Soaring Heart, the manufacturer of these organic shikibutons, futons and bedrolls, is certified by GOTS to make a long list of organic home textiles. Most mattress and bedding manufacturers who purchase organic materials have certificates issued in the name of their suppliers, but Soaring Heart is one of the few that have gone to the trouble and expense of certifying each product they manufacture.
Their certified organic mattresses, futons, shikibutons and bedding are made from materials that offer intrinsic health benefits such as thermal regulation, dust mite resistance and pain relief. The company’s philosophy is “better health through sleep” and they consistently set the bar high for what a quality bedding product can offer. Conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and chronic pain can be positively affected by sleeping on a better mattress. People suffering from allergies, multiple chemical sensitivities, and other auto-immune problems may also find comfort in organic products because they are free of synthetic materials as well as chemicals.
In conventional bedding products, fire retardant chemicals are used in order to pass the government-required flame tests, but Soaring Heart’s mattresses and related products (and all of the other bedding items we carry) pass these tests by using wool…absolutely no synthetic materials or chemical flame retardants are added! They use only certified organic cotton, wool and latex in their luxurious, comfy, chemical-free bedding.
