Savvy uses only naturally processed latex—natural Talalay and natural Dunlop. The Talalay supplier certifies that no synthetic chemicals are added to produce this latex.
Savvy also uses only natural Dunlop. This manufacturing process has not changed since 1929, and the harmful chemicals available today were not available then.The most customizable mattress in the world, consists of three layers of natural latex designed to your preference of firmness. “Split configurations” are ideal for sleeping partners with different preferences.
Wool is uniquely comforting to lie on. A natural insulator, it helps your body feel cozier in the winter and cooler in the summer. Wool doesn’t develop hot or cold spots, so you’ll shift and turn less while sleeping. Wool is plush without “poofiness”, so even a light layer keeps you comfortable. Wool fibers retain natural traces of lanolin, which repels dust mites. The microscopic scales on each strand wick away moisture, which dust mites require to survive.
Organic wool is free of synthetic chemicals throughout the processing. The sheep graze in organic pasture, the wool is cleaned without bleach or solvents, and the garneting and carding are done without chemical additives. At Savvy Rest, we use only organic wool.
The Savvy Rest Organic mattress casing contains only certified organic materials. Verifications from widely respected, independent agencies are credible. Less reliable materials are only “described” as organic, or are “self-certified” organic by a manufacturer.
Organic cotton fabric
It’s important to understand the difference between cotton fiber and cotton fabric. Fibers are strands of material made from cotton, polyester, wool, or silk. Cotton fiber is used extensively in mattresses because it is very cheap to produce. Strands of the fiber trap air, creating loft, which can give a mattress a comfy feeling—at first.
Have you ever sat down on an old futon? Mattresses filled with cotton fiber, organic or not, will harden. They also tend to take body impressions, some severe enough that you may feel as though you’re lying in a gully. Cotton fiber attracts moisture, which causes it to compress or pack down. It is welcoming to dust mites, mold, and fungi—all of which promote allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems.
Cotton fabric is different. It is made from spun thread, not loose fiber, and will not compress. The woven fabric is very appropriate for mattress casings and for bedding. It’s soft, breathable and comfortable next to your skin.
