All mattresses, even if they are called ‘natural’ or ‘organic’, are not equal in terms of their green credentials. Manufacturers use the fire-retardant chemicals both inside and on the outer cover of the mattress to meet the furniture fire regulations. Be aware, the government says that they do not have to tell you if they use the chemicals or not – it is classified as a “safety matter”. However, as academic research has proven, it is not necessary to use these chemicals to provide a completely fire-safe mattress.
At Cottonsafe® Natural Mattress not only do we not use ANY chemicals, we hand-stitch our mattresses with flax. This means no glues or adhesives – we simply make good, honest mattresses with nothing to hide.
We use our patented Cottonsafe® cover fabric of organic cotton and wool or our pure polyester fabric – which has the lowest fabric carbon footprint – for our Vegan and hypoallergenic mattresses. We use wonderful natural fillings such as Cotton, Dartmoor Wool, Alpaca fleece and Cashmere as well as Vegan fillings which include Bamboo and Hemp. All our mattresses are Stockholm Convention Compliant for recycling and unlike all other mattresses, are labelled as such.
We’d love you to visit our factory and showroom in Woodbury, near Exeter, to see how and where all our mattresses are made, have a bounce and find out more.
