Kapok Mattresses - incl fr.

Goldilocks Natural Bedding Mattresses are filled with luscious sustainable Kapok fiber. They are light and easy to handle and come in a poly/cotton shell that resists moisture, mildew / mold and staining. 

KapoK mattresses are a chemical free sustainable natural fiber vegan alternative that 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, latex, foams, gels and other petrochemical synthetics.

Naturally organic KapoK fiber 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 mildew 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 'puff' back up. 

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 fulfill for your non-toxic sleep.

Why poly-cotton shells you ask? The reasoning is that because KapoK fiber fill is naturally moisture resistant it would be best to make the shell using moisture resistant fabric. You can then use a cotton under-blanket or mattress topper / protector that is much easier to wash than the shell of a mattress in cases of liquid spills or sweats/perspiration. KAPOK will not absorb or wick moisture however it does breathe beautifully because of those hollow fibers.

Organic cotton blankets or mattress toppers are available for those of you who would like a layer of organic cotton over the poly cotton mattress shell. We recommend Organature - https://organature.com/product-category/bedroom/ 

or Blessed Earth - https://blessedearth.com.au/collections/protectors/products/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 airing/refreshing [monthly] is super good for refreshing you and your mattress. 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.
