Eyeview on Bangladesh

on Saturday, 01 April 2017.

visionblog2While Organic Bed Threads appraises the efforts of ethical production processes in our chosen manufacturing country of India, and focus' on the poignant role of fair trade and safe working conditions in all phases of our bed linen creations from certified organic cotton seed to chemical free artisan studio; India's neighbour, Bangladesh, the second largest ready-made garment (RMG) producing country in the world has had many an eagle eye and critical media backlash on this apparel manufacturing hub since 2013.

As we head towards the anniversary of the Savar building collapse that occurred on Wednesday, 24 April 2013 in Savar Upazila, a division of Dhaka in Bangladesh, where an eight-story commercial building named Rana Plaza collapsed due to structural failure, we are reminded that it is considered the deadliest garment-factory accident in history, with 1129 loss of life, as well as the deadliest accidental structural failure in modern human history. This textile disaster, bought to light the appalling plight of unfair and unsafe conditions that workers were subjected to if they wanted to be employed.

While the fashion spotlight still remains on the horror of this disaster, with an additional negative tag of those factories creating fast fashion for the larger Western fashion houses¹, many positive stories of the fashion sector continue to be overshadowed with the tendency of traditional media viewing that negative stories are news and positive stories are not news at all!

New Year, New Bedroom Chi

on Tuesday, 24 January 2017.

bedroom chai blog organicbedthreadsEnergy, that invisible element, like wind and time. We know it's there, we can feel it and its repercussions, we are surrounded by many types - electronic, atmospheric, flammable and personal to name a few. Good, bad, or indifferent, the energy in our homes need to be cared for, or you will be affected. So, there is a lot to be said about getting the energy right in ones living spaces, especially the bedroom as we spend approximately one third of our lives in slumber.

In the bedroom, where you harness the life-renewing force of sleep, chi (energy) becomes perhaps more important than anywhere else. Bedroom energy can influence family relationships, and it is one of the most important rooms for marriage and relationship, our greatest creative loving action. Building biology, space clearing and the 5000-year-old practice of Feng Shui - combining elements of geology, psychics, mathematics, philosophy, astrology, astronomy and intuition - are actions that create beautiful and nourishing environments that enhance positive chi.

Most of us can feel when a space is at odds with our comfort level, and instinctively make changes to that area. You don't need to get bogged down with some of the intricate and esoteric applications that these principles can go into interesting depth about, though applying some of the more practical guides may help the quality of your rest and sleep, enhance harmony in relationships, romance and love, promote a healthy career and prosperity.

Documentaries - Textile Ethics Questioned

on Tuesday, 29 November 2016.

documentaryHelping to spread the unjustness that is occuring in the textile industry of developing countries, via a growing list of documentaries worth watching. Ethical questions are bought to stark reality in terms of the triple bottom line of companies, chemical use, crude and forced labour and unearthing the inhumane treatment that does not support fair trade....

Organic Bed Threads only engages in fair trade and social and environmental textile produciton practices. Our passion is fuelled by respecting creative techniques and we are driven by humanitarian intent at every step. Our own moving story is The Journey Of The Humble Cotton Boll(2.48mins).

From seed to shelf, Organic Bed Threads leaves only a pinkie toe, not a whole footprint, on the planet. We bring your attention to these documentaries because we believe consumers need to be informed on how they fuel these activities via their purchasing power. The greater self education on how we are disrespecting people and planet, with hope, will prick our conscience and convert our buying habits to healthier ones. Just because we do not know the many hands and faces who make our products does not mean that their lives are any less of value than ours.
