You might be suffering from a chemical allergy caused due to your quilts and pillows!

I don't want to sound alarming but most people don't even know that they might be suffering from a chemical allergy caused due to their quilts and pillows.
Most commercial dyes contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment. These include heavy metals (such as lead, mercury and cadmium), formaldehyde, quaternary ammonia compounds and petroleum distillates.
Our skin contains millions of pores that enables it to breathe. Your quilt is in contact with your skin for hours while you sleep and they are more likely to absorb chemicals from the quilt and linen.
The ingredients in these dyes can cause skin irritations and allergies. Some of the reactions may be mild like rashes or hives; some can be severe enough to require medical attention such as anaphylaxis. So, it is important to use quilts and bed linens that use toxic-free dyes that are better on your skin and doesn't cause you any skin problems.
Toxic-free dyes are not just good for you but it is also good for the environment as they are bio-degradable.
That's why we carefully choose toxic-free, natural plant based dyes to print our quilts. All our quilts are 100% handstitched by skilled artisans. This means that each quilt is unique and has its own story to tell about the people who made it. It also means that our products are more durable than machine-made items, and will last longer than their mass-produced counterparts. As a result of this handmade quality, you’ll find your newly adopted quilt to be softer and much more comfortable than any other blanket or bedspread you’ve ever used before!
