With the cold fall and winter holiday seasons upon us, eco-friendly home fashions brand Portico Home + Spa and Sears Canada are making sure you can snuggle at home in plush and absorbent bed and bath products made with organic cotton and available both in-store and online. Given their affordable prices and wide range of pleasing hues, these Portico™ items are not only ideal for the home but are also perfect holiday or wedding gifts.
The extensive basic and fashion bedding lines include sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases, and coverlets made with organic cotton in addition to decorative and functional (side/stomach/back sleepers) cushions and mattress pads covered in organic cotton fabric and filled with Lyocell Down®, a hypoallergenic blend of down and lyocell fibers from eucalyptus trees. Luxuriously soft bath and absorbent towels and rugs round out the setting. All cotton-containing products are processed according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which prohibits the use of toxic inputs.
“People can rest assured they are wrapping themselves in beautiful, plush, and high quality bed and bath products while feeling calm as they didn’t spend a fortune on them and they know the products were created with care for both workers and the environment,” said Gregg Haft, president of Portico Home + Spa.
Sears Canada launched the Portico Home + Spa program in March 2010 with the fashion bedding and the bath collection, and added the basic bedding line in September based on the success of the original launch. The products are sold in 50 Sears Canada stores including five stores-within-a-store in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. In the spring of 2011, the program will be rolled out all Sears Canada department stores nationwide.
The collections are available in six colors inspired by nature: earth, sand, sun, sprout, sky and cloud, ideal for making homes look stylish as well as environmentally friendly and inviting.
