After 15 years of working in the mattress industry, Rhiannon Rowley’s concern about the chemicals in the fabrics and materials used to create mattresses, led to the development of Abaca. Rhiannon (pictured right) learnt her trade with Alphabeds, a company based in West Wales who manufactured pine and beech beds as well as a range of mattresses. The manufacturing facility for Alphabeds was based at Dolbantau Mill, Llanfihangel-ar-Arth, Carmarthenshire, while the Alphabeds shop was on Tottenham Court Road, London.
Abaca was a response to conversations between Rhiannon and Alphabeds customers. It was clear that there was a demand for a product made with organic materials which addressed both lifestyle and health issues. The company produces organic mattresses using the purest organic Welsh wool and organic fabrics.
Unlike other mattresses which use synthetic fabrics, Abaca mattresses are made of natural materials without the need for chemicals. No pesticides or herbicides are used in the production of any of the materials used. Each organic mattress is carefully hand stitched and finished.
