Slumber like a VIP



Big or small, everyone deserves very important treatment in their sleep writes Hilda ODHIAMBO stressing the need to usage of posture-care slumber products.

Why is sleeping more and more important? Research, findings uphold that people spend one-third of their lives asleep – in bed – or precisely on mattresses. That’s a chunk of life being devoted to sleep. The activity thus renders a reason to think comfort when it comes to slumber.

Quality sleep has a wider part to play in people’s health. Physically, sleep conserves and restores energy. During the night, every element of the body goes to repair. The heart-beat rate and body temperature decline, growth hormones are released and the immune system is restored.

Indeed for this reason, Manu Mediratta and his brother Jay Mediratta, both directors at Slumberland Kenya Limited stress that quality sleep doesn’t just surface. “One has to invest in quality sleep,” quips Manu. That miss-able sleep can only be found on well-designed, comfortable and durable mattresses.

The secret of a good night’s sleep lies at the heart of the mattress, in the fillings and most importantly, the spring system. We strive to ensure that at the end of each day, our tired and weary customers are assured of a rejuvenating, “good night’s sleep”, says Manu.

Insisting on everyone having a VIP-Sleep, the duo steers the company in manufacturing top-standard inner-spring beds and mattresses under the franchise license from Slumberland Plc in the United Kingdom.

From a humble beginnings in 1987, the company has stepped-out and up to nurture and lull its Eastern African region customers to sleep. Theirs has been more about provision of comfort that’s for a good night’s sleep.
