Brentwood Home Crafts Eco-Friendly Matresses and Yoga Pillows with an Artisan Touch
Handcrafted. Eco-friendly. Non-toxic. These are just a few of the tenets with which Brentwood Home approaches their collection of mattresses, bedding, pet beds, and yoga pillows that play an important role in keeping you, your home and the planet as healthy as possible. Designed and crafted by makers in Los Angeles using a combination of non-toxic, natural and organic materials, each product promotes healthy sleep and lifestyles that live up to Brentwood Home’s’s comprehensive environmental ethos. They have a host of trusted certifications to ensure their sustainability, and they’ve partnered with Carbonfund.org to reduce and offset the carbon footprint of their factory and shipping process. And, in response to the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles, they support Relief Bed’s mission to provide beds to the homeless, to shelter residents, and victims of natural disasters. Their direct-to-consumer model means affordable pricing, but their thoughtful approach to manufacturing, 30-year history of artisanal craftsmanship (think hand-tufted wool rosettes and quilted Euro-tops), and commitment to health, wellness and the environment are priceless.
For A Non-Toxic Night’s Sleep
We spend about one-third of our lives in dreamland. And during that time, we’re shedding skin, sweating throughout the night, and breathing in the materials of our mattress. So while comfort should be at top of mind when shopping for one, so should its composition. Luckily, Brentwood Home has you covered. With their range of eco-friendly, non-toxic mattresses—New Hybrid Latex, Cedar Natural Luxe, Cypress Memory Foam, Crystal Cove, and Oceano Luxury Hybrid—you’ll get some shut-eye that you can feel good about. So good, that Brentwood Home offers a 1-year sleep guarantee and 25-year warranty on each mattress.
Why We Love Them:
Here’s what you’ll find in your Brentwood Home mattress: kapok for smooth, fluffy softness; antimicrobial, GOTS Organic Certified wool that wicks away moisture to keep you cool; quality support through all-natural buckwheat, GOLS organic certified latex, and heat-treated coils; and organic cotton for cozy sheets and mattress covers. But what you won’t find are toxic materials like VOCs, flame retardants, heavy metals, formaldehyde and phthalates (yeah…those things are usually in bed with you). That’s because most of Brentwood Home’s mattresses go through rigorous testing for more than 300 harmful chemicals and pollutants, earning them a Greenguard Gold certification by UL Environment. And another reason to rest well: Brentwood Home makes a donation for every mattress sold to the National Forest Foundation, so three new trees will thank you.
Brentwood Home’s Hybrid Latex Mattress offers zoned support and ultra comfort. Its alternative, recycled, breathable materials include Repreve, a soft recycled polyester made from ocean-bound plastic bottles (up to 57 in each mattress) that cut down on greenhouse gas emissions.

ECO-FRIENDLY YOGA PILLOWS
For An Even Healthier Practice
Through breathwork, meditation, and strategic body poses, the practice of yoga improves our physical and mental health—strengthening our muscles, increasing flexibility, releasing tension, and clearing our minds. So when choosing your yoga accessories, it’s best to reach for products that have benefits for your health and wellness too. Brentwood Home’s yoga pillows will give you just that. The Crystal Cove Yoga Collection includes the Oval Meditation Yoga Pillow, Square Meditation Cushion, Buckwheat Yoga Bolster Pillow, and the Pranayama Pillow—all created to help you relax, stretch and breathe your way to a healthier you.
Why We Love Them:
Brentwood Home’s Crystal Cove Collection is 100% certified vegan by Vegan Action. So you can enhance the comfort of your meditation while knowing no animals were harmed in the making of your pillow.
Los Angeles yoga instructor Angela Kukhahn designed the Oval Meditation Yoga Pillow for Brentwood Home to add just the right amount of height and support to your meditation practice, aligning your spine and extending your comfortability. Our founder, Sheridan Foster, tried the pillow for herself and found it to be so comfortable that she even uses it when she’s sitting on her sofa watching television. Kukhahn looked to the surf and tide pools of Crystal Cove State Park in California when dreaming up the pillow’s wavy pattern.
