Harnessing the amazing potential of natural & organic materials, The Camping with Soul Naturalmat.

Posted by Sales 13/10/2017 0 Comment(s)

In 2012 we teamed up with luxury organic Mattress makers Naturalmat to create the Camping with Soul Naturalmat, a one of a kind natural fibre roll bed designed for camping.

Naturalmat Founders Mark Tremlett and Peter Tindall started hand-making natural fibre products because of a dislike of the usual synthetic mattresses that can be found on boats.

Using only natural materials like organic lambswool from local sheep, Naturalmat craft their products by hand in a factory surrounded by green fields and mooing cows.

Our camping bed is made by hand in Devon with a core of recycled denim that’s shredded to create a comfy level of padded support, this is then surrounded by organic lambswool, which is sourced from Soil Association certified organic farms in the west country and processed in Devon.
 
The wool is washed clean on the edge of Dartmoor (using water from the river Dart) which is then filtered and returned to the river with no environmental impact. In the final wash a natural anti-bug solution derived from essential oils of lemon, eucalyptus and lavender treatment is added.  This makes the lambswool anti-dust mite, anti-bed bug and anti-moth AND mosquito repellent!

The camping mat is then covered in a traditional blue-and-white-striped quilted cotton ticking. The chocolate brown webbing straps, attached to the mat with Velcro tabs, make it easy to roll up, and provide a handy handle to carry it around. The cover is removable and washable.

The mats have a Velcro strip along one side to enable two singles to be stuck together to make a generous double. There is even a covering piece to protect the Velcro from unwanted pieces of nature when it has no partner to stick to!

Naturalmat have harnessed the amazing potential of natural & organic materials - so much healthier, more functional and sustainable.  Here’s a list of materials used in our luxury mattresses:

Organic Lambswool

Our organic lambswool is sourced from Soil Association certified farms in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall, all local to Naturalmat HQ.

  • Naturally fire retardant, allowing us to avoid chemical fire retardants.
  • A superb insulator, trapping heat when you need it and dispersing it when you don’t
  • Naturally anti microbial to help prevent dust mites
  • Sourced locally from our friendly organic farmers

Cotton

All the cotton we use is 100% unbleached, undyed natural cotton. Our cotton covers have a herringbone weave, making them resilient and long lasting

Our cotton sheets and bedding are certified in accordance with GOTS (Global Organic Technical Standards) by the Soil Association.

All our cotton herringbone covers are treated with a natural geraniol treatment to prevent bed bugs and dust mites.
