Component Description – Cotton Fiber
Cotton fiber is used in our mattresses to add comfort by taking the body shape and absorb the humidity. A fresher sleeping surface will result in less movements and a better sleep.
The white cotton comes from the cotton flower that undergoes mechanical modifications. The jagged flowers are getting rid of their shell by passing through different vibration stages. Once the cotton is clean, a small percentage of polyester fibers are added to it following the futon flammability requirements in Canada. This cotton is naturally white and not chemically treated. The compound is distributed in layers of different sizes. We only use cotton in layers in the making of our futons. The cotton in layers is more resistant to compression and it allows to avoid any movement of the material inside the mattress.
Component Description – Eucalyptus Fiber
Eucalyptus fiber is used as the first layer under the mattress envelope. Already used in some textile products, this fibre has extraordinary temperature-regulating properties and we are proud to be among the firsts to use it in the materials that make up our mattresses.
- Soft and comfortable, it is ideal when combined with latex or a firm foam to achieve a balance between firmness and comfort.
- Regulates heat well, allowing the body to remain cool and dry.
- Naturally hypoallergenic and anti-dust mites

Eucalyptus fiber is a derived product of the eucalyptus tree pulp. The produced fiber is soft and perfectly convenient for mattress manufacturing because it is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-dust mites. Its great capacity to absorb humidity compared to its volume. Eucalyptus fiber has very high humidity absorption and breathing capacity which repels parasites like dust-mites who tend to infest humid environments. Also, its very fast drying ability considerably reduces the propagation of bacteria and moist, adding to the life span of the mattress, countering the development of bad smell in long-term.
Added to all these positive effects on our sleep, growing the eucalyptus plant is very easy, making it an eco-friendly material. The plants do not require any pesticides to survive and the tree reaches maturity very fast. Even better, eucalyptus forests almost need no water spraying to grow. Studies show that eucalyptus only needs 155 gallons of water/pound of produced fibre and half an acre of territory can produce about a ton of fibre. In comparison, organic Californian cotton drains 782 gallons of water/pound and needs 3.5 acres to get the same amount of produced fibre. Eucalyptus can also be planted on low quality lands without altering the fibre, giving access to good arable land necessary to grow high quality food.
The fiber goes through different steps for its manufacturing. The tree is first cut to wood chip and mixed with amine oxides, an organic, biodegradable and non-toxic solvent. The fiber is slowly dissolved, cellulose is extracted and its agglomeration forms the fabric. Then multiple cleaning and drying cycles finally allows creating a final product clean and soft to maximize quality and comfort.
99% of the solvent and water used in the process are recycled and used again, the loss being minimal is ideal for an eco-friendly product. Finally, the tree automatically reproduces its own new sprouts, considerably reducing the energy loss and carbon emanations form heavy machinery normally used by industries to replant trees.
Eucalyptus layers must be compressed and held by small tufts on the surface of the mattress. These tufts are made of a cotton string with a plastic end visible on the mattress, for a more handcrafted style.
