Give the gift of sleep this Holiday Season with Flax Sleep - a Vancouver based sustainable + ethically produced line of French linen bedding and beyond

Lucid is excited to introduce Flax Sleep, an independently owned women operated bedding business that focuses on providing you with the best sleep possible.  Flax Sleep's priorities are aimed towards superior comfort, high production standards, top quality materials and ethical manufacturing practices.  As we spend one third of our lives in bed, it pays to invest in a quality product.  Why linen you may ask?  Simple: linen is amazing.  Initially used eight thousand years ago in the Mediterranean, it made its way around the world until the eighteenth century, when mass-produced cotton came along and provided a much cheaper option.  What makes linen so great for bedsheets is that it breathes cool in summer, while keeping warm and cozy in winter. And the longer you own your sheets, the softer they’ll get. That all adds up to better, more comfortable sleep.

Flax Sleep founders Anna Heyd, Oana Papuc and Vivian McCormick have, in addition to offering luxurious linen bedding, committed themselves to providing #ASafePlacetoSleep to women and children in need. That’s why they donate part of their proceeds (and all returned goods) to Atira Women's Resource Society to reduce waste and give back to our community.  In terms of manufacturing, Flax Sleep has partnered with a productive family run factory that has two decades of Linen manufacturing experience.  The manufacturer they have partnered with greatly emphasizes clean and safe working conditions for their employees. Flax Sleep is proud to announce that their products are manufactured in a bright modern facility in which there is a lively work atmosphere that is combined with great craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail.  This holiday season, don't just gift good quality sleep, gift clean and prosperous work conditions.  Gift support for women and children in need. 

Flax Sleep linen bedding is perfect for holiday gift guides and is a product one can feel fantastic about purchasing.  Gift Flax Sleep bedding + robes.

About: Originally in the fields of law and hospitality, these passionate businesswomen made the switch to entrepreneurship in the fall of 2017 with the foundation of Flax Sleep. The minds behind this business are Anna Heyd, Oana Papuc and Vivian McCormick, three friends who came together to share their appreciation of beautiful things, ethical business practice and fantastic sleeps. These women saw a gap in the Canadian marketplace when it came to buying simple bedding online at accessible prices, and felt inspired to fill that void.

Their journey began with a trip to Shenzhen in search of the most affordable yet high quality linen bedding to provide for Canadian customers. After much searching and weighing of various sourcing/manufacturing options, Flax Sleep discovered a factory with over two decades of linen manufacturing experience and a beautiful partnership was born. They immediately knew that they wanted to partner with them due of the exceptionally high quality of their products. Their bedding starts with 100% French flax, which is then milled into the softest linen yarn, then woven into fabric and sewn into the most beautiful linen sheets.  Flax Sleep's products include a wide variety of bedding options that are available in sets or as separates.  Their bedding also comes formatted in baby size.  Furthermore, Flax Sleep provides linen robes (you'll feel like you never left you bed!) and home goods such as tea towels.

Flax Sleep chose to focus exclusively on French linen bedding instead of the more traditional cotton for a number of reasons. Linen sleeps cooler (but is still real cozy), uses less water in the milling process, and lasts much longer than cotton. But when it comes right down to it, Flax Sleep just loves the way linen looks and feels: rustic and lived in, but timeless and elegant at the same time – kind of like your bedroom rolled right out of an issue of Kinfolk. For more reasons why #linenisbetter, check out our why linen page.

Flax Sleep is a small, independent, female-founded Canadian team. And in addition to offering you luxurious linen bedding, they also believe in providing #ASafePlacetoSleep to women and children in need. That’s why they donate part of their proceeds (and all returned goods) to Atira Women's Resource Society to reduce waste and give back to our community.
