For more than three decades, The Natural Bedding Company has been handcrafting healthy, natural bedding. Since our inception, we have been committed to sustainability and working with low-tox materials, ideals we believe are reflected in our products. Looking to purchase a latex pillow from the Sunshine Coast? Explore the stunning range on our online store or experience it in at our new Gold Coast store opening November 2021.
The organic latex used in our pillows is naturally flame retardant and dust mite-resistant in addition to being hypo-allergenic, antibacterial and antifungal. Strict regulations enforced at every stage of the production process, stemming from our certification to the GOTS and OEKO-TEX 100 standards, ensures the final product is low in VOCs and chemical free.
Sustainable Materials, Ethical Production
While many bedding companies can point to the fair working conditions of their employees in Australia, far fewer are willing to discuss the origins of their materials. All our latex is sourced from sustainable plantations in Sri Lanka that practice low impact harvesting methods. The latex trees are not cut down and instead are tapped and their sap collected, creating a renewable resource that will produce for many years.
Beyond our commitment to sustainable materials, we also care deeply about the welfare of workers. We are careful to only partner with businesses that share our values and pay their employees a fair wage.
Conscientiously designed, the curve of the contour latex pillow gently cradles the head to encourage proper postural alignment. Similarly, the standard latex pillow features an elliptical shape with a firmer edge and lower density core that allows your head and neck to sit comfortably.
Benefits of a Latex Pillow
Handcrafted from organic and natural materials, an organic latex pillow is perfect for people with chemical sensitivities and those who suffer from allergies. The exclusion of synthetic substances at all stages of production ensures our latex pillows are very low in VOCs and ideal for a low-tox home.
The latex we use is a robust and durable material, able to keep its elasticity for years of firm support. Thoughtful design in conjunction with the innate qualities of the latex provides premier comfort and corrects postural alignment.
Comfort and Breathability
Synthetic pillows are often subject to harsh chemical treatments in their manufacturing and will release harmful irritants upon contact with the body’s natural heat. On the other hand, organic latex pillows are low-tox and healthy, utilising a breathable open cell structure that allows heat to dissipate. Our pillows are versatile and can keep you comfortable across a range of night-time temperatures, even in hotter climates such as on the Sunshine Coast. If you are hot sleeper with concerns regarding perspiration, a latex & wool pillow may be the right option for you. The untreated natural wool will wick away moisture and is an excellent natural thermoregulator.
High Profile Pillows
For those who require a higher profile or would just prefer a plush outer layer on their pillow, our organic latex pillows can be made with either untreated natural wool or duck down. The organic latex & down pillows provide the same personalised support of our pure latex pillow but with a soft, luxurious casing. The duck down used is certified to the Responsible Down Standard. On the other hand, the organic latex & wool pillow offers better temperature regulation and a fuller feel. Both standard elliptical and contoured inserts are available for these thicker pillow styles.
King Size Pillows
Need pillows to match your King Single or King size bed? In addition to pillows in the standard size, we offer a King Latex pillow in an elliptical shape. This pillow shares the same supportive design as our standard latex pillow and is made from certified organic latex with an organic cotton cover.
Caring for your latex pillow
This pillow comes with a removable and washable (cool water) certified organic cotton cover. Please note, the latex insert is not washable.
