The most important area in your life to start, or continue, to make ethical purchases would be your bedroom. Unless you work from home, you are probably in your bedroom for the most hours of the day. Bedtime is especially important because at a very close proximity you are breathing in whatever your bedding is off-gassing. Below is a list of American made bedding products that we use, or have on our list of items to buy next list.
Company: ABC Home
Made In: California, USA
Description: For my next bed purchase, I think I'd be ready for a bed with a headboard. ABC Home's Sonoma bed seems like a great choice. The bed is modern, yet still exudes enough warmth. While I very much like this color, it also comes in a variety of other soothing tones. The Sonoma has a slip covered headboard and base, which uses a combination of linen and cotton. Foam core and soft wrap are used for the fill. The fabric must be dry cleaned professionally.
Social Responsibility: This bed is responsibly made in California using 90% recycled steel legs.

Made In: Los Angeles, CA
Description: When I purchased my Matteo bedding, my bed was instantly transformed into a luxurious haven of relaxation. I actually love making my bed in the morning because Matteo makes any room look beautiful. Matteo's mission to create quality product shines through and through. The colors and attention to detail are impeccable. My favorite aspect of the Matteo line is their reference to vintage fabrics. They seek to re-create the look and feel of well-loved textiles, which requires the perfect amount of softness, yet stability.
