do you as the consumer save money, but the environment benefits from fewer toxins in the ground and air.

We are continuously exposed to toxins every day in almost all aspects of our lives.  To have clothing, linens and other personal use products that are toxin free is a very important  health  factor. By choosing organic products, you reduce the level of toxins your body is exposed to. A great way to do that is by using organic cotton products in your home.

When it comes to purchasing organic textile products, Are Naturals carries one of the finest selections of bedding, towels, robes and slippers available in today’s market. Are Naturals’ organic cotton products are made with natural or low-impact dyes and do not contain any chemicals or fertilizers, which are harmful to you and the environment. In order to surround yourself with true comfort, when bathing or relaxing, why not use organic products? They are not only pleasing to the eye, but also smooth and soft to the touch. Plus, organically grown products are durable and made to last.  

Bed sheets and Bed Linens

Did you know that we spend almost one-third of our lives in bed?  Why choose organic cotton bedding?  Pure cotton sheets are better than synthetic fibers or blends because they breathe better. At Are Naturals, our 100% organic cotton sheets are woven with the highest quality organic cotton yarn, making these sheets the softest material you will ever sleep on. Their high thread counts make them exceptionally smooth and relaxing.

 Available in a rainbow of colors, designs, and textures, Are Naturals organic cotton sheets are an excellent bedding choice for style and accent the décor of any room. All of our sheets are finished with elegant hems and deep pockets so they easily fit any style mattress. 

Whether you prefer the fresh crispness of percale, velvety smoothness of sateen, or the brushed softness of flannel, Are Naturals offers a variety of bedding styles. Perhaps you would prefer the texturally different diamond weave/ pin tucks or the t-shirt comfort of jersey. Are Naturals carries the styles of bed sheets that offer year round sleeping comfort for whatever your need may be.

No bed set is complete without coverings and pillows. Are Naturals offers a variety of Eco-friendly sleepers, such as warm woven blankets or fluffy duvets.  If you prefer something a little heavier, how about an all-cotton fabric/ cotton filled quilt?  Simply add one of Are Naturals’ many different 100% cotton pillows styles to complete your bedroom.

Bath Linens

When it comes to choosing bath towels, most of us want not only plush and soft, but also super absorbency. We all like to feel pampered in spa-style fashion. Are Naturals offers organic cotton towels  that are soft and absorbent, while still durable.

For a truly Eco-friendly bath, why not add an organic cotton bath mat or shower curtain? Organic cotton bath mats are more absorbent than synthetic blends.
