We believe in radical honesty — and have nothing to hide. Read the law tags on our Green Mattresses, Vegan Mattresses, and Mattress Toppers.

We believe in radical honesty and have nothing to hide. Because we are so proud of what's inside our mattresses and toppers, we fully disclose precisely what our law labels say before you buy your mattress.

Just so you know, the date on the law label refers to when the label was printed, not when a mattress was created.

Background on Mattress Law Labels

Law labels are legally required on mattresses, upholstery, and stuffed articles (pillows, plush toys, comforters, and bedding) in 31 states and Canada. The purpose of the law label is to inform the consumer of the hidden contents, or "filling materials," inside bedding and furniture products — similar to food labeling. The law label was born in the early 1900s to prevent these articles from being made with contents such as horse hair, corn husks, and whatever else a manufacturer could find to use that the consumer would never see. (Source: Wikipedia.)

There is a patchwork of laws and regulations with which we must remain compliant for law labels. Our labels were updated in September 2019 for uniformity and compliance with the latest state regulations and laws (we still need to change our product design).

Please note:

  1. Our mattresses and toppers are made in our GOTS & GOLS certified Los Angeles, California facility, using domestic and imported materials.

  2. The terminology and information on the law label are strictly regulated for uniformity. Modifying terms, such as "GOTS," "GOLS," "organic," "natural," or "100%," are not allowed in the top "filling materials" section in some states but can be listed elsewhere on the label. Regulations are listed here.

  3. The 100% organic cotton ticking fabric is not listed in the top "filling materials" section because the cotton ticking is not inside the mattress, so it is listed in a lower section (where modifying terms, such as "100%" and "organic" are allowed).

  4. Filling materials are listed as a percentage of those filling materials by weight.

  5. The U.S. passed laws requiring these tags to inform consumers whether the stuffed article they were buying contained new or recycled materials.

  6. For mattresses, these percentages will vary based on the size of the mattress purchased. The size of the mattress is noted below. For toppers, they will differ slightly between the plush and firm options as well.

  7. Wool-filled products require the statement “contents sterilized” by law in five states, so it's included for label uniformity.
