The Leo 9″ latex mattress has one 2-inch and two 3-inch rubber layers inside a zippered quilted cover. Putting a 2″ soft layer on top of firmer bottom layers creates a comfortable mattress for those who sleep on both their back and side. This thickness will also offer more comfort and support for those of a heavier weight than a thinner mattress. Choosing different firmnesses for each of the layers allows you to customize the feel to your preference; and for queen and king sizes you can choose different firmness on each half if one sleeper prefers the bed firmer than the other.
Premium Organic & Natural Materials
Inside PureRest’s latex mattresses are pure OEKO-TEX certified natural or GOLS-certified organic Dunlop rubber. The three layers of pure latex are 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 these beds feel more luxurious 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.
Customizable & Replaceable
The zipper around the top of the quilted mattress cover allows you to open the mattress and rearrange the layers of rubber to customize the firmness. And should a layer need to be replaced for some reason, it can be changed-out for much less expense than buying a whole new mattress. See mattress assembly instructions.
Below are the ILD ratings for the Dunlop latex available. Keep in mind that different manufacturers may name their latex differently, but the firmness should feel similar if it’s a similar ILD. When purchasing a mattress you can choose the firmness of each layer, and for queen and king sizes you can choose different firmness on each half if one sleeper prefers the bed firmer than the other. Feel free to contact us if you need help choosing the mattress height or firmness. Please be aware that using more than one soft layer might void the manufacturer’s warranty and comfort exchange, as soft rubber degrades faster, plus two soft layers would not provide enough support for your back. For help choosing rubber firmness or mattress thickness, feel free to contact us.
- Soft (~21 ILD) is typically recommended for your top mattress layer, especially if you sleep on your side.
- Medium (~28 ILD) is often used for the middle layer(s).
- Firm (~35 ILD) is recommended for the bottom layer, and can be used in higher layers if you prefer a firmer feel or weigh over 300 lb.
- Extra Firm (~44 ILD) is available if you prefer a very firm mattress; 5% upcharge.
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.

Comfort Guarantee and Warranty
Mattresses are not returnable, however if you wish to exchange a layer of your mattress for a firmer or softer feel, you can send it back within 45 days of receipt, and we will ship you a replacement layer; you will only pay the cost of shipping to return the old layer and ship the new one, about $100-$150. This comfort guarantee is limited to one exchange per mattress. Your all-natural latex mattress will also be 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.
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.
