Finding bedding for teenagers can be really tricky, I find. They’re WELL past the stage of wanting their favourite comic book hero or tv character sleeping next to them each night, and yet they’re usually not ready (especially the boys) for the adult offerings of floral patterns or plain old block colours that seem to be the only alternative.
So I let out a Whoop Of Happy when I was looking at the Fine Cotton Company’s site and teen boy crossed behind me, pausing to exclaim spontaneously “Oh, I love that stars duvet cover, that’s really cool!”
Hurrah hurray hurroo.
And out of the website and onto his bed, how does it stand up?
It’s flipping gorgeous.
The biggest test of all, of course, is how it feels. The boy is VERY fussy, and chooses to sleep under an old and faded spiderman duvet cover rather than a newer, more suitable cover that isn’t 100% cotton and therefore doesn’t feel as nice on his skin.
The Bright Stars set? Passes with flying colours. My only issue now is that he won’t sleep under anything else, so I have to wash it and dry it in a day!
The set washes beautifully, and being 100% organic cotton it dries fast too. It does need an iron, but I’m sorry to say the boy prefers his bedding ‘softly rumpled’ and not crisply flat, so no iron was used in the making of this bed.
The Bright Stars organic 200tc bedding can be bought direct from the Fine Cotton Company. It’s available in double, single and cotbed sizes, and the single duvet cover is £45.
