Struggling to find bedding sets that are equally cozy, safe, and stunning? We’ve got you covered — literally. Check out our top picks of the best organic bedding on the market, plus tips to narrow down your search and other safety certifications to seek. Say “good night” to poorly made bedding and “hello” to the best affordable organic sheet sets available.

Qualities of the Best Organic Bedding

Finding gorgeous organic bedding bundles is only half the struggle. But the best organic bedding options offer so much more than just a certification. So, how do you know you’re truly getting the cream of the crop? Keep an eye out for these green flags as you shop:

  • Ethical company values.Supporting companies committed to global citizenship proves they put their money where their mouth is. Read about the businesses you’re buying from, and sleep with a clear conscience, knowing their morals align with yours.
  • Traditional weaving practices. Loom weaving is an art passed down through generations. Techniques, mediums, and patterns vary across cultures, offering an incredible alternative to fast fashion. When you support these practices, you’re helping to maintain rich historical traditions. Now that’s something to feel good about.
  • Prime thread count. Thread count is a commonly misunderstood characteristic. Higher counts are not always superior, and if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Fair-trade garments. Fair-trade products ensure that producers are paid a fair wage for their work. And if you’re buying cotton, look for companies who partner with the Better Cotton Initiative: an organization fighting to improve cotton production conditions around the globe.

    Other Textile Certifications to Seek

    We know that organic designation is super important — and for good reasons! However, there’s more to the story. Organic certifications in the textile world only refer to the plant’s growing process. While the standards for organic agriculture are pretty high, they can all go to waste post-harvest. The dirty little secret of textile production is that certification bodies like the USDA don’t monitor manufacturing, so anything goes once materials are off the farm. Yep, you have no idea what harmful additives may be used in your “organic” bedding. Luckily, other certification bodies do account for this gap.

    Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

    Organizations like the Global Organic Textile Standard (a.k.a. GOTS) hold rigorous processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading, and distribution standards. So when you see GOTS’ stamp of approval, you know that the textile met organic criteria through every stage of the supply chain. As a result, it’s the most trustworthy certification in the organic fabric market.

    Oeko-Tex Standard 100

    Instead of focusing on organic growing practices, Oeko-Tex’s Standard 100 certification ensures the overall safety of the final product. Oeko-Tex prohibits any potentially hazardous levels of substances potentially harmful to human health. While governing bodies often approve small quantities of toxic materials in goods (like mercury in fish, for example), the Standard 100’s thresholds are much stricter. Plus, Oeko-Tex goes above and beyond by testing for over 100 substances in your entire garment — not just the fabric — so you can trust that even the coating on your zippers is safe as can be.

    Best Affordable Organic Sheet Sets and Bedding Bundles

    Since such a small percentage of global textile production is organic, it can be challenging to find affordable options that feel luxurious. And while it’s true that investing in quality, organic garments pays off in the long run, we also believe in making them accessible up-front. So, here are the top four best affordable organic sheet sets and bedding bundles available.

    Best Oeko-Tex Certified Sheet Sets and Bedding Bundles

    Don’t overlook these incredible textiles just because they aren’t certified organic. Context matters! While crops like conventional cotton are notoriously toxin-laden and rough on the planet, others are naturally greener. Linen doesn’t need an organic label to qualify as a sustainable material. The eco-friendly flax plant calls for a fraction of cotton’s water quotas, grows impeccably in low-quality soil, and requires so few fertilizers (if any at all) that it nearly meets organic standards as is. Plus, it’s entirely biodegradable, quickly regenerates, and often meets its water needs purely through rainfall.  Like all of our fabrics, Or & Zon’s linen is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. Indulge in a safe and dreamy sleep with these best bedding sets:

  • Or & Zon Stonewashed Linen Sheet Sets
  • You’ve heard that you should launder your sheets weekly, right? Well, stonewashed linen turns that chore into a treat by growing softer with every single wash. And don’t worry about that new linen feel — that’s why they’re stonewashed! There’s no breaking-in period with these eco-friendly sheet sets. From day one, you’ll enjoy the familiar comfort that only vintage (or stonewashed) linen can offer. Find our Oeko-Tex stonewashed linen sheet sets in four cozy shades and queen or king sizes. Every bundle includes a deep pocket fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases. 

  • Or & Zon Stonewashed Linen Bedding Sets
  • There’s a reason you feel calmer when cozied up in linen bedding. Microscopic breaks in the textile bring a massage-like sensation to your overall sleep experience. Plus, the airy fabric regulates your temperature in any climate, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. And you certainly don’t have to worry about longevity. Linen is two times stronger than cotton, meaning you’ll enjoy countless dreams in your bedding haven. Curl up with our all-inclusive bedding bundle complete with a duvet cover, 15-inch deep fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases. Select from queen or king sizes, and choose your favorite of our four rich colors.
