We’ve reviewed dozens of organic comforters and duvet inserts — these are our top nontoxic selections for your health, comfort, ease of care, and long-lasting durability.

Not all bedding is created equal. Some duvets are made with conventionally grown cotton which uses pesticides and fertilizers, while other comforters are polyester, which accumulates more dust mites than down. That’s why we like to opt for bedding made of organic, natural materials — namely, organic cotton, down, and wool. It’s like a gentle hug from nature, minus the toxic drama!

But naturally derived materials are only half the battle. A composition of naturally derived fibers doesn’t mean a comforter wasn’t treated with chemicals during manufacturing. So how can you tell which duvets and comforters are good for you and for the planet?

Read on for the lowdown on how to choose organic bedding, and our top ten selections. 🤓

What is organic bedding?

Organic bedding is made without synthetic chemicals — that means no harmful pesticides on the natural materials like cotton or wool, and no chemical treatment during manufacturing. This reduces your risk of sleeping on potentially irritating allergens or chemicals like PFAs and flame retardants.

Why shop for an organic comforter or duvet?

Natural materials take less energy to produce and leave less pollution in their wake. On the other hand, polyester, the most common synthetic material, produces tons of wastewater, for one, and releases microplastics each time it’s washed, for two. But since polyester is still a super common and convenient fabric, we recommend opting for recycled whenever possible. For more info on sustainable fabrics, check out our handy fabrics guide.

Synthetic fabrics harm humans along with the environment — folks who work in textile factories, specifically. They’re at higher risk for health complications like respiratory issues, cancer, and more.

Conventional bedding and mattresses are often exposed to VOCs during the manufacturing process, a commonly used class of harmful chemicals, giving bedding that weird chemical smell when you first open it. VOCs can irritate the sinuses and even damage the central nervous system, making it especially important that sensitive folks seek out natural bedding.

What should you look for when shopping for an organic comforter or duvet?

Ok, so now we know the why when it comes to organic comforters and duvets. But how do we know which products aren’t actually filled with potentially harmful substances? In short, third-party certifications. The most helpful here are GOTS, Oeko-Tex, GreenGuard, and Fair Trade Certified factories.

To get GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification, 95% of a product’s materials must be certified organic. If a product is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, it’s free of 100 commonly used toxic substances and allergens. A GreenGuard certification ensures a product won’t emit VOCs at a harmful level, Fair Trade Certified means factories have safe working conditions, and Responsible Down Standard (RDS) ensures humane animal treatment.

Under The Canopy Comforter Review | “This is the absolute perfect comforter!! It is so quiet, soft, and warm! We went with the heavy weight, which has been perfect for New England fall/winter. It’s not crazy heavy though so it may also be fine in the summer here.” – Kathryn U. (Read more reviews
