It’s obvious at this point that Awara really takes its organic labels seriously. That’s why we ensure that our materials are all certified. You can feel secure in the knowledge that our latex is certified by the eco-INSTITUT to be free of volatile organic compounds (commonly known as VOCs), persistent organic compounds, heavy metals, pesticides, formaldehyde, and phthalates. Not only that, but our latex also meets the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton and wool. Additionally, we use no petroleum-based polyurethane foams or chemical adhesives, chemical fire retardants, or memory foams. That means that from top to bottom you’re getting a superior product -- for you and for the environment.
Loom & Leaf does not have GOTS certification on any of its materials. While they do use organic cotton for their covering and have visco elastic memory foam, these are not put to the strenuous tests which are required for the previously mentioned Awara certifications.
