natural latex, pure wool, organic cotton
Remember the good old days when things actually lasted? There’s a good chance you still have great-grandma’s wooden dresser and perhaps even her heirloom quilt made from 100% cotton. Pure Wool, organic cotton, flax linen, natural latex rubber, java silk kapok, buckwheat hulls… these are just a few of the beautiful ingredients from nature that also provide quality organic mattress and organic bedding materials. Just like old-fashioned ingredients that have passed the test of time, you’ll find in many cases that manufacturers of organic bedding also use the old-fashioned method to make their products, hand-crafted one at a time using only the finest natural and organic materials. Natural materials breathe – just like we do – so they’re the perfect choice for bedding. We lose a pint of moisture every night and ideally we should be surrounded by materials that offer the breathability to dissipate that moisture and keep our sleep system clean and fresh. Natural materials provide that benefit.
Natural latex rubber mattresses create an ideal sleep system that reacts to your body with dynamic distribution of weight. They feature instant recovery bounce-back, and offer superior support where you need it, while gently yielding softness to other areas of the body. Pure natural latex does not have harmful chemicals – it is moisture regulating so you won’t “sleep hot.” The surface comfort provides proper spinal alignment yet delivers the perfect balance of pressure-point relief… and it’s environmentally-safe. Derived naturally from the rubber tree, the milky sap is made into a wonderful natural foam product that’s know to last for decades with proper care. There is no better mattress component for support, durability, comfort and health than natural latex. It’s usually more expensive than conventional foams and springs but will pay for itself many times over its lifetime, so in the long run it’s actually more cost effective and a very economical choice for the investment of quality sleep. Better manufacturers always include natural latex instead of conventional foams.
Certified Organic Cotton is the absolute most pure form of cotton available today. It contains no pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers during its cultivation and has no added chemicals or preservatives (such as formaldehyde) in the processing. It’s a premium cotton that’s pure and clean – soft and beautiful. Often times, people with skin allergies do better with organic cotton because of its purity. Look for organic cotton certified by a reputable third-party such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). Also to be certain the content is 100% find out if the organic cotton is blended with any polyester synthetic fibers, which unfortunately is very common in mattress fabrics claiming they are organic cotton. Sheets made from 100% organic cotton aren’t treated with chemicals so they do have a tendency to wrinkle which we think is reminiscent of a lovely natural linen, and there aren’t any treatments to make them shiny like satin either. You’ll find they’re simply soft with a gentle smoothness.
