HEVEYA BEDDING PRODUCTS
Save the earth while you sleep
THE HEVEYA SPIRIT
Heveya is about more than just
luxurious mattresses and pillows.
We believe in conducting
business with care for our
environment and the needs of
future generations in mind.
Our products are not only made
of renewable natural resources,
but above all are produced in
an environmentally and socially
The Heveya Story
Heveya originated in a response to
demands for comfortable mattresses
made of natural materials and produced
in an environmentally friendly way.
To fulfill that demand, we first looked
for the most comfortable material, which
turned out to be latex. It is highly elastic
and therefore contours perfectly to your
body and gives you great support.
Secondly, we wanted to assure that
you sleep in a healthy and natural
environment. Natural latex is made
from the sap of the rubber tree, Hevea
Brasiliensis (hence the name Heveya).
Moreover, the Heveya cover is made of
soft and fresh bamboo fibre and natural
Finally, we care for the environment.
Heveya is about more than bedding
products. It is a way of thinking that
runs through our company. We only use
latex from our organic latex plantation,
invested in a water recycling plant and
for every mattress sold, we adopt one
acre of rainforest.
Heveya started in Australia, where nature
and environment are the central themes.
Today, Heveya is on its way to become a
world reference for high quality mattresses,
made of natural materials and produced
in an environmentally and socially
The Heveya Experience
To sleep well, your bedroom should feel
like a sanctuary of serenity and peace of
mind. Heveya can contribute to this.
There is more and more evidence
that metal springs and polyurethane
(PU) foams are not good for your
health. Metal springs can act as electromagnetic
radiation amplifier: a compass
reacts and an AM radio receives more
signals when they are nearer to a spring
mattress. PU foams, used as top layers
in most spring mattresses are also pure
At Heveya, we avoid these materials.
Your health is important and a mattress
on which you spend eight hours every
single day has to be of the best and
safest quality. Heveya organic latex
mattress offers you a peace of mind, not
only because of its natural materials, but
also because it is produced with care for
the environment and its workers and it
contributes to the preservation of our
To fully enjoy your Heveya experience,
create your bedroom as a place for
total relaxation: quiet, dark, cool, no
TV or smartphones and uncluttered.
We wish you many peaceful nights in
your Heveya room.
100% ORGANIC CERTIFIED LATEX PLANTATION
The Heveya plantation is the world’s
first organic certified latex plantation. To
obtain this status, our plantation needed
to be fertilized for 4 years with only
100% organic fertilizers. That is the time
required for the soil to be completely
chemical free, so that no traces of
chemicals are detectible in the latex milk.
Therefore, you are assured that Heveya
latex mattresses themselves also contain
no traces of toxic chemical fertilizers.
Our Heveya plantation is audited by
the Peterson Control Union Group,
www.controlunion.com, a European
organization which does regular
unannounced checks of the soil and the
The use of organic fertilizer on our
plantations also creates much-needed
jobs in the area. Just one queen size
mattress requires 12 acres of rubber
plantations to be tapped (which does
not harm the trees). This number of
trees absorbs a huge 143 tonnes of CO 2
from the air every year, and provides
employment for 8 rubber tappers.
Furthermore, the important work of
our latex farmers is paid in accordance
with fair trade principles. In these ways,
the Heveya organic plantation offers
benefits above and beyond its top
quality, chemical-free latex mattresses.
Heveya latex is a 100% natural
product. This means you do not have
to worry about toxic gasses being
released while you sleep. In contrast,
other foams, like PU foam or memory
foam are made entirely of petroleum
Reduce Your Carbon
Each of us produces about 24 tons
of Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ) per year,
by driving, using energy at home or
buying oil based products, thereby
contributing to global warming. One
way of reducing our carbon footprint
is by planting trees. Trees absorb CO 2
from the air. Some trees absorb more
Hevea brasiliensis, the tree which
produces natural latex, is among the
most ecological trees in the world.
A single Hevea tree absorbs about 1.8
tons of CO 2 in its life time, similar to
a rainforest tree. Globally, all latex
plantations together offset 90 million
tons of CO 2 per year, a true blessing for
Heveya organic latex is made from the
sap of the Hevea brasiliensis, the rubber
tree - a natural renewable resource.
Heveya trees provide latex their whole
life and are not damaged in the process.
At the end of their lifecycle, they serve
as a perfect alternative for tropical
hardwood in furniture, hence preventing
cutting of tropical rainforest trees.
When we heal the earth,
OUR MATERIALS: COMFORT MEETS NATURE
Fulfilling the promise of our slogan - comfort meets nature -
we always look for materials which are both good for you as
well as for the environment.
When we select materials for Heveya bedding products, we
always keep two points in mind: nature friendly and sleeping
luxury. Therefore, the materials chosen are of the finest quality.
These are also renewable raw materials which by nature
provide you with essential ingredients for a good night’s sleep.
We carefully craft these top-quality materials into products
designed to improve your health and wellness.
Your health and comfort is extremely important to us at
Heveya. And so is the health and sustainability of the planet.
We have the eco-friendly materials and the technical knowhow
to craft bedding that improves your daily well-being.
Organic Natural Latex Mattress And Pillow
Organic latex is a renewable resource unsurpassed in its all-point
elasticity. The latex core provides excellent support and ease
for the body, adjusting itself to your contours. Being naturally
antibacterial, anti-dust mite and mildew resistant, latex is ideal
for people with allergies.
A repeating pattern of pin-holes in the latex mattress design
creates maximum airflow and breathability. These pin-holes,
in addition to the natural open-cell structure of latex, allow
air to circulate and humidity to escape. This results in a cool,
dry sleeping experience for you.
The latex tree can absorb a lot of CO 2 to help the environment,
and at the end of its lifetime can be a good replacement for
tropical hardwood in furniture.
Our mattress cover is made from bamboo fibre. Woven
from gently spun bamboo pulp, this fabric is silky-soft to the
touch and has a natural fresh smell. Bamboo fabric wicks
away moisture, allowing you to sleep cool and dry in our
Bamboo behaves similarly to cotton in its soft feel,
high durability and ease of care, but offers additional
Bamboo grows very fast and does not require use of
pesticides, making it the ideal renewable resource. Also,
bamboo requires much less water to grow than many other
alternative plants. The extensive root system of bamboo
helps prevent mudslides and erosion.
Cotton-Silk Blend Quilt Filling
A puffy cotton-silk blend is used to fill the inside of the
bamboo quilted cover, providing an additional layer of
softness and comfort for you. Cotton and silk are very
breathable materials, and this cotton-silk blend is designed
to absorb moisture and decrease humidity.
Cotton is an all-natural fibre which is renewable and
sustainable. Silk is a natural, renewable spun fibre.
Every layer that you sleep on has been designed with comfort
and nature in mind. This cotton-silk blend is not only
sustainable but supremely comfortable. In all of our materials
- even the ones you don’t see, like our quilt filling - we take
pride in combining comfort and nature.
Latex delivers supremely comfortable
natural springiness for a restful night’s
sleep. Heveya latex mattresses are
made of 100% natural organic latex.
It has much better elasticity than
synthetic latex and other natural
Latex is highly durable, retaining its
support and elasticity for a long time.
Our Heveya organic latex has been
tested and found to keep its beneficial
properties for over 10 years.
Excellent Back Support
Heveya latex mattresses have excellent
all-point elasticity and thus, it can
perfectly mould itself to your body.
This ensures that your body is aligned
properly and cushioned comfortably.
Pressure is distributed evenly throughout
the body, with no painful pressure
pains. Our Heveya mattress is designed
to give proper support regardless of
which sleep position you use.
Heveya latex mattresses also come
in 7 comfort zones corresponding
to different areas of the body. For
example, the shoulder zone is soft to
allow the shoulder to sink in, while
the hip zone is firmest to offer better
Two Comfort Layers
Not one but two layers of luxurious
latex comprise a Heveya mattress. The
softer comfort layer is on top, while the
firmer support layer is at the bottom.
When you lie down on a Heveya latex
mattress, you will feel a soft sinking
feeling, followed by a sensation of
supportive elasticity. This is due in part
to the natural properties of latex but
also because of our unique two-layer
system. The result is a perfect balance
of comfort and support.
Healthy And Hygienic
The luxuriously soft bamboo cover
wicks away moisture from your body.
This cover features a 3D spacer to
make it fully breathable, and contains
fluffy cotton-silk blend padding as an
extra layer of comfort. This removable
dry-cleanable mattress cover allows for
maximum health and hygiene.
The latex mattress core is naturally dust
mite resistant and anti-bacterial, without
the use of any added chemicals. It is
therefore a great choice for those with
Heveya mattresses are designed and
created for your well-being.
Heveya pillows are made of 100%
natural organic latex with a soft
Heveya pillows have been especially
designed to keep the head in proper
alignment with the rest of the body.
The natural elasticity of latex provides
top quality support and comfort for
your head all night long. The ability
of latex to ‘spring back’ means it has
excellent shape retention properties for
many years, making it highly durable.
The natural open-cell structure of latex
means that Heveya pillows are highly
breathable. This excellent airflow not
only keeps the head cooler, but is
also more hygienic with no trapped
The natural resistance of latex to dust
mites, mildew and bacteria makes our
pillows safe for those with allergies.
For regular cleaning, the silky-soft
bamboo cover can simply be unzipped
and removed for dry-cleaning.
And we will indulge you in an
environmentally conscious manner:
every Heveya pillow comes with a free
re-usable cotton shopping bag.
Heveya bedroom furniture is made of
beautiful teak hardwood. We use teak
wood from plantations adhering to
strict eco-policy and also reclaimed teak
to be as eco-friendly as possible.
We carefully craft this wood into our
signature furniture pieces: bedframe, side
table and drawers. All have a minimalist
design with a sleek yet natural look.
Our furniture is unvarnished because
teak does not need a finish or protective
treatment. The abundant natural oils
in teak give a beautiful warm look and
provide plenty of natural protection to
Besides its eye-catching appeal, teak
has exceptional practical qualities for
your bedroom. Its high oil content
repels moisture, and its high density
means it will not warp or twist, even
under significant changes of ambient
humidity. Teak is strong and durable
and is naturally weatherproof, unlike
most other woods. It can even be left
outside and survive extreme weather
conditions. The natural oils in teak
repel dry rot, as well as termites and
other wood-destroying insects.
Heveya bedroom furniture delivers a
clean-cut European look in a timeless
minimalist style. And all this is carried out
with every care for the environment.

Eco-Crisis In Panama
Far-away Panama may seem like a small
country, but its endangered tropical
rainforests affect the whole world.
On its tiny land surface (less than
0.5% of the world’s land) reside an
extraordinary 7 - 10% of the world’s
known life forms.
Panama’s rainforests - one of our
planet’s ‘lungs’ - are disappearing at
one of the highest rates in the world.
Human activity such as logging there
is responsible for this loss. Without
the rainforests to remove carbon
dioxide from the air, Earth’s climate
will get hotter.
The Cocobolo Nature
Reserve And You
In Panama in 2006, a 1000 acre

and found a donor to buy this forest to
protect its resources. This forest is now
the Cocobolo Nature Reserve.
