Sometimes you will find that it is your bedding that is making you hot at night or it can start to irritate your skin after a while.
Panda has a solution to both of these problems with their 100% Bamboo Bedding set. From the moment I picked up the bedding set, I could feel how super soft it was from the luxurious drawstring bag that keeps the bedding all together – the bag is made from exactly the same fabric as the bedding. It was immediately cool to the touch which is ideal for those who are hot sleepers.
Purchasing these items as a complete set makes everything so straightforward, you don’t have to go out of your way to match up the correct colours and sizing – they arrive wrapped up together.
If you prefer, you have the option to purchase each product separately. However, we highly recommend purchasing the complete bundle.
Now for the details. I love all the extra detailing they have added to their products, especially on their bamboo bed sheets. Quality wooden buttons (also made from bamboo) with Panda branded on them fasten the duvet cover. Another clever and practical design detail is the sewn hidden straps inside the duvet cover. Two loose strings can be tied around the loops on the Cloud Duvet. This stops it from bunching up – game changer.
French Linen has a reputation for being chic and luxurious, and that’s exactly what this other bedding set is. The Panda twist is that they’ve combined durable and textured French linen with sleek and soft bamboo.
This might seem like an unconventional mix, but they work so well together.
You are getting the best of both worlds. You will instantly notice the texture like linen – as I did – and you will feel the softness on your skin from the bamboo. They are a great pair for those who get too hot at night or are going through the menopause. Another perk to this type of bedding is that it’s anti-static.
If you’re a fidgety sleeper like me, you won’t need to worry about it damaging your hair or skin irritation.
Made with the softest bamboo, both of these bedding sets are highly breathable (encouraging continuous airflow). They’re available in a wide range of colours. When I saw the colour options, I couldn’t get over how beautiful they are – my favourites would have to be Himalayan Pink and Natural from the Bamboo & French Linen set. Other colours include Deep Sea Navy/Midnight Navy, Pure White/Coconut White, Quiet Grey/Silver Lining Grey, Urban Grey/Slate Grey, and Vintage Pink.
The big difference between them is that the 100% bamboo bedding is light and delicate whereas the bamboo & french linen is thick and strong.
When it comes to a duvet, you ideally want one for all four seasons so you don’t have to swap it out every few months or put up with sweating and chills throughout the year. You will want one that is the perfect tog to keep you cool in Summer and warm in Winter.
The Cloud Duvet is a 10.5 tog duvet and is temperature regulating, which makes it perfect for use all year round and for all sleepers. Of course, having naturally hypoallergenic properties is expected with anything made from bamboo – and the duvet is no different. So, allergy and sensitive skin sufferers can sleep comfortably with the anti-allergy duvet.
As mentioned with the duvet cover, the duvet has hidden small corner loops in the corners to tie the strings to, keeping it all in place to stop duvet drift. However, the design of the duvet is also lovely without any covers so it can work as a coverless duvet. Even the Panda London logo on the corner is so cute – I almost don’t want to cover it up but the duvet cover makes it worth it.
I have heard so many good things about it and couldn’t wait to snuggle up in it. I can confirm it does feel like sleeping in a cloud – not that I know what that feels like, but I imagine it to be light, smooth and cosy. That is exactly how the fluffy duvet feels. Dreamy.
Panda loves a reusable bamboo bag and cardboard to package their products, and we do too! It’s an innovative way to keep every aspect eco-friendly and visually appealing at the same time. I’m impressed with how a King size mattress protector rolled up neatly into such a small bag. This makes it really convenient for storing it away if you have two on rotation.
For those of you who are extremely clumsy and shouldn’t be trusted with a drink in bed (like me…). You will be pleased to know that it is a waterproof mattress protector. In case of spillage, you can keep your mattress in perfect condition whilst cleaning up the protector.
Once it is dry, you can go back to drinking your morning coffee in bed and your last glass of water before you fall asleep. Most importantly, the mattress protector can extend the life of your mattress. It creates a barrier between the mattress and you with the added bonus of being washable – this prevents dust, hair and dead skin from collecting.
An extra detail that’s a lovely touch is the label attached with all the information you need. On the back is written: “Protect What You Love”. Who doesn’t love their mattress and their sleep? So, why wouldn’t you protect it?
Everything about the bamboo mask is ethically sourced – from the filling to the box it comes in. It makes me feel as though I am doing a big reveal with the way it opens up. It all adds to the experience of receiving a Panda delivery.
Inside the recyclable box, I found a luxuriously silky bag with the Urban Grey eye mask snuggly inside.
The organic bamboo sleeping mask has a secure elasticated strap that can be adjusted quite a lot for the perfect fit, and there is no chance of this slipping off during the night. As soon as I put the mask over my eyes, I felt the coolness and soothing properties.
Crucially, the sleep eye mask blocks out all light distractions in your room, such as standby lights… or your partner’s phone screen!
In many other cases, you’ll find that high-quality bedding needs to be washed with very specific instructions, or even hand washed.
One of the most important things Panda has achieved with their bedding and accessories is easy maintenance. It’s refreshingly simple to keep all their products clean.
Each product comes with a card to tell you how it should be treated. Typically they can be thrown in the washing machine on low heat and left out to air dry.
That's all. So simple.
So, if you’re on the lookout for a full bedding set or some extra accessories – Panda offers beautiful, but practical, premium products to suit everyone. It can be far more cost-effective to buy a premium product once, that lasts a while, than cheaper alternatives which don’t last. Getting into bed will be even more of a treat! A Panda bedding set is naturally antibacterial, naturally insulating and naturally cooling. All in all a sustainable choice.
I’m off to go and order the bamboo bedding in every colour.
