Quality of Materials
Joining forces with Brooklyn Bedding at the end of 2021, Birch Living mattresses are now crafted in their Arizona based factory. Building their own mattresses from start to finish means Birch Living can provide additional value and attention to detail while also ensuring quality manufacturing.
The Birch Living materials are comparable to other organic mattresses in a box, with the addition of eco-INSTITUT certified low-emissions latex, organic wool, and crafted in America. We'll go through what's inside each of their mattresses below to see if it's right for you.
Here's what's in their original Birch Natural mattress:
Cover Layer: The cover is crafted from organic cotton and is supplemented with a subtle stretchy quality. Overall, customers find that it sleeps cool and comfy.
Layer 2: The Birch Natural uses more wool batting than many other mattresses. This organic wool and natural rayon fibers layer acts as a fire retardant.
Layer 3: The third layer is wool batting, which helps regulate temperature and is elastic for added pressure relief.
Layer 4: The following layer is a natural latex which provides support while also relieving pressure.
Layer 5: The main support layer is individually wrapped coils that respond to align the spine properly. Customers describe them as providing medium-firm support, which may feel more like a medium for heavier sleepers.
Layer 6: The last layer is wool batting that is organic and keeps the coils securely in place as you move around at night.
Next, we will take a look at their higher priced Birch Luxe Natural mattress:
Cover Layer: The cover is a quilted, organic cotton euro-top that provides a plush and breathable surface.
Layer 2: Next is an organic wool and natural rayon fiber layer that acts as a flame retardent.
Layer 3: The third layer is an organic cashmere and organic wool comfort layer, which helps to regulate temperature while also providing a luxurious feel.
Layer 4: Another layer of organic wool helps to enhance comfort while also lending to the mattress moisture wicking and temperature regulating properties.
Layer 5: Next is a layer of natural latex which relieves pressure points while also providing balanced support.
Layer 6: The main support layer consists of individually wrapped coils with reinforced edge support. These pocket coils are zoned to provide targeted lumbar support while also limiting motion transfer.
Layer 7: The base layer is an organic wool and rayon that helps to provide durability to the mattress.
Most customers describe these mattresses as cozy with a medium-firm profile and subtle bounce. Most customers like the feel of these mattresses, but there are some that had issues with initial comfort. Versus other similar mattresses, folks have described feeling the wool components more than the latex.
The Birch Natural mattress is on the firmer side, but there is good pressure relief in the wool layers. The Birch Luxe Natural mattress has slightly more medium-feel due to increased comfort layers.
Back Pain Relief
Overall, these mattresses will support the lower back and cradle the spine properly. Larger sleepers may experience some subtle dipping in the wool layers over time.
With the wool layers, these mattresses will do a great job diffusing heat for most sleepers. All but those in the hottest environments will experience a comfortably cool night sleep.
Who Are Birch Living Mattresses Right For?
Although the Luxe Natural mattress is a bit pricey, both of these mattresses are great for those that are eco-conscious but want a balanced wool and latex feel that isn't as bouncy as latex alone.
