Choosing between Awara & Birch?

A good, green mattress that’s kind to the earth, and kind to your wallet is hard to come by. Awara does both, as well as being handcrafted for an incredible night’s sleep.

An Amazing Mattress: But at What Cost?

We’re not really sure what you’ll be paying that extra cash for if you buy a Birch mattress instead of an Awara. They’re shouting from the rooftops about their Greenguard Gold certification, the great air quality of the mattress, and natural latex. The truth is, Awara has all of that (and more) for less money. We built a mattress that’s as easy on the wallet as it is on the planet.

What Makes Awara Special?

We wanted to use only the best materials when making our mattresses. We thought about everything. Being conscious of our impact on the environment, finding new ways to give back to the communities and ecosystems we work with, and creating a mattress you can feel good about buying were really important factors in our decision making process. We sought out partnerships that would make a difference.

  • The New Zealand farmers who care for the sheep, and spin the breathable wool that’ll help keep you cool.
  • The farmers in Sri Lanka who care for the rubber trees used to make the premium Forest Stewardship Council-certified Dunlop latex that provides Awara’s exceptional comfort.
  • Trees for the Future,  the non-profit that plants 10 trees in Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, or Tanzania for every Awara sold

The quality of these partnerships, and the materials we use to build Awara, gives us the confidence to offer a Forever Warranty on every mattress, a 365-night trial, and to promise you a great night’s sleep at a fair price. Sleep well, knowing you’re doing good for the planet

Awara: Good for you. Good for the environment.

So, what are you getting with Birch?

  • Birch uses Talalay latex which isn’t as durable as the Dunlop latex of the Awara, or as environmentally friendly since it requires extra processing. Awara’s Dunlop Latex is great at contouring to your body as you sleep, and also super durable – giving you the same great sleep, night after night. That’s perfect for alleviating tension and giving relief to aching bones.
  • They also use 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, providing the right support and comfort for all.
  • 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.

Awara Doesn’t Compromise

365-Night trial

Premium, environmentally conscious materials

Comfort & Support

Needle Tufted by Hand

We believe you should be able to try your mattress in all seasons. We all sleep differently in a heatwave than in a snowstorm. If at the end of your 365-night trial, you decide Awara isn’t a perfect match, return it with no hassles. We’re always here to help.

Everyone should have access to sustainable options. We’ve chosen sustainable, earth-friendly materials that don’t break the bank: Certified latex, sustainable New Zealand wool, and stainless steel springs. Premium sleep doesn’t compromise on the things that matter. 

With a hybrid mattress like Awara, you get all the support of springs with the comfort of latex. The springs provide responsive, dynamic support for your shoulders, back, hips and legs. The comforting, cooling properties of latex relieve pressure points, and conform to your body to give you unparalleled comfort.  

Awara mattresses feature our distinctive, soft, needle-tufted rosettes made from our New Zealand wool. By pulling ribbons through the full mattress in up to 36 locations, we bind the layers together — without the use of toxic solvent or water-based adhesives, improving durability and stability. 

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.
