Why you should consider bamboo sheets for a good night's sleep | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

On average, we spend a third of our lives in bed. A good night’s sleep can dictate which direction your day will go. Waking up refreshed and rested leads to sharper focus and attention throughout the day, while a night of tossing and turning usually signals a dismal day ahead.

You may not know it, but our beddings play a vital role in our nightly ritual. The quality of our pillows, sheets, and blankets directly affects our sleep patterns. While we invest heavily in skincare regimens and products for better skin, we often forget to think about what we can do for better sleep.
When you think bed sheets, the first things that come to mind are usually: thread count or Egyptian cotton. Linen and Homes will make you think otherwise.

Why bamboo?

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. It also produces the softest natural fabric. Bamboo sheets are lightweight and breathable, making them perfect for our tropical climate. They are thermal-regulating and moisture-wicking so they do not retain heat and keep you feeling cool throughout the night.
This fabric is also hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial, so ideal for people with sensitive skin.

Linen and Homes

Linen and Homes, a local brand founded by husband and wife tandem Ryan and Shelly Tan, offers a range of luxurious 100% bamboo sheets at very affordable prices. The idea of the brand came about during their honeymoon. They were very impressed with the softness and comfort of the bedsheets used at one of the places they had stayed in. When they asked about it, they were told they were bamboo sheets. So they researched on bamboo sheets and decided they wanted more Filipinos to enjoy and experience them the way they did.

“We would like to educate Filipinos that when it comes to buying your sheets, it’s not just about the thread count. It’s what’s between the thread count that truly matters,” Shelly explains. “At Linen and Homes, we have specifically chosen bamboo sheets at 300 thread count which we found to be the perfect combination of softness and durability. What’s amazing is that bamboo sheets with a thread count of 300 is as soft, if not softer, than high thread Egyptian cotton and is also cooling to the touch.”


Whether you are fighting nightly sweats, looking to reduce your air-con bills, or simply want that 5- star resort quality feel, then these bed sheets are for you.

Don’t just sleep. Sleep well. Check out Linen and Homes and be prepared for the best sleep of your life.
