CRIB ~ Abundant Earth's
Natural Organic Cotton Innerspring Mattress
is the perfect organic sleep surface for your most precious angel.
Made in the USA ***
Abundant Earth Natural Organic Innerspring Crib Mattress sets the
for the way all organic cotton crib mattresses should be made. The
Cotton Innerspring Crib Mattress keeps your baby comfortable and
safe! No more worrying about the effects of toxic pesticides, dyes and
flame retardants on
your baby's skin, as our crib mattress is ultra safe for your infant or
Our mattresses are made in an
ultra-clean mattress factory/warehouse, where no flame-retardants,
fabric softeners or any other
chemicals are applied to any products. Our premium organic cotton
arrives paper-wrapped and sealed in a thick organic
cotton fabric shell and is kept that way until it is used to make your
mattress. These organic cotton bails
and bolts are stored in their own special storage bays, free from
any non-organic products. Finally, our organic cotton is fresh, and is
used within 3 months of arrival in the factory/warehouse. Just before
leaving our warehouse, your mattress is wrapped in an inert plastic
wrap to help protect the mattress on its journey to your home. The
plastic leaves no residue and keeps your mattress clean and fresh until
it arrives in your bedroom.
We first start with the finest innerspring units available anywhere.
Unlike many organic cotton bed manufacturers that use lower quality
to cut expenses (and often hide this by boasting about high coil counts
rather than focusing on the quality of the innerspring unit), we start
with the finest European offset coil spring system developed. The top
coil flexes independently for maximum sensitivity to body contours,
maximum body support,
and minimum friction. These old-fashioned Swiss designed heat-tempered
coils last longer than the "modern" innerspring coils used in most
mattresses. We don't want you coming back because you wore your
Abundant Earth mattress out in just a few years. We want you coming
back because our hand-made mattresses exceeded your expectations for
comfort, organic cleanliness, and exceptional quality and durability
and you want to add another of our famous mattresses to your household.
Our Innerspring Mattress
- Precise diameter and even coil barrel, as well as heat
tempered for longest lasting firm support.
- 100% working wire, every part of the surface flexes.
- Open, unknotted tall coils are more flexible and sensitive
to body contours.
- Smaller coil diameter creates greater surface coverage.
- Designed for edge support; the barrel of each coil is
positioned under the
border rod for support right up to the edge.
- Clipped border wire and side support springs for firm edge
- Double heat tempered for extreme durability.
the innerspring and the organic cotton padding, ideally some form of
insulating material is used in the manufacture of organic cotton
mattresses. This material is supposed to both keep the cotton from
"packing" into the springs, and provide an insulation barrier between
the metal springs and the cotton (which can wick heat away from your
body). Other organic cotton mattress manufacturers use a wire screen
between the innerspring and cotton. This screen may have a fancy name
to help convince customers that their bed contains some high-tech
flexible insulator screen product. Actually, this screen does keep the
cotton from packing into the springs, but provides little, if any,
insulation. To compensate, the wire screen is then wrapped in "virgin
paper cording." This "virgin paper cording" is essentially a very
cardboard product. The problem is that cardboard is a
paper fiber that breaks down over time, but more importantly "virgin
cording" is manufactured with formaldehyde.
Now who wants to order an organic cotton bed with formaldehyde
as one of its components? Still other organic mattress companies often
use support pads that are comprised of ground up scraps of various
synthetic scraps of materials that are glued to a nylon webbed
backing. Rest assured, Abundant Earth only
insulator/support pad made from our own high quality 100%
100% Organic Cotton
Once we have selected the innerspring firmness you have selected,
we then wrap the innerspring unit with
generous layers of pre-compressed, first cut staple 100% chemical-free
and fire retardant-free certified organic cotton padding.
No polyurethane foam or polyester padding is used in our mattresses, so
you can be assured of a healthier sleeping environment.
The mattress is then covered by our premium 100% organic cotton fabric (known
in the industry as "ticking")
to give you years of refreshing sleep. Our certified organic cotton ticking is
woven into a beautiful comfort-soft fabric without the use of harsh
chemicals. Our organic cotton fabric ticking is the ultimate
choice for people with chemical sensitivities.
All of our mattresses are made by hand using age-old European mattress
tufting techniques. After
the mattress is covered with our luxurious 100% organically grown
fabric, it is then expertly hand tufted with European tufting straps to
the cotton padding, and maximize orthopedic back support and comfort.
Our European tufting
straps are superior to the machine-made "Button-Tufting" method used by
many organic mattress companies. The button or sting tufting method of
securing the cotton batting in the mattress uses string to hold the
cotton (and possibly wool) in place. These strings can stretch and even
snap making sleeping uncomfortable. They can also begin to work their
way through the cotton and be felt pressing into your back. This
Button-Tufting method also uses round buttons to compress the cotton
padding. Unfortunately, many of these buttons can become loose, break
or even get pulled out from the mattress also making it uncomfortable
to lie on. By contrast, our European tufting method uses reinforced
straps, which are sewn from one side of the mattress to the other and
are then twisted to hold in place. This method brings added comfort and
durability to our organic cotton mattress.
Our uncompromising commitment to using only the finest materials,
combined with our hand
crafted care ensures that this mattress will provide years of
consistent comfort and support.
The Natural Organic Crib Mattress is only available in very firm. We
offer the crib mattresses this way as an aid in protecting against SIDS
(Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Studies indicate that a very firm
mattress as well as a mattress free of chemicals may aid in
significantly reducing SIDS.

*Flame Retardants, the Federal
Government and Wool:
All of Abundant Earth's organic cotton mattresses

in the United States to be treated with a flame retardant. However,
don't panic! Keep reading.... An exemption is allowed for people with
medical need. Because the Natural Organic Cotton Only Innerspring Mattresses
contains no chemical flame retardants or natural wool, a medical
naturopath's, or chiropractor's prescription (must be licensed in your
is required to purchase this bed
in order to meet federal flame retardant requirements. This prescription may be faxed to us at
847-485-5169 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and should say something
like "Patient needs mattress without chemical flame retardants."
Thoughts from an Abundant
Earth Mattress Enthusiast:
Wool as a Flame Retardant:
Some manufacturers add "natural" flame retardants to their
fabric ticking such as boric
acid. However, we strongly recommend against these products as they
still may pose their own set of hazards to one's health and well-being.
By contrast, a natural flame retardant we do recommend for those who
are interested is natural chemical-free wool. Because wool acts as a
flame retardant, our mattresses with added wool, such as the Natural
Organic Cotton with Wool Innerspring Mattress, do NOT require a
prescription. Wool is extremely durable and also has the added benefit
of retaining heat (keeping you warmer) when it's cold and dry, and
cooler when it's hot and sweaty (wool wicks away moisture helping to
keep you cooler). Wool also helps (just a little) with dust mite
resistance and it add just a hint of softness to your mattress. If you
are concerned about maximizing dust mite protection for your mattress,
you will still want the added protection of one of our
Cotton Barrier Cloth Mattress Covers. Also, you may
wish to look at our
Organic Wool Puddle Pads and Moisture Protectors
for extra protection for your Abundant Earth Organic Crib Mattress.
"Thanks so much for your great products. Before
purchasing an organic mattress set and bedding I researched
many different companies and was shocked to discover that many so
called 'organic products' were not made with with totally chemical free
materials. In fact, I had read many reports where customers actually
got sick from some of them! After becoming very discouraged
and confused, I finally came across Abundant Earth. The first
thing that impressed me was the option of a mattress set with
no latex. I purchased a queen mattress with [natural wool and
organic cotton]. When I got the mattress set I noticed an
odor and immediately called Abundant Earth. I was reassured
that this was a natural cotton odor and that it would disappear in a
few days. I am happy to say after three days it was
completely gone and I absolutely love my new bed and organic sheets and
pillows! As a person who suffered severely and eventually got
quite ill from a conventional flame retardant
mattress I am overjoyed to finally sleep in a comfortable healthy
bed. No more waking up with a puffy face, under-eye circles
and headaches every morning. Also, thanks for
getting back to me so quickly with the many questions I had."
