I Personally have been in the market for Natural Latex so I spent last few month researching it, Pro's Con's, Manufacturers, ETC. These guys have by far the best prices in the market that I could find. Most others, especially big brand names, going to charge you $3-5k for all natural latex mattress. They will also hide layers (ever noticed a mattress and no detailed information about its layers?), or use brand names to hide actual type of foam/materials. Many natural latex mattresses that are under $3k, usually have 1-2 layers of it (6" max and then other types of foam, such as memory or polyurethane).
I also recommend that you get their foundation. Because latex is at least 2x heavier than a typical mattress, ideally you want a wooden foundation (for breathability) with slats placed 3" less. In my research, most other wooden foundations I encountered have slats placed between 3.5" to 4.5". If you already have foundation with slats, you can buy extra wood planks and place in between to reinforce it. I think I saw them at Lowe's for below $2/plank and they will cut it to size for free.
This mattress has no complex construction or hidden layers: it's a 10" mattress with 3 x 3" continuous pour dunlop natural latex mattress + 1" from the organic cotton top + wool batting for fire protection.
They offer 4 softness layers - please see here for the details (construction tab)
They have also written very good articles regarding assembly , selecting the right firmness , and adjusting to latex
There are very few manufacturers who make natural latex. These guys get theirs from mountain top latex - (this is how they make it ). They use continuous poor dunlop method for their latex. There is little difference between talalay and dunlop method (final result) with main difference being slight softness difference at softer levels.
Some info about natural latex:
100% Natural Latex mattress is actually about 95% natural latex and ~5% binder. The main difference between natural latex versus synthetic is how it's made: natural latex is just that: all natural product (it's collected in the similar way as maple trees are tapped: a cut is made in the rubber tree and milky latex is collected). Natural latex is generally higher density than synthetic. They also feel different, with natural latex feeling springier. I handled some samples of natural latex that's how it felt to me. Best analogy I can provide is the cost difference between maple syrup and the initiation stuff in stores.
- Made in USA
- Very easy to put together (example video ) and because it has removable cover, it can be washed down the line.
- All latex - featuring 3" layers in custom densities. Very easy to change comfort levels. Just unzip the cover and swap the layers.
- Because it's a natural product, it's free of:chemicals usually found elsewhere (brominated compounds and antimony compounds).
- Main difference between memory foam and this is the following: Latex is all natural product, sleeps much cooler than memory foam, much more durable than memory foam. Most high quality memory foam is still rare/expensive (5lbs+ density). In my view, it's better than innerspring because it offers much more support and generally should last longer. Also, most mass market innersprings use very low quality foam (mostly low density memory foam or polyurethane) that will break down in time. Mattress is only as good as it's weakest point. In this case, all natural latex has no obvious weak points.
