KapoK Mattress - Naturally Organic -fr.incl
All of our recently received mattresses have gone to good homes/beds. We will be re-ordering however it will be at least a couple of months before they arrive. Please email us if you wish to register your interest. Afterpay is no longer being offered as their high fees mean that we would have to increase all of our prices across the board therefore penalising those of you who are able to buy outright.
We have 2 x 75cm wide, which when combined make a Queen size, available however they have marks on them. Email us for images if you are interested in giving them good homes. The marks are on the external shell and in no way affect the quality of the KapoK fill.
Filled with luscious sustainable KapoK fiber they are light and easy to handle and resist moisture, mildew / mould along with natural anti-bacterial properties in which dust mites and bed bugs cannot live. No flame retardants. No fumigation / Unfumigated.
Our KapoK mattresses are filled with chemical free, sustainable, true eco, natural fiber, vegan alternative which does not require processing other than cleaning seeds and debris to create the smallest Eco-footprint fiber fill in the world. Long lasting too. Your KapoK mattress will last up to 20 years or more and is fully compostable at the end of its life.
Single - 75cm W x 185cm L x 17cm deep [6kg appx]* = 2 available - makes a Queen size split system. There are small marks on outer fabric...please email if interested and we will send pics. Usually $675 each - Discounted - $525ea. Includes postage within Australia.
We are about to trail a new system of 3 mattresses laid horizontally across the width of the bed instead of our old 2 mattress split system in which the mattresses met vertically down the middle of the bed.
The concept of the 3 mattress system is that you will be able to rotate the middle one, which is where the most compaction occurs, to the top or bottom of the bed to evenly distribute the heights and avoid that mid-bed sag.
Also you will be able to flip, rotate or carry outside to puff up in sunshine with ease. WE would appreciate any feedback you have to offer on this concept.

KapoK comes from the wild-harvested windfall seed pods of a majestic tree. KapoK is soft yet supportive giving us a comfortable, durable, affordable option to chemically treated cotton, wool, faux latex, foams, gels and other petrochemical synthetics that mattresses are commonly made with.
KapoK is hypo-allergenic & non-toxic with its own natural anti-bacterial properties which means that dust mites/ bed bugs cannot live in it. Another unique property is KapoK's hollow fibers; firstly this makes the fiber moisture resistant meaning that your mattress and pillows cannot go moldy or mildewy and will not soak up your sweat.
Secondly this makes your mattresses light and super easy to lift for rotation, flipping or placing out in the sunshine to take advantage of KapoK's other unique property.
As with all natural fibers there is compaction with use however KapoK loves a good sunning and will 'puff' back up when placed in direct sunshine for a couple of hours. Monthly is great but not critical. In the images you can see the difference between when I sunned one of my mattresses for 2 hours in a moderate sun shiny day.
Decades ago when only straw, horse hair or KapoK was used in mattresses KapoK had a reputation for clumping or being lumpy. This was because we did not know that putting our mattresses and pillows out into the sunshine would 'puff' them back up removing the lumps and bumps. Soft yet supportive sleep returned.
KapoK is the most environmentally eco-friendly, economical, fairly traded, naturally organic, vegan fiber to achieve your non-toxic sleep.
KAPOK breathes beautifully because of those hollow fibers so it will not absorb or wick moisture, it is your sheets or under-blankets that take the moisture our bodies loose overnight.
Organic cotton blankets or mattress toppers are available for those of you who would like a layer of organic cotton over the cotton mattress shell. We recommend Organature - product-category/bedroom/
Blessed Earth - denim-mattress-protector-with-zip-in-natural for their very down to earth service and prices. Also BIOME, BHUMI.
Being a natural fiber there is slight compaction over time however KapoK possesses the unique ability to ‘puff back up’ when placed in sunlight. Therefore regular sunning/airing/refreshing [monthly] is super good for refreshing you and your mattress.

Disclaimer: The making of our mattresses is done by expert mattress makers in Indonesia. Whilst all effort is made to ensure a perfect product our mattresses are Hand-Made in work places that are not mass producing factories. They are locally based and employ local people providing low-impact capacity building employment.
Some of the mattresses arrive to us with marks or discoloration on the external shell creating challenges for us as on-sellers as well as our clients who are unprepared for less than perfect product. We check all of our mattresses before sending them on to you so let us know if we miss something.
These marks or discoloration are purely external, on the external fabric shell only and do not affect the quality of the mattress itself nor the high grade kapok fiber within the shell. We are working with the mattress makers to reduce to a minimum any issues with the shells so that our mattresses look as fabulous as they feel.
