Namaste have travelled the world and selected only the finest in fair trade bedding, bedspreads, duvets, and pillow cases, all made from natural cotton, sourced from India. Rich florals and traditional patterning come to life through seasonal colour palettes, cool blues, and eye-catching multi-coloured print-work. All of Namaste's duvet covers and pillow cases are block printed by hand, using ancient techniques. This involves hand-carved wooden blocks being used to print the design in sections, each colour needing its own block. It’s the earliest, simplest, and slowest of all textile printing techniques, but it’s unmatched in terms of the rich and dynamic results.
Crafted from 100% cotton, Namaste's ethical bedding is as natural as it is beautiful. Cotton is breathable, hypoallergenic, long-lasting, draws moisture away from the skin, and has the ability to keep you warm when the autumn chill has set in, whilst keeping you cool during the most stifling of nights. The cotton used to weave and stitch these bedspreads and duvet sets is all sourced from traditional cotton farms in India, where it is planted, nurtured, and harvested by hand.
