We’ve started making pillow cases after requests from many Bright parents. The size will be 39cm x 24.5cm. If you require a different size please email us at info@brightbabybedding.com to order a custom size and you will be quoted accordingly.

Yes we hope so! We can offer a custom service with our Bright Organic fabric. Please email us at info@brightbabybedding.com with your mattress length and width in either cm or inches and we will reply with a quote. Please note we are limited by our material width which is why we cannot make adult bedding.

Organic

Bright Organic sheets are custom made to order, whereas our Bright Cotton sheets are pre-made and ready for shipment immediately.

We look all over the world to source the best organic fabric. We are very picky about the quality and trendiness of the prints. Currently all of our organic fabric in purchased from US companies and we have copies of the organic certifications.

Organic cotton has a low-impact on the environment and handlers. It is grown and harvested by methods that do not use toxic pesticides, herbacides, fertilizers or defoliants. It relies on natural methods which includes (but is not limited to) crop rotation and cow manure for soil fertility; beneficial predator insects; lengthened growing periods for natural defoliation; and hand-picking, which results in less waste. The statistics from various countries on the health issues of the farmers and handlers of chemically treated crops are startling. The health benefits of organically grown cotton are clear, as are the environmental aspects: reduced toxins and pollutants which infiltrate both the soil and water systems and consequently all living things. It might also be interesting to know also that the cottonseed meal, which is a byproduct of the ginning process, including that of chemically treated cotton, is fed to livestock and can come to us in the form of cottonseed oil in our foods.

The information noted above may already convince you of the overall health benefits to our world and the people who process the cotton, but there are aspects of the chemically treated fabric production process which are perhaps less obvious: Most often, chlorine is used to whiten the fibers after weaving; sodium hydroxide is then used to scour or wash the fabric; then it is dyed or printed, typically with the use of formaldehyde fixing agents; finally, there is often the presence of the resin based urea-formaldehyde which is applied in the finishing process and which is heat bonded to cotton fiber for permanent adhesion to reduce shrinkage. This final product in all of its chemical-laden existence, is shipped directly to mills and to consumers.

Like most cottons, gentle washing preserves color and fibers longer. We recommend machine wash cold with like colors in a gentle cycle. Non-chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry low and remove promptly to avoid wrinkling. Warm iron if needed.

Like any cotton fabric, repeated washings will fade color. Often times you will see the darkest shades fade more quickly. By following our recommended washing instructions, you are sure to get the standard color life. Hand washing and line drying (out of direct sunlight) will only increase color longevity.
