MERELY A MONARCH

Textiles

My love of textiles and interior decorating started many years ago. My grandma was a dressmaker and worked part time in a fabric store, while still working at the family trading stores in the Transkei. On every occasion I always received something homemade from blankets to jerseys, to Barbie outfits. I loved the fabrics and patterns and especially the love and passion that went into making these items. Life then took me on a journey back to grandmas’ home. My passion has always been to support the local textile market. I eventually started my own company, which specialises in mattress protectors and pillow protectors. My range caters to any budget, from economical to top end. Bamboo has been my most successful range, and I love the fact people are being so eco-friendly. The laminate itself is also environmentally safe, and biodegradable. Each of my items are carefully made with love and attention to detail. Behind each item, we support families, and behind each item we support South Africa.

ABOUT

The Factory

With over 40 years’ experience, they certainly know their game.

The factory knits yarn such as bamboo, cotton, and spun polyester, which they then laminate using a Ureamax TPU membrane. The membrane is waterproof, highly breathable, baby safe, dust mite repellent and non-toxic. The laminate itself is also environmentally safe, and biodegradable. They are the only company in South Africa which waterproof their fabrics without solvents, formaldehyde, or carcinogenic properties, which may be found in other waterproofing processes. This hydrophobic material allows moisture to be absorbed and wicked away from the body.

While there might be controversy surrounding the processing of bamboo yarn, they are proud to be one of the few companies who use a bamboo yarn, which is free from solvents and other harmful chemicals. Their yarn is produced mechanically; the bamboo is crushed, and the natural fibres are combed out and spun into yarn. The material itself is stronger and has far more longevity compared to other natural fibres. The finished product results in a softer texture that is beautiful, naturally antibacterial, and hypoallergenic. The knitted bamboo thread is powerfully insulating, which allows for a comfortable sleep in a warm climate.

In conclusion, the factory is an innovative company that values producing the best possible quality.
