As a bed manufacturer, it takes real craftsmanship to be able to provide support, softness and ventilation.
Support & Softness
Dust mite resistant
Latex is a great material for mattresses. The sap is extracted with care and expertise from the Rubber Tree (Hevea Brasiliensis).
A latex mattress is definitely the healthiest choice due to its natural properties, as opposed to many other non-latex beddings contain petroleum based foams, which release toxic chemicals as they age. Non-latex mattresses also add an additional chemical to increase fire resistance whereas latex is naturally fire resistant. These chemicals are associated with cancer, immunotoxicity, and reproductive toxicity.
Talalay refers to the name Joseph Talalay, who invented Vita Talalay production process. The latex base is essentially filled with air, put in a case and expanded through a vacuum before being flash frozen, which enables the open cells to retain their shape. Then, the mattress is cooked or “vulcanised” at 115°C. Finally, the mattresses are washed, dried and then tested for quality control. The manufacturer determines whether they will combine their Talalay latex mattress with (pocket) springs, supporting and filling materials (foams), or make a complete Talalay latex mattress made entirely with Vita Talalay.
Why Vita Talalay® Foam?
Did you know that the best bedroom temperature to fall asleep lies around 15 and 20 °C? Vita Talalay latex mattresses are comfortably breathable, helping you to stay cool during the summer and snug during the winter. This ventilation brought by the open cell structure helps prevent sweating and promotes a healthy, hygienic sleep.
Usually, mattresses are either soft or firm. Vita Talalay latex mattresses, however, present both soft and supportive features: The softness helps relieve pressure and pain in bones, joints and muscles while its supportiveness provides comfort through. Our foam adapts to your body from top to bottom, providing optimal support for your body. To learn more about our unique production process, click here.
Vita Talalay is made to last. What we want is to ensure that our clients get nothing less than outstanding. What we want is to provide you with the most resilient, reliable and loyal servant for years to come. Gone are the days of hollow mattresses that cave in, gone are the horrible mornings, and gone is regret. Vita Talalay latex mattresses keep their shape for years. With proper care, they could even last you a lifetime.
You can turn around up to 40 times per night while asleep. A good bed should not only provide the adequate support but should also allow for easy movement. If you cannot move well in your bed, you decrease your chances for a good night’s sleep. Vita Talalay latex mattresses are resilient and bouncy which ensure good and free movement around the bed, so you can sleep deeply and wake up refreshed.
DUST MITE RESISTANT
Beds, carpets, curtains, tapestry… Dust mites feed off organic detritus like skin flakes and excrete materials that could contribute to hay fever and asthma problems. Thanks to its open cell structure, Vita Talalay’s breathable latex mattresses have the added hygienical advantage of being hypoallergic and resistant to bacteria. The latex is inhospitable for these little bugs, and the dust-mite resistant cover makes it even harder for them to occupy your sanctuary of sleep.
We believe in our material: Unique, inimitable and incomparable, yet simple: No need for complicated combinations, no need for difficult decisions. We aim to provide you not just one, but the one. Vita Talalay, with a proud history and the finest people to bring you only what you deserve: A peaceful and healthy night’s sleep.
Vita Talalay Latex is Certified
Where to find Vita Talalay latex mattress?
How does the production process look like and how does it differ from Dunlop latex?
More on the production process here.
Why are there pinholes in Vita Talalay® Latex ?
During the Talalay production process, we use molds with this pinhole structure (pinholes are needed for heat and cold transfer). The ventilation features of Vita Talalay are a result of the round open cell structure, not the pinholes.
What is Natural Latex ?
Natural latex comes from the Hevea brasiliensis tree that grows in Asia. The milky-white rubber sap from this tree is used in our product. We use a mix of natural and synthetic rubber in our products. However, for our Natural Vita Talalay® latex, we do not use synthetic latex. The Natural Vita Talalay® latex is made from pure natural latex.
Is Vita Talalay latex biodegradable ?
The natural latex used is biobased and also biodegrades. However, there is no such thing as a foam being biodegradable! Not a memory foam, not a Dunlop latex and not a Talalay. Claims like “biodegradable as an oak leaf” are misleading. Indeed the liquid natural latex rubber itself is biodegradable, but the finished product is not. The reason is that in the process crosslinks are made of the molecules, that can not easily be undone. Which is a good thing: otherwise your bed would be degrading while you are sleeping in it.
Of course, after a long time the particles would get smaller and smaller until you can’t see them anymore. But they are still there: instead of bio-degrading it is deteriorating.
How and where can we purchase Vita Talalay® products?
Stores that carry brands that have Vita Talalay inside their mattress, topper or pillow can be found here.
What is memory foam?
Memory foam is a type of polyurethane foam that has viscoelastic properties. That gives the foam its slow response properties, it remembers the place you have been sleeping.
For Vita Talalay Embrace we have some viscoelastic properties added to the material, showing a better pressure relief and support than with memory foam. Also it still makes it easy to turn while sleeping.
Do you produce customized products?
Depending on the brand, customization is possible or there is plenty of choice to accommodate for every person.
