If you have slept on a low cost foam or futon mattress, do you know why it has a noxious smell? It is due to the mix of polyester and even with cotton, its the world's dirtiest crop due to its heavy use of pesticides. Organic cotton is not just about reducing synthetic pesticides and fertilizers but also reduced hormones, GM seeds and sewer standards. Our 100% organic futon has long length staple fibers instead of mote or linter with smaller strands. In regular cotton mattresses, you will find more of linter. Hence chemical free mattress, so you are are not smelling unknown fumes for 6-7 hours every night.
Search other mattresses, if you dont find wool then its probably boric acid or other chemical. US Federal rules have strict flammability standards for mattresses, hence there is a need for fire barrier(s). If mattresses advertise as organic cotton, check deeper to see if they use polyurethane, sodium borate as their fire barriers. Our cotton mattress has wool which is a natural fire retardant, not just normal wool but 100% certified organic wool blended from multiple sheep breeds. Wool is not just water resisting, it also regulates heat and keeps mildew at bay. Organic wool is the gold standard but it is expensive! We all do it, buy on price but be sure you know what you are paying actually compares to fully organic mattresses.
The organic cotton futon mattress is finished with a beautiful GOTS organic cotton ticking. A fabric that provides you that natural feel with a touch of class, not to forget well suited for a handmade finish. The cotton twill has a strong, durable finish and yet comes with a bit of smooth sheen. This is a durable material very different from foam bed in box with its polyester blends, this twill captures the eco friendly nature of our mattress very well. The backing quilt that is ahead of the wool is also stitched with a organic cotton material. It is an important part of the product and is very thin but holds the wool in place, this too continues the nature of organic cotton mattress. Also these are made in Global Organic Textile Standard certified workshops and as of 2016 there were only 2 such certified centers in their list.
But here’s something really interesting...
This is not just a mass made organic cotton futon, this is a handmade indian style cotton mattress with a modern construction to give it sturdiness. The covers of all four sides and the panel is stitched together but is finished with a very strong zipper that can be opened to see the organic materials inside. Cotton batting is known to shift hence we hand tuft these at points across the futon organic mattress, it also helps in creating a firm natural sleep surface. This cannot be done in any spring or foam mattress and neither can it be constructed in any natural latex mattress. The cover cannot be removed to avoid shifting of the fibers and we always recommend adding an organic mattress protector if you have concerns around spills and stains. The marriage of these two methods brings out an absolutely firm organic mattress that can only be experienced.
