Every great idea starts with a moment of inspiration. Ours, rather unusually, came on the high seas, some twenty years ago. Both keen sailors, we struggled to understand why mattresses on boats were so uncomfortable. So, on the banks of the River Exe, we began hand-making natural fibre mattresses that breathed, were fabulously comfortable, and fitted neatly into a boat’s awkward spaces.
Today, Naturalmat operates in the marine, nursery, adult and hotel mattress and bedding markets, but the founding principles of the firm have stayed the same : making premium handmade beds and mattresses using natural and organic materials from sustainable sources.
At Naturalmat, we believe that people, not machines, make a superior, long-lasting product. Our team of craftspeople ensure every stitch, every fibre, every tufting button and every cover is painstakingly created, teased and checked. When a mattress leaves our factory, we are confident it will deliver years of comfortable, healthy and relaxing sleep.
