Construction of the Zenhaven Mattress
The Zenhaven Bed is made up of a single outer covering of cotton, a comfort layer of fire-resistant wool, another comfort layer of Talalay latex, and two bases of latex with opposing firmness. The overall design and architecture make the Zenhaven the perfect addition to your home.
Cotton Quilt Covering
The Zenhaven features a quilted covering over all of its mattresses which is made from a hundred percent pure cotton extracted safely from closely managed forests. This not only makes the covering eco-friendly, but also ensures that the product is made from the most professional and premium material. The covering has been proven to be breathable, moisture and bacteria resistant, and will surely inhibit the growth of microbes and molds spores.
Flame-Retardant Wool Layer
Under the plushly quilted cotton layer lies a single inch of the best wool in existence. The wool comfort layer is made from natural wool (free from all sorts of chemicals) which is not only strong and firm but also plush and soft.
The woolen comfort layer not only provides ease and gratification, but is also flame retardant. This means that even if your entire house catches fire, the Zenhaven will be pulled out perfectly fine.
5-Zone Latex Comfort Layer
The main comfort layer of the Zenhaven isn’t made of regular foam or even memory foam. Instead, it incorporates the bouncy appeal of latex with the soft aery technology of varying density. The 5-zone latex layer has been integrated with pinholes of varying size and density, allowing the user to enjoy support under their torso and shoulders and to just sink in everywhere else.
Luxury Plush Support Base
There are two support bases in the Zenhaven. The Luxury Plush support base uses the same technology and material as the latex layer (American Talalay latex). The pinholes are more subtle and softer in this layer, allowing it to lie somewhere between 4 and 5 in the firmness spectrum. But don’t let the numbers fool you. Because over 80 percent of all customers end up buying the Luxury Plush layer. This layer feels soft and smooth at the surface, but at its core it provides support and assistance, albeit a bit less.

Gentle Firm Support Base
The Gentle Firm support base has a firmness rating between 7 and 8. It also uses 3 inches of Talalay latex, but this time the technology is used to provide support and more density, creating a more supportive and firmer surface. This means that the Gentle Firm is perfect for those who love to sleep with added spinal support. So forget about putting a cushion under your lower back, because this bed will do the job for you!
Unlike most mattresses which heavily rely on memory foam gel to produce coolness, the Zenhaven has its very own engineered mattress to uphold that principle. You see, in this mattress, the main comfort and support layers have an overwhelming number of pinholes. These pinholes are able to conduct air and pressure from the surface and let it pass through your entire form, keeping your mattress as firm as possible, while also allowing you to enjoy a cool peaceful night.
Measurements and Weights
Zenhaven reduces a number of obstacles in our way due to its great scientific expertise and underlying technology. The biggest obstacle is the motion transfer from one body to another.
The extra dense and technologically advanced 5-zone latex layer helps in isolating motion from other bodies on the bed, which means that your partner can shift sides as much as they want, while you sleep peacefully!
The Zenhaven is Recommended for All Types of Sleepers!
While we found that most mattresses are only good for side or back sleepers, it made our jaws gape in awe when we discovered that the Zenhaven mattress can work in any sleeping position.
More specifically, we recommend the Zenhaven more for back sleepers, as the intricate design of the pinholes of the latex layer has been engineered to provide support for the chest and shoulders.
The Zenhaven is a daughter project of Saatva mattresses, one of the biggest known e-commerce and mattress selling agencies in the US. The Saatva headquarters themselves are in New York, and they only deliver within the United States, so if you’re from there then you’re in luck!
Better Edge Support
The Zenhaven is not only firm and supportive at the center, but maintains the same level of comfort and firmness all throughout the mattress, even at the edges. This makes sure that the bed does not sag or lose weight and density over time, giving it a plush and new appearance.

Works On All Bases!
We’ve worked with only a few mattresses which claimed to work on all bases, and only a fraction that lived up to that promise. But Zenhaven was definitely one peculiar brand. Although it is highly recommended that the foundations provided separately for Zenhaven be purchased, almost any foundation will work. Currently we only have proof for box springs and innerspring, although other foundations seem to work just fine.
