Matresse Making

The matresses are made with cloth from the Black Mountain

The vertus of wool have been known for thousands of years.

- 100% naturel, no known allergies.

- Ideal thermic qualities : hot in winter, cool in summer.

- Endless recyclablilty which is excellent for the planet.
























The matresse is finished. It takes around 6 or 7 heures to make a matresse. To keep your matresse comfy you need to renew it every 8 or 10 years. The wool will be recycled, the cloth renewed and off it goes again for another 8 or 10 years.

Normally a 2 place wool matresse is 20kg of pure wool, this means around forty sheep (who knows? maybe counting sheep before sleeping comes from this) at 41 you fall asleep!

The thickness and comfort will be of your choice. Even non standard mesurements are possible. I can also make stunning seats, sofas and cushions.
