What's inside?

  • Organic cotton and merino wool cover

    100% organic cotton cover quilted using organic merino wool. Fully removable and machine washable at maximum 30°C. This is the thicker outer cover of the mattress with the natural moisture wicking abilities of wool, for your comfort.

  • 100% cotton inner cover

    100% cotton thinner inner cover. Fully removable and machine washable at maximum 30°C.

  • 2cm graphite latex

    2cm medium-density natural graphite latex. We add a minimal amount of graphite to our latex so that the mattress has more fire protection.

  • 9 cm less-than-medium-density natural latex

    A thicker latex layer for your comfort made from pure, natural GOLS certified Dunlop latex. This is on the medium side of the mattress made from the perfect combination of soft and medium Dunlop latex layers, for optimum comfort and support. This makes the mattress feel as if you are sinking into it but are very supported at the same time.

  • 5cm 100% natural coir

    A rubberised palm coir layer made from 100% natural and biodegradable hairs from coconut husks. Strong and flexible support in your sleep that is even better than infinite springs.

  • 4 cm very dense natural latex

    A GOLS certified Dunlop latex layer that is very dense making. The perfect side for those who prefer a firmer night’s sleep. This is due to the combination of a very dense and medium dense latex layer so that the mattress has a medium-firm side. 

  • 2 cm graphite latex

    2cm medium-density natural graphite latex. We add a minimal amount of graphite to our latex so that the mattress has more fire protection.

more about materials

Two sided - medium and medium-firm

  • Two sided - medium and medium-firm
    • One side of the mattress is  medium-firm while the other is medium. We have carefully picked a combination of softer latex layers on one side of the mattress and a combination of firmer layers on the other side. We have crafted these layers expertly so that the firmness levels are engineered to perfection on both sides. Firm but not too firm on one side and about medium firmness on the other. Overall slightly firmer than our Premium Mattress.
  • Partner cover - free option upon request
    • Both sides are designed to be exactly what you need. No more, no less. For an extra seamless finish, upon your request and for free, we can make two mattress cores that can come under one partner cover, leaving no gap. If you or your partner prefer a softer or firmer mattress, you are able to turn your mattress individually by unzipping the cover and turning the cores to suit you. This gives you both the comfort and support that suits your needs perfectly. How this works is that we cut the mattress core into two and put them under the same cover. There is no gap because the cover is designed to mesh the cores together perfectly. Having this design enables you and your partner to get the support you both need.

Extremely comfortable

  • Excellent support for your spine
    
    • With its superior orthopaedic support, the mattress relieves pressure points and pain while dynamically conforming to the contour of your spine. Relieving pressure reduces the tossing and turning that can interrupt your sleep and promotes good circulation. The result is a naturally perfect sleep and waking feeling refreshed.

  • Sink into comfort whilst being expertly supported
    
    • With this mattress, you will feel a wonderful and comforting sinking feeling before being caught and supported at the right moment. The latex layers provide the softness, whilst the coir core gives you the firm, flexible support you need for a restful night’s sleep.

Seven zones, never ending support

  • Conforming to the seven comfort zones of the body
    
    • The mattress is designed with seven comfort zones for maximum body support. Each zone corresponds to the part of the body it is designed for and provides unique support to that area.
  • What does this mean?
    • Well, your lower back and your shoulders, for example, will have differing levels of support needs. Your lower back and hips require firm support so that your spine does not contort out of its natural position. Your shoulders need softer support so that they can sink into the mattress a little bit. This is how your spine will always be properly aligned.

Anti-allergy

  • Hypoallergen
    • Our mattresses are made from natural materials and are hypoallergenic, for your comfort. The natural latex and coir used in our mattress are dust mite resistant, meaning that you will have a comfortable night of sleep with fewer irritations. Our organic cotton and wool are completely chemical free which makes them very comfortable if you have sensitive skin or asthma.
  • Dust mite resistant
    • We also use natural latex, coir, and organic fabrics to ensure that your allergies are not irritated. The natural latex and coir used in our mattress are dust mite resistant, meaning that you will have a comfortable night of sleep with fewer irritations. Our wool filling is also naturally resistant to dust mites, and the sort of fungal spores that will irritate allergies and conditions like asthma.
  • No chemicals
    • We did not have to use any chemicals to make our mattress hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant as all our materials used have these properties.  

Naturally breathable and cooling

  • Naturally breathable
    • The breathable nature of natural latex comes from its structure; it is very “open cell”, which means that there is room for air flow between the particles. This is what makes the material breathable and cooling for an excellent night of sleep. Coir also does not retain moisture and this is “wicked away” for a breathable, dry feel. This is perfect for you if you naturally overheat a little at night. Organic wool and cotton are also incredibly breathable.
  • Temperature and humidity regulation
    • The organic merino wool removes moisture generated in the night, for a cooler, drier sleep. As well as this, the natural latex and coir encourage airflow and keeps you cool. Organic cotton has a distinct advantage over man-made materials in that the fibres allow ventilation. Essentially, all of the materials we use are designed to encourage a cool and dry sleep.

Materials

Our philosophy is to use certified organic products wherever possible.

The mattress is completely chemical free.

 

Care

1. Your mattress needs to be rotated regularly.

It is not an absolute must but we recommend that you rotate your mattress regularly, as this will even out the wear and tear that is caused. Either do this by flipping the mattress over or by rotating it so that the 'head' is at the 'foot'. The 7 zones are positioned symmetrically so there is no 'head or foot end'.

2. Your mattress needs to air.

Getting air to your mattress is essential for great maintenance. When changing your bedding, it is recommended that you leave your mattress uncovered for a little bit so that the air can get to it. This keeps your mattress looking and feeling fresh.

3. Your mattress needs to be protected.

The best way to ensure your mattress stays clean and fresh is to put a protector on top of it. We sell an organic range of mattress protectors that are designed to do just that.

Otherwise take extra care whilst moving the mattress as the foam fillings can tear if grabbed or pulled on corners or edges. Also, do not use detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress. If you do need to wash your mattress cover, make sure you do not wash it above 30 degrees. You can’t tumble dry or dry clean it either.

FAQ

  • What is the Original Milam Mattress made of?

    Our Original Mattress is made of GOLS certified organic Dunlop latex, natural coir,  GOTS certified organic cotton and GOTS certified organic wool. We have added a small amount of graphite latex to the very top and bottom layer in order to comply with the fire regulations in the UK (BS7177). 

  • How does the 30 day home trial work?

    We will deliver the mattress to you and give you thirty days to decide whether or not you would like to keep it. We do not charge for delivery and pickup of your mattress; allowing you to enjoy the comfort of your Milam mattress without making an initial commitment. 

  • Can the Original Milam Mattress help with back pain?

    Without knowing what your back problems are, we can't answer that question exactly; however, we do know that latex and latex-coir mattresses in general can help with back pain because of the even support they provide.

    We always recommend speaking to professionals if you have back pain, as they will be able to advise you on the best way to manage that; what we can tell you is that many health professionals, such as osteopaths, physical therapists and chiropractors, recommend latex and latex-coir mattresses to people with painful backs for extra comfort. These mattresses will not sag and provide even support for the body, with heavier parts of your body being supported, while lighter areas are supported in a slightly different way. This is generally good for your body and for your spine.

    The evidence most certainly exists that a latex or latex-coir mattress can be a significant help with a bad back.

  • How does the Original Milam Mattress feel?

    You'll feel like you're sinking into a mattress whilst feeling incredibly supported at the same time. We have crafted the mattress to have the softer layers on top and the more supportive layers below. Overall, according to customer feedback, one side feels medium and the other feels medium-firm. It is slightly firmer than our Premium Mattress.

  • Does the Original Milam Mattress work with any bed base?

    We recommend that you use a slatted base; however you can use your new mattress on any quality base in good condition. The mattress will feel firmer if used on solid platform top divan, compared to placing it on a slatted base. A sprung slatted base will enhance the performance of the mattress.

    The gaps between the slats should ideally be between 5cm and 7.5cm ( 2- 3 inches).

  • Are there chemical fire retardants in the Original Milam mattress?

    No, not at all. The Original Milam Mattress is chemical free. Then, how do we pass the fire tests required in the UK (BS7177)?  We use a thin layer of graphite latex on the very top and bottom of the mattress and organic wool to quilt the cover with. Both of these materials are naturally fire retardant and help us pass the necessary tests.

  • How can I keep my mattress clean?

    Firstly, keep it clean by using a mattress protector and ensuring that the mattress cover underneath stays fresh. If you need to wash your mattress cover, just remove it using the zip and wash it at maximum 30 degrees. You can’t tumble dry or dry clean it.

  • How much does delivery cost and how long does it take?

    Firstly, delivery is completely free. The Original Mattress is dispatched in full size with a two-person delivery crew, the Premium Mattress is dispatched in a box. Delivery lead time from your order is 10 working days but we aim to deliver as soon as we can. The mattresses are handmade and we simply need some time to manufacture them. You will be contacted by our carrier who will allocate a delivery date and a four hour time slot. Once your mattress is dispatched, we will send you an email with the delivery details. If you have any questions about delivery or return, please drop us an email at {$siteInfo.siteinfo_email}, call us at {$siteInfo.siteinfo_phone} or chat to us.

  • How is the Original Milam Mattress different from a conventional spring mattress?

    The mattress is an equivalent of a spring mattress with tens of thousands of springs, or an infinite amount of springs if you like, as if you were being supported by one spring for every millimeter in your Milam mattress.

    A huge difference between a spring mattress and a Milam mattress is that a spring mattress makes you feel like you are being supported on top of the springs. With ours, you have the distinctive experience of the soft sinking yet supportive feeling that a latex mattress delivers. It contours to the body perfectly, gives you enhanced lower back support and pressure-point relief exactly where you need it.

  • What happens if I don't like my new mattress?

    If  you are not 100% happy with your new mattress, you need to let us know by email, phone or chat. We will come and pick it up at no cost. This service is completely free.

Our products are beautifully crafted from the best materials. If you have any questions about them, you can call us on 020 3488 4106 or read our FAQs here.
