The Coyuchi catalog, Coyuchi.com, has become an anticipated one.

The California-based home textiles company specializes in bed, bath and baby products made with 100 percent organic cotton and other natural fibers free of toxic dyes. The vibe is modern and invitingly cozy. What distinguishes Coyuchi’s sheets and towels is that the palette is earthy yet ventures far beyond oatmeal, sage-green and mud. You’ll find saturated color including mustard yellow and spicy orange. The detailing is handsome, too: crocheted edges, yarn-dyed stripes and embroidered designs.

Standouts include:

• Zigzag matelassé coverlets and shams. The bedding is woven from chunky yarn-dyed cotton in ivory paired with charcoal, tangerine or deep green tea. Euro shams are $86 each.

• Rustic linen blanket. Linen is backed with organic cotton flannel. A 60-by-43-inch throw is $158.

• Mediterranean bath collection. Khadi towels, made in Turkey, are lightweight with a weave that absorbs well, dries quickly and feels nice against skin. The organic cotton with yarn-dyed stripes is edged in hand-knotted fringe. Wash cloths are $9 each.

If you want to see and touch Coyuchi textiles yourself, they’re carried locally at Eagles’ Rest Natural Home, 642 Locust St. in Lawrence, 785-766-4771, EaglesRestNaturalHome.com.
