For something as basic as a mattress, the Athena 260 Coil Organic Crib Mattress does nothing in a basic, boring way. The interior features 260 individual coils, each composed of pliable 15.5-gague coil wire. Side air vents help keep the mattress fresh, and the exterior cover is triple-laminated with 100 organic cotton layers. The cover is also anti-bacterial, non-toxic, and water and tear-resistant. One side of the mattress is softer, making it appropriate for toddlers, but the other side features a firmer surface for infants. This mattress fits toddler daybeds, and meets and exceeds all state and federal flammability standards.
AFG might not be the biggest company in the world, but for over two decades, they have been striving to be one of the best. While other crib designers focus on fashionable designs and aesthetic features, AFG dedicates the majority of its resources toward quality assurance, consumer safety, and customer satisfaction. AFG is an American-owned family business and supervises every single step of its manufacturing process, ensuring the best and most environmentally friendly overseas production facilities. AFG believes in social responsibility by making certain that all AFG baby products use sustainable wood and by being a major contributor to nonprofit action groups such as The Compassion & Relief Foundation and the Green World Campaign.
