Aizome Sheets Review

Aizome sheets

Aizome sheets are crafted through a meticulous process that emphasizes using natural materials and traditional techniques. Here’s a breakdown of the key stages:

1. Sourcing Organic Cotton:

    • Aizome uses GOTS-certified organic cotton, ensuring responsible farming practices and no harmful chemicals are used throughout the growth and processing. This cotton boasts superior softness and breathability compared to conventional cotton.

2. Natural Dyeing:

    • Instead of synthetic dyes, Aizome embraces traditional Japanese Aizome dyeing, utilizing medicinal herbs like indigo, nutgall, and madder root. These herbs not only imbue the sheets with unique, vibrant colors but also offer potential therapeutic benefits like promoting relaxation and reducing inflammation.

3. Dyeing Technique:

    • The Aizome process involves repeated immersion and oxidization cycles over several days. Each dip intensifies the color and imbues it deeper into the fabric’s fibers. This painstaking technique creates the characteristically rich and long-lasting hues of Aizome sheets.

4. Weaving and Finishing:

    • The dyed cotton is woven into luxurious fabrics like sateen or percale, offering different levels of smoothness and breathability. No harsh chemicals or finishes are used, preserving the cotton’s natural softness and hypoallergenic properties.

5. Quality Control:

    • Aizome prioritizes quality and sustainability throughout the production process. They partner with experienced dyers in Japan and China, upholding rigorous quality control standards. Additionally, they prioritize eco-friendly practices like water conservation and responsible waste management.

Ultimately, Aizome sheets represent a confluence of nature’s bounty and artisanal craftsmanship. Their commitment to organic materials, traditional techniques, and meticulous quality control sets them apart, offering a unique and potentially beneficial sleep experience.

Aizome sheets are dyed with indigo which is a plant-based dye that will give your sheets a blue tint. A basic queen size set which includes a top and bottom sheet along with two pillowcases retails for $272.

Overview of Aizome Bedding

Indigo has been around for thousands of years but for the last 100 years, most textiles including jeans are made with synthetic indigo. Synthetic indigo is made with Aniline which doesn’t seem all that great for humans. Natural indigo, on the other hand, seems to be safer and more sustainable. While making natural indigo sheets is more expensive, they look and feel better. You can order your Aizome sheets directly from the Aizome website. They will arrive in a box like the one below.
