Hi incognito,

I currently looking at essentia and omi. Thoughts?


You can read some of my thoughts about Essentia and some of the misleading claims they make and some forum discussions with them in this thread and this thread and posts #3 and #4 here ). Needless to say I would be very cautious here.

OMI makes some high quality mattresses (including organic mattresses) and there are no lower quality materials or weak links in any of them but they are also in a significantly higher budget range compared to other similar mattresses that use the same or very similar materials and components so I would make sure you make some very careful value comparisons to make sure that there is a compelling and clearly identifiable reason that they were clearly "better" in some way that was important to you that would justify the higher prices compared to the many other similar mattresses that are available to you that are in much lower budget ranges..

Hi incognito,

Interested in the OMI comparable mattress. Links?


The tutorial includes a link to a list of the members here that sell mattresses online (in the optional online step) and 15 of them make all (or mostly) latex mattresses (including component latex mattresses with zip covers) that use all the different types and blends of latex and have a wide range of designs, options, features, return and exchange policies, and prices.

There may also be some latex mattresses available that are local to you and if you let me know your city or zip code I'd be happy to let you know about the better local options or possibilities I'm aware of.

Hi Phoenix, could you help specify which mattresses use the same materials as OMI/Organicpedic? Or how we can go about learning the Talalay ILD recipes by layer used in various OMI products?

Hi LJGMDAD,

It would depend on which specific OMI mattress you are trying to "match" because they use different types and combinations of latex but if you are able to find out the specs of a specific OMI mattress (see this article ) which is unlikely (see my reply to your other question here ) then you would be able to check the websites of the online manufacturers/retailers that sell latex mattresses to find out which of them use the same type and blend of latex but you would need a more detailed conversation with each of them to help "talk you through" which of the options they have available would likely come the closest because none of them have the same layer combinations as the Flora Noveau and most of them are also a one sided design so there would be some significant guesswork involved in which of their mattresses would come closest when two designs are so different from each other.

The Flora Noveau uses 100% natural Dunlop that is certified organic so if you are looking for organic latex then the three manufacturers on the list that have it available include ...

www.mattresses.net/
sleepingorganic.com/
www.foamsweetfoam.com/

If 100% natural Dunlop that isn't certified organic is also acceptable to you (see post #6 here for more about organic latex) then you would have more choices available because any of the online list that carries 100% natural Dunlop mattresses would be an option but again none of them would have a design that is the same as the Flora Noveau so here too there would be some significant guesswork involved in which of the options they have available would be the closest.

OK, thanks again for your thorough response. To clarify, however, the Flora Nouveau I sampled was 100% Talalay. The store did have what they considered an equivalent OMI mattress in an all-Dunlop version. I don't know if it had a different name or if the Flora Nouveau is available in both types of latex, but either way Dunlop was not what I preferred. The Flora Nouveau Talalay firmness seemed to provide excellent support while also being more comfortable.

I also noticed you left EZsleep off the list? Any reason for that?

Thanks again!

Hi LJGMDAD,

I switched the last 7 posts to a new topic of their own because they were off topic in the original Saatva thread.

To clarify, however, the Flora Nouveau I sampled was 100% Talalay. The store did have what they considered an equivalent OMI mattress in an all-Dunlop version. I don't know if it had a different name or if the Flora Nouveau is available in both types of latex, but either way Dunlop was not what I preferred. The Flora Nouveau Talalay firmness seemed to provide excellent support while also being more comfortable.


The default for the Flora Noveau is GOLS certified organic Dunlop but they are also available in 100% natural Talalay as well but of course this wouldn't be certified organic latex (there isn't any certified organic Talalay).

If you are looking at latex other than certified organic Dunlop then of course you would have many more options available than the 3 I listed in my last reply.

I also noticed you left EZsleep off the list? Any reason for that?


I only listed the three that have certified organic Dunlop. SleepEZ uses 100% natural Dunlop which is basically the same material but it doesn't have the organic certification (although SleepEZ can order it as a special order).

If you are looking at Talalay latex then you would have many more options on the list to choose from (including SleepEZ of course who has both blended Talalay and 100% natural Talalay available).
