Afroditi is completely metal-free and suitable for children and persons of lighter body weight. Thanks to its flexibility, Afroditi is also ideal for use on folding beds/reclining furniture. Afroditi has double covers with zippers that can be easily removed and washed for optimal hygiene. The zipper opening allows for easy maintenance and a longer lifespan. The quilted mattress cover is made of high-quality cotton and pure wool and is Oeko-Tex certified (standard 100). All double mattresses are made of two single units, joined together inside a washable cotton cover, ensuring uniformity.
Washing instructions for covers:
- Machine Wash, Gentle or Delicate (40°C / 105° F).
- Do Not Spin or Wring.
- Do Not Bleach.
- Tumble Dry on Low Heat.
- Dry clean.
Dry in a shady, well-ventilated area, preferably on a flat surface. It is also advisable, before completely drying, to stretch in order to reduce their chances of shrinking.
Why should I choose a mattress of natural materials and not of metal springs?
Mattresses without springs are comparatively superior to those with springs. Natural materials offer even, isometric body support and do not contain noise sources. On the contrary, springs give different support to their points of connection than in the middle of each separately. Also, despite the fact that they are dressed with cotton, it is possible to produce noise because they are made of steel.
In addition, natural materials last longer. Their resilience through time, not only because of their natural origin but also because of their characteristics (elasticity, reset), it is larger than the resilience of the springs which are artificial.
Finally, natural materials have bigger resilience in heavy and careless use and do not produce magnetic fields. Every kind of metal generates even a minor magnetic field.
