Rubber Tree Icon

Sustainable Cycle

Rubber tree plantations near the equator produce latex sap for use in many industries. Our 100% Botanical Latex originates in Vietnam. Trees produce a milky-white latex sap for decades. The trees are then harvested for furniture and new saplings are planted.

Harvesting

Prior to collection of the latex, the bark of each tree is scored; to increase sap production. Workers harvest the latex for use in all kinds of products. It takes many trees to produce enough sap for each core of botanical rubber.

Vulcanizing, Washing & Drying

Once the heated mold is sealed shut, the rubber is vulcanized. The mold is then rotated into the heating chamber to provide uniformity. To ensure cleanliness, each core is repeatedly washed to prevent contamination of allergens and remove proteins and residue. It is heated dry.

Drying, Testing & Tracking

Variations are not tolerated. Every core is tested for density in multiple locations. Each core is then catalogued and labeled for individual tracking.
