When we say chemical free latex mattress it goes without saying we are referring to to toxic chemicals… those chemicals that can cause harm to the human body. The FloBeds Natural Latex Mattress is chemical free in all the right ways.
Starting from the top we first find the organic cotton two ply European stretch knit. The Euro-knit allows the cover to conform to your body and not hammock or interfere with the support characteristics of latex.
The cover is quilted to organic wool. FloBeds has used wool on top of our latex mattresses since the 1990s because of its healthy qualities: breathability, hollow structure (wicks away 1/3 its weight in moisture), and comfort. When the Federal Government started requiring mattresses to be flame resistant, most companies started using chemicals and artificial barriers to make their mattress pass the open flame test. We passed with organic wool, on all six sides of the mattress (lofted wool as shown below and compressed wool on the sides and bottom).
Not only is the FloBed cover comfortable, healthy and strong… it is beautiful.
Inside the cover it is simple: the best support material in the world… 100% Natural Talalay Latex. Made from the milk of the rubber tree. No blending with synthetic to cut costs. No mixing with Dunlop latex to save money. If we could find a better material to put inside our mattress… we would (even if it cost more money).
All of this great material is supported by our Euro Slat foundation. The sides are made of solid FSC certified sustainable Ponderosa Pine and covered with organic cotton quilted to compressed organic wool.
Contouring bent beech slat suspension provides both give and rotation and constantly respond to the shifting planes of your body, keeping your spine straight and gives just the right amount of support. Bent-Beech Slats are incredibly durable. They won’t break, crack or bend out of shape. (Europeans adopted this Swiss invention 60 years ago.)
This much goodness has not gone un-noticed…
