What does the legal label tag on your mattress say?

We believe in radical honesty and have nothing to hide. In fact, because we are so proud of what's inside our mattresses and toppers, we fully disclose — before you buy your mattress — exactly what our law labels discloses.

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. The law label was born in the early 1900s to prevent these articles from being further manufactured with contents such as horse hair, corn husks and whatever else a manufacturer could find to use that the consumer would never see, similar to food labeling. (Source: WikiPedia.) 

There is a patchwork of laws and regulations that we need to remain compliant with for law labels. Our labels were updated in September, 2019, for uniformity and compliance with the latest state regulations and laws. (No changes in product design were.)

Please note: 

  1. Our mattresses are made in our GOTS & GOLS organic certified facility in Los Angeles, California.
  2. The terminology and information included on the law label is 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, simply put, it's not inside mattress, so it is listed in a lower section (where modifying terms, such as 100% and ORGANIC are allowed).
  4. Filling materials are listed in order as a percentage of those filling materials by weight. 
  5. Laws requiring these tags were passed in the United States to inform consumers as to 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 vary slightly between the plush and firm options as well.
  7. Wool filled products require the statement “CONTENTS STERILIZED” by law in five states, so is included for label uniformity.
