Edblo partnership to assist victims of Gender-Based Violence

Edblo has been South Africa’s most-loved bed range for many generations. This success is not only due to the superb quality and durability of our beds, but also thanks to Edblo’s unique understanding of what it means to be South African.

As a Proudly South African brand, it must be acknowledged that our country is struggling with the scourge that is Gender-Based Violence (GBV).

While we are celebrating Mother’s Day this month, it is unfortunately true that many of our proud, strong and beautiful South African mothers face the harsh reality of physical and psychological abuse every day.

As strong as these women are, they also need some additional support and effective and efficient service from the South African Police Service and criminal justice system.

Edblo has partnered with People Opposing Women Abuse (POWA) and donated 12 Edblo Classic Support top single mattresses to POWA shelters. We believe that a trusted night’s sleep will help give them the strength to overcome their challenges.

POWA has worked tirelessly for 43 years to make this world a better and safer place for abused women by providing them with shelter, counselling, skills development opportunities and legal services.

The 12-bed donation will see victims of GBV (both mothers and their children) finally receive a good night’s rest in a safe and comfortable environment.

This also aligns with Edblo and POWA’s hope for a safe and equal society, intolerant of all forms of violence against women and girls in our wonderful South African diversity, where they are treated with respect and dignity and their rights are promoted.

Just as the staff at POWA are changing the lives of GBV survivors one woman at a time, Edblo also wants to remind their loyal client-base that they too can play an important part in supporting this cause.

By visiting https://www.powa.co.za/POWA/get-involved/donate-now/ you can make a donation and assist our South African mothers and children who have been victims of GBV.

Please stand with Edblo and help give our mothers back their POWA!

Finding the right bed for your body and sleep habits

After more than 90 years in the local bedding industry, Edblo has been supplying South African families with the best quality mattresses for generations.

It goes without saying that Edblo knows the secret to finding the best mattress to fit your individual needs!

While there are various aspects and features to consider when purchasing a new bed, choosing the correct firmness of mattress is by far the most important.

It has been scientifically proven that the human body needs some resistance to the surface it sleeps on. A firmer mattress will ensure the skeleton supports the body, allowing your muscles to relax and improving circulation.

Moreover, when you sleep your brain will allow for automatic adjustments to counter any misalignment of the body. If you choose to sleep on the wrong mattress, it may cause your body to have to adapt too much throughout the night, leaving you exhausted, stiff and achy the next morning.

Considering your favourite sleeping position can go a long way in determining what firmness of mattress you require.

If you prefer sleeping on your back, you will most likely require a mattress that offers firmness and support. A mattress that is too soft will allow your body to sink in and cause back pain. On a scale of 1-10, the perfect range of firmness for your mattress would be 5-7.

Side-sleepers often endure discomfort and pain in their hip joints and shoulders.

Mattresses that are a bit softer than those ideal for back-sleeper are advised, as these provide for equal distribution of pressure on the body while asleep.

Side-sleepers should choose a mattress firmness range of around 3-6.

The most important thing for stomach-sleepers is to provide an equal distribution of weight across the entire body as your torso will apply the most pressure into the mattress. If the mattress is too soft, your spine will curve causing back pain.

Stomach-sleepers will want to look for mattress firmness in the 5-7 range.

Your weight also plays a role in deciding the firmness of your mattress. Heavier people will experience more pressure points on their back, and ideally you want to choose a firmer mattress option to adjust for sinkage.

At Edblo, with you through life, we have plenty of mattress options to suit everybody’s individual needs. Visit one of our preferred retailers in store or online today!

Sleep well for better academic performance

Send your kids to bed so they can earn A’s at school.

Sound ridiculous?

Well science proves otherwise!

Recent studies have shown that students who get a full eight hours of sleep per night pay better attention in class, remember what they have learnt and are more creative and better at problem solving, thereby performing better academically than students who do not sleep well.

Any parent knows that a tired child is a grumpy child. 

When children are tired and sleepy during the day, they can struggle to concentrate, experience learning difficulties and display behavioural problems relating to mood and general conduct.

Sending our kids off to school when they are mentally exhausted due to lack of sleep is putting them at an unfair disadvantage amongst their well-rested peers.

Having provided quality beds for South African families since 1927, Edblo knows how important our children and their futures are to our clients. Therefore we want to assist our loyal customers in establishing a proper bedtime routine for their budding young Einsteins.

  1. Send them to bed at a decent hour, but also not too early. Studies show kids who are sent to bed too early tend to get distracted, goof off, get hyper and take longer to fall asleep.
  2. Limit their screen-time before bed. The blue light emitted from screens can delay the release of sleep-inducing melatonin, increase alertness and reset the body's internal clock to a later schedule, preventing proper sleep.
  3. Introduce a healthy and consistent bedtime routine. This could include a pre-bedtime bath or shower and a good book. We all have a biological clock and our circadian rhythms can help us sleep if we honor them by following a consistent schedule of when we go to bed and when we wake up.
  4. Invest in a quality mattress that will prevent your child rolling around in bed all night struggling to fall asleep.

An Edblo bed’s combination of scientifically advanced support system and superb comfort will ensure your child gets a great night's rest, and our comprehensive collection of beds will ensure you find a bed suitable for your child's specific requirements.

Buy an Edblo mattress, send the kids to bed and allow them to shine as the high-achievers they are.

Giving a family a trusted night of sleep

Edblo is by far the most loved South African bed manufacturer and has been loved by local families since 1927. Edblo’s mission is to provide the best possible sleep to help South African families all around the country, to help them overcome the challenges life brings, and to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.

When you think about love, support and togetherness what do you think about? At Edblo, we instantly think about the definition and essence of family. Family means supporting one another, loving one another, and conquering all challenges in life together. Family means that when things get tough, you lean on one another more than you did when things were going well.

This festive season, Edblo has decided to run the “Nominate A Family” competition in December 2021, the winning family will be announced in January 2022. For generations, our customers have laughed, loved, cried, played, cared, and shared in the cosy comfort of an Edblo bed. And, best of all, they’ve slept well. This is your opportunity to gift this chance of good night’s sleep to a family in need.

The drive behind this initiative is to give back to a South African family who need it most this festive season, and to those who have been through unimaginable hardships. Afterall, we believe that all families deserve to have a trusted night’s sleep in an Edblo bed.

We’re asking you to get involved by sharing the competition with your friends and spreading the joy. Nominate a family who hasn't had the best night of sleep this past year and tell us their inspirational story by following this link: https://edblo.co.za/nominate-a-family/ . The family nominated will standa chance to win an Edblo surprise that could guarantee them rest and support for 2022.

Afterall, it is the time of year to spread the joy of trusted sleep, and to remember that Edblo is always with you through life.

Online Bed Shopping made easy!

Edblo is with you through life, however, your favourite mattress will eventually become old and worn-out.

Once your mattress has reached its expiration date, you need to replace it as soon as possible to reduce risks to your spinal health and your ability to get a decent night’s rest.

Thankfully, shopping online for mattresses has never been easier.

But with so many beds for sale in South Africa, how do you know which is the best mattress to suit your individual needs and stage in life?

Edblo with you through life, South Africa’s most loved home-made bed brand, has got some tips to share on what to look out for when shopping for a bed online:

  1. Firstly, don’t rush. By doing your research, visiting a variety of websites, and investigating the different options and their merits, will allow you to choose the right product for you.

  2. Decide on the firmness of your mattress by looking at your favourite sleeping position.

In general, people who sleep on their side need a softer mattress, people who sleep on their stomach need a firm one, and back sleepers fall somewhere in between.

  1. Size-wise, if you feel restricted by a narrow bed you may want to upsize to a more spacious double bed. A queen size may be more comfortable for those who like extra space. King size mattresses are made for partners and offer plenty of room for couples.

  2. Read plenty of online reviews from unbiased customers who have purchased the mattress you are interested in. Don’t be shy to ask for recommendations on social media.

  3. Buy a well-known brand bed from a reputable stockist.
    There are reasons why some brands are more popular than others. Buying the best quality mattress according to your budget from a trusted and established brand selling quality products will guarantee a great mattress investment.

Using these tips from Edblo prior to purchasing a bed online will ensure a good night’s sleep for years to come.

As a committed supporter of South Africans since 1927, Edblo has a particular soft spot for families dealing with childhood cancer.

With Rainbows and Smiles in the front lines of this battle, Edblo hopes to bring some relief from the sidelines, with our donation of eight Edblo beds to this amazing community based charitable foundation.

Rainbows and Smiles is dedicated to providing emotional, social and financial support to children diagnosed with cancer or a life-threatening illness, and their families and caregivers. Edblo has always worked to provide the best possible sleep to help people rise to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

With the donation of eight single beds to the Rainbows and Smiles facility, we believe this to be a small step on the road to helping a child and their family to be more comfortable during their fight against cancer.

The latest statistics tell us that on average 800 to 1 000 children are newly diagnosed with childhood cancer annually in South Africa.  Experts estimate that around two-thirds of childhood cancers in our country remain unreported, which means that closer to 3000 children every year actually get cancer, so educating the general population is imperative.

As a brand well loved by South Africans, we join Rainbows and Smiles in their passionate advocacy for awareness and ongoing education on the early warning signs of childhood cancer. Rest easy and get the strength you need from a trusted night’s sleep.
