What does FR stand for?

FR is an acronym for Flame Retardant.   With the exception of our wool wrapped mattresses--such as the LOTUS and Dreamton, which are both naturally flame retardant--federal regulations require White Lotus Home to treat our mattresses with a flame retardant or to get a doctor's note from our customers.  We use a flame retardant called boric powder. Almost all of our mattresses are available in a FR-free style, either by wrapping them in wool or by sending White Lotus Home a doctor's note. If you have any questions about doctor's notes, boric powder, or our mattress options, please feel free to email sales@whitelotus.net or to call us at 732.828.2111.
