“The majority of dyes and the majority of textiles today, I would say more than 90%, contain products that come from the petroleum industry. A lot of those chemicals are readily available because they’re cheap. Most colours are made from heavy metals, coal tar and by-products of the petroleum industry. So right now we buy a lot of organic cotton clothes but then they are dyed with a toxic substance that stems from the petroleum industry, even though you think you make conscious fashion choices, this is all that you know because that’s all that is declared on the label.”

AIZOME crafts luxuriously soft, healthy bedding, made entirely from plants. Using the magic of sound (ultrasound, that is) AIZOME has revived the lost art of plant dye for a modern, global market, infusing 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton with the pigment and properties of ancient medicinal herbs to create the naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic, skin-soothing sheets that are durable, colorfast, and free from all synthetics and toxins, from seed to sheet. Michel and his partner (and AIZOME co-founder) Misa first began to ask questions about the true nature of textile dye after Michel’s mother, bedridden with cancer, developed a painful reaction to the synthetic dyes in her bedsheets. Inspired by ancient Japanese craftsmanship and holistic wisdom, AIZOME’s patent-pending technology enables them to produce uncompromisingly healthy, consciously sustainable textile which has been recognized by the National Eczema Association as an innovative product bringing benefit and improving quality of life for individuals suffering from eczema and sensitive skin. But considering we spend 1/3 of our lives in bed and the textile industry is one of the most polluting in the world, these silky-soft sheets, free from petrochemicals, toxins, and allergens, offer deeply nourishing, worry-free sleep for anyone looking to support their health and lessen their impact.
