The TFS Waterproof Cotton Mattress Protector comes from cotton grown from non-GMO organic cotton grown using sustainable crop rotation. Their fabric printing is done with low-impact fiber reactive or natural dyes, water based inks and pigments. When you purchase this organic cotton product, you are benefiting not only the environment but the hard work of the farmers who use sustainable methods. Since the cotton used is also a Fair Trade product, the farmers who grow it are paid fair prices above the market rate to match the value of the fruits of their labour.
While the fabric is organic cotton, the waterproof polyurethane lamination is not organic. However, polyurethane is the cleanest, safest, and most durable water barrier available on the market today. It is 100% waterproof, breathable, inert, free of VOCs & PVC, burns clean, and does not off gas or leach chemicals. At this time it is impossible to create a fully organic mattress protector that is also 100% waterproof and can withstand regular use and laundering over a long period of time.
As always staff are knowledgeable, attentive, and take all the time needed to really help with feeling good about an expensive purchase. When I unwrapped the mattress I was overwhelmed by such a lovely smell of wool and cotton that I did a little dance! Previous purchases of conventional mattresses had me airing out my house for days and not even enjoying sleeping on the mattress for days due to off-gassing. This organic mattress with wool topper is like sleeping on a supportive cloud! I was having trouble sleeping recently due to stress and hot flashes. This mattress is so comfortable, breathable and nice smelling that I can really relax the minute I get into bed and my good deep sleeps have been restored. Thank you Resthouse! Your products and knowledge are impressive, and I recommend you to anyone who wants to be in good health and needs a good nights sleep!
