Crowdfunding Corner: Aizome Bedding

Bedding we all can use.

Combining natural indigo dye and high-grade cotton with a modern innovative approach, Aizome Bedding creates organic fabrics that treat and soothe your skin while protecting against common skin conditions

Inspired to bring the powerful benefits of traditional Japanese indigo-dyed fabrics into the modern age, a new company, Aizome Bedding, is introducing organic bed linen to provide a unique and healthy sleep experience.

The company’s products are environmentally friendly and produced without employing toxic chemical dyes that can irritate the skin and lead to potential health problems. Aizome Bedding uses the leaves of the Asian indigo naturalis plant that provides its bedding products unique color, medicinal properties, and low environmental impact. Aizome updates a centuries-old Japanese dyeing technique through using a cutting-edge ultrasound technology in developing uniquely colorfast and chemical-free textiles. This gives the company one of the lowest environmental impacts of any textile in production, using 200 times less water than chemical dyes.

“Most people think their skin is an impenetrable barrier, but it absorbs a lot of what we touch through a process called dermal absorption,” said Michel May, founder of Aizome Bedding. “Now consider that a third of an average person's life is spent in bed. That represents a lot of exposure to potentially harmful chemicals such as azo dyes, phthalates, formaldehyde or flame retardants (PBDEs) used in the production of the average set of pillowcases, sheets, and comforters, which can be absorbed through the skin, and processed in the kidneys and liver, causing potential lasting damage. You don’t have to worry about any of this with our natural indigo dye. The Japanese have done this for millennia.”

Aizome Bedding’s product is its use of organically sourced GOTS certified cotton fabric that has not been grown with any toxic chemicals, pesticides or GMOs. The effective combination of the natural indigo dye and organic cotton provides Aizome bedding with hypoallergenic qualities, eliminating dust, detritus, oil and dust mites from building up in a sleeping environment, and preventing anyone with sensitivity to dust materials from experiencing bad reactions.

 Available on Indiegogo.

Benefits of the company’s bed linen include:

·         Anti-Inflammatory Properties: The anti-inflammatory properties of indigo naturalis have been scientifically proven.

·         Antibacterial Properties: The antibacterial properties of natural indigo prevent harmful bacteria from collecting in bedding.

·         Extremely Environmentally Friendly: The process of dyeing with natural indigo uses 200 times less water than chemical dyeing, and waste water is used to fertilize fields.

·         Hypoallergenic production: Aizome’s bedding is manufactured using allergy- resistant material.

·         Organically Produced: Aizome’s products are made using organic, non-GMO materials.

·         No Synthetic Chemicals: Promotes health by removing harmful chemicals from your sleeping environment. Aizome substitutes harmful materials in traditional modern bedding with the health benefits of natural indigo.

·         Durability: The oldest surviving textiles in the world are dyed with natural indigo, which coats and protects textile yarn. In addition, Aizome Bedding has no wear and tear parts such as buttons, rubber bands or zippers, and can potentially last for decades.

In Japan, samurai warriors often wore indigo-dyed shirts under their armor. The Japanese valued indigo-dyed material not only for its magnificent color but also for its ability to help heal wounds, repel insects, reduce inflammation and prevent infection. Aizome is the art of using naturally fermented indigo as colorant together with high-quality organic cotton in a completely synthetic-free process.

Launched by a team of Japanese and international healthcare professionals and textile experts who were concerned with the negative dermatological health effects and environmental impact of the chemical textile industry, Aizome Bedding aims to provide a viable alternative promoting wellness, better sleep, healthy skin and a clean environment.

Aizome Bedding has launched an Indiegogo campaign, ( jects/organic-indigo-bed-sheet s-that-treat-your-skin#/ ), to spread awareness about their company’s products among consumers and the investment community.
