Raksha Bella Launches Eco-Luxe

Raksha Bella has launched its Classic Collection at select California coastal retailers, a line that founder and designer Carrie Peters said is the result of a spiritual decision to create an "eco-luxe" bedding collection.

"As a designer, I feel it's my responsibility to create sustainable solutions to the things we consume every day," said Peters. "With a handcrafted approach to the Raksha Bella line I want to show the interconnectedness between product and person."

Peters was inspired by the finely handcrafted decorative arts she saw on a trip to India, in particular a range of handblocked textiles. She founded the Raksha Bella company last year.

Raksha means "protection" in Sanskrit; Bella is Latin for "beautiful."

"Together," said Peters, the words "elegantly communicates the brand's philosophy which is protecting what is beautiful with handmade organic textiles." She said the company works to ensure fair labor practices, uses SKAL- and GOTS-certified organic cotton, and AZO-free low impact dyes.

The Raksha Bella Classic line of duvet covers, quilts, shams and pillowcases are hand-woven in 225-thread count. Suggested retail price for a queen duvet cover is $434. Pillowcases start at $46.80; Euro shams at $22.40.
