Our beds don’t start life in a factory but on the Harrison Spinks farm. In 2009 we settled into a new home at the Harrison Spinks farm in North Yorkshire. It’s a 300-acre farm just 18 miles from our Leeds factory allowing us the freedom to do more things the way we wanted to.
It is here that we tend fertile fields of hemp and flax crops. These 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 crops. 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 have partnered with British Wool to launch a new scheme that traces the origin of the wool used in our mattresses from farm to our factory. The scheme allows consumers to fully understand where the wool in the products they are purchasing is from, and gives them peace of mind that the farmer has received a fair price for their wool.
The raw fibres are blended into soft and sumptuous filling pads at our factory in Leeds. Both natural and sustainable fibres are used to create different combinations of filling pads.
We only use natural or sustainable fibres within our mattresses. Our polyester is from GRS (Global Recycle Standard) accredited suppliers. It is made from recycled fibres and can be easily recycled again at the end of life. We never blend natural fibres with polyester as this makes it very hard to recycle.
In 2021 we opened our own recycling centre to recycle any Harrison Spinks mattress with a Cortec™ spring system. In time we aim to recycle previously loved fibres from these mattresses ready to re-use.
