Earthfoam is organic, fair trade, high-performance natural latex foam made from the best rubber in the world.
Interested in Earthfoam? Wholesale and custom orders are available directly from our factory in Sri Lanka.
To make Earthfoam, we sourced the highest-quality liquid latex there is, created a transparent supply chain from scratch, and built our own factory.
Natural latex is known for its exceptional durability and comfort. It absorbs pressure instantly and returns to its original shape the moment it's released. The airy structure naturally dissipates body heat, and its high density provides stability for people of all shapes and sizes.
But Earthfoam isn’t just any natural latex foam. Our superior raw materials, highly skilled team, and ownership over the entire process result in an incredibly consistent, impeccably made foam.
From bedding to furniture, upholstery to footwear, whatever you make, make it good.
Earthfoam starts as the milky sap of rubber trees harvested by a collective of farmers in Sri Lanka.
When we first started making latex foam, we weren’t happy with the existing supply chains. We’ve spent the last several years building our own Fair For Life certified fair trade network of 323 small organic farms. It’s the largest in Sri Lanka, employing more than 1,700 workers (and counting). We’ve been able to ensure fair wages and working conditions for all of them.
Every one of these rubber tree farms is GOLS certified organic, which reduces water and energy use and boosts the biodiversity of the forests.
Rubber tree forests are beautiful and highly sustainable. One tree can supply liquid latex sap for over 20 years and rubber trees have one of the highest carbon dioxide absorption rates. When our trees stop producing latex sap, the wood is burned to heat our rubber during the vulcanization process.
The liquid latex we collect is meticulously processed using the Dunlop method at our Earthfoam Factory in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Our technicians have an average of 15 years of experience working with latex and are true masters of their craft. As a natural material, latex has natural variance. There’s a lot of nuance and chemistry that goes into processing our foam to meet our extremely high quality standards.
We use our own recipe and highly specialized equipment to create latex foam that is remarkably consistent, comfortable, and durable.
By owning our factory, we know Earthfoam doesn’t contain any fillers or synthetic latex. Plus, making our foam in the same place it’s harvested has reduced energy and transportation costs and allowed us to have a greater impact on our workers, who all earn a living wage.
All of our rubber tree farms are certified organic, and we pay our farmers a premium for the extra effort it takes to care for organic crops. With more biodiversity in our forests, other crops like tea, honey, and kithul syrup (a local sweetener) provide additional sources of income for the farms.
Earthfoam is Fair for Life certified, which has the strictest requirements (and most third-party verifications) of all fair trade certifications. As part of Fair for Life, we contribute to a development fund which is exclusively used to fund projects agreed upon by our collective of farmers to help improve their working conditions and their communities.
Earthfoam holds the most stringent health and emissions certifications available and never contains fillers or synthetic latex.
There are a few different ways to source foam from our Earthfoam Factory and we’re always happy to discuss custom projects. If you have questions or new ideas, contact us.
