Several weeks ago, a new friend visited me in Wickford, Jonathan Laplante. Jonathan works for our manufacturer up in Canada that develops our fantastic line of Naturally Organic Mattresses. He came down because, like Chris and Ted, he was just as excited about The Clean Bedroom's newest showroom!
Naturally Organic is TCB's private premium label and Jonathan came down not only to visit the newest store, but to also give me some interesting information about the creation process on the mattress he makes for us and how they greened development and manufacturing processes.
The mattress that we offer is European tufted, the bolt stitching going through the other side of the mattress, holding everything in place better to prevent the "dreaded dip" that forms over time. The mattresses extra-strong border also aid in preventing shifts in the mattress and create continuous, medium-firm support for the body.
The organic cotton is hand-picked in Peru and not treated with any chemicals. A layer of wool is placed within the mattress to act as a dust-mite repellent and to pull moisture away from the body, while you sleep. Also, wool is a natural flame retardant, so their is no need for any industrial chemicals!
One of the biggest improvements over your standard mattress is in the way our mattress is supported. We use a kiln-dried spruce wood slat foundation, rather than a box spring. This a sturdier support and complement to our mattress. This wood is harvested in Quebec, Canada and done so in a sustainable way. No glues or chemicals are applied to the foundation, to keep away odors and eliminate off-gassing, much like the mattress itself.
At the end of the conversation, Jonathan made me as proud to offer this Naturally Organic mattress here at The Clean Bedroom as he was to offer it to us. It is as he told me, "A luxurious, high-end mattress that is environmentally responsible, will keep you healthy and will last for many years."
I tend to agree with him, merely by laying on it myself and watching people close their eyes and relax.
The only question left is…do you agree with him? You can only answer that by trying it out yourself!
