If we told you that you could get a set of Egyptian cotton bed sheets and help fight malaria in Africa, would you believe us? Parachute, a bedding company based in Venice Beach, not only sources its cotton from mills in Italy, but they also donate a live-saving bed net for every set sold.

Parachute’s signature Percale Venice bed sheets are everything you look for when shopping for new sheets—premium and affordable. They’re made from long-staple Egyptian cotton that’s spun in Tuscany’s world famous mills and stonewashed so they’re soft to the touch right out of the box, while staying fresh and crisp after each wash.

Available in five colors, the sheet sets are also Oeko-Tex certified, which means there’s no bleach or dye in these sheets. It also means that Parachute’s textile partners are all family-owned and adhere to practices that are natural and safe for both humans and the environment.

Aside from the comfortable night’s rest you’ll have, you can also take comfort in knowing that your purchase supports a very important cause. For every set of Venice sheets sold, Parachute works with the UN Foundation’s “Nothing But Nets” program to provide children in sub-Saharan Africa with a bed net to combat malaria, a totally treatable and preventable disease.

The only downside to all this? Top sheets are sold separately because, as Parachute puts it, “that’s our favorite way to sleep.” It could be a lot worse.

If you buy something because we told you about it, we may receive compensation from retail partners.
