  • Review – What really constitutes luxury sheets, asks Nour Luxury. Are really expensive sheets worth so much more? Put off by the huge chemical consumption in mainstream cotton production, Nour Luxury’s founders decided to create a brand where every piece of organic and Fairtrade cotton could be traced back to farms and factories where people are treated properly.Nour Luxury also uses Chetna Organic in India, which has a 100% transparent supply chain – even the buttons can be certified organic. Nour Luxury’s range includes fitted and flat sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases which comes in three colours, white, pewter and natural. Each duvet set gives back a percentage to Penny Appeal’s Thirst Relief project which builds water wells in nine countries.
