Kapok Mattress The Handmade Bed
In this modern era, especially in a developed and developing country, spring bed or foam mattress is usually used in any houses. The using of spring bed or foam mattress is related to the comfortableness and sleeping quality desired by the user. Spring bed of foam mattress is more comfortable than kapok mattress, because the bedding materials are softer than kapok. Usually, spring bed or foam mattress uses foam and soft fabrics to cover the materials. While kapok mattress uses kapok fiber as the bedding material and it’s covered by a thick fabric in order to get a thick consistency of the bed.
The kapok mattress is still familiar in some developing countries, such as Indonesia and the other Asian countries as well. While spring bed and foam mattress are becoming more popular, the kapok mattress is also commonly used. This kind of handmade bed is usually made by some women. They fill the fabrics with kapok fibers, and then they stitch the fabrics in order to cover the kapok fiber, so when the bed is used the kapok fiber won’t come out from the fabric. They don’t just only make the bed, but usually they do the “service” things, such as adding the kapok fibers to the old bed, stitching the broken fabrics, or even remake the bed because of the bad condition of it.
The price of kapok mattress is much cheaper than spring bed or foam mattress, for example in Indonesia. You don’t have to pay more than US $50 for each kapok mattress you buy. You only pay $22 for 1×2 meter of kapok mattress, $27 for 1.25×2 meter size, or $33 for 1.5×2 meter size.
