A sustainable future

Not satisfied with making the best mattresses you can buy, we wanted to make sure that your Spink & Edgar can be returned to us at the end of it’s life and fully recycled too. Here’s some of the ingredients that help make this happen:

Having examined and refined everything that we put inside your mattress we then focused on what makes up the fabric of the mattress cover. The mattress fabric – known in the industry as ‘tick’ – is spun from a new eco fibre called ‘Tencel’.

A greener mattress fabric

Tencel is an advanced, luxurious, super soft viscose that helps regulate sleeping temperature as it is many times softer and more absorbent than cotton; it is also inherently anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. The fast growing evergreen eucalyptus tree from sustainable forestry plantations provide the raw material for Tencel. Manufactured in a unique closed loop production process using a non-toxic, harmless solvent, Tencel is a green, eco fibre of the future.

Empire Label

The Spink & Edgar range was the first in the world to contain PLA fibre, which is used in our mattresses to pocket the HD spring. PLA meets the same strict quality and performance criteria as was used previously, but has huge environmental benefits when compared against oil based products. It is produced in a sustainable way and is 100% based on annually renewable raw material (such as corn starch or sugar cane).

Calico Pocket Springs

The Revolution® spring is pocketed in breathable, natural calico and even the mattress label is 100% natural. Moving from the ubiquitous synthetic label is a tiny change, but another small step toward achieving our vision of a greener, more sustainable future.
