Urban Futons - Dr. Futonberg

When it comes to a true organic mattress, the most comparable is the traditional futon mattress. A futon is simply a mattress that bends. It can either be placed on the floor over a tatami mat, or it can be placed on a platform bed frame or bifold futon frame. When it comes to a true natural chemical free night sleep, the best option is to get a mattress with no springs or foam. Everything should be natural material like wool, cotton and latex. Latex is from the rubber tree and is the better than foam and lasts longer. Gold Bond, one of America's leading manufacture of futon mattresses for over 100 years, has launched a new organic futon line. Generously stuffed with plush certified organic cotton, with a wool barrier which acts as a natural fire retardant, along with a supple cotton twill cover. Most futons and conventional mattresses tend to have a polyester, rayon blend which is quite uncomfortable and gets hot. There is also an option to add a 2" or 3" latex core sandwiched in between the fresh soft cotton. Latex will give shape to the mattress and add a little bounce or rebound similar to a spring coil. Latex will last a very long time. These organic futon mattresses are the real thing at a reasonable price.

Recently upgraded from the long lived latex wool wrapped futon mentioned in my prior post above to a SaveyRest latex with a wool topper that is a dream! You choose your 3 layers and we got firm on the bottom, medium in the middle and soft on top. No more aching shoulders in the morning!

I have four 3" Talalay latex slabs on my bed and it's perfect for my fibromyalgia. It does hold heat though. It's perfect for winter, not so much for summer. It's worth the pain free rest I get. Mine came from the "DIY " website.
