Boll and Branch are perhaps best known as a direct-to-consumer bed sheets brand, but it is now branching out with the release of its first ethically sourced mattress. Starting at $2,500, the ethically sourced mattress comes with a 100-day trial period as well as a 10-year guarantee. The mattress itself is comprised of five layers of coils, latex, wool, and organic cotton. Because the mattress is not foam-based it can't be folded up an delivered. Instead, Boll and Branch will offer free white-glove delivery for the mattress.
Much like its bedsheets, which are made in India by workers paid a living wage and receive benefits, this ethically sourced mattress is made in family-owned factories in Texas and Florida. The cotton used in the product is organically sourced from India, with all the farmers and workers receiving fair pay and living wages.
