What is a Latex Mattress?
At Mattress Makers, we use Natural Latex which is made from the sap of the rubber tree. Similar to harvesting sap from maple trees to make maple syrup, latex sap is harvested from the rubber trees to make natural latex. The process is sustainable and in some cases, can be harvested from organically grown rubber trees.
Our San Diego latex mattress stores carry two types of latex: Talalay and Dunlop.
- Talalay is softer latex, it is more buoyant (bouncy) and offers higher consistency. Compared to Dunlop, Talalay is a little bit more breathable.
- Dunlop is more dense latex and creates a more firm mattress. In addition to being all-natural, Dunlop also comes in certified organic.
Both are excellent materials and we sometimes use both in the same mattress: Dunlop at the bottom for support and Talalay on top for consistency and breathability. Learn more about Dunlop and Talalay here.
