A Good Night…Naturally
About Natural Mat: (following info from Natural Mat Website)
Founded in 2000 by Mark Tremlett and Peter Tindall, Natural Mat began as a supplier of natural mattresses for boats and yachts. One year later, when Mark and his wife were expecting their first child, they realized a void in the category for a high-quality all-natural mattress product. The company then chose to expand its line to encompass the baby market with products that ensure the most natural and nurturing sleep environment for baby.
Natural Mat’s Baby and Child product range comprises everything a parent needs for a child to sleep in a comfortable, safe and healthy environment. In addition to mattresses, the collection includes machine washable, 100% organic cotton bed linen. Natural Mat products are encased in 100% biodegradable and recyclable packaging.
Natural Mat Mattresses
Hand crafted and individually inspected at the company’s factory in Odhams Wharf in Devonshire, England, Natural Mat mattresses offer a 100% natural product with superior qualities including breathability and long-lasting support. Breathability is key to quality sleep for babies as they are highly temperature sensitive. Natural Mat’s well-ventilated mattress allows air to continuously circulate, keeping baby cool, dry and comfortable. Natural Mat offers 3 Mattress Styles:
Coco Mat- Natural Mat’s most breathable and organic mattress. The Coco Mat is filled with coir from the only certified organic coir plantation in the world. Coir is made from coconut fibers, which are coated in natural latex to make a supportive and breathable fibrous layer. The coir is wrapped in the company’s unique lambswool which is bathed in a mixture made from the extracts of lavender, lemon and eucalyptus making it completely anti dust-mite as well as maintaining the excellent thermal insulating properties of wool. The mattress is covered in an unbleached cotton herringbone cover, which is removable and machine washable.
Latex Mat- Natural Mat’s most hypo-allergenic mattress, Latex Mat features completely natural latex tapped straight from the rubber tree. The latex forms a springy core and is sandwiched between layers of organic coir for extra support. This is then wrapped in the company’s unique lambswool which is bathed in a mixture made from extracts of lavender, lemon and eucalyptus making it completely anti dust-mite as well as maintaining the excellent thermal insulating properties of wool. The mattress is covered in an unbleached cotton herringbone cover, which is removable and machine washable. Latex Mat is offered in both a crib mattress and twin mattress sizing.
Mohair Mat- Mohair Mat is Natural Mat’s most luxurious baby mattress and offers a firmer, more supportive base. Horsetail hair (the longest and most durable natural fiber in the world) forms the core of the Mohair Mat and is sandwiched between two layers of organic coir for extra support. Silky mohair fleece wraps around the outside acting as a luxurious thermal insulator. The mattress is covered in an unbleached cotton herringbone cover, which is removable and machine washable.
100% Organic Cotton Bed Linen- A range of handmade, pure organic sheets and mattress protectors to complement Natural Mat’s mattress collection.
Sheets are made from luxurious soft flannelette and crisp cotton percale. They are machine washable and will provide years of service.
The organic breathable waterproof mattress protector will provide the best level of comfort for baby and the best protection for a Natural Mat mattress. This revolutionary product is made with two layers of soft organic flannelette and sandwiched in the middle is a thin polyurethane membrane which is child friendly and breathable. Natural Mat’s waterproof mattress protectors come with elastic bands on each corner so they can be attached easily and securely to the mattress. The mattress protectors are machine washable.
A crisp organic cotton percale for the summer and soft flannelette for the winter are suggested for use on top of the protector. Both are unbleached and undyed and machine washable and dryable.
