The Citizenry Just Launched Its First-Ever Bedding Collection
These luxe linens are beautiful AND eco-friendly.
When it comes to finding beautiful artisan-made products from around the globe, The Citizenry is always one of our first stops. We absolutely love sourcing its amazing textiles to add colorful, well-crafted accents to our spaces, but now we can finally add bedding into the mix. The brand just added the Portugal Bedding Collection to its site, offering gorgeous luxe essentials in both stonewashed linen and organic cotton.
"The Citizenry is known for our handwoven, decorative pillows and blankets, but for years - our customers have been asking for our recommendation on where to find the best ethically-crafted bedding to go with these statement pieces," says The Citizenry co-founder Carly Nance. "We finally decided to solve that problem for them by creating a collection of luxe linens from Portugal (a country known as Europe's leader in bedding)."
"We are insanely proud of the end result. Our linen bedding is made from 100% French flax and crafted in the oldest, family-run mill in Portugal," shares Nance. "We spent the last six months working through every step of the process to ensure the linen is the softest it can be. It is garment-dyed and stonewashed in this incredible mill with a century of expertise and the highest standards for their employees."
Not only are all the pillowcases and duvets beautiful, but they also are good for the environment . "This Portugal Bedding Collection also includes stonewashed, organic cotton that is GOTS-certified," explains Nance. "This means it's created with the world's highest organic and social standards from start-to-finish — from the raw material to the washing technique to the environment in which it's made. As we starting researching the cotton bedding industry, we found that — surprisingly — many of the products and practices were quite 'dirty.' We are proud to offer our customers an option that is as ethical and clean as it gets."
In addition to caring deeply for creating high-end and eco-friendly products, The Citizenry also made sure the Portugal collection would have connections to its roots. "Fun fact: The colors in the collection are inspired by our walks along the streets of Lisbon," says Nance. "The dusty pink walls and roofs. The infamous blue and white tiles. Lisbon is a dream city packed with inspiration around every corner. Our Design Team worked through so many dip tests to ensure the entire palette is designed to perfectly mix and match.”
The collection can now be found on The Citizenry website. We recommend stocking up on your set before the line sells out!
