What is a Vegan Mattress?

Oct 14, 2012

 No, it doesn't mean its made of lettuce, it means it is made without animal products.

When shopping for an organic mattress or natural mattress, the way these beds are usually produced is with latex and wool. Wool is a great material for adding loft, breathability and importantly, allows mattress manufacturers to pass the federal fire retardant requirements. However, if you are someone who elects to not use any animal products in your life, wool is out of the question. That puts you back into the realm of chemical fire retardants. But if you don't want synthetics AND don't want animal products, what are your options for a Vegan Mattress?

A Vegan mattress would be one with no animal products or animal testing in the production of the mattress. Nest Bedding offers a unique solution for those wishing to sleep on a truly chemical-free and vegan mattress. 

The Nest Build A Nest mattress making kits are designed with you in mind. You can create your own custom mattress from components you choose, and the best part is you don't have to chose animal products, and you can choose not to make your mattress fire retardant. It's your choice.

What we provide are alternatives to wool, such as Kapok layers, Buckwheat Hull layers and Millet Hull layers to add breathability and softness.
