Looking for an organic mattress? If you look in New York, that search just got a bit easier. A reader tipped us off to Woodstock Organic Mattress which just recently opened in Chelsea. All of the mattresses are handmade of 100% natural materials like organic cotton, wool, horsehair, and 98% pure latex. No polyester, polyurethane foam, or other harmful chemicals are used in the making or production of the mattresses. As they say, if they cannot pronounce it, they won’t put it in your organic mattress.
This family-run business only sells organic mattresses from WJ Southard, another family-run and family-owned business located in Syracuse. Here are the types of mattresses they have available:
Innerspring: traditional innerspring system.
Van Patten: 6” natural latex mattress.
Charles: 9” natural latex mattress.
1915: individually wrapped coil system.
Crib: innerspring or latex mattress.
