From her headquarters in Point Reyes, CA, Coyuchi founder Christine Nielson uses hand-harvested, organic cotton in her luxurious line of bedding. Coyuchi is luxurious enough to be found in many exclusive resorts, and the manufacturing process is deeply rooted in eco-consciousness. The organic cotton is hand-harvested to avoid the use of fuel, and no chemicals or pesticides are used on the fields. Toxic finishes, common in conventional textile processing,
