9 Silky Soft Sleep Masks Made Using Organic Materials
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
Let’s be honest: We don’t always feel refreshed and rejuvenated after waking up, especially this year. And we’ll do pretty much anything to ensure the most restful night of sleep. One of our top tips? Going to bed with a good sleep mask.
Sleep masks are ideal for blocking out light and distractions. Specific masks—like ones made with silk—can also keep skin moisturized (an essential during the winter months). It’s a small luxury that makes for the perfect addition to our nighttime ritual.
These sustainable sleep masks use entirely upcycled fabrics, responsibly sourced silk, and organic fibers. Ranging three continents and with worldwide shipping options, everyone can enjoy a sustainable and soothing night’s sleep.

Peacemaker Studio’s handmade, weighted sleep mask is pure bliss. Whether you are looking for a light-blocking aid or a self-care accessory, this adjustable mask delivers. A hidden zipper makes the cover removable for washing, and the fill is made from organic flaxseed and lavender (for a scent-free option simply make a note during the sale and the lavender can be left out!); this unique fill creates a pleasant pressure that’s great for soothing headaches. The mask can also be gently heated or refrigerated for an even more luxurious experience!

Saatva’s weighted sleep mask is made from the highest quality mulberry silk, making it natural hypoallergenic, breathable, and temperature regulating. The fill is made from all-natural glass beads, providing a gentle and even pressure that also helps to block out light. If the delicate skin around your eyes is especially sensitive, a 100% silk mask of this quality helps to protect the skin from any irritating friction.
5. Nest Bedding

Standout Ethic | Fair Trade certified

This mask is lightweight but designed for a snug fit, providing the soothing pressure of a hug for your eyes.

Standout Ethic | Women-owned
Price | $22
This Asutra sleep mask is a versatile self-care tool that can be used for sleep, relaxation, or during savasana after your yoga practice. Though it comes already filled with organic lavender and flaxseeds for a light, easily adjustable weight, add more from the provided extra filling bags for added scent or your preferred pressure. We love to freeze the gel mask insert for 10 minutes before slipping inside for a gentle cooling experience!
