While the Urban Sleep Store is certainly not the only place to look for an organic mattress, the hope is that this article, and previous articles in this series, serve as comprehensive resources for those interested in shopping for quality organic mattress products.
Taking a look at the Keetsa Mattress Brands
The Keetsa Mattress Company carries several mattress styles, including those with memory foam, plush pillow tops, and there is even a style made with a natural layer of latex. For those who prefer specially coiled tops, the Keetsa Mattress Company offers this option as well, along with a memory foam and coiled variety designed to provide maximum comfort.
What is consistent with Keetsa mattresses is the exceptionally durable foam that is used in each variety. These mattresses are tested voluntarily, and are duly certified as to their relatively pure content and foam density. Additionally, a blend of hemp fabrics is used to produce Keetsa mattress covers, which absorbs humidity, aids ventilation, and is a natural and environmentally friendly material.
While the Keetsa Mattress Company aims to provide affordable products that impact the environment as little as possible, Urban Sleep Store provides more in terms of options, particularly for anyone interested in a certified organic mattress.
The multiple lines found at Urban Sleep Store each contain a comprehensive selection, whether you are looking for a specific memory foam composition or prefer to select from a generous assortment of organic mattresses. Far from being limited in terms of comfort options, Urban Sleep Store carries mattresses that are recommended most often, as well as those that meet or exceed industry standards.
Keetsa Mattress Prices
The least expensive of the Keetsa mattresses start at approximately $475 for a twin coiled variety with a corresponding top layer of memory foam. Most sizes, including most of the twin, full, and queen sized mattresses typically approach $1,000, with the king sized varieties topping out at approximately $2,300. Across the board, these mattresses are designed to provide superior comfort, contour retention, and eliminate pressure during sleep.
While Keetsa may provide a notable collection of memory foam styles, Urban Sleep Store also carries gel, latex, and organic mattresses in addition to assorted memory foam options. Many of the twin, full, and queen varieties are in the $2,000 range, providing an array of organic mattresses that are highly rated in terms of durability, breathability, and effectiveness in relieving pressure. Price for price, our mattresses typically exceed Keetsa options but so does our variety, materials used, and handcrafted organic manufacturing process.
Are Keetsa Mattresses Certified Organic Mattresses?
To assure consumers that they are buying pure, organic mattresses, manufacturers can offer three levels of certification.
- The most common form of these certifications in on the raw material used for construction. Each bale of cotton or wool can be certified organic.
- Next is the certification of the facility that manufactures the mattress to ensure it conforms to organic standards.
- Lastly is the certification of the finished product to ensure it has been third party tested for levels of toxic emissions as published by certifying organizations like GREENGUARD Environmental Institute.
While Keetsa is dedicated to having a minimal impact on the environment, their innovations do NOT include certified organic mattresses. If it hasn’t been certified by third party certification groups in the U.S. can they really be deemed organic?
Conversely, Urban Sleep Store has consistently striven to offer a comprehensive selection of organic mattresses that routinely meet U.S. organic certification requirements at each of the three levels above. Our dedication to providing as much variety as possible to consumers looking for a mattress in the Bay Area is what we’re all about.
Keetsa Mattress Manufacturing Locations
Keetsa was launched with a vision dedicated to having a positive impact on the environment both in the San Francisco area and beyond. Although relatively new, this company has striven to incorporate materials and practices that promote using as much natural material as possible, such as green tea extract, cedar oil, and natural antimicrobials. Additionally, Keetsa has partnered with local hauling and disposal companies to make mattress acquisition and disposal as environmentally efficient as possible.
However, Keetsa mattresses are manufactured in China than shipped to the U.S. for consumers. When any product goes through customs they are subject to a variety of preventative methods that are aimed at protecting the U.S. from contamination from things like pests, viruses and the like. Unfortunately, this is done with chemicals that are often highly toxic.
Urban Sleep Store also services the Bay Area in a way that supports sustainability and recycling, but we go a step further in providing real certified organic mattresses. Our certified line of organic mattresses are all made from certified organic raw materials (cotton, wool and natural latex) grown right here in the U.S. These materials are used to manufacture mattresses in the ONLY certified organic mattress factory in the United States and then certified again as a finished product to ensure it’s purity.
With this triple level organic certification process the organic mattresses sold at Urban Sleep Store are guaranteed to be purer than any other organic mattress on the market or our manufacturer will give you their mattress for free. That’s a pretty bold guarantee but it couldn’t be offered if they weren’t that confident about the purity of their mattresses.
Keetsa Mattress Guarantees
