Bedding-Collection … on cloud nine
Sleeping in a comfortable and cosy bed, surrounded by purely natural fibres from certified organic sources, is probably the most ideal sleep environment imaginable.
Natural fibres are the clothes of nature, for example for animals or to buffer and protect seeds to prevent damage. Humans have found multiple applications for natural fibres and still continue to discover new ones.
For example it has recently been discovered that wool can filter air-pollutants and peat fibres protect from various kinds of radiation. Since 1996 Baumberger has produced its entire Bedding Collection from predominantly certified organic natural materials. There is no EU-directive for textiles as there is for organic food and produce the labelling “bio or eco” may also be used for conventional textile products.
This is one reason why at Baumberger the majority of our products have the internationally accredited GOTS certification, which is one of the few legitimate labels that guarantee a high quality product that uses textiles from certified organic sustainable sources and fair production conditions.
Only products that adhere to the strict GOTS guidelines and certification criteria can receive the GOTS Label and the unique product licence number. The Baumberger Bedding Collection is subject to thorough checks and quality regulations from the beginning of production, for example when sourcing filling materials such as pure new wool, cotton, linen, millet or spelt husk and cover materials such as cotton.
These always originate from certified organic farming sources. In order to comply with the GOTS directive, as a licensee we are required to perform all manufacturing under socially and environmentally sound and fair conditions, using only mechanical production processes and without any chemical procedures.
Other materials such as camelhair, horsehair or peat fibres, which are also ingredients of Baumberger Bedding, are currently not available from certified organic sources. However we consider them vital elements with highly beneficial properties, which is why we include them in our products. We are however very careful in the selection of our sources to warrant ethical and environmentally sound origins.
Baumberger materials also prove their ecological value in their durability and quality. For example, one of the most popular Baumberger Bedding cover materials is ‘fine percale’, which offers longevity and superior hygiene properties.
It is produced in a purely mechanical process and is refined into a fabric with a special microstructure. This method makes it fibre proof and even mite proof, still remaining highly breathable. This is how we at Baumberger guarantee that your bedding remains beautiful and fresh for a long time.
