Our climate concept
We combined the benefits of TENCEL™ Lyocell and cotton in our Bella Donna Summer Blanket.
The darker side of the blanket is made from the natural cellulose fibre TENCEL™ Lyocell. It is able to absorb heat and moisture and release it back into the air. It also hinders the formation of bacteria and odours. A high-quality cotton jersey, refined with aloe vera and argan oil, provides a sense of cosy well-being on the lighter side. Integrated in the middle is a thin and airy polyester lining, so warmth and moisture can circulate perfectly.
Like all Formesse products, our Bella Donna Summer Blanket is of the very highest quality. The three material layers are elaborately knitted into a jacquard jersey. The tone-on-tone, bi-colour nature of the upper and under sides and the playful lozenge pattern set sophisticated accents, rounded off by a high-quality seam with envelope corners. We make the innovative material for our Bella Donna Summer Blanket in Germany. However, the blankets are sewn in a family-run business in Slovakia. However, since the proportion of sewing is a relatively minimal part of the production process as a whole, we declare our Bella Donna Summer Blanket to be "Made in Germany".
We are climate neutral – and so are all our products
As a company that takes its responsibilities seriously, we must also play our part in limiting global warming. As a result, we have planned, initiated and already implemented a large number of measures to reduce our carbon emissions.
Our company and our products are officially climate neutral. This means that Formesse offsets all (as yet) unavoidable emissions by supporting certified climate protection projects.
The calculation of our "carbon footprint" is carried out by ClimatePartner Deutschland GmbH.
High-quality, long-lasting bedroom textiles – that’s what the Formesse brand is all about. We see our company philosophy confirmed in the SLOW movement: We support a more appreciative, decelerated consumption of high-quality products with a much longer lifespan. In other words: We make the opposite of fast fashion, which prioritises offering the latest, constantly changing fashion trends in mostly poor quality and at the lowest possible price.
We offer you premium quality – Made in Germany – that stands the test of time. SLOW.
Our Bella Donna Summer Blanket is a constant companion throughout the year. In summer, it replaces a duvet. While in winter, it becomes a wonderfully soft and cosy extra blanket under your winter duvet. Alternatively, many use it as a day blanket on the sofa. And with its small and handy format, it also makes a great travel blanket.
Our Bella Donna Summer Blanket is amazingly easy-care: wash it in the morning on a 60°C cycle, line dry or tumble dry it, and it’s ready to use again in the evening.
Sustainable TENCEL™ Lyocell:
TENCEL™ Lyocell is derived from wood, a sustainable raw material that is fully biodegradable. The wood originates exclusively from sustainable, certified and controlled forestry management that follows the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres are considered highly sustainable due to their environmentally-friendly, closed-loop product process. Wood pulp is transformed into cellulose fibres with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. The solvents used in this spinning process are recovered from the process water to 99% and subsequently reused.
As they are derived from nature, all standard TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre types are certified as biodegradable and are compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, so can revert fully back to nature.
There is a double-faced pillowcase counterpart to our Bella Donna Summer Blanket. One pillow face displays the TENCEL™ Lyocell side of the material, the other displays the cotton side. So sleepers are free to choose their own favourite side.
We just love them!
“We have four summer blankets in total: one for each family member, so we no longer have to argue. In winter we cuddle up under them on the couch and in summer we all use one in our bed – we just love them!”
