CATA Has New Organic Bedding Affiliate: Mountain Air Organic Beds

Mountain Air Organic Beds 
offers organic and natural fibre bedding 
that's high quality, stylish and affordable.   


CATA is pleased to announce a new affiliate offering organic bedding.  Mountain Air Organic Beds is located in Springdale, AR and owned by Joyce Robertson.  Below are some facts and data you should know about organic bedding.

What Is A Organic Mattress?
Our organic mattresses are made entirely by mother nature.  Organic is a term that can be loosely thrown around, this is why we go to great lengths to provide organic certificates and make all our products the purest way possible. 

Our ingredient list...
100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton for our fabric 
100%  Wool for our batting
100% All Natural and Organic Latex Rubber for our mattress core
That's it!  

Mountain Air Organic Beds mattresses are unique.  They have a zipper casing to make it completely transparent.  Nothing hidden in your mattress.  No toxic chemicals, no cheap polyurethane foams, no chemical flame retardants.

Our mattresses are grown and tapped from mother nature, no trees are cut down, no pesticides are sprayed on the cotton, and sheep continue to make wool because we all need hair cuts right?   So... your mattress goes on to make more mattresses and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 

Mountain Air Organic Beds' mattresses aren't like traditional, solid-slab mattresses (which sometimes feel like a solid slab of rock, after all). Each Mountain Air Organic Beds mattress contains 3-4 layers of all-natural latex available in three levels of firmness - soft, medium and firm. Choose any combination for the custom level of comfort you need. Best of all, our split-level design gives you an individual sleep surface on each side, so you'll never have to argue about how firm of a bed to buy.

Some Examples of Organic Pillows

Organic Silk Pillows:
  • Silk stuffed in an organic cotton casing
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Protect your pillow with an organic cotton casing
  • Silk contains 18 essential amino acids good for skin and hair

Shredded Rubber Pillows:

  • No polyurethane, petroleum or chemical flame retardants

  • 100% organic cotton casing

  • Come into our store and fill it yourself to the desired height

  • Available in high, medium or low loft

  • 100% organic wool in a 100% organic cotton casing
