A non-toxic, completely chemical and animal product free children’s mattress.
We have spent years developing completely chemical free and safe fire-retardant materials.
Over the last year we have been inundated by customers looking for a Vegan and cruelty-free Children’s mattress, without any chemicals and without wool - so we developed one. Using our years of experience of fabric construction, we created a mattress that passed the strict UK fire regulations giving it an UKAS accredited fire certificate. The first time achieved without wool.
Why should you be concerned about the chemicals? There is overwhelming research which shows that fire retardant chemicals can damage your child’s health and development - see more here.
Without using fire retardant chemicals or wool, it is very difficult to pass the strict fire regulations which all kids mattresses must achieve. Our Vegan Children’s Mattress contains absolutely no fire-retardant chemicals, no animal products and no dangerous residues that can be inhaled or absorbed but it is totally fire safe and meets all the UK fire safety laws.
Each of our Vegan Children’s bed mattresses are handcrafted to order in Devon and side stitched together with flax thread. Unlike 99% of other manufacturers – we don’t use solvents or adhesives in the mat construction,
Inside the mattress we use natural cotton and low carbon footprint polyester. Polyester is it’s a very simple polymer with very little off gassing and therefore non-allergenic when used next to the skin. The mix of cotton and polyester allows maximum air flow to help keep the mattress extra dry and reduce moisture build-up.
The Vegan Children’s Mattress is filled with a central two-inch-deep pocket sprung unit with a thick comfort layer of Cotton Rich felt and a special polyester on each side. It is around 16 cm in depth and has a side zip (for manufacture only) in the middle of the edge. It is tufted with polyester tufts rather than using felt or metal buttons.
Our Vegan Children’s Mattress is also eco-friendly and recyclable. Polyester is incredibly strong and gives great longevity! Furthermore, it has a carbon footprint of about 3.8 Kg CO2e/Kg. This is about 40% less than that of cotton due its minimal use of water and its incredible recyclability that give it a prominent place in environmental circular economy.
All our mattresses meet the Stockholm Convention for recycling and are labelled as such.
We offer these mattress in a traditional single (3′) and also a small single (2’6) width, both of which are 6’3 in length. We also offer a longer single suitable for use on European frames (3′ x 6’6).
Following the increased popularity of high sleeper frames with a larger mattress at the bottom, we are now offering the Children's Mattresses in a small double (4') and standard double (4'6) size. Although these are double sizes they are Children's Mattresses and not suitable for use by adults. Please note these come rolled for delivery.
The Vegan Children’s Mattresses are aimed at children over 2 years old and will be suitable to around 12 years old (dependent on weight of the child – suggested maximum of 9 stone). It is a medium-firm support mattress which is recommended by The Children’s Sleep Charity.

We also suggest purchasing a Premium Waterproof Mattress Protector with your children's mattress which can be selected from the drop down menu. These protectors are waterproof while remaining air vapor porous allowing body heat to easily pass through. The Premium Waterproof Mattress Protector also serves as a barrier for dust mites and allergens, which provides for healthy, irritant-free sleep. We are unable to supply the waterproof protector in the double sizes. Please see our Quilted Cotton Mattress Protector as an alternative.
Delivery is usually within one week from ordering. A delivery date will be arranged by email on receipt of your order.
All children's mattresses must pass the stringent UK fire regulations. The majority of mattresses for children do so by using fire retardant chemicals. Why should you be concerned about this?
