The natural coconut fibres are bound using natural latex that is sourced from the sap of the Hevea tree and works like thousands of little springs that evenly distribute body weight and ensures a long lasting shape.

The 100% natural rubber is sourced from the sap of the hevea tree, which is a natural rubber material that is extremely durable and doesn’t affect the breathability of the mattress. This substance is used in all the mattresses as it binds together the springy core of the coconut coir.
Organic cotton is used to finish the mattress and hold everything in place. Using untreated, luxurious and durable Herringbone organic cotton that meets Eco Tex and Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) and no chemicals whatsoever have been used to treat the material.
