Sleep better this summer: choose a natural bedding

We spend about one-third of our life sleeping. For this reason, the environment we sleep in has a big importance and impact on our health. The best bedding to sleep in – especially during summer – is made of natural fibers such as linen and cotton. Natural materials are fantastic body temperature regulators, keeping cool in the summer and warm in the winter, allowing comfortable sleep and keeping you feeling fresher during the summer nights as they encourage ventilation.

LINEN

Natural linen is the summer trend material of the moment. With its open texture, it’s perfect for warmer weather as extremely light. Perfect for people who overheat easily because it is heat-regulating. Linen is a good choice for allergy suffers as well, because of its hypoallergenic and antistatic properties.

Take a look at our “Check linen” bedding and the smaller version “Mini Check linen”, two wonderful mid weight yarn dyed beddings.

Another beautiful option for your bedroom is the “Melange linen”, also yarn dyed, whom yarns’ mix creates a  mélange coloring effect due to the mix of the blue and white yarns. 

The heaviest, and most special linen of our range of linens, is the “Panama linen” available in different colors. And remember: the more it is used, the softer it gets and the stronger it becomes!

EGYPTIAN COTTON

The Egyptian cotton is well-known for being the best cotton in the world. Its softness, long fibers and strength make it extremely durable. Our Egyptian cotton bedding are yarn dyed. That makes the color very intense compared to piece-dyed fabrics (colored only after the fabric has been woven).

Our Made in Italy production, means a lot of care and high quality products. After weaving the fabric, we wash it in hot bath and leave to dry. This special process makes the bedding softer and creates a beautiful vintage effect.

Discover our wide color range of exclusive handmade Italian Egyptian cotton luxury bedding and choose it for a better sleep.

ORGANIC COTTON 

Our organic cotton bedding are made from 100% organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The cotton is woven in our mills in Italy giving you both the highest quality and the traditional craftmanship of Italian weaving. Each bedding item is finished by hand in our atelier in Italy.

Restyle and refresh your bedroom this summer by simply changing the bedding.

Summer 2018 Artist Bedding Collection

 

"The 1973 Print" by Amelia Graham

Textile designer Amelia Graham lives in London with her husband and two small sons. Her work crosses the fields of fashion, art, and interiors and shows her deep interest in geometrics and arithmetic that led to the launch of her label in 2014. A graduate of Chelsea College of Art and Design, her prints now grace the catwalks of ready-to-wear designers and high street fashion labels and adorn the interiors of boutique hotels and private clients. Free and measured rhythms, nods to brutalist architecture, African textiles and post-modernism, encapsulated in signature prints on fabric, cushions, scarves and now new also on bedding for ZigZagZurich.

"Venn" by Sarah Parke & Mark Barrow

Mark Barrow & Sarah Parke first collaborated in 2008 with a painting exhibited in Barrow's first solo exhibition at White Columns in New York. Parke then began weaving the fabric for all of Barrow's subsequent paintings. As the textiles became increasingly complex and as weaving's logic became the conceptual framework that linked their diverse interests, it became harder to differentiate where one or the other's ideas began or ended. They live and work in Queens, New York. "Venn" is a translation of their artistic method into digital printing. Only magenta, yellow and blue were used in print. Depending on the placement of the dots stunning optical color mixtures are created.

Turn your outdoor space into a stylish lounge with outdoor curtains

SUMMER DECOR TREND
Outdoor Curtains

With our outdoor curtain "Shade" you make your balcony, your terrace or your garden fit for the summer! It serves as a screen, as a windbreak or as UV protection in one.

An outdoor space is the perfect place to entertain friends or to sit and have a cup of coffee before you start your day. But if the sun is too hot, or if your neighbors seem close enough to lean over the porch rail and swipe a burger off the grill, outdoor curtains might just do the trick to increase privacy and shade for your perfect outdoor retreat.

Our fabric meets Oekotex Standard 100, is light-/colourfast and resistant to weathering, even if in contact with salt water or bleach.

"Shade" comes in two options, either with a grommet on top to be inserted into any stretched wire system or with our standard transparent ribbon.
