Unique Points

The Birch mattress was designed by Helix, the team behind the leading mattress brand in customized sleep. Birch takes those learnings in comfort and uses all natural and organic materials. The Birch mattress is a 6 layer construction:

  • Cover - Organic Cotton
  • Fire Retardant Cover - Wool
  • Comfort Layer - Birch Wool
  • Pressure Relief Layer - Natural Talalay Latex
  • Support Layer - Individually Wrapped Coils
  • Base Layer - Wool Batting.


If you've always loved traditional innerspring mattresses, but you're tired of wearing a groove in every mattress after just a couple of years, the GhostBed Flex is made for you. The GhostBed Flex has 7 layers:

  • Ghost Ice Fabric - Smooth, silky viscose-polyester blend
  • 1" Cool Fiber Layer - Creates air flow so you sleep cooler
  • 1" Gel Memory Foam - Gives that Ghost Hug feel
  • 1" Gel Memory Foam - Relieves pressure and wicks away heat
  • 1" Ghost Flex Soft Transition Foam - Reduces the urge to toss and turn
  • 8 .5" Individually Wrapped Support Coils - Enjoy the sturdy, responsive support of the traditional innerspring mattresses you're used to
  • 1" High Density Support Foam - Extra support and durability from the base up.

Ergonomic Handles
Comfort
Our materials come from nature - whether it be wool sustainably sheared from New Zealand sheep or latex tapped from trees. These premium materials are comfortable on your body and conscience. 100% all natural & organic Birch Wool provides unparalleled comfort and temperature regulation. Birch Wool is designed to retain shape with a natural elasticity of each fiber. Talalay latex is up to 7 times more breathable than other types of latex. Natural latex is also hypoallergenic and anti-microbial.
Our 7-layer hybrid mattress fuses the springy support of individually-wrapped coils with the plush comfort of gel memory foam. Experience out-of-this-world comfort, with the best of both worlds. Two one inch layers of special gel-infused Memory Foam absorbs and dissipates body heat as fresh air passes through the foam.
Support
We spent countless hours finding the right density of latex, quantity of wool, and type of steel springs to provide unprecedented comfort and pressure relief. Each mattress features a reinforced perimeter for best in class edge support. The coils that run along the outside of your mattress are actually firmer, so no more feeling of falling off the bed when lying down or sitting on the edge. Natural Talalay latex provides response to cushion your pressure points while giving support. Our latex is carefully managed to ensure consistency. Hundreds of individual steel coils help to cradle your body and provide support, while also limiting motion transfer. Additionally, the reinforced perimeter coils provide best in class edge support.
The core of the GhostBed Flex features the patented Ghost Flex innerspring coil unit with our Spirited Edge™ Support design. Individual 8.5" coils create the weightless feeling you love, while wrapping them individually creates minimal motion transfer. Plus, two rows of specially reinforced coils along the edge of the bed make it easy to sit comfortably without slipping off. One inch of Ghost Flex Soft Transition Foam offers pure pressure relief. This layer of soft transition foam contours to your body and reduces the need to toss and turn. Individual coils offer the responsive support of traditional innerspring mattresses, without the worry of wearing out after just a few months. Additionally, the coils near the edge of GhostBed Flex are specially reinforced for better support - so you can sit on the edge of your bed without sliding off.
