How Organic Latex Luxury mattresses are made

How Organic Latex Luxury mattresses are made

There are two different methods that can be used in the production of natural luxury latex mattresses and organic luxury latex mattresses. The original, more established process (dating back over 75 years) is known as the Dunlop method. The newer, more involved process is known as the Talalay method.

In the Dunlop method, liquid latex taken from the sap of rubber trees is “whipped” with air until it becomes wet foam. Then it is poured into a mold, hardened, and vulcanized.

In the Talalay process, the wet latex foam is also poured into a mold with extra room left at the top of the mold. The mold is then sealed; air is vacuumed out of the mold, which causes the foam to expand to fill the empty space inside the mold. The mold is put through a freezing process and quickly vulcanized, locking in the expanded structure of the foam.

Generally, natural and or organic luxury latex mattresses have only one piece of latex. At Dormio our natural luxury mattresses and organic luxury mattresses consist of anywhere from two to eight pieces of natural latex or organic latex. The core of the luxury mattress, which provides the underlying support, tends to be about 6″ thick and is typically made from relatively dense latex. On top of that are the “comfort” layers which are designed to give the bed a softer feel and to relieve pressure points and typically are made from softer natural latex or organic latex.

At Dormio Organic Beds we have the best selection of organic latex luxury mattresses, organic pillows, organic bedding, natural mattresses, natural pillows and natural bedding in the Greater Toronto Area.


How to choose the best pillow for you

A deep restful night’s sleep is at the heart of a productive and pleasant day and a comfortable natural or organic pillow that supports your sleeping style is part of that equation. The correct pillow can be just as important as a good mattress in ensuring a restful night’s sleep. There are few other products that you spend as much time with than the pillow. The right pillow can help ease allergies, prevent neck pain, upper back pain, and headaches. The right choice will make you more comfortable and can be essential to long-term health. Finding the pillow for you can be an adventure, that is why offer such a huge selection.

A pillow should feel just right and it should be thick enough to fill in the gap between the head and the mattress while keeping the head aligned to the body.

Department store pillows are one pillow fits all, this is like wearing size 7 shoes when you in fact need size 9. Most department store pillows are synthetic or down filled. These types of pillow fills become full of allergens over time and are unhealthy for us.

At Dormio we have over 50 different types of natural and organic pillows, ranging from very soft to very firm and from very low to very high lofts and everywhere in the middle. Most have zippers, allowing you the user to adjust the feel or height of the pillow. Natural or organic pillows are not treated with any chemicals to make them antimicrobial, They just are because we only use natural fills. Nature as a way of making these types of fibres antimicrobial without the use of any chemicals. All of our natural or organic pillows breathe very well and never make you hot. A natural or organic pillow if chosen with care can deliver a luxurious night sleep.

Natural or organic pillows tend to be pricier than your standard department store, synthetic and down filled pillows, but they don’t need to be replaced every six months to one year. They are long lasting and stay clean of allergens for a very long time. A good organic wool pillow can last a life time. Dormio specializes in everything to do with the natural and organic bed. Imagine walking in and being faced with the job of selecting the right pillow out of a selection of 60. We use the process of elimination, this is good, but this is better and this is one is even better. With our help, we can easily make the selection feel easy. Once you’ve chosen the right pillow, most can be tweaked at home by adding or removing as much fill as needed to truly make it your own.
