Natasha Dyer of The Natural Mat Company tells us about their all natural fibre baby mattresses for cribs, cots and single beds and their range of 100% organic bedding.
Worried about the chemicals packed into crib and cot mattresses? Looking for a natural alternative?
The Natural Mat Company believe that every child deserves the best start in live and that means plenty of good sleep, in a safe, comfortable and natural environment. Unlike standard polyurethane baby mattresses, all Natural Mat mattresses are handmade in Devon from 100% natural fibres and are chemical free. The materials we use include coir from the only organic coir plantation in the world, natural latex foam, mohair, horsetail hair and lambswool. Natural Mat mattresses have been proven to make babies sleep better:
- They provide excellent breathability. Babies are temperature sensitive and need good ventilation. Natural mattresses allow a constant circulation of air through the mattress.
- Perfect for allergy sufferers. It is important to keep a child’s sleeping environment as dust-mite free as possible to combat allergies such as Asthma. Natural Mat mattresses are rendered non-allergenic (dust mites can not live in natural latex or organic coir and the unique lambswool is treated with a natural insecticide derived from lavender, Lemon and Eucalyptus, which renders it anti dust-mite).
- Naturally Fire Retardant: Natural Mat are the only UK mattress manufacturer to pass the British Safety Standards without using chemical fire retardants.
- Provide Lasting Superior Support – Natural fibres are more supportive, durable and resilient and provide a natural spring compared to standard foam.
The range includes mattresses for cribs, cots, cot beds and single beds, including made to measure mattresses for any size and shape. Natural Mat also sell 100% Organic Bedding (fitted and flat sheets, mattress protectors, duvet covers and pillowcases) made from crisp cotton percale or soft flannelette to provide the complete natural sleeping environment.
