What are Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon Bed Sheets Made of?
The Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon Bed Sheets are made of 100% bamboo rayon with a T300 sateen weave. Bamboo rayon is a fabric derived from bamboo, a fast-growing plant that doesn’t create fibers; instead has to go through a process before it becomes material.
The sizes you can choose from are Twin, Full, Queen, King, and California King. Each set features a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases. Just like with most other brands, Gokotta also includes a single pillowcase in their Twin size package. If you feel like you need extra pillowcases for your numerous pillows that decorate your bed, you can purchase sets in Queen and King sizes. Not all companies offer this option, but it’s something they should consider.
The color selection consists of eleven shades, all gorgeous and ready to upgrade your bedroom. The good thing is that the hues range from light to dark, so there is a little something for everyone to choose from.
Our Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon Bed Sheets review
Aside from what you see and feel when you get new sheets, it’s also very important to know more about the features of a fabric. Check out the sheet below to see how we rated the bamboo rayon material that is used to produce this set:
You can expect to sleep on a set of sheets that is so soft and buttery, you’ll probably want to stay there all day long. This is a product that not only looks but also feels luxurious.
The sheets do feature a sateen weave, which makes them look slippery, but they are not. Silky soft is the phrase we would use to describe them better. Thanks to that feature, it is easier for you to turn during the night without dragging the whole sheet with you.
To ensure your comfort and prevent corners from slipping off the mattress, Gokotta added an extra 2.5 cm elastic strap on each corner. Many people online mention that the elastic tape significantly helps the sheet stay put throughout the night, so we were very eager to test and see the results. Well, we’re happy to say that the rumors are true. If you toss and turn or sleep with a partner and you simply can’t find sheets that won’t pop off, this is an option you should consider.
The Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon Bed Sheets produced without the use of harsh chemicals, something that is crucial for people with sensitive skin and allergies.
What surprised us the most is the score of 7.6 we got for shear of the fabric. Although the material looks and feels thick and strong, it still disappointed in this department. Sheer is a characteristic that explains a fabric’s ability to withstand deformities by adapting to the shape of the body. This is the part where the sheets flopped, significantly lowering the grade. On the bright side, they got an 8.4 for both smoothness and tensile, which rounds up to a final score of 8.1 out of 10 for comfort.
Not many fabrics come close to bamboo when it comes to bedding. To our surprise, this is rayon bamboo, but it still feels like you’re sleeping on high-quality hotel sheets. They don’t come with a lot of stretch, but the fit is still good. That’s probably because of the extra deep 16 inch pockets and the elastic strap.
Pilling is such a put off for so many people when they’re buying new bedding. That’s why we wanted to pay close attention to signs of wear after months of use. Thankfully, we didn’t notice any pilling or thinning, which made us purchase several more sets.
The moment that bothered us is seeing an unsewn hem on one of the sheets right after the first wash. Loose threads are so eye-catching and can ruin the first impression of high quality for a product that you’ve been using for only a week. The stitching looks great, but we wish it were more durable.
One of the things we felt we had to mention is the fact that the sheet colors in person are not the same as the ones shown in the photos. For example, if you want a baby blue set, expect to get more on the gray side. If you’re a perfectionist who has been looking for the ideal shade of sheets for your bedroom, be careful when picking from this selection. Maybe it’s best to opt for the safest option and purchase a set of white sheets that never go out of style.
Another detail that we loved is the cute packaging. The Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon sheets will arrive in a chic white duster bag that is reusable. The pretty packaging makes these sets a great gift for your friends and family.
These sheets are definitely not cheap, neither an affordable variant of this type of bedding. But, mark our words, they are worth every single penny. Their quality is higher and better compared to most of the bamboo rayon sets we’ve tried so far. Such a great purchase!
Everyone interested in purchasing eco-friendly sheets is officially a step closer to their goal. The Gokotta bamboo sheets are ISO 9001, and OEKO-TEX certified.
Being ISO 9001 certified means that the company has to take that extra precautions in delivering products that meet the highest quality and customer standards. This is one of the most recognized Quality Management System standards. In other words, they pay attention to the qualifications and skills of their workers, design, development, equipment in production, and more.
The OEKO TEX certification is critical in terms of the chemicals used during production. It eliminates over 100 harmful chemicals and toxins that can potentially cause harm. It’s a high standard reviewed each year, making sure that the sheets you’re sleeping on are only treated with safe ingredients during the production process.
Bamboo is considered an eco-friendly and sustainable source because it’s a fast-growing plant that delivers durable sheets. You won’t be needing a new set any time soon. But, there is still one downside that people forget to mention. Rainforests are such an important part of the ecosystem, and in the past decade, the world notices significant destruction of rainforests. Using bamboo as a source for products is not 100% environmentally sound, especially if you consider it still needs to go through a process before it becomes bamboo rayon.
The company invests a lot in delivering a product that is safe for the environment and their customers. This effort deserves an 8.5 out of 10 as a final ECO-score.
Good breathability is one of the crucial features sheets have to check on the list. If your bedding keeps making you feel extra hot at night during warm days, it can be such a huge problem. There is nothing better than a set that provides a balanced environment to sleep in, year-long.
After spending months sleeping on the Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon sheets, we’re ready to deliver a decision on their breathability. These are some of the best sheets on the market when it comes to keeping you cool. For full disclosure, there were two or three nights when the temperatures were high outside, so we did feel a little warm while sleeping. But, let’s remember that the perfect sheets probably don’t exist. We’re happy that it provided a balanced temperature during 90% of the time.
To get an even more trustworthy score, we went a little more in-depth researching the fabric. For thermal conductivity, we got a grade of 8.7, the weight grade is 9, and the thickness score is 8.1 out of 10. All of this rounds up to 8.6 out of 10 for cooling.
Easy Maintenance (8.5/10)
As life gets busier, we’re all looking for bedding that is easy to take care of. Bamboo rayon is rated high on the list when it comes to easy maintenance, but not every set made of this fabric has the same features.
One of the downsides of the sheets that we noticed is that they tend to wrinkle a lot. We made the mistake of not completely following the given care instructions, but now we can share the best way to maintain them to reduce wrinkles.
Just like the brand recommends, use cold water (65-85℉) to wash the bamboo sheets, together with a mild detergent. Avoid using chlorine bleach and fabric softeners. Set the dryer to a tumble dry low setting.
We found that it’s best to air dry the sheets, that’s when there are almost no creases and wrinkles. If you still decide to use the washer, take the sheets out before the cycle is done to prevent over-drying. Another useful tip is to wash the sheets alone, without mixing them with another set or other clothes. When you don’t have the time to air dry them, you can iron them, and you’ll get the smoothest sheets ever.
We didn’t find the Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon sets to be hard-maintenance. That’s why they deserve a score of 8.5 out of 10. This grade is not higher because they wrinkled a lot, which complicated the care process for us.
Final verdict 8.5
Drawing a conclusion for a set of sheets has never been easier. We fully enjoyed the sleeping experience delivered by the Gokotta bamboo rayon bedsheets, and we’re ready to wrap things up. If you didn’t have the time to read the entire review, here’s a short version of it.
The reasons why you would want to buy these sheets are numerous and include good breathability, high-quality, easy maintenance, and comfort. Aside from being soft and buttery, they also stay put on the mattress. There were slight mishaps that we had, including seeing loose threads on one of the sheets after the first wash, but aside from that, we’re happy with the overall performance. Let’s not forget to mention that these sheets wrinkle a lot, so keep that in mind if you don’t like ironing.
The final verdict of this Gokotta 100% Bamboo Rayon Bed Sheets review is a positive one, meaning that we will purchase again. If you are interested in numbers, ours is an 8.5 out of 10 for this set. These are not the sheets that you’ll want to only place in your guest room, but ones that you’ll love for your bedroom as well.
