Imagine you could choose any spot on your body and make your mattress softer or firmer in that exact spot. That is relief, relief a FloBeds vZone Latex Mattress delivers to thousands of sleepers. The genius of the vZone lies in the six adjustable latex zones, all encased in an organic cotton sleeve, within the zippered luxurious Euro-knit organic cotton cover. Most bodies need attention in three areas: shoulders, hips and lumbar.
Need a little softer in your hip zone? Simply open cover, unzip the pocketed hip zone and insert your soft zone. Each sleeper controls their own firmness or pressure relief. www.FloBeds.com provides a “Mattress & Firmness Selector” and ships worldwide.
Add a European Slat Foundation with flexible beach wood slats under the mattress and one finds sleep and comfort most only.
FloBeds is able to make a pure clean mattress by using natural latex from the rubber tree surrounded by organic cotton quilted to organic wool. The wool acts as a fire barrier and passes the Standard for the Flammability of Mattress Sets (Open Flame Test). The new standard required mattresses and foundations to be able to withstand an open flame for 50 seconds on the side and 70 seconds on the top without igniting. Most companies use FR chemicals or other artificial components to pass this test… FloBeds is proud to use only wool to make our mattresses meet this standard. dream of.
Customer reviews cover the gamut from “herniated disk pain gone” to “our son’s FloBed is far cozier and more comfortable than our more expensive Duxiana.”
FloBeds was started by Dave Turner while a student at Stanford University. They sell 90 percent of their beds via www.FloBeds.com which features both a “Goldilocks Firmness Guarantee” and a Money-back Guarantee. Now the mayor of the small Northern California coastal town of Fort Bragg, Turner likes to tell folks that doing business on the internet is a lot like doing business in a small town: if you don’t treat someone fair, everyone will know about it. FloBeds’ focus on customer service before and after the sale seems to be paying off as 2013 saw their best year ever, and sales continue to grow.
We have had 3 years of very dry weather. The thought of mandatory water rationing is not pleasant, but was on the horizon before these last two storms.
I hope the rain continues.
The sheep need it too!
Spring lambs are frolicking. They will be making future FloBeds wool and live to an old age. Are sheep-years like dog-years? One thing is certain: our customers don’t count sheep!
Maybe you should consider a natural latex mattress made with 100% pure milk of the rubber tree foam rubber cores surrounded by organic cotton and organic wool (the wool is our way of making a fire-safe mattress that meets US Open Flame Mattress Standards). No more counting sheep… just enjoy the great qualities of latex and wool in a chemical free bed of your dreams!

Natural before it was “Green”.
At FloBeds, we construct our natural latex mattresses with what folks now-a-days call Green materials, like natural rubber, organic cotton and Plein-Air Wool, not because we are jumping on the green bandwagon to sell our wares, but because it is the right thing to do. And because, that’s how we have always done it.
People who care about the environment and live a green lifestyle want their bed to be all-natural too.
Purchasing a mattress is a significant investment, so here are some tips to help you get the best value when you buy green.
First, know what materials to look for. You’ll avoid mattresses made of environmentally unfriendly materials if you look for organic cotton, untreated wool, natural latex and sustainably harvested pine.
The organic cotton should be where it counts most… next to your body. Organic cotton is the original sustainable fabric, grown and processed with out chemicals.
Mattress covers should include natural wool. Wool is naturally fire and pest resistant, so a blend of wool and cotton is better than cotton-only. Organic wool allows air-flow around your body, and naturally wicks away moisture. You’ll not only sleep cool and dry, but sleep with peace of mind, knowing the wool is the finest wool gathered in the most sheep-friendly way. Organic wool is free of pollutants and harmful substances with zero chemicals used during the growing and processing. There should be wool on all six sides of the mattress.
When you look inside of a green mattress, expect to find certified natural latex. Not foam, not metal springs, just layers of 100% natural latex. 100% natural means there are no petro-chemicals, just natural rubber harvested sustainably from the rubber tree. 100% natural latex is a great green choice as it’s biodegradable and Oekotex Certified.
The wood foundation should be all natural too. Look for foundations made from FSC certified pine sustainably harvested from Ponderosa Pine forests in the western United States and Birch Forests in Western Europe.
Next, learn about the maker of the mattress; this is easy since very few companies specialize in building green mattresses.
Visit their web site to see what they have to say, and ask around to see what their customers say about their products and service. Then call the company and see how much they know about green products and what they’re like to work with.
Once you find a mattress made of quality organic materials, produced by a company with a good reputation for quality and service, find out where to purchase their bed. Most retail mattress stores do not offer all-natural mattresses so the best place to find a green mattress is online. Buying on-line direct from the manufacturer works because you get to really sleep on the bed so you know how your body feels in the morning. Just make certain they have a money back guarantee and will work with you to get ‘just right’.
Buying on-line can also be good for the environment. Ask if the company uses Smart Packaging to save on resources. A king size mattress and foundation can be shipped in just 4 small cartons which saves fuel and trees. And buying direct from the factory saves fuel and distribution costs.
Finally, you can rest easy if you know your green mattress can be recycled at the end of it’s life. Every part of a green sleep system should be 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
FloBeds was the first mattress company to use wool (and no chemicals) to pass the new Federal FR standards.
