Royal Pedic : hows it made?
Layering Staple Cotton
Layers of premium quality, staple cotton padding ensure a consistent, supportive sleeping surface. Royal Pedic cotton is pre-compressed and hand-tufted so you won't get lumps or shifting of materials. Royal Pedic uses only the finest cotton batting from California and Texas. Natural materials ventilate body heat and provide greater durability than polyurethane foam - the main padding ingredient found in other mattresses.
Royal Pedic does not use polyurethane due to its limited ability to provide consistent body support over time - the foam cells weaken and collapse with use causing significant indentations in the mattress in many cases, which affects overall back support and comfort. For health reasons Royal Pedic choose to use natural materials instead of polyurethane foam. The human body is like a 98.6 heater that, in combination with polyurethane padding, can trigger allergic, respiratory, and chemical reactions in some people. We look foward to providing you with the healthiest, most comfortable and durable mattress possible.
Royal Pedic uses state-of the-art sewing machinery to ensure the sewing of your mattress is done with exact precision for comfort and durability. Meticulously sewing the binding tape onto the edge of the mattress, they make the mattress for you with the same care we would use if we were making them for ourselves.
Inner padding of Royal Pedic mattresses are hand tufted, compressing it for exceptional orthopedic back support and minimizing body impressions. Hand tufting is a process that company founder, Abe Kaplan learned back in the 1930's while working for Heals of London, a premiere mattress maker, who at the time made mattresses for the Royal Family of England. It takes skilled craftsman much longer to make one of Royal Pedics custom made, hand tufted mattresses, but quality has always been more important to the company than how many they can make in a day.
Most other brands of mattresses are not tufted. The padding materials in these "generic construction" mattresses are merely secured to the perimeter edges of the mattress. The advantage of tufting is less body impressions in the mattress because the padding is pre-compressed with the tufting straps, rather than just resting on the surface.
The Royal-Pedic Box Springs are the most comfortable and durable available: They provide 50% more coils in the center-third of our box spring for extra support where it's needed the most (about 60% of our body weight is located in our torso area). The springs are an extra durable 8 3/4" gauge thickness of wire compared to an average 9 1/2" to 10" gauge wire used by others. Royal Pedics box spring units last for many, many years. The coils are double heat tempered to resist sagging and provide more durability. Double heat tempering is when the coils are baked in an oven, cooled down and then baked in the oven again. The number of coils we use in our box spring unit is 22% more than the industry standard. This higher coil count results in more coils that are closer together, providing additional support for the mattress to prevent lumps in the mattress from developing. The foundation we use to mount our coil springs is an extra wide slat version to provide more support for the coil to rest on - the same width of slat that is required for hotels for the assurance of superior durability.
Royal Pedic uses a wire system called the Webster Lock Grid System to keep the coils in place. Steel wire is woven throughout the tops of the coils to secure the coil in place to eliminate the possibility of any lateral movement.

Naturepedic: What is an organic mattress and why do I want one?
You’ve heard of organic vegetables and organic milk, but what on earth is an organic mattress? Is it really healthier?
Well, quite simply, yes. Organic vegetables are healthier because they do not have chemical pesticide residues. Organic milk is healthier because it comes from cows that are not given artificial chemical hormones. Likewise, organic crib mattresses do not have all the chemicals that regular crib mattresses have.
But that’s just the beginning. Organic mattresses are made with organic and non-toxic materials instead of conventional and chemically questionable materials. Parents and physicians recommend organic crib mattresses as a way to avoid unnecessary exposure to these chemicals.
What are the certification standards for an organic mattress?
Organic mattresses, like all other certified products made with organic fiber and textiles, are certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The largest U.S. GOTS approved certifier is Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO).
In particular, the GOTS standard requires that all fiber and fabrics, with limited exceptions, must be made from certified materials that meet the USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) standard and are processed in accordance with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). All other components (such as innersprings, fire protection, etc.) must meet stringent non-toxic standards. Naturepedic is an OTCO certified organic processor of fiber and textiles and is certified to manufacture organic mattresses and bedding.
Are mattresses labeled "eco" or "green" just as good?
No. "Eco" and "green" are not regulated terms and can be misleading. For example, "plant derived" or "soybean" foam used in many "eco" mattress models are at least 80% petroleum/chemical based and are not really "made of soybeans." "Bamboo" fabric, also common in "eco" models, is typically made using environmentally toxic chemicals with no trace of the bamboo plant in the finished product. Many of these "eco" materials may sound good, but they are not really "natural" and are certainly not focused on eliminating harmful chemicals.

Nook offers a 2-year Limited Warranty on the Pebble Wrap and a a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the Pebble Mattress.

Ferm Living - About
ferm LIVING is a Danish company that aims at designing and manufacturing interior products with a graphic touch. The product range consists of wallpaper, WallStickers, textiles, kitchen items, a large KIDS collection and much more great stuff to come…
ferm LIVING originates from a graphic design agency in Aarhus, Denmark, founded by Trine Andersen in 2005. The company came to life after Trine, mostly for fun, decided to visit a clairvoyant. Trine was quite astonished when the clairvoyand saw a little bird sitting confused on a branch, not knowing which way to fly. This sight was essential for Trine’s decision to follow her dream of starting her own business. When she then founded ferm, the little bird found knew exactly where to go and now sits on top of the company logo.
The company went from being a graphic design agency to a company designs and selling lifestyle products when Trine was re-decoration her house. She was looking for graphic wallpaper, but just couldn’t find the right pattern – and when she found it, it was way too expensive. Trine decided, that other people probably felt the same way, so she decided to take it upon herself to create graphic wallpaper patterns at an affordable price. By February 2006, the very first wallpaper collection hit the streets, and since then things have been going fast! ferm LIVING now operates in many markets around the world and has agents/distributors in Australia, USA, Finland, The Netherlands, UK, Spain, France, Italy, Sweden and Japan.
