The Gemini 5″ latex mattress has a 4-inch firm (33-37 ILD) rubber core inside a quilted cover made with organic cotton and eco-wool. This mattress works well for children, guest rooms, and light-weight adults who sleep on their back and enjoy a firm mattress.
Premium Organic & Natural Materials
Inside PureRest’s latex mattresses are pure OEKO-TEX certified natural or GOLS-certified organic Dunlop rubber. The core of pure latex is covered with SKAL-certified and GOTS-compliant organic cotton fabric quilted to a thick layer of Eco-wool (2.3 oz/sq ft) that’s organically processed and certified by Oregon Tilth. The thick layer of wool in the top cover makes this beds feel a bit softer than those made with less wool batting, plus the wool provides chemical-free flame resistance and temperature regulation. The wool and latex conform to your body’s shape and minimize pressure on your joints and back. Latex is grown and processed in Southeast Asia; cotton is grown in the USA; wool is from the Pacific Northwest; mattresses are sewn and assembled in San Diego, CA.
How to Support Your Latex Mattress
For proper ventilation and support, your natural latex mattress must be used on a slatted wood surface with 1.5 to 3 inches between the slats, using either a matching natural wood foundation on a conventional bed, or wood slats on a platform bed. To eliminate the need for a foundation, the mattress may be placed directly on a natural wood platform bed (which comes with slats) like those from Pacific Rim or Dapwood. For the budget-minded, we also offer a roll of wood slats that might work on your existing bed frame depending on how it’s constructed. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about how to support your new mattress.

Your all-natural latex mattress is warrantied by the manufacturer to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 20 years (10 fixed, 10 prorated). It is designed to conform to a your individual shape, which may result in body contouring. This is normal and not a structural defect, but contouring over 1.5 inches in depth below the normal surface of the product is covered by the manufacturer’s Limited Warranty. The natural materials used in these mattresses might have a slight odor which will fade away over time and we do not warrant for any smells. If you are very sensitive you can contact us to order a mattress test kit prior to purchase. Mattresses are not returnable.
Eco-Conscious Ways to Dispose of Your Old Mattress
Consider offering your old mattress free on Craig’s List. Usually there is someone out there who really needs a mattress and they will come and pick it up! Or look for a local recycler at Bye Bye Mattress or Earth911 Please do not send it to the landfill, if at all possible.
Note: Certain states have instituted a mattress recycling program, and we are required to collect a recycling fee when we ship a mattress or foundation into these states. The current fee for California is $11 per item; Connecticut’s fee is $9 each; and Rhode Island’s fee is $10. This amount will be added to your purchase when you check out.
