Materials

Familon collections consist of beds and mattresses, pillows and duvets, as well as bedding and bath textiles. Familon products are made of durable high-quality textiles. We always choose the safest, tested and most suitable materials for each product. It is important for us to maintain high product quality and use environmentally friendly materials. Sweet dreams are made of these ingredients.

  • Linen

    Linen - Naturally ecological

    Familon linen duvet covers and linen pillowcases are made of high-quality European enzyme-washed linen. Linen absorbs moisture well and transfers excess body heat away, it feels cool in summer and warm in winter. Enzyme-washed linen does not shrink much. The linen product stays wonderfully soft if you dry it in the dryer. Linen is a naturally ecological choice and will only improve from wash to wash.

  • Percale

    Percale - Sustainable luxury

    Percale fabric is woven densely from very thin cotton threads, the fabric must have a thread count or TC value of more than 200. The percale fabric is particularly smooth and soft, dimly shimmering and luxurious. Linen made of cotton percale feels comfortable against the skin and is highly durable.

    After washing, cotton percale tends to be slightly more wrinkled than cotton satin if the product is not ironed/pressed.

    The cotton percale most closely resembles the luxurious-feeling "crispy" hotel sheets. Familon's cotton percale is not stonewashed.

  • Organic

    Organic - organic cotton

    At no point in the production of organically grown 100% organic cotton fabric are chemicals used: neither during the cultivation of cotton, nor after the cotton is harvested. The organic cotton used by Familon is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified and 100% traceable.

    About half of the pillows and duvets in the Familon collection have an organic cotton outer fabric. We are expanding our range of organic products; the towel set Prince is the latest addition to our organic home textiles. For products designed for the youngest family members, we are also switching to using organic cotton, e.g. children’s and baby bed sheets are made of organic cotton. Discover Organic Familon products.

  • Cotton

    Cotton - Breathable natural material

    Cotton is a natural material that breathes, feels comfortable and absorbs moisture well. Familon cotton duvet covers are made of high quality cotton and feel soft against the skin. The quality of the cotton thread and the way the fabric is woven affect the feel, comfort and durability of the product. Familon's plain weave cotton bedding is durable and easy to care for, perfect for everyday use.

  • Thread count TC

    Fabric thread count (TC)

    Thread count (TC) refers to the number of threads in a woven fabric vertically and horizontally per square inch (one inch is 2.54 cm). In general, a higher thread count indicates higher quality. However, there are differences in the materials and, for example, linen thread is usually thicker than cotton thread, so the thread count of linen is lower than that of cotton. In addition to the thread count, the quality of the final product is affected by, e.g. the origin, purity, treatment, manufacturing methods, binding and finishing of the materials.

    Familon products are always selected with the materials best suited to their intended use. Thread counts: cotton percale bottom sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases TC 200, cotton printed duvet covers and pillowcases TC 150, linen linen duvet covers and pillowcases TC 100.

  • Ergo

    Ergo - Supporting good sleep

    Familon Ergo products have unparalleled support features. They prevent stress as well as painful conditions, and are an excellent solution for caring after areas of the body that are already sore. A properly supported sleep position opens the airways so that it is easier for you to relax. You sleep peacefully and you wake up feeling refreshed and well. Above all, well-supported sleep brings a sense of well-being. Discover Familon Ergo products.

  • Smart filling

    Smart filling - ergonomic support and a feeling of weightlessness

    Smart filling responds to body heat and weight, giving the body optimal support. Smart filling is made of viscoelastic polyurethane foam, also known as memory foam. Providing good ergonomic support, smart filling is suitable for all body types, including shapely ones. Offering a high level of support and conforming to one’s body shape, smart filling enhances your sleep by bringing a sense of luxurious softness and weightlessness.

    Smart filling is temperature-sensitive and hardens when aired outside under sub-zero temperatures, this is natural. Carefully transfer the hardened product to a warm place and allow it to slowly warm up. Smart filling may also feel harder if the bedroom temperature is low. However, smart filling will soften when reacting to the warmth and weight of your body, when preparing for sleep.

  • Adjustable

    Adjustable

    The Familon cushion selection includes many adjustable filled cushions to provide the right kind of support for your sleep. Adjustable cushions have a zipper to adjust the amount of filling. The height of the cushions can be changed to suit your needs by adding or decreasing the amount of filling. You can order Extra filling from the online store. Check out the Tray Neck Pillow, shaped Ultra-filled pillow, Body pillow and Ergo Back body pillow. With these adjustable sleep buddies, you can enjoy well-supported dreams.

  • Recycled material

    Recycled material - a secondary raw material for the benefit of the environment

    Polyester is a synthetic textile material made from crude oil. However, environmental friendliness has long been taken into account in the fillings of Familon pillows and duvets - we have been using recycled fibre since 1995. In 2018, 55% of the filling fibres and wadding in our products were recycled fibre. Filling fibre is a polyester fibre made from used PET plastic bottles, which we can use to significantly reduce the consumption of valuable natural resources, as no new raw material is needed. Check out recycled fibre-filled Familon products.

    During 2018, we used a total of 129,225 kg of recycled fibre as the filling fibre for the pillows and duvets we produced. About 35 PET bottles are needed to produce one kilo, which means that in total we were able to utilise about 4.5 million PET bottles. The recycled polyester grades we use are mostly (68%) Eco-labelled polyester filler fibres, the environmental friendliness of which has been demonstrated by impartial life cycle analyses and the EU Ecolabel granted to the materials. Watch a recycled fibre production video on YouTube.
