Organic Mattress Collection by The Futon Shop:Comfort:
Organic Mattress and Organic Futon possibilities for your home. Organic cotton futons and mattresses hand made in San Franciscois the very best of our eco-friendly organic mattresses & organic futons. Good for the planet... Good for your family... Good for your health... That's what our Organic Sleep Mattress Collection is all about.
Organic mattresses are all made using our long-fiber USDA-certified Organic Cotton which is grown naturally to give your organic futon a soft pillow-like feeling. We compress our cotton batting cores to just the right density to maintain softness yet offer support. For many organic mattresses we add Virgin Wool for a cushier, softer feel; the light fluffy wool fiber has a crimped construction that acts like a spring. We use naturally long crimp wool grown in the United States, that does not have to be artificially crimped like New Zealand wool. Using our GOTS Certified Organic Cotton mattress protectors will add extra softness and pure protection that you deserve.
Natural Organic latex mattresses have 100% pure Dunlop Latex in medium to extra firm depending on the models. Only Dunlop pure latex mattresses can offer densities of 80-100. We do not use the more common Talalay Latex because it is much softer then Dunlop processed latex and can never reach the extra firm densities that give the most support for the best mattresses made today. We also offer soy-based foam mattresses and soy-based memory foam mattresses in a variety of densities as an alternative, for those who want a lighter and less expensive sofa bed mattress while staying eco-friendly.
We use quality materials to make superior mattresses that should last 10 years or more. Remember that body weight is also a factor in durability. For people weighing 250 pounds and up, we recommend the Serenity or Eternity latex mattresses for even and comfortable sleeping with no break down, dipping or lumping. For everyone else the organic futon choices are endless!
Innerspring Mattresses with no motion transfer!
Bouncy inner springs are the cause of most motion transfer, in which the mattress moves around every time you or your sleeping partner shift in the bed. That’s why our innerspring Organic Collection uses only pocketed coils. Each coil is encased in its own fabric pocket rather than attached to the next coil; if you bounce on one coil, the row next to it does not move. Or, choose a mattress without innersprings for no motion transfer whatsoever.
As an active member of the Organic Trade Association, The Futon Shop cares about our planet earth and you! We take extra care to source and use American grown Organic cotton and wool in our mattresses so we can support American farmers. Organic agriculture protects the health of people and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with health consequences, from asthma to cancer.
