The Sitka Spruce is one of the most prominent trees along the Pacific North Western Coast. One of the most unique qualities of Sitka spruce wood is that it is surprisingly both strong and light at the same time. This makes it valued for many specialty uses – turbine blades for wind-driven electricity generators, ladders and oars, aircraft, spaceship, gliders and sailboat masts. Nearly all of the Allied forces’ airplanes in World Wars I and II were made largely from Sitka spruce.
Soaring Heart Natural Beds gives the name Sitka to the combination of a zoned latex mattress for support, layered with our soft latex topper. Our Sitka provides everything you need for a luxurious sleep experience.
The Sitka is the perfect blend of luxurious comfort and simplicity. The Organic Latex Topper provides cushioning that hugs and conforms to the curvature of the body, while the ultra supportive Organic Zoned Latex Mattress provides comfort for a restorative night's sleep.
Made with only the highest quality materials and taking over 100 hours to handcraft from start to finish, the Sitka mattress in unequaled in design and uncompromising comfort. Less plush than the Madrona the Sitka's double latex design provides our clients with the same level of support without the cloud-like feel of thick wool.

Soaring Heart collections are layered, and they're layered for a reason. The purpose of a collection is to provide you with an incredibly relaxing, restorative— and most important—comfortable night's rest. To achieve this, our skilled mattress makers use a variety of materials designed for different functions; support, softness, spine alignment and protection.
The Support Layer
To build anything well, you need to start with a solid foundation. Our five-zoned organic latex mattresses provide the ultimate in comfort and support. Developed and perfected over many decades, they are specially designed to deliver unmatched comfort by giving specific areas of the body the unique degrees of firmness or softness they require.
Your hips— the heaviest part of the body— need dense firm latex to keep them from dropping too far into the mattress, making your spine sag, putting strain on the spine, and causing back pain. Soft latex is required to contour to your shoulders—the widest part of the body—allowing them to sink deep into the mattress and remain in the "Open" position, reducing morning aches and strain. The head and legs have medium firm latex to keep them properly elevated and your spine straight.
- 5 zoned latex support
- Certified organic felted wool fire barrier, 1632 & 1633 compliant
The Comfort Layer
The organic rubber in the Latex Topper relieves pressure points and provides body contouring. Wool batting is wrapped around the soft latex core and enhances the contouring effects. This topper requires little maintenance, just flip and rotate, and it is covered by our 20-year warranty.
- 2" Certified organic soft latex core
- 1" of Certified organic wool on both sides
- Certified organic sateen cotton encasement
The Protection Layer
Last, but certainly not least, is the protection layer. This layer is placed on top of the topper, but under your sheet. The purpose of this layer is to keep moisture out of your bed. Our toppers and support layers are not washable but adding this layer of protection will keep your items fresh and clean as it will act as a washable barrier between you and your sleep system.
- Elastic corner straps
-Certified organic cotton
Other manufacturers combine all these pieces into a single unit, necessitating compromise. Compromise on comfort; on proper back, neck, and hip support; and on suitable care. Conventional mattresses either the entire bed needs to be flipped, which is ungainly and difficult, or the bed can't be flipped, which will accelerate compression, deterioration, and replacement.
Soaring Heart Natural Bed Company designs our mattresses in layers, each separate piece with the exact materials uniquely suited for their function. Each piece can be cared for separately, making you mattress a long lasting investment in your good health and happiness.
What is a Revitalization?
Even if you lovingly follow all the steps to care for your sleep system, there may come a day when your organic bed doesn't feel quite as comfortable as it originally did. Often times, all that's necessary to bring new life to your futon, topper or shikibuton is a few new layers of cotton or wool, and that can cost significantly less than a new bed. Simply fill out the form on our site and we will revitalize it for the cost of just raw materials and labor. The revitalization service is usually 1/5 the cost of buying a new sleep system and protects our environment from unnecessary waste.
Soaring Heart is dedicated to sustainable product design. For over 30 years we've offered revitalization services to customers that have purchased our futons, shikibutons, and toppers
Our latex is made from pure rubber tree sap and we use organic wool as our fire barrier is selected from only the finest sheep farms in New Zealand.
All Soaring Heart Products are 100% GOTS & GOLS certified and we are very proud that our latex mattresses are made with Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) certified latex.
Non-Chemical Fire Protection
All of our organic mattresses, futons, toppers, pillows and shikibutons fully meet federal flame retardant guidelines (1632 and 1633) and pass all tests without the use of any synthetic or chemical fire retardants whatsoever. No PBDE's (Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers), no boric acid powder, no nothing; just organic cotton, latex and wool. There are no prescriptions needed or hoops to jump through, just peace of mind that you are on the safest, healthiest, and most comfortable mattress you can buy.
