Collection features innovative, new Eco-Active™ down blend fill to debut at New York Home Textiles Week

CHICAGO, March 16, 2022 — Sleep products innovator Tracy Miller announced today the launch of natural-filled, eco-friendly bedding collection Earth Loves Sleep and the debut of an EcoActive™ down blend alternative created in collaboration with Eastman. The textile innovation and new product line debuts just in time for World Sleep Day on March 18, 2022, held annually on the Friday before the spring equinox. The bedding line, which includes sheets, pillows, comforters, and mattress pads, will feature in the new product catalogue at New York’s Home Textiles Week industry showcase.

Miller combines textile trends and technology to deliver innovative new sleep products designed to inspire people to rest and recover. The inventor of sleep products used in millions of homes and sold at national retailers from Pottery Barn to Costco, debuts Earth Loves Sleep, a natural-filled bedding collection featuring the new proprietary EcoActive™ down blend. It is a blend of RDS certified down and  Naia™ Renew fibers from Eastman. EcoActive™ down blend fill was inspired by an opportunity to create a unique all-natural filling material that complements of the features and benefits of Down. EcoActive™ is a proprietary blend of down, a trusted natural filling material, and Naia™ Renew, an eco-friendly, circular fiber.

“EcoActive is a truly natural marriage of materials that looks, feels and performs like high-quality down,” says Tracy Miller, sleep innovator. “Naia™ Renew fibers provide enhanced moisture management that naturally resists bacterial growth and provides better warmth retention while remaining breathable and lightweight for a modern approach to sleep comfort.”

With 15 years of experience in technical textile fiber research and material design, global supply chain sourcing, consumer packaging design and quality control, Tracy Miller is committed to helping demystify the sleep products industry for consumers. She created the industry’s first moisture-wicking down alternative bedding fill and temperature-regulating technical down blend fill for outwear and led the industry’s first bedding collaboration with a skin care company, Borghese.

Earth Loves Sleep features Naia™ Renew fibers, produced from 60% sustainably sourced wood pulp and 40% certified* reclaimed carpets. The closed-loop process used to create Naia™ Renew prioritizes the safe and environmentally sound use of chemicals, delivering sustainability as well as luxury. The manufacturing process for Naia™ Renew has a measurably reduced carbon footprint over the fiber’s life cycle. Naia™ Renew is also certified biodegradable and compostable, helping divert waste from landfills.

“Naia™ Renew is an innovative solution to the industry’s biggest issues, developing circularity at scale. Naia™ Renew creates value from hard-to-recycle materials that would otherwise be destined for landfills,” said Dr. Dnyanada Satam, global segment market manager for home textiles at Eastman. “We are proud to work with sleep innovator Tracy Miller to bring this sustainable alternative to the bedding industry and consumers around the word.”

Home Textiles Week brings together retailers and vendors annually for innovative product demos, panels, and one-on-one discussions featuring industry thought leaders. Home Textile Today’s industry directory, launching at the event, features New York Fashions Market coverage and a list of products and participants. At the event, Tracy Miller will also showcase bedding collections that incorporate 37.5® technology for temperature regulation and the Hayden Home™ collection, with Sorona® fibers that deliver contouring comfort. Tracy Miller’s innovative bedding products are manufactured and distributed by Design Weave.
