The Supreme has little padding at 17 cm thick, and is ideal for those who like a firm mattress. The mattress consists of a foundation layer of rubberised coir, sandwiched between two layers of latex, and an outer layer of Australia Downs wool. The mattress is handsewn into an organic cotton cover. Coir is a springy coconut fibre that has been rubberished by treatment with natural latex. It is hypoallergenic, non-absorbent, natural, and allows for coolness and air circulation.
Latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and dust mite resistant. Natural latex is produced from raw rubber tree sap. The Natural Bedding company uses the highest quality natural latex, without any colourants or perfumes. The raw tree sap is grown in Sri Lanka. Unlike synthetic latex, natural latex does not have a malodour (the product of remaining petrochemicals that outgas).
Natural latex is good for the environment because it produces minimal waste and uses fewer toxic chemicals than synthetic latex and other foams used in bedding.
