Our Process

Supply chain

Our mattress is made from many different materials. We care about the supply chain that brings raw materials into our factory. Our latex comes from Spain, part of the European Union, one of the strictest markets in the world. We use GOTS certified organic cotton because we know it adheres to the strictest organic practices. Sourcing the best raw materials guarantees the safety of your mattress and is also an important environmental commitment we choose to make. 

Manufacturing

Each Real Bed is made in our New Jersey factory by a team of experts with years of experience. Many important decisions go into the manufacturing process to ensure safety and quality. For example, we refuse to use toxic glues or foams that could affect your health and are terrible for the environment. But most mattresses need glue to hold them together. Instead, we use a combination of manual and computer controlled machinery to position English felt wool tufts that are safer than glues and stronger than hand-tufting.

 We are committed to making a safe and green product that lasts. Because after all, having a mattress that lasts for years one of the best things we can all do for our pocket and the environment.

Fulfillment

The last part of the process is getting your mattress to you. We use the minimum amount of plastic to safely and securely protect your mattress while it's in transit to you. Our boxes are 100% post consumer recycled content and our printing is plant based. The box is 100% recyclable, at the curb, in most cases. Now it's up to you. When you order, we'll send you an email on how to care for your new mattress so it lasts for a very long time.
