Juniper & Bliss have been collaborating with weavers’ and dyers’ cooperatives in India to develop hand woven organic cotton for bedding which is dyed in sustainably gathered plats, herbs, flowers, barks and leaves. The community of natural dyers, steeped in Ayurvedic traditions, use plants with healing properties and attribute “dosa” values to each colour. The idea of dosa or the three primary bio-elements, vata (air and ether), pitta (fire and water) and kapha (water and earth) is central to the ancient Indian Ayurvedic belief system which strives to find the perfect balance for health and wellbeing.
The process of natural dyeing means that the cotton undergoes several washes giving it a soft and stonewashed feel. The current collection uses vetiver, a grass, for it’s wonderful soft grey hues, Sandalwood bark for a plaster pink and aloe vera for its fresh white note.
The collection is elegantly understated for modern living with absolute comfort and ease of care in mind. Each piece is pre-washed for ultimate softness and expertly tailored in Belgium in atelier protégé where 40% of it’s staff are employed through social enterprise initiatives. The Juniper & Bliss symbol for happiness, represented by the ancient chintamoni motif, is hand stamped at the corner of each sheet and duvet cover.
