SOJAO means ‘go to sleep’ in Hindi, and was chosen as a tribute to the Indian cotton farmers behind our best-selling bed sheets. We want the best possible night’s rest not only for our customers, but also for our entire supply chain - right down to the cotton farmers and their families.
What is organic cotton?
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have low impact on the environment. It is produced without the use of harmful chemicals, insecticides and pesticides. It does not use genetically modified seeds, nor does it use any toxic dyes, bleaches or finishes. This is also why organic cotton is softer, gentler and more durable than conventional cotton.
What does GOTS-certified mean?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire supply chain of organic textiles and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Independent third-party certification is required for the whole supply chain. It enables legitimate ‘organic’ claims to be made on final products. For more information on Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), please visit here.
What are the benefits of GOTS-certified organic cotton?
Besides being beneficial to the well-being of farmers and the environment, it is a safe option for you and your loved ones. Sleeping on organic cotton, grown without any pesticides or treated with any toxic chemicals, is the best gift you can give your skin. It is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin conditions or allergies such as eczema.
Buying a GOTS-certified product also means supporting fair working conditions for workers employed in the factories and making sure no child labour is involved.
Where does SOJAO source organic cotton from? And why?
After spending close to two years searching for the best cotton, we found what we were looking for in India. India is one of the largest organic cotton producers in the world. India also has a long history of respected textile tradition, which enables us to produce at some of the highest quality production facilities in the world that are GOTS-certified.
What is the thread count of SOJAO bed sheets?
SOJAO bed sheets are made with 100% long staple organic cotton and weaved using single-ply yarn, to a 300 thread count. Our bed sheets have the perfect balance of being lightweight, breathable, super soft and durable.
What is thread count and how should it affect my buying decision?
Thread count is the textile industry's measurement of the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. It is not an accurate indicator of how soft or durable a bed sheet is. The quality of a product also depends on the weaving process and the quality of the yarn used. We're proud to say that all SOJAO sheets are made with 100% long staple organic cotton and weaved using single-ply yarn.
How do I wash & care for my SOJAO bed sheets?
Our bed sheets are designed to last with minimum care:
• Machine wash on gentle cycle • Wash with like colours • Do not bleach • Tumble dry low & remove promptly • Line dry for best results • Iron on low temperature if needed
What types of dyes are used in all SOJAO bed sheets?
We only use GOTS-certified low impact dyes that are AZO-free and that are safe for the environment and for you. Our whites are also bleached using oxygen-based bleaches, instead of chlorine-based bleaches.
What is Sateen?
Sateen is a type of weave: four-over-one-under. It's what gives our bed sheets its signature buttery-smooth, luxurious finish.
Does SOJAO bed sheets wrinkle?
Yes they do, and that's a good thing! Our sheets are not treated with formaldehyde resin or any toxic chemical fabric finishes. These irritants are harmful to the skin and won’t wash out. SOJAO sheets will naturally wrinkle, but these wrinkles will be reduced with every wash and use. We also recommend hanging your bed sheets to dry immediately after the wash has ended, to prevent significant wrinkling.
Do SOJAO bed sheets come pre-washed?
Yes! Our bed sheets can be used immediately. However, we do recommend that you wash them first if you have any skin sensitivities.
Will SOJAO bed sheets shrink after the first wash?
Yes, because we avoid harmful chemical sizing agents like formaldehyde or other laundering practices to pre-shrink the final product. But rest assured, SOJAO sheets are shipped to you slightly oversized to account for the slight natural shrinkage that will occur. After the first few washes, your bed sheets should fit perfectly!
How deep are SOJAO fitted sheets?
Our fitted sheets have 38cm (15") deep pockets and a full elastic band to ensure it fits even the thickest mattress with a topper.
What are the dimensions of SOJAO bed sheets?
We carry many sizes from Cot to California King. Have a look at our size guide to find the perfect fit for your bed.
