Our story begins with me, Marc Lakier, working long, stressful hours for a large entertainment company and not feeling as though I was doing anything to make the world a better place. I’m a husband and a father and I was having all kinds of thoughts about my role in making a difference in this world for the sake of my family and my community.
Then, my wife purchased a sheet set as part of our daughter’s preschool fundraiser. When they arrived, the sheets were not cotton, they certainly weren’t organic, and under what kinds of conditions they were manufactured was anybody’s guess. This got me thinking …
My wife and I were already improving our own knowledge of organic foods and other organic products – we were making purchasing decisions based on our own desire to be healthier and not expose ourselves or our child to harmful chemicals and/or materials. But, these decisions were focused on how our choices as consumers affected our own lives, not how making these choices may impact the lives of others.
I started researching. What I discovered was that purchasing organic products has a profound impact on the larger global community. Furthermore, I discovered something called “fair trade practices” and came to find that where organic agricultural practices does great things for the environment and the planet’s overall health, fair trade has a profound sociological and humanistic impact all around the world, substituting oftentimes deplorable labor practices with models that take into account the health, safety, and general wellbeing of the individuals crafting many of the products we find in our homes.
So, thinking about the sheets my wife purchased from the fundraiser and all of the information I found in my research, I decided that I wanted to provide a space where people could find affordable, high-quality, organic, fair trade products for the home, as well as a place where I could educate anyone willing to listen about the benefits of organic and fair-trade practices. That space became Homestead. We welcome you and hope that you will join us in making sustainable, socially-responsible purchasing decisions for you and your family.
These sheets were sent to me as a review sample and since I first put them on my bed, I haven't used any others. I just wash and put these ones right back on because they're so lovely. They feel crisp and cool like hotel sheets, yet soft and incredibly comfortable. I'll certainly be referring people to this brand and buying more from them.
We love these sheets. Color is perfect and texture is incredibly soft!
These sheets get better with each wash, and they fit our deep mattress perfectly!
We LOVE our Sateen Sheets from Homestead! So hard to find sheets that check all our "must" boxes - cozy, comfy, stay cool, fit our mattress depth AND organic. We are so happy we found this gem of a company and we love to support small business :)
I love these percale sheets. I really didn't realize how perfect they are until I slept in them. Truly so comfortable - and I don't seem to sweat so much anymore. PERFECT.
An excellent purchase. The product is high quality and washes really well. Love the color - the fabric is softer with each wash..I would recommend this product.
These sheets are so soft and comfy - I’m always pleased when they are on the bed. Wish I had a set for the off weeks
Super soft and cozy, and get softer with each wash. Love these sheets.

Sheets are high quality and comfortable. And it is good to know that they are made with the environment in mind without exploiting labor.

We are loving our new Sateen sheets. They are soft and very comfy and look forward to going to sleep at night. Thank you for introducing them to our family
Really enjoying these sheets so far! I can't wait to see how soft they get after a few more washes!
These sheets are amazing! I love the color and really love the crisp texture. They are definitely a step up from my last set and I am looking forward to getting the Sateen as soon as it cools down.
Got the Ultra Soft Organic Sheet Set last week. They are so soft and comfy! Can't wait for bedtime. Just ordered the Percale Sheet Set for our guest room.
