Christmas Break 2021

November 25, 2021 - 10:11am

So, it's coming up to the end of the year again and we're putting together our manufacturing schedule for the time between now and when we close for a Christmas - New Year break. We make every mattress and futon to order and our workshop will only have a finite number of 'making' slots, so if you're thinking of ordering for delivery before Christmas let us know as soon as you can. We're pretty busy right now (which is great!), and although we will always try to fit in last minute orders as our closing approaches and our workshop is whirring with sewing machines and piled high with felted wool, cotton, tree-sap latex and coconut fibre our manufacturing will usually be full a couple of weeks before we close!

We Are Open!

January 20, 2021 - 12:05pm

Hello! Just in case you were wondering, our workshop is open and we are here making our mattresses, futons, cushions (and all sorts of other things) pretty much as normal. We have our own self contained workshop and as a small team we can work safely and hygienically. We are well stocked up with our raw materials - organic cotton, organic UK wool, organic latex and coconut fibre - and our lead times for mattresses and futons are generally running around our regular 10 days, although we can sometimes fit things in more quickly. During this time though, our 'shop' is closed and so it isn't possible to visit us to try out mattresses and futons, but we can send out samples, chat through options on the phone and advise by email. After more than 30 years of doing what we do we are pretty experienced at recommending the best choices for each individual situation.

It's been wonderful to have had so much support from our lovely customers, both new and old (many of whom we have known for decades!), over the last year. We are really grateful to have been able to continue to remain open all through the last year and look forward to a better year ahead for everyone.

Christmas and New Year Shut Down 2019

December 22, 2019 - 8:52pm

Annual Shut-Down 2019

March 28, 2019 - 11:36am

Our shop and workshop will be closed for our annual shutdown from 26th April to 22nd May 2019.

As we only make mattresses and futons to order, if you do want a delivery before we close then let us know in enough time to get your order made up and despatched, our lead time at the moment is about 10 days. During our shutdown the workshop will be completely closed and so there will be no manufacturing or sending out parcels.

We are heading south and will be camping in France and Spain, but we will be in email contact as much as we can, so you can still ask questions and place provisional orders. It can get quite busy for the first few weeks after we re-open, but we will do our absolute best to accommodate urgent delivery dates!

We will be closed for a couple of days over Easter - Thursday 13th April, as well as the regular Good Friday 14th April and Easter Monday 17th April. We will also be closed for a week in May but haven't finalised dates yet. We will be posting details as soon as we have them!

Annual Shut-Down 2016

April 11, 2016 - 11:42am

Our shop and workshop will be closed, as usual, for our annual shutdown for a month from 26th April to 26th May. Our last official day for despatch before we close will be Friday 22nd of April although there may be the possibility to despatch any last minute mattresses or futons (but not smaller parcels) on Monday 25th April.

As we only make mattresses and futons to order, if you do want a delivery before the end of May then let us know as soon as possible so that there is enough time to get your order made up and despatched in the next two weeks. During our shutdown the workshop will be completely closed and so there will be no manufacturing or sending out parcels.

We are heading south and will be camping in France, Spain and Portugal during this time, but we will be in email contact as much as sensibly (!) possible, so you can still ask questions and place provisional orders. It can get quite busy for the first few weeks after we open, and we already have orders booked in for when we return, but we will do our absolute best to accommodate urgent delivery dates!

Christmas Ordering and Closing

December 6, 2015 - 9:17pm

We are planning that our last day for despatch will be Friday 18th December, for delivery the following Monday the 21st. So please let us know as soon as possible if you want to order a mattress or futon for delivery before Christmas, we are fast running out of manufacturing slots! We will try to fit a few extra slots in the week of the 21st if we possibly can, but

We will be re-opening fully on Tuesday 12th January. We are spending the week before, from Tuesday 5th January, re-organising our workshop, so it is possible to contact us then but we won't be manufacturing anything.

Our prices will be going up at the start of the new year. We have absorbed a lot of material (fabric, wool, latex and coir) and transport price rises over the last 18 months and although we really do try to keep our own prices as low as we can we have been forced to revise our costs. It is possible to order with a 20% deposit before Christmas, at the current prices, for making and delivery in the new year.

Closed For A Week In November

October 27, 2015 - 9:53pm

We are going to be closed for a week - from the 9th until the 14th of November. We are off to Switzerland to take part in a seminar with Mark Rashid on Aikido and Horsemanship - our two passions, apart from Dojo EcoShop, of course! We are making sure all manufacturing is up to date and so generally it shouldn't really affect lead times, but if you know that you need a mattress or futon before 9th November, or soon after the 14th, then let us know as soon as possible. We will still be checking emails while we are away so you can still get in touch with us.
