Savvy Rest is at the forefront of the growing natural mattress industry. Savvy Rest Organic Mattresses are made in central Virginia and available through a national network of independently owned stores.
Savvy Rest’s mission and products were developed in response to mounting concerns about the toxic chemicals used in most conventional mattresses.
Savvy Rest Organic Mattresses are made of natural latex rubber, certified organic wool and certified organic cotton. The Savvy Rest bedding line includes organic mattress toppers, sheets, mattress pads, and pillows.
The Savvy Sleeper – a Sleep Solutions Store
What would lead a yoga-practicing, organic-food-eating marathon runner to start a mattress company? He couldn’t sleep. Michael had insomnia, ironically at its worst while he was working for a futon company. In part, what he’d learned about materials and practices in the mattress industry was keeping him awake.
Most mattress stores were full of chemically treated fabrics covering cheap padding or noxious chemical foams, atop flimsy foundations. Stories of rip-offs, shoddy quality and deceptive product descriptions abounded.
It occurred to Michael that many people approached mattress shopping in a state of fear. So he resolved to create a new kind of mattress company that offered a new level of quality and service. In 2003, The Savvy Sleeper, our flagship store, opened in Charlottesville, Virginia, drawing customers from as far away as Baltimore and North Carolina.
Finding an organic mattress to sell was a tall order. We found one natural latex mattress, but the casing was synthetic. Even the biggest companies in the ”natural mattress” niche were using only some organic materials, or making mattresses that weren't very comfortable. We decided to make our own.
Savvy Rest – Organic Mattress Manufacturer
Our mission was to create an organic mattress that was comfortable, nontoxic, versatile and reliable—and to give customers a level of service they’d never experienced before from a mattress company.
For the core of the Savvy Rest Organic mattress, we chose natural latex for its wonderful feel and longevity. We designed customizable layers to make the mattress adaptable for every individual. We chose certified organic wool and certified organic cotton fabric for a soft yet sturdy casing. And to ensure quality, we required materials certifications from all our suppliers.
We wanted customers to feel safe with our product and confident in our company. So we also decided to allow customers to exchange layers of latex to adjust the firmness even after purchase. Our product and our practices--integrity and service—have led to our growing reputation as America’s leading natural mattress manufacturer.
The Savvy Rest Standard
It may seem just common sense that whatever your mattress is “breathing out” all night, you’re breathing in. But awareness of toxic mattresses is relatively new. Savvy Rest was the first mattress company to take concern for indoor air quality to the logical conclusion: what you and your family sleep on should not harm you with off-gassing chemical fumes, pesticide residues, or allergens.
We’re proud of our history and our success. From a few trend-setting retailers just a few years ago, we now have a large network of dealers who have responded to Savvy Rest’s reputation for quality, integrity and service.
Organic Mattresses: The Savvy Rest is made of all-natural latex (Dunlop or Talalay) in a quilted casing of organic cotton fabric and organic wool batting. No off-gassing chemicals, pesticides, or flame retardants are used. Each mattress is customized for each sleeper with combination of Soft, Medium or Firm layers.
Organic Crib Mattress: The Savvy BabyTM is the nontoxic crib mattress choice. Its solid core of Firm Dunlop natural latex is encased in the Savvy Rest quilted casing, made of certified organic cotton and certified organic wool. Like every Savvy Rest, the Savvy Baby does not off-gas and will not harbor dust mites.
Organic Toppers: Savvy Rest offers two toppers—add one to any mattress surface for extra luxury and cushioning. Toppers are ideal for reducing pressure and create the most luxurious surface possible. Either Savvy Rest topper can be added to an existing mattress.
Organic Bedding: Savvy Rest offers organic cotton sheets, moisture-resistant organic wool mattress pads, and organic cotton mattress pads. The naturally-colored certified organic cotton is unbleached and undyed; the certified organic wool is specially woven for softness.
Organic Pillow: Four pillow styles from Savvy Rest complete your sleep environment. Two are made of molded latex, one has customizable shredded latex fill, and one is filled with organic wool. All are in soft organic cotton casings with a brushed, flannel-like finish.
Foundations: The strongest on the market, Savvy Rest’s matching foundations will support up to 600 pounds. Available in two standard heights, they replace a conventional box spring in any bedstead or bed frame.
Platform Beds: Savvy Rest offers a diverse range of platform beds in a variety of finishes to suit any décor. Beds are manufactured by The BedWorks of Maine and by Los Angeles-based Urban Woods.
Adjustable Beds: A Savvy Rest mattress performs beautifully on an adjustable base, bending easily yet retaining its shape and support. Leggett & Platt’s wall-hugging motorized bases replace foundations or box springs.
