Wet mattresses can be a challenge during a child’s early years, just like dust and allergies. That’s why we developed this mattress with a washable cover and a core that you can rinse off and air dry.

Article Number903.210.06

Product details

The cover is easy to remove and is machine washable at 60°C.

You can easily rinse off the mattress core with lukewarm water.

The advantage with the open structure in the core of the mattress is that air can circulate while the material has an elasticity which provides nice comfort.

Your child will sleep safe and sound on this mattress since both material and functionality have gone through tough safety tests.

  • For safety reasons, it is important that there are no gaps between the mattress and the edges of the cot.The zipper is child-safe since we took away the tab on the zip. To open and close, insert a paper clip through the loop. Make sure you always remove the paper clip afterwards.Complies with EN 16890:2017+A1:2021, a requirement specified by the European Committee for Standardisation, Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN).
  • All IKEA mattresses, including sofa bed mattresses, are free from chemical flame retardants unless required by national legislation. We strive to use materials with fire resisting properties such as fibre barriers.

    We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Starting the day by taking care of a wet cot is inevitable during a child's first years, and something which most parents can relate to. But how could cleaning be made easier after an accident during the night? It's something which Anna Carme at Children's IKEA thought about when she and her colleagues were given the task to develop new children's mattresses. The work resulted in two washable mattresses – HIMLAVALV, suitable for babies, and HIMLARUND, suitable for older children who have an extendable. Both models have removable textile covers which are machine-washable, while you simply wash off the mattress core in the shower and air dry it before it's time to make the bed for the night.

Like spaghetti

Anna and her team found the material for the mattresses at a supplier who has worked with various types of fibres for mattresses since the 1930s. In recent years, they've developed a technique where they copy the best properties of natural materials, but manufacture using LDPE (low density polyethylene), a plastic used for things like food packaging. Anna describes the somewhat odd manufacturing process: "The material is melted down and then pressed through something that looks like a large colander", says Anna. "The warm, spaghetti-like threads which come out end up in a vat of water where they quickly cool and solidify to form large sheets which are then cut to size." The advantage with the open structure in the core of the mattress is that air can circulate between the "spaghetti threads" while the material has an elasticity which provides nice comfort.

A snug sleeping environment

The airy cores of HIMLAVALV and HIMLARUND provide good ventilation so that your child's temperature doesn't vary too much, which is important for a safe and comfortable sleeping environment. And as always when it comes to products from Children's IKEA, the mattresses have undergone tough testing and follow some of the world's highest safety requirements, says Anna. "For cot mattresses we test things like the firmness to ensure that the child's head doesn't sink too far down into the mattress." The project with the new mattresses has meant a lot of development work, both for the supplier and for Children's IKEA. An important goal was for all parts to be separable so that both the core of the mattress and the textile cover can be recycled in the future when the mattress is eventually thrown away. "Innovative work is often complicated," says Anna. "But also extremely exciting and necessary so that we can meet the challenges of everyday life."

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.

What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
