What is the organic latex mattress made of?

The core of this mattress is 15cm of natural latex, this is wrapped in two layers of organic wool – the overall depth is approximately 17cm. The two layers of soft and fluffy organic wool are made of 500gms per square meter wool material, the wool layers are held together with hand stitching. Then the mattress is finished with an organic cotton cover and hand tufted, felt washers and tapes then hold the layers together securely.

The organic latex mattress is made using natural latex formed from the sap of the Hevea Brasiliensis tree.

What does this organic latex mattress feel like?

The latex pad used is medium to firm, the maker estimates the firmness rating as 8/10. With absolutely none of the movement that springs might provide, this latex mattress is a completely different, supportive and super–comfy experience. Soft yet resilient, this mattress gently cushions the body, giving simultaneous relief and support to those all–important pressure points around the body.

What is meant by organic?

These latex mattresses are certified as organic by the Soil Association. The organic wool used in the production of the organic latex mattress is produced from sheep that are not exposed to harmful chemicals such as synthetic hormones, external and internal pesticides.

So that our customers are absolutely clear about what this means, please take a look at the statement below from the Soil Association:

‘The Soil Association’s organic textile standards require that organic fibres be used where possible. These fibres must be grown and processed to organic standards. However it’s recognised that on occasion there is functional justification for the use of non-organic components (fibre and non-fibre). These can be considered as ‘accessories’ or ‘additional materials’ making up part of the main product. These non organic components meet strict criteria in terms of materials and chemical residues and must not exceed more than 5% of the overall fibre content in a product labelled as Organic. In the case of latex, although there is limited supply of this from rubber trees which have been grown according to organic standards, to the best of our knowledge there is no latex available which has been processed according to organic standards. Therefore any latex used in an organic product, would be classed as an ‘accessory’ or ‘additional material’ and must meet the requirements above for non organic components.’ Philip Skentelbery, Certification Manager, Soil Association.
