Organic Mattresses Inc.

Find the best organic mattress in Portland, Oregon

Organic Mattresses, Inc. (OMI) is a brand of luxury mattress appealing to the discerning health-conscious, eco-friendly customer. Their 81 collections, including the Organicpedic™ and Naturals™ brands, come from “the nation’s only large-scale, smoke, chemical and fragrance-free factory.” OMI’s organic mattresses – along with organic mattress pads, toppers and covers – are hand-crafted in Northern California from certified organic cotton, wool and rubber latex. The company is passionate about supporting cruelty-free sheep farms and sustainable farming practices.

The man behind Organic Mattresses Inc.

OMI Mattress Inc. Founder Walter Bader has been a longtime sufferer of multiple chemical sensitivity. The simple act of walking down the detergent aisle at the supermarket would cause his eyes and throat to burn. In the nineties, he founded an organic cleaning and personal care company. Later, he began importing natural latex mattresses from Canada and started his own company in 2003 to control every aspect of production.

Bader published a book, “Toxic Bedrooms: Your Guide to a Safe Night’s Sleep” (Freedom Publishing, 2007), to better educate consumers. He told the NY Times, “I have personally believed for 20 years that mattresses are at the same place cigarettes were in the 1930s — potentially very dangerous and no government warnings.”

Affordable organic mattress models

OMI currently offers three organic mattress collections:

  • OrganicPedic Certified Organic Mattress Collection – The 10 different latex and inner spring OrganicPedic mattress models vary by surface, firmness and depth but all meet the same high certification standards. Customers love the customization options, which allows them to choose the firmness level of individual zones within the mattress – ideal for couples who can’t decide on one standard of comfort.
  • OrganicPedic Earth Mattress Collection – The four models of 100% natural organic rubber latex range from medium-firm to ultra-soft, and from eight to 12 inches in depth. Customers like the supreme comfort offered by these cloud-like organic mattresses.
  • Naturals Healthy Life Collection – The eight models of organic latex mattress differ in depth, comfort level and supportive firmness that goes from Extra-Firm to Ultra-Plush. Customers like that this collection comes with a removable extra-soft pillowtop organic mattress cover option.

Why buy organic mattresses?

Some buyers ask whether organic mattresses are really worth the extra cost. Our Sleep Specialists say “that all depends,” based on your lifestyle preferences. There has been no concrete evidence that exposure to components used in bed manufacturing leads to proven health risks; but by the same token, many people have better peace of mind when they limit exposure to toxins, whether it’s about buying organic produce, meat, beauty products, cleaning supplies or beds.

Here are a few of the reasons people commonly cite for buying OMI organic mattresses:

  • Less toxic for the home environment
  • Great for chemical and dust mite allergy sufferers
  • Cooler temperature for sounder sleep
  • Natural materials will eventually biodegrade in a landfill
  • Does not damage trees and is cruelty-free
  • Carries flame-retardant properties without chemical treatment
  • Lasts several years longer than traditional mattresses
  • Widely considered some of the most comfortable luxury mattresses on the market
