Pamper yourself when you slumber with Yala Designs Luxury Bedding and Pajamas



I came across a fantastic company called Yala Designs when searching for new bamboo bedding. See, I have a not-so-secret love of soft, jersey-like bedsheets. When I realized how soft bamboo sheets were and how similar to jersey they were, I became HOOKED. Not only that, they're BETTER and you can get them year-round!



Why? First, let me tell you a little about Yala Designs and why I'm in love with this company:
"We are a family first, a business second and adventurers always. There are a few things we’ve learned over the years: that an open mind is just as good as a road map, that life is better with a generous spirit and that laughter is always in style. Yala’s path is still unfolding; we welcome you to join us. We were explorers – two English teachers living and working in China and raising a young daughter. We had a deep well of curiosity that kept us actively seeking to understand and to make friends in the world. So with open hearts and big smiles we journeyed to see and learn as much as we could. We traveled in every type of vehicle and slept in challenging accommodations.  And that is when the idea came to us: a DreamSack for a clean, comfy, and nurturing night’s sleep.As people discovered our DreamSack and wanted one of their own, we realized we had the start of a company.  The DreamSack and its promise for comfortable travel and a good night’s sleep was just the beginning. Soon we added more sumptuous silk and cozy BambooDreams as well as our soft organic cotton. We wanted a name to reflect the company we have become and a name to grow with us as we continue this journey. We are now Yala. Yala is an invitation to enjoy every moment of your life and to share beauty and comfort along the way. Here’s to chasing dreams, wherever they may take you.

Why Bamboo?
Bamboo fiber have unparalleled advantages, including strength, versatility and luxurious softness. But the manufacturing process still requires development to support the 'green' claim of an environmentally-friendly product. Environmental benefits of bamboo include the fact that it cleans the air. Bamboo gives us clean air to breathe, consumes carbon dioxide and, because bamboo forests are so dense, returns 30% more oxygen to the atmosphere than trees. Bamboo generally requires little maintenance. Bamboo requires less energy and less water to grow, and is so resilient that it can survive in drought and even flooding. It takes much less energy to grow and sustain bamboo than other similar trees and plants used for fabric production. Bamboo can be grown without pesticides or chemicals because of it's own anti-bacterial agent. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, making it a high yield renewable resource and extremely sustainable. It can be selectively harvested annually and is capable of complete regeneration without need to replant.
In addition, BambooDreams clothing and bedding is Oeko-Tex certified. This certification screens for harmful substances present in textiles. It guarantees the safety of our fabric and dyes and is an additional assurance that we are using environmentally friendly production methods. Our fabric is dyed using only low impact, Azo-free dyes. We have seen how the dyed water is cleaned by micro-organisms and, after testing for purity, it is reused by the factory. We believe we are all one tribe: equal, hopeful citizens of the globe. We care deeply about our impact on the planet. We are always evolving, learning, looking for a better way.

I'm not going to lie. I love sleeping. I love soft, sweet, comfortable, light, snuggly, and lovely pajamas and bedding. Yala Designs has the finest silk and bamboo bedding, which is so soft and is total luxury. Yala sent me a pink silk charmeuse travel pillowcase and a Bamboo Dreams Betsy Nightshirt in Beach Glass to review.  


Silk bedding pampers your skin and hair because silk is a natural protein with amino acids that are healthy for your skin and well-being. It also adjusts its' temperature to your body temperature, making your sleep experience that much more luxurious. 

Honestly, when I received it, I was totally worried about it; because, I'm always afraid of ruining silk. I mean, who hasn't heard of the person (me) that ruins silk by washing it and drying it. Well, since it's just a pillow case, it's pretty easy to hand wash or run with other delicates in the washer, and hang to dry. I have to say it's pretty fantastic and quite lovely on my skin. This girl is a huge fan of it.

I am a little confused as to how to prevent wrinkles, I'm just not a lady that likes to iron anything bedding. So, although it's great for traveling, as it folds up into a little pouch that buttons to the inside, I can't get the wrinkles out of it for the life of me!



The second item I received is the Bamboo Dreams Betsy Nightshirt. Let me just tell you this. I want at least a dozen of these. I decided that everything I own must become bamboo. This is the most comfortable nightshirt I've ever owned. It's fabulous. The one thing I hate about pajamas is that they get all bunched up and cling on annoying places. This nightshirt doesn't get all bunchy or clingy- at all. This Nightshirt makes me want to be a SAHM, so I can wear nightshirts and BambooDreams Nellie Leggins all day. If I could wear it to work all day, I probably would. But I doubt I could get away with that! However, I've got a few pieces of clothing on my wish list for Christmas (**cough**cough** Hubby), check out my other loves from Yala. 





 Not only do they have fantastic bedding, pajamas and women's clothing, they also have a men's and children/baby clothing as well.


So, I've found a brand new favorite company to get those baby essentials and fantastic comfy clothing for my family. I cannot wait to purchase a bedding set for Christmas.

  10. I really like the Dreams Katie Tunic, and the leggings. I love the mommy clothes too. Since having three kids and attempting to get my shape back I admit I like baggier t shirts. But these are nicer, and look so comfortable, plus they are also very stylish.
