As you may know, traditional mattress manufacturers use many harmful chemicals in their mattresses. This White Lotus Home Crib Mattress, nicknamed the Dreamton, is made from USDA and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified Organic Cotton and the outer fabric is also 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. Each mattress is crafted by hand and contains an inner core of unbleached, untreated cotton batting.
It starts with 18 to 20 layers of cotton, measuring about 26 to 30" thick, that is compressed during a process spanning three days. This labor-intensive technique results in a final product measuring 3.5" thick and is immensely firm, so much so that it cannot be bent or folded. The mattress is made firm to reduce the risk of SIDS and meets the most stringent of safety standards as set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Each crib mattress contains an interior cotton core wrapped in a layer of virgin lambswool from within an unbleached, 100% cotton case. With wool as the outermost layer, there is no need for fire retardant chemicals because wool is a naturally fire retardant fibre.
Free from all forms of chemicals and dyes, this White Lotus Home Dreamton Organic Crib Mattress is truly the purest option in the market and receives our Rugs by Roo stamp of approval! And did we mention that this mattress is handmade in the USA? It takes an artisan about 6 months to learn how to create a White Lotus Home crib mattress.
As you're probably aware, cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the cotton plant and grows commonly all over the world. It is a renewable and eco-friendly material that is easy to clean and maintain. Cotton offers an unparalleled feeling of softness, comfort and warmth like no other fibres.
Things you might not know about cotton, however, is that conventional cotton farms uses heavy amounts of pesticides in the crop fields that not only poses a health risk for the farmers but also results in the cotton fibres being leached with toxins and chemicals that can impact your health.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides and toxic chemicals. It doesn't damage the soil, has less impact on the air, uses less water and less energy than conventional cotton. The result is a cotton that offers the best of both worlds - safe for the farmers and safe for the end consumer.
