Introducing the Balsa 2.0

Introducing the Balsa 2.0

by Katie McDonald August 19, 2019

We're excited to announce that one of our latex mattresses, the Balsa, has undergone a significant upgrade in quality.

In its previous incarnation, the Balsa was a one-sided mattress (flip-able with use of a topper).  Its encasement was crafted from GOTS-certified cotton, but included non-organic wool.  

We have decided to change the sourcing of our Balsa encasements: we are now using OMI-produced, fully organic encasements.  This means that the new, improved Balsa features two-sided, flip-able construction, and all of its fiber components -- wool as well as cotton -- carry the GOTS certification.

As always, the latex cores in our Balsa mattresses are identical to the latex cores that we use to craft our flagship Organic Latex Mattress.  They are fully GOLS-certified, firm Dunlop latex.  

We have upgraded the warranty duration on the new Balsa to 10 years, in recognition of the high quality of the OMI-produced encasements.  

If you would like to try a new Balsa in person, we have one available for test-napping on our Seattle showroom floor!   Coming soon to our Bellevue location.

Celebrating Earth Month 2021
Celebrating Earth Month 2021

Climate change, global warming, ocean acidification, wildlife depletion - the list of environmental challenges we are facing today is seemingly endless.  Endless and complicated - there are no "one-size fits all" solutions to problems that are clearly going to be with us for generations to come.

One thing we do know is that each of us, in our own ways, can make a difference.  We can, as the saying goes "leave our campsite better than we found it." If COVID 19 has proven anything to us over the past year, it is that we are all more connected and more dependent on each other than ever before.

At Soaring Heart one of our biggest environmental commitments is our annual GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) compliance certification.
