100% Natural Latex is the healthiest and we think most comfortable sleep material out there.
Sourced from the trunk of the South East Asian Rubber Tree (Hevea Brasiliensis) the native properties of latex are direct from mother nature.
The milky white liquid known as latex is actually the tree's natural defence against mould, bacteria and infection. And its innate elasticity is what makes it both supportive and comfortable
The elastic quality of latex inherently provides your body with a level of support, unsurpassed by any other sleep surface. Reap the benefits of a good night’s sleep, and the impact on your health could be life-changing. Click here to read more about the overall health benefits of sleeping on Latex.
Because of the way 100% Latex mattresses are created, the sensation of nestling into a Latex mattress is like no other. You may be surprised at what you have been missing out on! Latex is also naturally breathable so you won’t overheat, even in Singapore’s hot sticky climate.
Latex mattresses are free of any allergens, including natural latex proteins. They are water soluble and get rinsed away during the manufacturing process.
Dust Mite Resistant
Rubber trees produce latex in order to defend themselves against insects. Mother nature is smart like that.
Latex is naturally resistant to mould and bacteria; they just won’t grow in or on latex.
Because Latex is 100% natural, and because of our manufacturing methods it’s also free from nasties. So you don’t need to lose sleep over our mattresses containing Ozone Depleters, PBDE Flame Retardants, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Mercury, Lead, or Other Heavy Metals, or Volatile Organic Compounds.
Low Partner Disturbance
Natural latex has what is called ‘low point elasticity’ – a technical term, but what it means is that movement at point in the mattress is centralised in a small around around this point. So when one partner moves around in the night, the likelihood of the other partner feeling this and being disturbed is minimilised. This adds up to a better night’s sleep.
Because Latex is made from 100% natural materials, it means they’re fully biodegradable. Your mattress will not pollute the planet for millennia to come. The cover of the mattress is also fully biodegradable. The only thing that isn’t, is the zipper, and we’re working on that. Click here to read more details.
The latex used in a Willow Mattress is certified by both LGA and Eco-Institut, two world leading product testing, certification and quality assurance bodies.
