Tonight: Check Out Bouquets, Q&As, and the Latest Coyuchi Drop
Coyuchi is a different kind of linens company. The San Francisco-based brand uses only natural fibers, processes them minimally, and focuses on timeless, contemporary design. These are the linens you would expect to find in a Nancy Meyer’s movie: if Diane Keaton’s character and home in Something’s Gotta Give were distilled into a sheet set, it would be made by Coyuchi.
Beyond the eco-friendly/GOTS jargon, Coyuchi has developed a business model, Coyuchi for Life, to divert linens from landfills. It’s a feel-good company, in more ways than one. It’s also relatively pricey. An organic cotton bath towel starts around $50; a twin cotton sheet nearly $200. But, as we’ve discussed many times in the past, sustainable, fairly-made products cost more.
So you’re intrigued by Coyuchi, but you can’t decide if you’re $100-bath-sheet intrigued? Head to the Coyuchi showroom (1400 Tennessee Street) tonight for their Spring Newness shindig from 6-8 pm. The party will be a chance to check out the latest releases from the brand, and shop special samples at clearance prices.
In addition to lovely sheets and things, there are a lot of extras happening at the space. “Eco-Warrior” Anne Therese Bengtsson will be discussing how to apply sustainability in your home and life, and Bengtsson and Coyuchi Production Manager of Sustainability, Margot Lyons, will hold a Q+A to answer all your burning eco-conscious questions. Erin Miller, from The Floral Times, will be hosting a build-your-own bouquet workshop, while Aesop Wines and Urban Remedy will be providing treats to fuel you through the event.
Admission is free, but you can earn good guest karma points by sending an RSVP through Eventbrite.
