Leisurely: Slow Living Tencel Bedding Brand Launching on Kickstarter
Do you ever find the pace of life too fast, but you’re not quite sure what’s keeping you so busy?
That’s exactly the feeling that inspired me to start Leisurely. I was working in sustainable fashion production and desperately wanted to make a positive impact on the world, but life always felt too busy. At the same time, I was finding it hard to justify putting more and more clothing out into the world when there’s such an excess of it already.
I started Leisurely on the idea that there must be a better way of doing things. The planet’s burning out, but we are too. We’re all hustling to find personal fulfilment and to fix our climate crisis, but in the process getting confused, overwhelmed and worn out
At Leisurely we’ve stripped everything back and started with the question of what do we actually need more of, and what will bring real value to people’s wellbeing and daily lives?
Our Tencel bedding sets are designed to last, and give instant relaxation every night. They are made from 100% Tencel sateen, which is beautifully soft and kind to sensitive skin, and antibacterial so they stay fresh for longer.
Tencel also rates as one of the most sustainable fabrics consistently (by Textile Exchange and the HIGG index), as it is made from fast-growing eucalyptus from FSC and PEFC certified forests, and is produced in closed-loop process so that the waste water is clean enough to drink.
Our Tencel bedding sets will be available to pre-order on Kickstarter on Monday 28th March. Until then you can find out more about us at www.getleisurely.com, on LinkedIn or on Instagram (@getleisurely). Or say hi to me, Sophie! I’ve recently joined Future Leap and am really excited to get to know the other businesses here.
