Taking cotton seriously
Cotton is such an everyday material, it’s easy to take it for granted. In fact, this omnipresent fabric has been around since prehistoric times. Fragments of cotton fabric dated to the fifth millennium BC have even been discovered in the north-eastern regions of the Indian subcontinent. Today, world production of cotton is around 25 million tons and cotton accounts for a staggering 2.5% of the world's arable land.
Given how plentiful this material is – and how industrial the farming process – we think it’s worth giving the cotton you sleep on some thought. After all, your family beds down on cotton sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers night after night.
You’ll be pleased to know that Naturalmat only uses the very best. Our bedding for adults and children is 100% unbleached, undyed natural cotton. It is certified in accordance with GOTS (Global Organic Technical Standards) by the Soil Association.
What’s more, all our baby, child and adult cotton mattress covers are treated with an OEKO-TEX® certified hypoallergenic natural geraniol, which prevents bed bugs, dust mites, mosquitos and moths. The treatment is 100% of plant origin – made up of essential extracts of lavender, lemon and eucalyptus – and protects your mattress from pests in the greenest and most natural way.
Our organic cotton is not just beautifully natural, it's also softer to the touch than heavily processed cotton, so it’s just perfect for little ones and their sensitive skin.
