Best Bamboo Sheets in Australia
If you’ve spent any amount of time browsing the bedding-focused corners of the web or speaking to your more discerning, comfort-minded friends, you’ve likely heard about the wonder material of bamboo. No, not the lengthy shoots pandas might munch on, but the material made from bamboo wood fibres. Bamboo fabric has been stirring up the bedding market in recent years; it’s found in all manner of high-end mattresses, sheets, pillows and mattress toppers. As well as being hypoallergenic, naturally antimicrobial, breathable and soft, it’s also one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics out there. It’s no wonder the world is going bonkers for bamboo!
If you’re looking to get yourself some high-quality bamboo sheets, you might find that you’re overwhelmed with choices. There are bamboo bed sheets spanning the entire price spectrum, from eye-wateringly expensive to shockingly cheap. Which ones are worth their asking price? We set out to find the answer! Here are our top picks for bamboo sheets available to buy right now in Australia.
Australia’s top-rated Bamboo bed sheets – Ranked & Reviewed
1. Ecosa Bamboo Bedding – Best Overall
Click the button below to claim your discount.
Ecosa has once again blown us away with its set of bamboo fabric bedding, available right now at $180 (for the Queen size). The set, available in 11 different colours, comes with one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and two pillowcases. While you can buy the fitted sheet by itself for $97.50 (also for the Queen size), we think the value proposition of the full set is simply too good to pass up.
As a bamboo fabric, this bedding contains no allergens and boasts natural antimicrobial properties. Plus, the company uses a sateen weave, which is a style of weaving known to enhance the smooth and soft properties inherent in a fibre. In simple terms, this is a super-soft version of an already famously soft material. Sateen weave also helps to keep the fabric breathable, perfect for those nights when you just can’t keep cool. Tempted? Us too.
Ecosa’s bamboo fabric is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certified, meaning that it exceeds governmental standards for safety and contains zero harmful substances whatsoever. On top of this, the company proudly states that its production process is eco-conscious. In its own words, these organic sheets “feel good and do good”.
Available in Single, King Single, Double, Queen, King and Super King sizes, these sheets are delivered free within 2 – 7 business days and come with a 45-day warranty. While it’s not quite on-par with what you’ll receive by purchasing, for example, the Ecosa Mattress, it’s worth appreciating nevertheless.
Final Verdict: The Ecosa Bamboo Bedding set is hard to fault. Softer than soft, eco-friendly to a fault and about as hygienic you can get, there’s not much these sheets fall short on. When you throw in some helpful keep-in-place clips and “long side”, “short side” label cues for convenience sake, the Ecosa Bamboo Bedding set starts to shine as a product which is designed for ultimate customer satisfaction.
2. Linenly 100% Organic Bamboo Sheet Set – Best Value
Click the button below to claim your discount.
It’s easy to assume that, being the ‘in vogue’ bedding material, bamboo fabric is exclusively a premium-priced product. We’re pleased to report that this isn’t the case! The Linenly 100% Organic Bamboo Set, priced at $174.95 (Queen size), offers many of the same features as our best overall pick from Ecosa, but at a slightly lower price. If you’re not in the market for the entire set of sheets, which contains one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two pillowcases, you can also opt for a set without the flat sheet costing $89.95 (Queen size). It’s worth noting, however, that while the full set is available in 10 colours, the cheaper set only offers nine.
Just like the Ecosa sheets, this organic Bamboo set is made ultra soft with its sateen weave, boosting its 400 thread count to what, in most fabrics, would feel like a 1,000 thread count. This luxurious feel is enough to elevate any bedding setup into one worth shouting about. Plus, it’s always worth mentioning how bamboo is naturally antimicrobial and moisture-wicking, meaning that, with this set, keeping dry and hygienic in the hot Australian summers will be no issue at all. Finally, with an OEKO-TEX certification, these sheets come with a ‘zero harmful chemicals’ guarantee.
Linenly delivers for free within 2 – 7 business days. If, despite the wealth of positives attached to this product, you change your mind with your purchase, Linenly does offer a 30-day return policy. However, it only applies to unopened items. For hygiene reasons, opened items are not eligible for return.
Final Verdict: Irresistibly soft sateen weave, in conjunction with all the other benefits of bamboo fabric, make these organic sheets a hard deal to ignore. Able to comfortably fit mattresses of up to 40cm in depth, we’re confident in saying that they’d be a complement to anyone’s sleep setup.
3. ettitude Signature Sateen Sheet Set – Best Organic
Ettitude’s Signature Sateen Sheet Set might not be a bargain pick with its $258 asking price (Queen size), but for buyers who care about the eco-friendly factor of their purchases, we feel that there’s no better pick. Available in nine different colours to suit any style of bedroom, this sheet set features one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two standard pillowcases, all of which provide the same smooth and comfortable style of extravagance.
Offering the company’s trademarked CleanBamboo, these sheets are soft, lightweight and sustainable to boot. Ettitude’s Signature Sateen weave specialises in regulating body temperature while remaining gentle on skin and preventing hair from frizzing up. As mentioned, they’re not just gentle on you, they’re gentle on the environment too, made using 500 times less water and 52% less CO2 than traditional cotton. Plus, they’re STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certified and so are completely free of any harmful substances.
Suitable for mattresses up to 50cm in depth, the Signature Sateen Sheets feature labels to help with positioning, and they also come delivered—pre-washed—in a reusable drawstring bag produced from repurposed scrap fabric. How thoughtful!
Final Verdict: Whether you care about the environment, want to level-up your existing mattress or just have sensitive skin, the Signature Sateen Sheet Set from Ettitude is well worth the investment. And if you should change your mind on your purchase, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund, even if you’ve opened and used it!
4. Home Republic 600TC Bamboo Cotton White Sheet Set – Best Luxury
If you’ve got the cash to splurge on a top-of-the-line bamboo sheet set, then you’ll absolutely want to check out this indulgent offering from Home Republic. For a high-end price of $299.99 (Super Queen size), you’ll be getting a stylish and unbelievably smooth sheet set that blends bamboo and cotton in a breathable Sateen weave.

Boasting an ultra soft 600 thread count Sateen weave made from 60% bamboo and 40% cotton, the Home Republic sheet set feels like laying on a layer of regal silk. Of course, being predominantly composed of bamboo fibres, it also brings all the antimicrobial, moisture-wicking and temperature regulating features you’d expect from everyone’s favourite wonder material. Plus, the entire set is hypoallergenic, completely safe for those with allergies.
Are you tempted by Home Republic’s superior sheet set? There’s nothing to fear in trying it out: the company offers a 60-day return policy on unopened or unwashed bedding products (excluding quilts, mattress toppers, mattress protectors, pillows and pillow protectors) so you can buy worry-free!
Final Verdict: Home Republic’s Sateen bamboo and cotton blend will bring an unrivalled level of velvety smoothness to your bedroom. Alongside the inherent benefits found with bamboo fabrics, these sheets easily stand out as the best of the best.

5. Macoda Bamboo Sheet Set – The Softest
Sheets don’t come as feathery soft and supple as Macoda’s bamboo sheet set. Coming in at $200 (Queen size), the set comes with one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and two pillowcases, with the fitted sheet able to fit mattresses up to 41cm in depth. Sadly, there is only one choice of colour, white, but don’t let that put you off: the delicate feel of these sheets—with a Sateen weave that works with the fibres instead of against them—more than makes up for the lack of colour options.
Made from 100% organic bamboo (no material blending here) these sheets offer the benefits of bamboo fibre in abundance. Hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, breathable and as buttery soft as can be, these sheets are a guaranteed way to grab yourself the feel-good snooze session of a lifetime. Plus, they’re OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, and so you can rest even easier knowing that there are no harmful substances whatsoever anywhere in the set.
With a whole host of thoughtful extras like positioning labels, easy-use click buttons and extra deep sides, it’s easy to tell that Macoda cares about making its customers’ experience as effortless and fuss-free as possible. And when you throw in free Australia-wide delivery and a 50-day warranty, it starts to become clear that Macoda are as soft and easygoing with their customers as the sheets themselves!
Final Verdict: Macoda’s sheets offer a unique Sateen weave that works with the fibres instead of against them. It’s this innovation that gives them a level of superlative softness unlike anything else on the market. You may have tried gentle bed sheets before, but you’ve never encountered anything in the same league as these.
6. Bas Phillips 400TC Bamboo & Cotton Sheet Set – Best Bargain
Sleek, lustrous and modern. These aren’t terms that often go alongside bargain-priced products, and yet that’s exactly what the Bas Phillips Bamboo & Cotton Sheet Set provides. Costing just $89 (Queen, Mega Queen and King sizes), this set is suitable for mattresses up to 40cm in depth (50cm for the Mega Queen) and includes one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two pillowcases. With five pastel colour choices, this is a great pick for a bedroom with a low-key, relaxing aesthetic style.
Made with a 400 thread count Sateen weave blending 60% bamboo with 40% cotton, this set strikes a perfect balance between luxury and affordability. Offering an understated appearance with gentle colours and plain decorative lines, the whole set conjures up feelings of simplicity and unpretentiousness, a far cry from the cheap and tacky connotations you might fear upon venturing into the ‘bargain’ territory.
It goes without saying at this point that any material made chiefly from bamboo is going to be airy and supple, naturally antimicrobial and moisture-wicking. Despite its price, the Bas Phillips Sheet Set more than delivers on all of the promises of bamboo, and it does so at a nearly unbelievably low price.
Final Verdict: Bamboo sheets needn’t be a luxury afforded only to the most well-off Aussies. The Bas Philips Bamboo & Cotton Sheets Set proves that, with its 400 thread count Sateen weave and understated—yet attractive—design. For premium-feel sheets without the premium price, Bas Phillips has got you covered.
Bamboo Bed Sheets - Buyer’s Guide
Looking to take a trip through the web (or your local furniture store) and find some bamboo bed sheets for yourself? There are a few factors you’ll want to pay close attention to if you’re to avoid disappointment and end up with the silken sheets you always dreamed of.
Put simply, thread count refers to the number of individual threads the bed sheet contains, usually per square inch. The higher the thread count, the greater the comfort. At least, that’s the case up until a point. You see, not all threads are made equal, and sheets with incredibly high thread counts (600 to 800 and beyond) often use lower quality, less durable threads to bulk out the number. A good figure to aim for in terms of thread count, then, is 400 to 600.
It’s also worth noting that bamboo fibres are far softer than traditional ones, meaning that a bamboo bed sheet with a 400 thread count could feel closer to 1000+.
There are a number of organisations which assess and certify household products based on their eco-friendliness, safety or positive social impact. If a company claims that its bamboo sheets are good for the environment or free from any harmful chemicals, check if the product bears a certification to prove it. A lack of certification doesn’t necessarily mean that the company is lying, but it can be a sign that you should do some further digging.
Bamboo is a naturally hypoallergenic material, so anyone with existing allergies should be completely safe with sheets made from 100% bamboo fibres. However, some bamboo sheets are made from a blend of bamboo fibres and, say, cotton. These can be great for cutting down costs or bringing a unique feel to the sheets, but they may cause issues for those with allergies.
Caring for your bamboo bed sheets can be tricky. You’ll want to follow the manufacturer’s exact guidance, but most recommend avoiding high temperatures at any point in the washing or drying process.
