A New York-based homeware brand has launched vegan and biodegradable bedding.

The company called Buffy created the comforter (duvet) from eucalyptus wood pulp for all elements – stuffing, casing, and threading.

Eucalyptus pulp is sourced from Austria before being spun and bound into yarn to make fabric and thread. Eucalyptus fibers are used to fill the exterior.

Vegan and sustainable

“Traditionally comforters, bedding and textiles, in general, are not very sustainably made and they eat up an incredible amount of source footprint, particularly in the form of water,” Buffy Founder, Leo Wang, told Dezeen.

“It [eucalyptus] is about 90 percent less water-intensive to cultivate.

“If you pluck out one of the fibers from our comforters and put it under a microscope, you’ll see that it has no strange irregularities or coarseness. That’s what makes it so soft.”

Vegan homeware

Demand for animal-free – and environmentally-friendly – homeware is on the increase, according to vegan charity PETA, which announced the winners of its third annual Vegan Homeware Awards week.

The organization said the awards ‘recognize this year’s top designs and innovations for a cruelty-free home’, as demand for compassionate and sustainable decor and furnishings grows.

“It’s easier than ever for compassionate consumers to adorn their abodes with beautiful, cruelty-free homeware,” PETA Director, Elisa Allen, said. “[Forward-thinking companies are] meeting the booming demand for vegan decor with fashionable and functional pieces that are sure to make every space shine.”?
