Certified organic luxury mattresses for adults, made by the same trusted family business that makes certified organic mattresses for babies and kids. Four models allow you to choose certified organic latex, wool, or cotton for padding over an organic encased coil innerspring. These are the same super-comfortable innersprings used in high-end mattresses, with the added benefit of Naturepedic’s certified organic fabrics and fibers, and non-toxic accessories. Quilted certified organic cotton fabrics are used for covers for all models. Not only are all the materials and components individually certified organic, the mattress as a whole is certified organic per the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

This company is about wool–sleeping on it and under it, cuddling with it, and loving the wool and the sheep and the land. Founder Eliana Jantz has been working with wool as long as I’ve been writing about natural products and her daughter, Sarah now owns the company. Eliana led the development of Eco Wool, “a collaboration which involves the sheep growers, wool processors, product makers and promoters in gradually developing an infrastructure which ensures environmentally friendly and sustainable practices and fair prices to the woolgrower.” All within a few hundred miles distance, the sheep are pastured, the wool is milled, and the products are sewn by local women in a renovated storefront, all in site of majestic Mt. Shasta in northern California. Outfit your entire bed with their unique heirloom quality wool mattresses (all-wool, latex/wool, and innerspring/wool), wool mattress topper, comforter, and pillows and you won’t need to count sheep to get a good night’s sleep anymore! They also offer solid wood bed frames, an array of organic cotton sheeting and accessories for your natural bedroom. Shepherd’s Dream recently has expanded and now has a showroom in Ashland, Oregon. They love visitors and offer excellent customer service. Be sure to tell them “Debra sent me.”

They also make a quantum calming mat that enhances deep rejuvenative sleep, protects from EMFs and cell phone radiation, increases body circulation, protects from pests (bedbugs, mold, dust mites, fleas), provides ‘grounding’ similar to walking barefoot on the earth, and much more (recommended for home use and travel).

100% handwoven hand-dyed cotton rope hammocks. I’ve included this here as the simplest thing to sleep on. “Yellow Leaf Hammocks is breaking the cycle of extreme poverty through sustainable job creation. Our artisan weavers and their families were previously trapped in extreme poverty and debt slavery. Now they are empowered to earn a stable, healthy income through dignified work (we call this a “prosperity wage”). This is the basis for a brighter future, built on a hand up, not a handout.”
“We are a bedding parts supplier. We are here to enable you to make your own chemical free, natural bedding, be it pillows, mattresses, blankets, comforters, etc.” Because they are a parts supplier and not a mattress manufacturer, you make your own mattress with the materials you choose. It’s as simple as opening a big zippered bag, filling it with materials, and zipping it up. Or you can make your own completely from scratch with very natural materials in hard to find sizes. Componentsinclude wool from local farms, 100% natural latex, and GOTS certified organic fabric. She also offers sewing patterns for those who would like to save even more by sewing their own mattress ticking, and custom fire-retardant-free latex cuts for any DIY furniture project.

Makes and sells the Eco-Cloud line of latex mattresses in the San Francisco Bay Area, from certified organic materials. “There are no fire retardant chemicals and no polyurethane foam in any of our mattresses.” These mattresses are unique in that they have removable zipper covers, which allows you to air your mattress on a sunny day, “and also allows us to change the firmness of your mattress after you have received it. You have up to three months to test the mattress and have any adjustment necessary in your home.” They also make and sell pillows filled with organic wool, organic cotton, natural kapok, natural latex, and more, in a variety of thicknesses and sizes. Plus foundations made from natural materials, toppers, and natural bed frames.
“An heirloom bed for the new paradigm.” A unique bed made entirely of layers of organic wool felt—the latest creation from Eliana Jantz, who has been exploring the common threads of bedding that weave through indigenous cultures for more than thirty years. This is the most basic bed, I can’t even really call it a mattress, because it’s simply layers of handmade wool felts, which can be separated for washing, sunning and airing. It’s the simplest of beds. You choose the degree of support with the number of layers, placed on a wood slat frame.

Luxury goes organic with these bedding items made with cotton, wool, French linen, and hemp. Futons and mattresses, mattress covers, top quality organic bed linens, comforters and duvet covers, pillows, blankets–all made from organic materials. Also mattress covers and organic wool moisture pad protector. Many items are exclusive to this site. "Our hemp products are, of course, sustainably made with no sweatshop, child, or underwaged labor involved at any step of the cultivation or manufacturing process — this is something which we have taken pride in from the very beginning."
This is the site I recommend most for inexpensive natural fiber mattresses. “Handcrafted natural fiber mattresses, pillows, and accessories without toxic chemicals” since 1981. They make all-cotton mattresses without springs because “the use of steel in mattresses is responsible for enormous amounts of air and water pollution every year, not to mention the devastation that strip mining has on the land where coal and iron ore are extracted.” In addition, each and every mattress has been made entirely by hand. “I can put a mattress-crafter in a room with a natural fabric mattress case, a bale of cotton, a needle, some thread, and just her two hands, and she will come out with a 100% handmade mattress that is more comfortable, more supportive, will not poison the earth or the sleeper and costs less than $300.” Made from “green” cotton scrap fibers (they are too short to spin for textiles) which have had had no chemical processing after harvesting–no bleaching, fungicides or dyes. They also make pillows filled with kapok, buckwheat, wool, buckwheat/wool, or organic cotton, wool toppers, and “The Stowaway”–a smaller version of their mattress that can be rolled up, tied, and carried for an exercise mat or traveling. Also organic cotton sheets, 100% cotton mattress pads, and bedroom furniture.”The environmental stewards at White Lotus believe that if the cost of saving the earth and protecting one’s health was out of reach for most people’s budgets, true progress would never be made. For that reason, in part, White Lotus is very efficient with resources and keeps its prices where almost everyone can take part in making the world a better place.” 100% of their energy is supplied by wind power.
