Cool Stuff: Raksha Bella Organic Bedding

Speaking of bedrooms, scrolling through images of these new textiles from Raksha Bella is making me very, very sleepy ...

Seriously, who wouldn't want to go back to bed and curl up in this beautiful bedding? Founded by Berkeley, California designer Carrie Peters, Raksha Bella just introduced a lovely collection of organic duvet covers, quilts, and pillowcases and shams.

Each piece, handmade by fair-trade workers in India from Indian-grown, certified-organic cotton, is subtly pattered using hand-carved blockprints of traditional Indian motifs and printed with low-impact dyes.

And if knowing that doesn't help you rest easier, I don't know what will.

Of course, sustainably produced products like these don't come cheap: Prices start at $89 to $123 for pillow- and sham-cover sets and go up to $311 to $439 for duvet covers and $442 to $491 for quilts.

See the entire Raksha Bella collection right here. (And if you're in the Bay Area, you can check out the bedding in person at these local shops.)

I saw these at Spring over the weekend and if I had the money one of those quilts would be on my bed right now. They're even nicer in person.

Omigosh my heart skipped a beat! These are gorgeous and of course way out of my price range :-)

I love these! I have a set of organic bedding from - but I'm looking to change it up! I'll have to make a trip to one of the stores!
