It's time for a new mattress and we're thinking something organic. We like em firm. Latex? Wool? Combos? Has anyone here made their own mattress? All ideas welcomed. Cheers, Kenneth

Not sure what you mean by organic. Aireloom might not be entirely organic, but they try to be "eco-friendly," or at least advertise as such.

From their website.


1. Oeko-Tex certified fabrics
2. Bio-based luxury foams
3. Natural Talalay latex
4. Natural bamboo fabrics
5. Natural Forestex fabrics
6. Natural eco-friendly upholstery
7. Bio-based foam encasement
8. Sustainable forest lumber

CERTIFICATES
• Latex International – Oeko-Tex 100 standard
• Enkev B. V – Oeko-Tex 100 standard
• Bekaert Textiles USA Inc – Oeko-Tex 100 standard
• Latex International – Talatech to standard
• Bio-Inspecta
• Forestex – Natural fibers to standard
• CERTIFIED – organic cotton

They are comfortable and not cheap. We are happy with ours.

Here is what we did:

1) Obtain a +/- 6" NATURAL Latex Slab

2) Add a Wool Topper or Thick Wool Comforter used as a topper

There are plenty of sources. SleepShop is who we used originally:

Also, Holy Lamb Organics is fantastic.

Up in one of the chalet (high country cottage) my grandparents had we used chestnut tree leaves inside a cotton bag as a mattress.
Used to be common there till mid last century.
Very musical.
No idea how comfortable it really was because I was a kid then...
