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.

2) Do a thorough launder of your mattress pads, dust mite covers, pillow liners.  Flip the mattress and catch up with those dust bunnies hiding under the bed. 

3) Check your labels!  C'mon - how long have you really had those bed pillows?

How many plastic straws = one plastic mattress?

by Mike Schaefer February 19, 2020

We green consumers may be a small portion of the economy - but we are growing and we can appreciate how nuts the rest of the economy can be.  Our kids can teach us not to use plastic straws, or to avoid one use plastics at the grocery store - but who teaches us not to purchase a 300 lb plastic mattress?  (How many thousands of recycled straws would that be?!)
