The funny thing about having a baby is all the things that suddenly become important to you. When you’re pregnant, you get into the habit of considering how everything you put in or on your body might affect the tiny life growing inside you. And when that baby is born, it doesn’t stop. Things that I never used to think much about are important now. Things like what’s in the food we eat, the air and soil around us, and in the products we buy. Now I look for eco-friendly, healthy, and non-toxic products for my family.
About 20 years ago, I bought a cotton futon for my first apartment from a little place in town. That little place has grown into Dream Designs, a local natural lifestyle business with a global mission, still based in my hometown of Vancouver, Canada. Their talented team of local designers and seamstresses work with premium organic and natural materials to create beautiful, durable, and eco-friendly textiles for the home including bath, bedding, sleepwear, and yoga accessories, all from their workshop here in Vancouver.
Founded in 1981 by Prince Edward Island transplant Irma McInnis, Dream Designs (then known as Dream Futon) started out producing cotton futon mattresses then expanded to other natural textiles, all aimed at providing organic and healthy products for the home. When Irma tragically lost her battle with pancreatic cancer, the torch was passed to Bei Linda Tang. Linda shares Irma’s vision for organic natural living, functional and stylish design, and sustainable business practices which made her perfect to take the helm.
Think about how much of your life you spend in bed. Shouldn’t that bed and those linens be as healthy as possible? Dream Designs has a wide selection of beautiful and healthy organic cotton bedding for the entire family. Responsibly made in Canada from 100% certified organic cotton, all Dream Designs bedding is healthy, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, comfortable, breathable, and durable.
Dream Designs’ signature 280 thread count organic cotton bed linens come in 21 beautiful nature-inspired colours.
Their sheet sets, duvet covers, pillow cases, and pillow shams are available in both smooth and damask stripe finishes, and in twin, double, queen, or king size. I love the contrast in textures and colours when you put them all together!
Dream Designs also carries a full selection of organic baby bedding in subtle nursery animal prints. Knowing that my baby is sleeping on healthy, lab tested non-toxic bedding makes me sleep better at night. Organic cotton means less pesticides and environmental damage, and a correspondingly healthier planet to pass along to my girls.
Don’t forget to take a look at their selection of organic cotton pajamas, sleepwear, and robes to make your entire sleep experience a healthier one.
