Unlike feather beds, which involve cruelty to animals, our wool mattress topper, while equally soft and fluffy, is made from cruelty-free organically grown European wool in organic cotton casing. It's made entirely in Canada from the purest raw materials that guarantee peaceful and chemical-free sleep, night after night. And it's sweatshop-free, of course.
At the site of quilting/tufting, we use an ultra-soft round felted wool or organic cotton disks in place of buttons to hold the seam in place (even though in the photo above, it's hard to tell from looking that the round disks are not hard buttons).
All of our Euro-Luxury Bedding products - mattresses, foundations, pillows, comforters, and mattress protectors contain pure, organically grown and harvested cotton.
Cotton grown in industrialized countries is saturated with pesticides and herbicides and absorb all the chemicals that modern fertilizers deposit in the soil. Machine picked, it is full of impurities, oil, leaves, and dirt.
The cotton we use is cultivated and hand picked in the traditional cooperative manner that has been followed for centuries in the Cañete and Chincha valleys high in the Peruvian Andes. It is grown organically without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or defoliants to fertilize the crop, control plant growth or fight pests. No synthetic chemicals are used to strip the leaves in preparation for the harvest or during the manufacturing process.
Hand picking ensures that it is the cleanest, purest most resilient cotton fiber available. Europe's oldest and most prestigious certification agency KRAV of Sweden has certified our organic cotton. Their stamp of approval is not only a guarantee of organic standards, but also that social rights are observed in the production of our cotton. All the cotton used in our batting, filling and fabrics is this clean, pure, organic product.
It is woven to very high standards into the finest, softest fabrics, in Germany and Switzerland. The wool in our products comes exclusively from Texel, an island off the coast of Holland. It has a population of 13,300 people and over 100,000 sheep. The people of Texel have been raising sheep for over 600 years, and have developed a unique breed of sheep that is both hardy and produces wool of unrivalled quality.
Texel Sheep have adapted to a very windy and harsh environment to produce a unique, long wool fiber with a high crinkle factor and high natural lanolin content. Products made from Texel wool are softer, thicker, warmer, and longer lasting. It is especially well suited to sleep products because of its superior durability, insulation, and moisture regulation. Texel wool is harvested from a sustainable source without detriment or harm to the animal. Each sheep is shorn every spring producing about 11lbs if high quality wool.
The sheep are raised organically on a land that has never been used for agriculture and thus, has been protected from chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides. Using craftsmanship based on experience and environmental sensibility, the raw fleece is processed without the use of any dyes or bleaches. Bleached wool contains toxic compounds including highly toxic dioxin, something we all can do without.
The wool is cleaned using a unique chemical free process that produces exceptionally clean wool, while retaining high natural lanolin content. All wool used in Obasan's products must abide by strict requirements to be considered for use. In this way we are able to ensure the purity of our finished product.
Our wool must be free of any sort of plastic, baling twine, and mothballs. Fleece must be well skirted; no mat of hay, timothy heads, burrs, belly hair, manure, etc. Processing is restricted, usual processes performed on wool are not allowed, such as; (1) Carbonizing, a process which uses carbonic acid to dissolve chaff, (2) Shrink proofing, (3) Chemical scale removal, and (4) Moth proofing.
Any process that uses chemicals or produces toxins in the wool is strictly forbidden. Finished batting can only be washed with vegetable based soaps instead of chemical pesticides. All fiber lubrication, static control, or wetting agents are vegetable based and petroleum free. Finally the wool must be stored in an unscented atmosphere.
Our hypo-allergenic organic cotton, wool, and hemp futon mattresses, mattress toppers, barrier cloth covers, and mattress pads are perfect for people suffering from chemical sensitivities, allergies, and other allergic reactions occasioned by chemically treated bedding products.
