CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 17, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Charlotte, NC-based home textiles company Delilah Home is a winner in Good Housekeeping magazine's "Best Bedding" awards for its 100 percent organic hemp sheets. The full list of winning products will be featured on Good Housekeeping May 17th.
The Good Housekeeping home editors, GH Institute Textiles Lab scientists, and over 100 consumer sleep testers reviewed 9,847 data points in a blind comparison before selecting the winners. They test the sheets by evaluating criteria such as fabric strength, pilling resistance, wrinkle resistance, and shrinkage from laundering.
"Delilah Home is particularly proud to have won a Good Housekeeping Best Bedding award as we go the extra mile to ensure our products are high quality, comfortable, and organic from field to sheet," says Delilah Home CEO Michael Twer. Since Delilah Home launched the organic hemp sheets line in November, 2019, sales have soared, with sales on the company's website as well as at Bloomingdales, The Grommet, Macy's and Zola.com.
This is the first time that Good Housekeeping has given such an award to hemp sheets, given that Delilah Home only recently launched the sheets line, the nation's first extensive collection of hemp sheets. The sheets are available in white, light grey, natural, and mineral green, and are 50 percent thicker than most sheets with a 180 GSM thread-count, offering natural softness. The sheets are made in Portugal, a country renowned for quality textile manufacturing.
This isn't the first time Delilah Home has won accolades – the Wall Street Journal says: "They hit a delightful balance between textured and soft. Like a heavy linen's, their heft was cozy and reassuring. Worth the splurge." In 2020, the Sleep Foundation named Delilah Home's hemp sheets some of the "Best Cooling Sheets" that not only allow cool air to reach the sleeper's body but can wick away excess moisture to keep the sleeper dry and comfortable.
The sheets are certified organic from field to finished product to the stringent Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS requires the use of organic fiber and prohibits the use of hazardous processing inputs while also demanding adherence to strict worker and environmental standards. Not only do the sheets have a comfortable linen-like texture, but hemp is highly absorbent, antimicrobial, and long-lasting – perfect for the sustainable home.
Delilah Home also makes a range of plush organic cotton towels that absorb water easily and have a pile that is luxurious to the touch. They are available in sizes ranging from hand towels to bath sheets. The silky soft 300 thread count sheets and duvet covers also are made of 100 percent organic cotton.
The interest in - and demand for - organic fiber products is only growing. Organic fiber sales in the U.S. reached another record in 2019, hitting $2.1 billion and posting a 15 percent increase from 2018, according to the Organic Trade Association's 2020 Organic Industry Survey. The organic fiber and textiles category continues to rank as the largest non-food organic category in the overall $52.5 billion U.S. market.
