" Moonless night...
a powerful wind embraces
the ancient cedars. "
~ Matsu Basho
Eco-friendly mattresses are a hot topic these days and are featured everywhere from Oprah's website to Consumer Reports. Oprah recommends GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified cotton to her readers, which is a philosophy that we at Haiku Designs are behind 100%.
The article on her website warns readers to be aware of the “chemical smell” that often accompanies older and cheaper mattresses but can be a warning sign of any mattress that is manufactured without due care to incorporate responsible, environmentally conscious processing methodologies.
choosing your ideal mattress
Consumer Reports instructs their readers to look for trademarks of quality that indicate correct testing for emissions standards, most notably Greenguard certification, which is one of the hallmarks of safe furnishings; every Copeland product offered by Haiku Designs adheres to these rigorous standards.
When choosing a mattress, most people put a lot of thought and consideration into the size and firmness of the bed that will be most comfortable for them. Getting a healthy night's sleep is one of the best things you can do for your body. However, it is also vitally important to be sure the mattress or futon you choose has been produced in an environmentally conscious manner, and that the materials used have been responsibly sourced. One of the major issues with many mainstream, mass-produced mattresses and other types of bedroom furniture is the amount of noxious gasses that are released into the air as you sleep.
We at Haiku Designs are not big fans of noxious gasses. In fact, we go out of our way to ensure that only the healthiest products on the market today are available for our customers to purchase. Our mattresses and futons are all low-emissions and are crafted from natural and renewable materials. All of our mattresses and futons offer little to no off gassing, ensuring that the air in your room at night is healthy and clean.
Natural and sustainable materials matter
Haiku Designs feature several lines of eco-friendly furniture made from FSC certified, sustainable wood and bamboo. Our mattresses adhere to the strictest of quality standards. We offer the best eco-friendly mattresses money can buy, along with an entire line of high quality, all natural bedding and bed accessories to ensure that you sleep well and breathe healthy air.

Haiku Designs also carries lines of Organic Sheets and Pillowcases, made of silk, organic cotton, and all-natural fibers. Our Organic and Natural Pillows are made of cotton, wool, latex, and other all-natural fibers, as well.
Once you've chosen the perfect eco-friendly mattress for your new bed, protect it with one of our fabulous Organic Mattress Pads and Protectors.
