Many years ago I set out to buy my very first set of bed linen. A very grown up moment. I had visions of a calm, clean space and lots of white. Tranquility. Sadly the early 90’s preferred patterns. I had ASSUMED it would be simple. Silly me. A bit like the basic white T-shirt, classic red lipstick or luscious strawberry perhaps ….
Sourcing white, organic cotton, sheeting fabric is similarly proving trickier than I had anticipated. Admittedly my check list is a little longer now …. cotton grown in an appropriate climate, woven in a fair trade environment, available in “boutique” quantities, a supplier I can communicate with …. and of course all at a price that adds up! Several times I thought it was sorted but the search continues ….
Ever searched for something “simple” that turned out to be frustratingly elusive???
