OMI: Organic Mattresses Made in the USA's Toughest Regulatory State
It would be hard to find a state in the U.S. whose consumers are more particular about organic & sustainable products than in California. Mattresses and bedding are an especially sensitive topic because the state has for years been caught up in regulatory battles surrounding chemical flame retardant requirements. Public safety arguments weighing the pros and cons of the additives have resulted in the most recent legislation banning the use of most of these chemicals in mattresses made or sold in California.
Legislation aside, any out-of-state manufacturer will agree that California compliance is its own specialty. And don’t even get them started on sustainability requirements!
Organic Mattresses, Inc. is not only America’s leading manufacturer of certified organic mattresses & bedding, but is also a full-circle environmental company that hand-crafts all of its products in their own Eco Factory™ in Northern California.
If You Can Make it There…
Or, as OMI puts it, they make their bedding “ …in one of the most environmentally conscious regions, of one of the most environmentally conscious States in the US.”
And let’s face it: When it comes to responsible, organic, and sustainable manufacturing, If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere!
If you source mattresses and bedding for residential clients, they are likely to be in a demographic that has a strong affinity for health and wellness-inspired products and brands, and a high preference for organic over conventional.
While price is always a tricky conversation when it comes to foundational items (that are felt rather than seen) people will rarely compromise on something as critical to daily wellness as the mattress they and their children sleep on.
Of course, materials are only half of the story; your clients have to experience unparalleled comfort as well, and that requires choices to be made based on sleep preferences and other personal factors.

And to be sure the bedding on top maintains the same purity, OMI’s organic cotton and wool collection includes pillows, sheets, blankets, comforters, and mattress toppers.
Most designers can vouch that a common client complaint with new furnishings is a “factory” smell, even with chemical-free products. Because Omi’s Eco-Factory™ is smoke and fragrance-free, and employs compressed-air filtration and ozone-sanitization, even your most chemically sensitive customers aren’t likely to call you to complain. (At least not about OMI mattresses and bedding!)
