Our Organic Products and Materials
Given the levels of pesticides that are used to produce the crops that go into our foods, and the number of chemicals that are incorporated into everyday objects, we think it’s really important to go organic whenever possible. And if we’re happy to embrace organic meat and veg, then surely it makes sense to approach our mattresses and bedding the same way? After all, we spend around a third of our lives sleeping.
Our organic suppliers
That’s why, whenever possible, we source our materials from organic-certified suppliers.
Organic Coconut Coir
Take our coir, for example. This hairy fibre, taken from the shell of a coconut, is used to give support and resilience to our mattresses. The coir we use is grown organically in Sri Lanka on farms that are certified by the Control Union as organic and environmentally responsible. The trees are grown without pesticides and chemical fertilisers.
Locally Sourced Organic Lambswool
We’re especially proud of our organic lambswool, not least because it comes from sheep grazing the lush, green fields of the West Country, close to our purpose-built factory on the banks of the River Exe. All of it is sourced from Soil Association farms in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall. It’s also naturally fire retardant. We combine it with cotton in our mattress covers, which pass the relevant fire tests without needing treatment with any additional chemicals, which means they’re as natural as natural can be.
GOTS Certified Organic Cotton
Being the product that comes in contact with your skin the most when you sleep, it is vital to us that the bed linen we offer at Naturalmat is of the highest quality and standards. 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.
