Imagine sleeping in beautiful sheets made from the most iconic tree in Australia – the Eucalyptus. Bedding crafted from this material are breathable, hypoallergenic and possess a super luxurious feel.
Aside from being rich in anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, Eucalyptus can potentially be an effective sleep aid.
Upon discovering these benefits, the founders of The Beach People, Sisters Emma Henderson and Victoria Beattie, got down to exploring the eucalyptus textiles for their new line of beddings.
Working with eucalyptus is very interesting as it is one of the country’s multitude of amazing native botanicals. The tree is being grown sustainably as part of efforts to lighten our carbon footprint on this earth, a pursuit that the sisters are very passionate about.
The bed sheets are made from Tencel Lyocell, a fibre produced from the wood pulp of eucalyptus trees, which are propagated on specialised tree farms.
Compared to a majority of man-made cellulosic fabrics, Tencel is made from recyclable, eco-friendly solvents.
No pesticides or irrigation were used, and the manufacturing process utilised less land and water compared with cotton. Consumers need not worry that it is bad for the environment.
When melded with good cotton, the resulting material is a durable, comfortable and wrinkle-free textile with a silky feel. It is very breathable as well as hypoallergenic.
The line of beddings is available in three beautiful colours inspired by Australian gum trees. The colours are described as light oak, which is a gorgeous light sandy tone; ghost, the perfect sheet; and midnight gum, a deep and rich charcoal colour.
