Latex is a natural product derived from trees. Rubber trees grow approximately 10 degrees north and south of the equator, and small farmers collect their sap to make latex foam.
We carry two types of latex: Dunlop and Talalay. The latex that we use also comes in Soft, Medium and Firm densities. Customers can mix and match the layers of latex for the perfect, customizable feel.
Dunlop is comfortable, durable and supportive. Our Dunlop latex supplier's rubber tree farms are certified organic to U.S. standards. Also, our Dunlop meets the Global Organic Latex standard (GOLS). We often compare Dunlop to pound cake since it has an overall firmer feel while Talalay is more like angel food cake. Talalay is Cradle to Cradle certified and has a pillowy, luxurious feel. We especially recommend side sleepers choose a top layer of Talalay to help relieve pressure points.
