Our natural latex crib mattress is made with a 6" natural latex core. We use 35 ild latex for an extra firm crib mattress. The natural latex core is then surrounded by a thick layer of organically processed Ecowool (you can read more about EcoWool in the "latex and wool info" link at the bottom of the page), which is then quilted to our deluxe PureRest European organic cotton damask fabric. Because wool is a natural fire-retardant, we do not use any fire-retardant chemicals in or on this organic crib mattress. Our natural wool batting is certified by Oregon Tilth. Our organic cotton damask fabric is certified by GOTS.
Standard Crib Mattress Size: 28x52x6"
Natural Latex also known as Natural Rubber comes from the Rubber Tree (Hevea Brasiliensis) and it's acquired through a method called "tapping" where the latex serum is collected from the latex ducts of the Rubber Tree and then used to make Natural Latex.
Unlike synthetic man made latex, Pure Natural Latex is naturally anti-microbial and dust mite resistant; making it perfect for allergy sufferers or anyone who needs to breathe fresh, clean air while sleeping. Its breathable qualities allow it to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter and it is one of the most naturally durable and cushioning materials available in nature, in addition to being biodegradable.
