Why should you buy your next organic mattress from us?
#1. Our products are of the finest quality and craftsmanship.
#2. Great warranty. Our warranty protects against softening and depressions. See warranty below for details. This is very important since latex can form a dip or soft spot.
#3. Our extra full "Plush Top" model uses twice the organic wool stuffing of most competitors, which adds 2" of total thickness and makes our mattresses feel plush and wonderful. Customers may prefer our thinner Eco top case for firmer beds as it doesn't increase the comfort with only 3/4" of quilting.
#4. Commitment to the environment.
We use only 100% certified natural and organic components to certify the component purity of our organic mattress bed line. We make all of our mattresses right here in our solar powered San Francisco manufacturing facility that reduces 20 tons of CO2 emissions each year.
#5. We have the "Dream Bed." Our patent-pending Dream Bed is the only mattress that allows a soft shoulder and supportive lumbar zone.
How many inches of latex do I need in my mattress?
Zippered case allows access to latex layers inside
Use the following table to help you select the proper thickness for your body. The proper thickness will prevent the mattress from bottoming out. The table refers to the inner latex core of the mattress, and not the total thickness of the mattress. The outer case can add approximately 1" or 2" to the total thickness.
|Weight||Soft||Medium||Med-Firm to Hard|
|Under 210 lbs||9"||9"||6-9"|
|Over 210 lbs||12"||12"||6-9"|
For all 12" thick Layered Organic Latex Mattresses:
We recommend that you call us to help place the order to build your mattresses. Inner latex layers should be covered with two separate cases. For example: if you want a split firmness each half should be separately encased in its own inner case to hold the layers together. Don't worry, you won't notice or feel anything because of the thickness of the overall outer case. If you don't want a split firmness, we recommend putting a separate case around every 6" of latex inside. This way it's easy to take apart the mattress and move 6" at a time without damaging the latex. Latex is too heavy to move the 12" mattress; it needs to be disassembled.
Please contact us if you need more help in selecting the proper firmness.

How To Unpack Your Organic Mattress:
Organic Mattress Summary:
Our organic mattress utilizes organic, breathable materials that keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Our organic mattresses come in all sizes. We can even customize the size and create a split firmness natural mattress for those who like their side soft while their partner likes theirs firm.
Organic Mattress Components & Ingredients:
We use certified 100% natural latex as the core of our mattresses. The casing is made by quilting certified organic wool to organic cotton fabric. Organic wool acts like a natural temperature regulator, wicking away moisture and heat, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There are no "chemically treated barrier cloths" used to pass current fire retardant mattress requirements; these organic mattresses pass naturally.
Organic Mattress Case Construction:
- Certified Organic Cotton Mattress Ticking
- Certified Organic Wool Batting
- Certified Organic Muslin
- 100% Organic Cotton Canvas Bottom Cloth
- 100% Cotton inner casing (an Organic Cotton inner case can be substituted for a small fee)
The core component of our organic mattress is certified 100% natural latex foam manufactured using sap from the rubber tree. If products are not certified, you really don't know what you're exposing yourself to.
The tree is tapped and the milk from the tree is collected in a bucket similar to the way maple syrup is collected from maple trees. The sap is then vulcanized (a heating process) in a pin mold and transformed into foam. Natural latex foam's contouring properties make it ideal for mattresses, cushions, pillows, and much more. Natural latex's dynamic properties allow increased circulation and provide proper spinal alignment, reducing and sometimes even eliminating back pain. Natural latex is naturally resistant to dust mites, bacteria, mildew, and mold. The entire organic mattress is biodegradable. Natural latex foam is an ideal renewable and sustainable foam. As the trees reach their maximum ages they stop producing tree sap and are harvested for their lumber, which is used in many bedroom sets, such as those found on our site. New trees are then planted in their place and this cycle is repeated.
There are two latex manufacturing processes: Dunlop and Talalay. We offer products made from both processes, and both can produce excellent rubber. However, compared to the Dunlop process, the Talalay process is more time consuming and expensive. This process involves freezing the sap and air bubbles to stabilize the organic components of the latex. This produces a more even and airy cell structure that some argue results in better foam. However, in our experience, the Talalay process does not necessarily produce a better foam. More air means less foam, and less durability. A side by side comparison while lying on each reveals there is little to no difference. In fact, we have more warranty claims of depressions or soft spots in Talalay processed latex than from Dunlop latex. Consequently, most of our products are from the Dunlop process, and all the prices quoted on this page are those of our Dunlop process latex material.
That said, if you are specifically looking for a 100% natural Talalay processed mattress, you may build it from our all-natural Talalay options found on our latex mattresses page. Please be aware that many companies offering Dunlop or Talalay processed natural mattresses are selling a blend of synthetic and natural ingredients, and some state laws allow this blend to be called "natural." The synthetic parts are petroleum based and usually make up 55%–70% of the product. Our latex foam is certified 100% natural tree sap. Without a certificate specifying the make-up of your mattress, you just won't know.
Organic Mattress Layers:
The core construction of our organic mattress is made with layers to achieve your desired firmness. This multi-layer construction results in an organic mattress with correct posture and orthopedic support unique to your body. Mattresses are delivered completely assembled and ready to sleep on. We ALWAYS recommend customers build their mattresses with 3" layers. Read more: Why 3" layers?
It's much easier to return or exchange 3" rather than 6" layers. Even if you prefer one of the options that has a 6" layer just add comments to the cart to divide it into two 3" layers. The bottom layer is a firmer supportive layer that prevents bottoming out. The top layer or "comfort layer" is controlled by the firmness you select. These layers are then placed into our organic mattress case, which has a zipper on three sides for easy access. Layers may be exchanged for 90 days to achieve ideal comfort.

Budgets & Foam Blocks:
If you are on a budget, the least expensive way to purchase natural latex is to simply order a block of natural foam. Perfect for softening life's hard surfaces naturally, or for any special project you may have.
Choosing the Right Mattress Firmness:
Simply choose the organic mattress firmnesses, from soft to hard, that matches your preference. While these firmness descriptions are subjective, they have been surveyed by many people and are accurate descriptions. Read more tips...
A weakness common to almost every mattress on the market is that they lose support with use; some even get softer during the night as you sleep on them. This tendency causes many people to think they need to purchase a firmer mattress than what would normally be comfortable to them for fear that the mattress will not be supportive enough after it has "broken-in" or softened with use. However, the durable and supportive nature of latex foam changes this experience so you don't have to sacrifice comfort for support. Rather than losing support while sleeping, most people who purchase these organic mattresses agree they actually feel firmer in the middle of night. It doesn't just contour to the shape of your body, it dynamically supports and contours to every inch of your body. So simply choose the organic mattress firmness that you think you'd like best. It's that simple. The next paragraph will help explain how this works.
Customer Satisfaction Guarantee:
The layered construction allows for easy "comfort" exchanges to be made no matter where you are in the country. Layers may be exchanged for 90 days from the shipping date. More info about exchanging layers...
We simply send you the next firmer or softer layer you think might feel more comfortable, and you can send us back your layer in the same packaging. This is much easier than returning the entire mattress if you need to make a firmness adjustment. The cover does a great job of holding these layers together during normal use of the mattress. However, one possible down side of this loose-layered configuration is that when the mattress is folded, and over time the layers tend to shift a little. This may require you to unzip the cover and straighten them. The loose-layered construction is our recommendation, and most customers prefer it because of the added benefit of easy comfort exchanges during the 90-day trial period. However, if you would prefer the layers to be more secure, we can glue the edges together using our 100% natural latex adhesive but this would not allow for layer exchanges.
Organic Mattress Care and Maintenance:
Always use an organic mattress pad beneath your sheets to protect your natural mattress from spills. Do not use your organic mattress with an allergy barrier case. These don't usually breathe enough and can cause the entire mattress to rot. Do not use the mattress on the floor or on a solid base. The mattress should be used on slats or our upholstered foundation so it can breathe.
Spot clean any stains on your organic mattress bed with vinegar and water. Do not wash the mattress case; it may shrink or become damaged. Should your organic mattress bed become wet, remove outer and inner covers from latex foam and hang them outside in the sun to dry and freshen. Allow interior foam to be exposed to air but not sunlight. It will take a few days for foam in your natural mattress to dry.
Warranty & Return Policies:
Our organic mattress will last 20–25 years, and we guarantee them to maintain their firmness and not form any body depressions in excess of one inch for 15 years (this is a non-prorated warranty). Read details...
In the event of any failure you will receive 100% credit to use towards current retail prices. After 15 years, our organic mattress beds will gradually get firmer as the natural mattress foam inside slowly crystallizes. We offer a 90-day trial period that begins once you receive your organic mattress. Your organic mattress will not require flipping or turning over. We recommend rotating your mattress weekly. We will cover the shipping charges in any valid warranty claim (in the lower 48 United States). We have a very liberal and clear warranty on our organic mattress line. There are no hidden or other clauses.
Most competitors' mattresses come with prorated warranties, and specified depression limits (typically 1 to 1.5 inches), that do not cover softening of the mattress and require flipping every few months so they break down evenly. These warranties are usually worthless, as most mattresses never form the proper amount of depression necessary to exercise the warranty. Over time a softening mattress could cause back pain. Always ensure that any mattress you are interested in offers a firmness guarantee and no depression warranty.
We cannot control the environment in which the mattress is used, we do not guarantee against mold. We recommend checking the underside of the mattress monthly to see if mold is forming on the cover. To help prevent mold growth in the base of the mattress, we recommend purchasing wool felt scraps to increase ventilation and help prevent mold growth in the base of the mattress. Sometimes mold can form where the latex comes into direct contact with the cotton material when resting on the slats. Organic latex mattresses may collect body odors and perspiration which may be noticeable after many years. Please protect your mattress using a puddle pad and washable organic fitted mattress pads.
Shipping Charges and Restocking Fees:
If you decide to return your organic mattress bed, your refund will be reduced by the shipping or delivery fees, which are about $50–$250 depending on the model, size, and your distance from our factory. We recommend you dissemble your organic mattress into its layers, pack each layer separately in a clean box and contact us to arrange reduced UPS charges. There are no restocking fees for our Layered Organic Latex Mattress unless it's a split firmness full, queen, or California king.
Our Mission & Commitment:
We are a family-owned business that my wife and I started out of our garage. It is our mission to make our customers' lives more comfortable and stylish by viably conducting business with integrity, quality, and competitive value. It is our commitment to promote sustainable healthy products and inform consumers of "off gasses" and risks of conventional foams used in cushions and mattresses. Thanks to our customers' generous business support, we have converted our manufacturing facility to run on solar power. Our solar powered facility reduces 20 tons of CO2 emissions each year. It will run for the next 27 years.
Why use an Organic Mattress?
Most mattresses are made using layers of synthetic foams and fibers over synthetically covered springs. These layers are called polyurethane foam and are found in sofa cushions and mattresses, including the popular memory foams. Polyurethane foam is made from petrochemicals and "off-gasses" while you are sleeping on it, allowing your lungs and your skin to breathe in those chemicals all night long. Even soy-based foams or green tea memory foam are primarily a petrochemical product. Memory foam dealers even go so far as saying their products are "VOC free." This is an irrelevant test (e.g.: asbestos is not a VOC). When looking for harmful chemicals in your mattress or cushions, it is important to ask what chemicals are present. I have spoken with the major domestic polyurethane foam manufacturers and they will not allow their chemical list to be published for fear of liability if one of their chemicals is found or other health problems such as discovered with PSDEs. That day has already passed when, in 2005, PBDEs—flame retardant foam additives—were discovered to disrupt nervous system development, hormone functions, and were linked to breast cancer. PBDEs are found in household dust—not a VOC, just a bad chemical. The entire domestic polyurethane community stopped using PBDEs, but some factories in China continue to use them. So the next question is: What chemicals are they using instead, and why not list all the chemicals used so consumers can decide for themselves if they want to risk the consequences of exposure to those chemicals? Consumers should ask, "Why don't I simply sleep on something I know doesn't contain harmful chemicals?" With that question in mind, our family business has built our line of organic mattresses.
