More about the natural and organic materials used by Suite Sleep
Made in the USA with a low carbon footprint! Suite Sleep products are made to last significantly longer than their conventional counterparts by using high quality natural materials. Replacing products less frequently means less waste in landfills and conserving raw materials.
All of the wool used by Suite Sleep is sourced in the USA, no importing from New Zealand or Peru. This helps reduce the carbon footprint of the material. These USA growers use the best animal husbandry practices and the sheep get to graze on natural land never used for agriculture, guaranteeing that it is free from contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Their fleece, shorn from live animals, is also processed domestically, washed with hot water and vegetable based soaps and without the addition of any chemical agents.
All of the Suite Sleep organic cotton is GOTS certified and all of the knit fabrics are milled in the US and Canada. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and uses less water to grow than conventional cotton. It is processed without harsh chemicals and finished naturally using low impact dyes.
The latex is GOLS certified organic and comes from Sri Lanka. The rubber is harvested by tapping the sap of the Hevea brasiliensis tree which produces for many years before being harvested, used for wood, and replanted. Natural rubber plantations are great to help sustain the local economy as jobs are created while not depleting the natural resources of the country. The plantations are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, their processes certified by EcoInstitute and their practices are Fair Trade certified. The natural rubber sap itself is converted into natural rubber foams for use in mattresses and bedding by adding air, natural soap, and natural vulcanization agents, thus creating a healthy and sustainable product.
The 9 inch matching foundation is made to be used with this rubber mattress. Solid wood slats are covered in wool and a heavy duty organic cotton fabric. The wood is pine harvested from sustainable forests in Oregon and Washington.
