Safe and beautiful nursery decor starts with a great baby mattress
Looking for a stylish and colourful baby nursery?

Did you know that the ink and colours used in convention bedding products are often far from natural? Even the white! 🤔
All our natural and dyed fabrics used to make Milari Green Mattress are GOTS certified. Most of the dyes used to make Milari Organics products for colouring are biodegradable, low impact, and environmentally friendly dyes. This means they are safer than those used in conventional textiles, and they reduce the environmental impact of textile manufacturing. Environmentally friendly dyes do not contain heavy metal and are not considered harmful to humans.
How is the white achieved in a fabric that is safer for your little human?
Safe mattress means that the organic cotton is lightened by bleaching the natural fabric with a Oxy, (Hydrogen Peroxide) then washed and rinsed.
Why would you want to avoid synthetic dyes?
NO AZO dyes- synthetic dyes used in a variety of consumer goods. According to Product Safety Australia, a small proportion of azo dyes contain aromatic amines and some of those aromatic amines are suspected carcinogens.
NO Dye Setters- dye setter contains a very nasty chemical that’s commonly used in conventional textiles. It must be used with synthetic fibres, otherwise the dye will run.
No Phenol- often used as an antiseptic, a general disinfectant.
NO Formaldehyde - Formaldehyde is a toxic chemical and it’s presence can cause problems for many people, especially babies and young children. In people with known sensitivity some reported sites effects are dermatitis (skin rash or skin irritation) and runny nose or headache when they come in contact with products which contain formaldehyde.
NO harmful chemicals are used in any of our fabric colouring processes and our organic baby mattresses are formaldehyde free.
GOTS certified mattress is the first step to safer sleep. GOTS Certification also required that processing units do not pollute the environment and that they produce “ZERO Waste water wastage.
So when deciding on how to decorate your baby’s nursery, start with bedding and the most important purchase, which is safe baby mattress. After all, your babies will spend up to 17 hours a day sleeping and what they sleep on matters.
