The mattresses in my store are only made of a few materials. It keeps my job simple. Organic latex from the sap of the rubber tree, organic cotton covers and wool. The wool is being used as the fire retardant. Some of our mattresses are all latex, while others contain latex and springs. Most of the mattresses ship roll packed, which is very convenient for shipping purposes. Others come in three boxes and you build the mattress when it comes.
Latex and Springs
Most of the hybrid latex and spring mattresses are returnable, if you decide you don’t like the mattress within a trial period, usually 90 to 100 days. Not a surprise but mattresses with springs tend to feel a little bit more bouncy. When you lay down, your body tends to stay more on top of the mattress. The springs make it not as responsive or sink in as an all latex mattress. Certainly, you don’t sink in as much as a memory foam. Latex and spring mattresses tend to be more affordable than all latex.
The cost does sometimes depend on the materials in the mattresses and the amount of those materials. Some of our higher end mattresses from Ivy Organics do have springs, and they are 15 to 17 inches in height, with lots of hand stitching. They contain a lot more wool and organic cotton which changes the feel of the mattress. The organic cotton is not being used as just the cover and the wool is not being used as just the fire retardant.
Some of the most popular latex and spring mattresses in my store are manufactured by Harvest and Ergovea. The mattress that has the most give is the Ergovea Pasadena Medium. It feels like the mattress is giving you a hug. On the other hand, the Pasadena firm is the firmest spring mattress in the store. The Harvest Original is a medium to medium firm mattress and should work well for most sleepers. The Harvest Pillowtop has some of the benefits of being a hybrid but also feels a little bit more like an all latex mattress. This is because the mattress has 4 inches of latex on top of the springs. The Harvest Essentials is the most budget friendly, and can be a great option if you like sleeping on a firmer surface.
All Latex Mattresses
Mattresses made out of all latex feel a little more dense with less bounce. The Savvy Rest Serenity has two different types of latex: Dunlop and Talalay. The Dunlop is a little firmer. Talalay latex is a little bit more sink in and great for pressure point relief. Talalay is the closest to memory foam. The Serenity is an adjustable latex mattress. You can have a different firmness on each side of the mattress, which makes this mattress very popular. If you get the mattress home and are unsatisfied with the overall comfort level, within 90 days you can do a latex exchange and just pay shipping. With the latex exchange, you can make the mattress firmer or softer. You can also change the order of the latex layers to make the mattress firmer. Both Talalay and Dunlop can come in soft, medium or firm. There are 3 layers of latex in each mattress. Each layer is 3 inches thick.
We have two all latex mattresses from Ergovea on our showroom floor. The Madera is the firmest all latex mattress, and the Valencia is the most plush. These two mattresses use Silica sand for the fire retardant instead of wool. Without the wool, the cover is thinner and stretchy but still durable. It gives the mattresses a different feel, as if you are laying directly on the latex.
We also carry OMI! The Duo is similar to the Savvy Serenity in that is has 3 layers of latex, however it has a sculpted top. Omi’s signature sculpted surface adds pressure-point relief, added comfort with softness and additional air circulation. The Palera is a medium firm flippable mattress, which features the sculpted top on one side, or a firmer flat latex side on the other. If you add an OMI 3.5 inch topper on to the Palera it becomes the Pinnacle, a very luxurious feeling mattress. Just like sleeping on a cloud!
