Honest Sleep’s Serenity 9″ latex mattress includes a 6-inch certified-organic rubber core, surrounded by thick layers of certified-organic cotton and certified-organic wool. This mattress is available in three different firmnesses: soft, medium and firm. Usually people who primarily sleep on their side are more comfortable on a softer mattress, while back-sleepers are normally more comfortable on a firmer mattress.
Premium Organic Materials
Inside this wonderful mattress is GOLS-certified organic Dunlop rubber. The 6-inch layer of pure latex at the center is covered with USDA-certified organic cotton batting and a thick layer of GOTS-certified virgin wool, tufted to GOTS-certified organic cotton twill fabric. The thick layer of wool makes these mattresses feel more luxurious than those made with less wool batting, plus the wool provides chemical-free flame resistance and temperature regulation. The wool, cotton and latex conform to your body’s shape and minimize pressure on your joints and back.
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. 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 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.

Because these mattresses are hand-made, finished dimensions may vary up to an inch.
Your all-natural latex mattress will be warrantied by the manufacturer to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of seven years, though life expectancy should be longer than that when properly maintained. The mattress is designed to conform to 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. Compression of 10-15% is normal for plant and animal fibers, and usually takes place in the first 60 days of daily use. To reduce body impressions and achieve the maximum useful life from your mattress, rotate and flip it every 2-3 weeks for the first six months, then continue to rotate and flip it every 3-4 months. Also, sleeping on all parts, including the center, will help avoid bumps where no one sleeps. The natural materials used in these mattresses may have a slight odor upon arrival, which will fade away over time; and we do not warrant for smells. If you are very sensitive to smells, you can contact us to order sample materials prior to purchase. Read more warranty details.
Eco-Conscious Ways to Dispose of Your Old Mattress
Consider offering your old mattress for free on Craig’s List or Facebook Marketplace. Usually there’s 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 pay 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. For more information, see Bye Bye Mattress.
