THE ESSENTIALS FOR STYLING A SUSTAINABLE BED
With each of our lives becoming busier by the moment we wanted to help you curate a sustainable bed which inspires you to slow down, reconnect and enjoy a restful night sleep while knowing you’re supporting the planet and rewarding yourself with a high quality slumber to benefit your health.
THE DIFFERENCE OF AN ORGANIC MATTRESS
Have you ever thought about how your mattress is actually made? With so many hours of the night spent sleeping on your mattress it’s important to know exactly what you’re sleeping on. We recommend choosing a mattress made from 100% pure latex which is free from harmful and toxic substances, as well as researching the production process, certifications and treatments used to ensure they are sustainable and have your health in mind.
Our Natural Organic Latex Mattress is one of the world’s most awarded mattresses, featuring 100% organic latex which is hypoallergenic, sustainably harvested and free from harmful chemicals like Pentachlorophenol and Tetrachlorophenol. Our mattress also features a 100% Australian wool quilted cover and underlay which is sustainably produced and helps you maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night, regardless of the season.

CHOOSING A SUSTAINABLE BED
Your bed is one furniture piece that will be part of your home for many years to come, so it’s important to invest the time into finding the perfect piece to enhance your slumber without any hidden costs to the environment and local communities.
Each of our authentic pieces are made consciously and sustainably, using only responsibly sourced materials without compromising on quality or craft. While also providing you with a transparent chain of custody which connects you to their natural origin.
The easiest way you can ensure your bed is sustainably produced is to ask questions and educate yourself on each stage of the design process from the sourcing of materials right through to the packaging your bed is delivered in.
BEDDING WITH BENEFITS
Over the past few seasons we’ve seen linen bedding become more prominent due to its relaxed aesthetic and long list of benefits. As a sustainable bedding choice, linen’s natural elasticity ensures that it retains its shape and softens over time to deliver you consistent quality for longer. Linen also benefits your sleep with its temperature-regulating qualities, which keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.
When shopping for bed linen we always recommend choosing linen which is soft to touch at first and has a considerable amount of weight in it to ensure it’s quality. Another thing to pay attention to is where the linen is cultivated itself, as most premium brands will source theirs from Europe, including In The Sac bed linen which is woven from 100% premium flax, grown in the Netherlands exclusively for the brand.
