The mattress on the bed is new. The bed consists of a headboard, a footboard which are held together by a metal down each side the a bed divan base was put on top of this (it's this part I am worried about) and the you put a mattress on top of that. I think it would cost to much to replace that part.

The fabric that is covering the base looks like silk but I have read that asbestos was mixed with other materials and the fabric was usually good or silver and the base is gold with silver flowers pattern

Thank you for your reply Paul and Mojo. It has helped me a lot. I have been so worried and upset. I have had the bed for 20 years and I managed to convince myself that it had asbestos in the bed and I had put my family in danger but that is anxiety for you.

The bed is now heading to the bin which is sad as it was a lovely bed.

Thanks again for your help and replies.

Has anyone ever heard of asbestos being woven into fabric for furniture?

Thanks for your reply. I know it was used in matteresses and sofas but wasn't sure if it was used in bed divan bases. Would there be stuffing in beside the springs as it's empty now.

Sorry for all the stupid questions but been really worried about my children breathing something harmful in.

I hope you don't mind me posting here but I can not find any answers anywhere else.

Inherited a old bed at a guess it is from the 1920's to 1940's. It gave developed a hole and the stuffing is coming out. I am worried that the divan bed base was full of nasty stuff like asbestos (Sorry but I have health anxiety and I am really worried). What I can see is the top fabric, black felt, Hessian, springs and the Hessian bottom.

Do you think this would have anything dangerous in it? I know you can't give me a definite answer.

Thanks in advance for any information
