Buffy co-founder Leo Wang is a second generation bedding maker. For 40 years his family has been weaving bedding for major retailers like from Ralph Lauren Home to Sleep Number. He became so attuned to the manufacturing process in his family’s bedding factory in northern China that he could tell the type of fabric being woven on the looms by the vibration from the machines. He was also keenly aware of the excessive amounts of power, water, fertilizer and pesticides needed to make cotton and down bedding – and of the waste produced.
So after stints at The Clinton Foundation and consulting powerhouse McKinsey, Wang returned to his roots, resolved to come up with an earth-friendly manufacturing process. Buffy debuted with a comforter made with silky soft material spun from recycled plastic bottles, then developed a process to turn eucalyptus trees, which use 10 percent of the water needed for cotton plants, into super-soft, breathable fabric for sheets and comforter and pillow shells. Today, the Cloud Comforter is the top-rated comforter on the market with over 23,000+ reviews.
