True natural latex, without synthetic latex or fillers blended in, is simply natural foam rubber. We offer two different types of natural latex: Dunlop and Talalay. Dunlop, named after the method in which it's manufactured, is the denser, more supportive of the two. Talalay, also named after its manufacturing process, offers softness and gentle pressure-relief. (Learn more about Dunlop and Talalay here.)
Our natural Dunlop latex is certified organic in two ways. The rubber tree plantations are certified organic according to USDA standards, and its processing is certified organic to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS).
Our natural Talalay has been certified as Cradle to Cradle GOLD, a measure of its health impact, level of material re-use, water stewardship, use of renewable energy, and social fairness. The latex is also sourced from rubber tree plantations that adhere to sustainable forestry practices.
Certified organic wool
Organic wool batting helps our natural, organic mattresses meet federal fire safety requirements without using chemical flame retardants. A natural insulator, this same batting also provides the plush feel of our mattress casing, allowing your body to regulate heat and stay comfortable, regardless of the season.
Certified organic cotton
We stay away from cotton treated with pesticides since this is harmful to our bodies and the planet. Our mattress casings are made of unbleached, GOTS-certified organic cotton. When you see that GOTS logo, it means that the material or overall product has met the most rigorous organic standard worldwide.
Woven organic cotton fabric is both soft to the touch and remarkably durable—the perfect material for a strong yet comfortable mattress casing. Why organic cotton? Thirty percent of the world's pesticides are used to grow conventional cotton, and enormous quantities of chlorine, toxic dyes, and finishing chemicals are used to process it. Perhaps the better question is: Why conventional cotton?
