When you are born in Asia, a baby is not just made to sleep on natural cotton hand stitched mattress which is on top of a flat wooden bed. The little angel is swaddled in old cotton clothes, applied tree based oils and given natural herbs before it sleeps. A billion people should probably be doing something right. This is why we call ourselves Bed and Wood to remind us that hard wooden bed and mattresses were the start of living naturally for centuries, during the day or later at night. Today, everything from our PJs to expanding foam mattresses are from industrial labs. The products that were used by NASA rockets or made for oil fields are sold as the latest innovation in sleep. We rely on them after being marketed as firm or soft and cool or hot. There is a place for chemical VOC filled products, but maybe its not to help us sleep. We, at Bed and Wood, throughly search for scientific research of natural products impacting sleep but also searching for that trustworthy generational wisdom. Just like organic foods and the associated ways of farming are back, so should be cotton PJs at bed time! Our passion is to get natural materials into sleep habits and to listen to you on what we can do better. This is our vision and thank you for shopping with us today, hopefully sleeping on natural products all nights.
There is so much unknown in the mattress you buy, especially with the government regulations on flammability.The mattress you can popularly buy today are mostly made from petroleum based foams, steel springs to styrofoam insulation. There is no such thing as the best sleeping surface because everyone has their own preference but the possibility to make that choice with natural materials is important. How did generations of humans survive without any back or sleep issues related to their mattress? Why take a risk inhaling chemicals with 7 hours of our sleep?
We hope that you are able to enjoy sleeping on a dunlop latex or an organic futon bought from us or others. Whether you recently moved houses, enjoy outdoor activities or are concerned about your family's health- we think sleeping on a natural surface is a good way to renew your days. Organic or natural does not mean chemical free but they are the best you can have. For more reads including why organic cotton, sleep issues for women, etc read our blog section.
