Life-Enhancing, Life-Inspiring Sleep With Core Natural Sleep

Sleep like you have never slept before on a bed that inspires a sensual deep sleep. This is the simple promise made by Ireland’s only 100 per cent natural mattress-maker, Core Natural Sleep.

The newly launched Core Natural Sleep company is a tale of heart and craft. Galway native, Eric Brennan and his Dutch wife Sabien had a shared vision - to redefine the way we sleep by using nature’s most nurturing organic fibres, to restore balance and vitality while applying the traditional craft of mattress-making with the best orthopaedic know-how. The result: a luxurious bespoke mattress for lifelong beauty sleep.

Eric and Sabien have applied their years of international experience, sourcing materials from around the globe, to develop their unique organic sleeping experience. The Core Natural Sleep mattresses are made of organic cotton, pure new wool, coco-fibre and horsehair, ingredients selected because they regulate temperature and moisture, ensuring a dry, clean and healthy sleeping environment.

The sleep-promoting natural materials are recommended suitable to those suffering with asthma, allergies and skin conditions.

The secret of comfort lies in support. Core Natural Latex perfectly moulds the body shape regardless of your sleeping position and has been orthopedically designed to have posture zones catering for optimal posture and lumbar support.

The Core Natural Sleep workshop and showroom can be found in Galway’s Briarhill Business Park where customers can bed-hop like Goldilocks among the Core Mattress ranges to find their dream bed. Each mattress is handmade and therefore bespoke sizes or shapes are possible for cots, camper vans, yachts or whatever you require.

Prices start from €1,000 and expert help and advice is on hand to guide you through every step of this very important purchase. Visit www.corehomestore.ie for more details.
