Our story

Our story

When we first decided to make mattresses back in 1999, we took a different approach to the rest of the trade. We could not understand why the majority of mattresses were made using man-made synthetic materials that were neither biodegradable nor from a sustainable source. What's more, they provided questionable sleep and supportive benefits to the mattress.

We believed that natural fibres were best, and we set out to make a mattress that contained just that – without any chemical additives whatsoever. We also wanted to make sure that our packaging was environmentally friendly. Since then we have continued to develop our range and improve our products, remaining true to our guiding principles.

All the ingredients that go into a Naturalmat product are 100% natural and from a sustainable resource that is harvested according to Fair Trade principles. Where possible, we buy from local sources and we always make an effort to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. At the end of their life all our materials are 100% biodegradable, so they will return to nature as nature intended.

All our mattresses are made by hand in our purpose-built factory in Topsham, on the banks of the River Exe, Devon. We believe that people, not machines, make a superior, longer lasting product. Our team of craftspeople ensure every stitch, every fibre, every tufting button and every cover is painstakingly created, teased and checked. When a mattress leaves our factory, we are confident it will give years of long lasting comfort.

Natural sleep for life.
