latex mattress

People researching natural latex mattresses often become confused by these arcane-sounding terms and what they really mean. “Dunlop” and “Talalay” are two different processes by which raw latex is made into a durable block of latex foam. The Dunlop method is the original and older method – the latex serum is spun, poured into a mold, then baked (vulcanized). In the Talalay method the latex is spun, then expanded in a sealed mold by applying a vacuum, flash frozen, then vulcanized.  Talalay latex is often a blend of natural and synthetic latex.  In our opinion the Dunlop method creates a longer lasting, better supporting mattress core. Our Dunlop Latex is 100% Natural/Organic.
