Organic Natural Latex Mattresses
Home > Organic Natural Latex Mattresses
At Wood Furniture Co our Victoria store is proud to say that all of our organic latex mattresses are constructed of 100% Organic Dunlop Latex, which is extracted from the Rubber Tree or Heavea Brasiliensis.
Our organic mattress line is built in Vancouver BC, which allows us to keep our prices low, as we do not have shipping across the country built into our price, like some of our competitors. On that same thought, local manufacturing minimizes the carbon footprint avoiding the long distance transport by truck.
Organic Latex Mattress Manufacturing Process
First the Hevea Brasiliensis trees are tapped for extraction of the raw latex. This process is similar to tapping a Maple tree in the early stages of producing syrup. After the milky white raw latex is extracted, it needs to be whipped to mix an ample amount of air. This could be compared with whisking whipping cream. The thick liquid is converted into a fluffy solid consistency. Once the viscosity is just right, it’s poured into moulds with natural soaps added to increase the viscosity into a a more solid consistency. This thick jellow like mixture is heated in a process called vulcanization. This process allows the organic latex polymers to complete a permanent bond, resulting in solid rubber foam. After allowing the rubber foam to cool, it is thoroughly washed to remove residual proteins.
Benefits of an Organic Latex Mattress
Support and comfort
These natural mattresses provide unparalleled support, with a surprising soft comfort level. People are always amazed with the return or support as the mattress embraces every convex contour, and how quick it is to return into every concave contour. Latex is so supportive it can be described as bouncy.
This high resilience, and low hysteresis allows your body to change sleeping position with minimal resistance. This is ideal for light sleepers and people who sleep hot. Your body doesn’t fight the mattress through the night, allowing you to be undisturbed and enter your deep, restorative sleep. The organic latex is constructed with pinholes, which allows air to circulate through the natural mattress, creating a cool, ventilated sleeping surface.
Latex is a premium product, arguably the most durable bedding material available. These products are covered with a 20-25 year warranty to prove it.
Sustainable & Anti-Microbial
Organic Dunlop is 100% natural and is the only foam that does not contain petrochemicals. Dunlop Latex prohibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi.
There are two different cover options for your natural mattress. Our mattresses include a 4 way stretch 50% organic cotton / 50% polyester cover. Available by upgrade for the Tempo & Modesto, but included for the Opus & Unison, is 5.4lbs (based on a queen) of 100% pure, untreated, virgin wool, quilted into the organic cotton cover.
