When searching for an organic mattress, one of the first things you should note are certifications.
What types of certification does the mattress have? Is it just for one particular material, such as cotton, or is the entire mattress certified? And are the company’s manufacturing facilities certified as well?
These questions add up fast but they’re vital when choosing a mattress that is safe for you and your family.
At Savvy Rest, we offer completely GOTS-certified organic mattresses. In fact, we’re the only mattress company in the world that offers GOTS-certified organic mattresses with Talalay latex. The Talalay latex in our mattresses is sourced from rubber tree plantations that adhere to sustainable forestry practices.

What is GOTS?
GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. This standard is in place to ensure that organic farmers are not using pesticides, organic cotton is not being mixed with synthetic materials, and facilities housing these materials meet the highest of standards.
GOTS is one of the most respected and prestigious certifications in not only the mattress industry but the organic textile industry in general.
It is a much more robust, detailed, and time-intensive process then certifications such as Certi-Pur which do not require strict organic practices.

GOTS-Certified Organic Mattresses
Our customizable latex mattresses are completely GOTS-certified.
There are several natural mattresses online that have the GOTS logo on their website but this logo may only pertain to the cotton and/or wool that they’re using. This does not mean that the entire mattress is certified.
Why does this matter?
A completely GOTS-certified organic product means that certifiers have evaluated every aspect of the mattress–the latex, the cotton, the wool, how the materials were produced, and the state of the manufacturing facility. Every step is analyzed so that customers can have peace of mind.
Proof of Certification
It’s important to also look for actual documentation on a company’s website, meaning proof that they have GOTS-certified organic materials or fully GOTS-certified products.
There are several companies that show the GOTS logo but lack any proof of certification on their website, leaving customers wondering if the certification is up to date or even exists at all.
If you’re not finding any sort of certifications page on their website, don’t be afraid to ask questions. This type of information and transparency should be available to you.
