Sleep aids our physical and mental strength, supports our immune system and allows our bodies to reboot. If you’re cool and comfortable at night, you’ll sleep well – and the many benefits for body and mind will follow. With this in mind, you might be due a visit to Okooko by European Bedding store in Hong Kong, a regular award-winner in our Expat Living Readers’ Choice Awards. The one-stop store has widened its product range in recent years, so you can satisfy all your sleeping needs, from mattresses and pillows to duvets, sheets and more! Here’s some highlights.
Okooko’s signature range of Heveya mattresses are made from 100 percent certified natural organic latex, with no pesticides, fertilisers, heavy metals, VOCs or other chemicals used in the manufacturing process. They’re ultra-comfortable, too, offering seven zone body support for perfect spinal alignment. Various customisation options are available – for example, you can choose different firmness (firm, medium and soft) for each side of a King mattress. The bamboo cover has organic cotton padding and is removable and dry-cleanable.
The store has a range of Heveya pillows for finding the ideal support for your head and neck. Their 100 percent natural organic latex core means that they have excellent shape retention and are naturally anti-microbial, dust mite-resistant and hypoallergenic. The bamboo covers are removable and drycleanable too. Slatted Bed Bases The bed bases at Okooko feature highquality slats and frames made from FSCcertified beech wood. The slats can be adapted to different body positions and support needs, including adjusting the firmness with 12 sliders in the lumbar and hip areas.
Bamboo and Linen Sheets
Complement your mattress with luxuriously soft and breathable Heveya bamboo lyocell sheets – duvet sheets, fitted sheets, flat sheets, pillow cases and more; you can buy them in bundles, and in white, grey and blush pink. Or, opt for the timeless appeal and rustic aesthetic of 100 percent European flax linen, in white and natural shades.
The Heveya 100 percent organic cotton cover has bamboo lyocell padding and is a breathable, lightweight addition to a Hong Kong bed. It’s naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic, easily washable, and available in four sizes, from Super King to Single.
Along with the above, the store also offers a Junior range for young sleepyheads, with a range of organic baby cot mattresses, baby pillows, toddler pillows and more.
