Our Mission

Scientists are still working out exactly why we need sleep. Indeed it’s a question that has baffled people for many centuries. Some believe we sleep so that our bodies have a chance to renew themselves after a busy day, but it turns out that the amount of energy we save by sleeping is about the same amount of energy that’s in one piece of toast! We need sleep otherwise cognitive skills such as memory and innovative thinking are badly effected, so sleep clearly plays a significant role in the way our brain functions and develops. Without sleep we are grumpy, groggy and irritable; concentration becomes more difficult and our attention span shortens considerably.

So a good night’s sleep is essential for both our physical and mental health, and doing everything we can to ensure that we sleep well ought to be a priority. Choosing a mattress and bedding made with natural materials will help your body regulate its own temperature. Wool is proven to create the very best sleeping environment because of it’s ability to wick moisture away.

Every mattress is hand made to order. This means that we can make exactly what you want whether it be longer, shorter, wider or narrower. So if you need a tiny mattress for a converted attic or an extra large mattress for a master bedroom, we can make it for you.

Speak with our specialist team and discuss your needs. They’ll be able to talk through all the options, and give you great advice about which mattress is best for you. Once that decision is made, then there are lots of extras that we can offer. You may need corner cut outs for a four poster, or perhaps you’d like your mattress monogrammed in a particular colour embroidery thread. Zip and link is a popular choice as is a dual sided mattress for those of different weights.

Not only can we produce a mattress and upholstered base in the shape and size you want, but we can also match them to your decor. We work with a well established manufacturer of cotton and linen fabrics so just ask for a swatch. An upholstered headboard gives the finishing touch to your lovely new bed. We make these from our organic materials so please contact us to discuss your needs.
