Awara Out sleeps Birch every time

Our customers report an incredible night’s sleep on their Awara. You’re getting dreamy sleep, peace of mind about your environmental impact, and incredible benefits, all for $600 less than Birch.

  • Birch uses Talalay latex which isn’t as durable as the Dunlop latex of the Awara, or as environmental since it requires extra processing. Awara’s Dunlop Latex is great at contouring to your body as you sleep, and also super durable – meaning it’s going to sleep the same night after night. That’s perfect for alleviating tension and giving relief to aching bones.
  • Birch uses a complex zoning system to provide support. But unhappy customers claim their hips and waist stay on top of the mattress while their shoulders and legs sink in. Not exactly cozy conditions for Dreamland Express. The Awara mattress is built with similar hybrid technology –  but without zoning. Our individually wrapped coils work together with our latex layer in order to respond to the shape of your body – whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach.
  • Because of how much Awara cares about the planet and sustainability, we’ve made sure that our mattress is Rainforest Alliance certified. Not only do we use organic materials, and source them sustainably, but the Awara mattress directly contributes to protecting forests, improving the livelihoods of farmers and forest communities, promoting their human rights, and helping them mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis. Birch can’t say the same. While their products may also be sustainable and organic, they’re not Rainforest Alliance certified.

Sleep isn’t complicated. Awara keeps it simple

Guilt-free premium materials, at a fraction of the price

Plush Euro Top with New Zealand Wool

This plush Euro Top is covered in smooth organic cotton and cozy 100% organic New Zealand wool. So you stay cool and dry as you sleep.

Breathable Natural Dunlop Latex​

4 inches of Rainforest Alliance certified natural Dunlop latex contours to your curves and supports pressure points and joints.

Premium Coil Support Core

Individually wrapped 9” coils improve breathability and reduce motion transfer. Even if your partner tosses and turns.

Easy-Move Base with 4 Reinforced Handles

A beautiful cotton blend cover wraps this supportive base. Plus 4 sturdy handles to make any move a breeze.

Organic Cotton Cover

Natural materials used to help keep you cool.

Fire Retardant Organic Wool

With Rayon fibres as the fire retardant.

Comfort Layer Birch Wool

Not as plush as Awara’s luxurious Eurotop.

Talaylay Latex

Designed to be responsive to your contours and curves, but it’s more processed than, and isn’t as cool or comforting, as Dunlop Latex

Individually Wrapped Coils

To improve breathability and bounce.

Why is the Birch so much more expensive than the Awara?

We really tried to find a reason why the Birch was $600 more expensive than Awara. We thought: Maybe they have better materials? Maybe their mattress is mindblowingly incredible? Maybe it’s life changing. The truth is, we can’t really find a reason why they’re charging more money, for fewer layers. Awara’s mission has always been to make your environmentally conscious & dreamy night’s sleep as accessible as possible. Enjoy a longer warranty (forever) on the highest quality natural materials – for nearly $600 less.

  • The quality of these partnerships give us the confidence needed to offer a Forever Warranty™ on every mattress. Because while 25 years is good for the Birch, forever is better. In short: we chose to do good instead of look good. And then, we chose to pass the savings on to you
  • Birch might give you 100 nights to try out your mattress, but we think that only gives you a snapshot of what it’s like to have an Awara. You sleep differently in a heat wave than in a white out. Our trial lasts 365 nights, so you can see how you sleep in every season.

Sleep well, knowing you’re doing good for the planet
Awara: Good for you. Good for the environment.

“Something about this mattress has completely changed my sleeping life.”

Awara supports your body, your conscience, and your favorite sleep-style.

Hybrid mattresses are a little different to Memory Foam. They are a little firmer: instead of “sinking in”, you settle down, and the mattress supports every curve.
