Proper, natural ingredients for a proper natural sleep
Our beds don’t start life in a factory but on the Harrison Spinks 300 acre farm in North Yorkshire.
It is here that we rear sheep on rich untreated pastures and tend fertile fields of hemp and flax crops. Our hemp and flax crops produce super absorbent fibres, that help to absorb moisture from the mattress while you sleep, keeping you cool and dry. We use zero pesticides to grow our hemp and flax. Instead these fibres are grown the way we believe they should be: naturally. This greatly lessens the impact on the environment by reducing CO2 emissions, which helps us and you rest easier.
We are committed to a glue-free, foam-free and FR chemical treatment free future, due to this each mattress is 100% recyclable and zero to landfill.
Luxuriously sustainable fillings
We know every single inch of the mattresses we make. Every mattress we make is 100% FR chemical free.
We have strategic measures in place to make sure only the best materials go into our mattresses. We only ever make beds that we’re happy to sleep on ourselves.
If you want a job done right, we believe it really is best to do it yourself. That’s why in 2009 we settled into a new home at the Harrison Spinks farm, a 300-acre farm just 18 miles from our Leeds factory that gave us the freedom to do more things the way we wanted to.
Why do we use natural products?
When it comes to crafting a great night’s sleep, natural is best for wicking away moisture and regulating body temperature. Having our own farm allows us to produce natural fillings that are used in many of our mattresses and in ways that we know guarantee excellence and without the use of pesticides.
We rear hundreds of sheep on our rich untreated pastures. Soft, springy with temperature regulating properties, wool is also antibacterial and fire retardant.
We always get a few raised eyebrows when we talk about our hemp crops, but its resilience and durability make it the perfect natural fibre for our mattresses.
Our hemp crops produce super absorbent fibres, that help to absorb moisture from the mattress while you sleep, keeping you cool and dry.
Used to make linen, our home-grown flax is light, absorbent and a breathable, organic filling.
Nurturing the environment
Our farm isn’t for profit, which means we can make decisions that benefit the wildlife who share it with us. We work closely with the RSPB and Natural England to make sure the ecosystem on our farm doesn’t just survive it thrives.
What's more, the hemp that we grow on our farm is the perfect environment for increasing the ever-decreasing bee population as bees thrive on the nectar from the hemp plants.
Bring weaving back to Yorkshire
Tick or Ticking is the fabric used to cover the outside of the mattress. In line with our ethos to be world leaders in sustainable comfort innovation, we weave our own chemical free mattress fabric in-house. We combine traditional methods with state-of-the-art weaving looms, to create a breathable and FR chemical free sleeping surface.
1.3 million sqm of FR chemical treatment free tick is woven in our factory. Removing the need for 500kg of FR chemicals per year.
The key to fantastic springs is not only the raw material; which we source the majority of from British Steel in Scunthorpe UK, but it is in the innovation.
