Insider’s Guide to Nature-Inspired Home Textiles with bedouin SOCIETE
Discover bedouin SOCIETE’s sustainable manchester range inspired by a grounding natural palette.
bedouin SOCIETE honours the sacred rituals of sleeping and bathing by promoting a connection to nature in our homes. Established in 2011, the brand captures founder Virginia Feldtman’s formative years in fashion and knowledge of fabric and yarn passed down from her father – a textile chemist.
Natural fibres underpin bedouin SOCIETE’s home textiles, chosen for their long-lasting, timeless and sustainable qualities. “Pure linen is a fibre that doesn’t require pesticides to flourish, and it’s also recyclable, therefore kind to us and our earth,” Virginia says.
For Virginia, a grounding natural textile palette is fundamental to creating a nurturing home. “Natural, neutral textiles cohabitate with materials such as stone and wood and natural pigment paints,” she says. “Natural neutrals can be used as building blocks and staples in your linen chest, and then for seasonality, add colour,” she adds.
bedouin SOCIETE offers shades of green, such as moss and seastorm, best paired with milk white or pure white – or quartz blue to accentuate colour. “Green is permanently intertwined with nature – we are surrounded by it – and it’s known for instilling a sense of calm and serenity in the bedroom.”
Virginia recommends layering natural texture with their Sia Jacquard Weave linen throw or Perla New Zealand wool and mohair blanket in earthen tones and extending this sense of tactility to the bathroom with raw cotton, chunky hand-knitted bath rugs such as Ankit.
