What is eco-melange?

What is eco-mélange™, you ask? 

It's a patented process and name for a new fabric blend and look, made with bamboo and cotton threads woven together.  This special weave creates a casual, heathered effect that’s easy to layer, extremely comforting, and easy-care.  Many of today's consumers are desiring and eco-friendly bedding alternative to 100% cotton, but also want it to affordable, feel luxurious, and fit their busy lifestyle of needing easy-care products.   

eco-mélange™ is BPO safe and 100% bleachable!  

You don't need to worry that using BPO (benzoyl peroxide) on your face or body will stain the linens, as eco-mélange™ is BPO safe.  What can commonly happen is that the BPO in a facial cream will stain the pillowcase and create an orange-colored patch on the fabric, that does not come out.  This does not happen with eco-melange fabrics, AND they can be bleached, regardless of the color of the fabric!  This is a huge deal for those that either perspire, or have make up stains on the linens, and need to bleach the fabrics to remove stains.  Regardless of whether you purchase White eco-melange linens or a deeper color, they are 100% bleachable.     

Is eco-mélange™ expensive? 

It offers much the same quality and comforting feel as BedVoyage's 100% bamboo line, but at a lower price point that lets you dive into the bamboo pool and test the waters without causing damage to your pocketbook!  We have also created these linens without some of the bells and whistles that we add to our 100% bamboo line, in order to keep the price down.  We've designed the linens with envelope-enclosure pillowcases, no embroidery, buttons on the duvet opening, and not added the extra 12" of length to the flat sheet.  Those changes have allowed us to offer eco-melange products at a 40% lower price than our 100% bamboo linen line.    

We feel confident you’ll be talking about these sheets with your family and friends.  You can make your whole bed up with this casually elegant look, or layer them beautifully with our 100% bamboo Duvets, Coverlets and Shams.

How is eco-mélange™ made?  

eco-mélange™ is a patented water-less process of pre-dying the bamboo fibers, in any color you desire, and then weaving those dyed fibers with White cotton fibers, to create that textured-look, and a luxe lived-in feel.  

Much of industrial water pollution comes from textile dyeing and treatment, with 72 being very toxic, and 30 that cannot be removed by conventional methods. So offering a water-less dying method means saving all of that water, and the toxic chemicals that leak out into the waterways. A huge plus for the environment! 

The Bed Bundle:

We've studied how many people sleep these days, and have learned that many people are tossing their flat sheet. They feel that a flat sheet gets bunched up at the foot of the bed, causing them to remake the bed each morning, or it simply gets tangled around their arms or legs and is in the way, so they remove it.   What they prefer is just to use a Fitted Sheet, a Duvet Cover and a set of Pillowcases. So we listened, and we created the Bed Bundle just for those people!   Why buy a flat sheet when you don't use it, right? So now you can purchase a Queen or King Bed Bundle that has just the products you want, and nothing you don't!
