Bed-in-a-box company Brooklyn Bedding recently released the Bloom Hybrid, an eco-friendly hybrid mattress.
The company says the Bloom Hybrid is 12″ tall and incorporates responsibly sourced latex foam, individually wrapped coils, and a cotton/wool cover. Customers can also choose from three firmness levels.
The mattress retails from $1,199 for a twin up to $2,199 for a California King. According to the company, these prices are “highly competitive for a greener sleep option.”
We spoke with John Kerwin, owner and CEO of Brooklyn Bedding. He told us that owning their own factory allows the company to keep prices low.
“Brooklyn Bedding is one of the few mattress companies to design, construct, roll pack and ship a mattress from our very own factory,” he said in an email to Mattress Clarity. “We make each bed on demand, which lessens our inventory footprint. All of these measures help us to better control costs, then pass on the savings to customers.”
Kerwin explained how that the Bloom Hybrid’s eco-friendly components set their mattress apart from its competitors:
- The cover is made from a blend of Joma Wool and organic cotton, both sustainably sourced materials.
- The comfort layer consists of a Talalay latex foam, which is extracted from rubber trees using eco-friendly methods.
- The individually wrapped coils are made of recyclable materials.

“We believe the earth and all things on it should be used responsibly,” Kerwin said. “We strive for zero waste in our factory: raw materials, including foam, are recycled whenever possible.”
At the same time, he said that this green hybrid mattress is designed to be “superior in comfort and support.” The Talalay foam provides pressure point relief, and the coils add a level of contouring and support.
The company was founded in 1995 by Kerwin and his brother Rob. They began by delivering mattresses themselves and are now a major online mattress brand. For Kerwin, the Bloom Hybrid is a return to their roots.
“Latex mattress construction is an integral part of our DNA: The first mattress we ever sold online, through Amazon, was engineered with latex,” he said. “Our success in that category years ago validated our ability to deliver a high-quality product to an eco-friendly customer.”
The Bloom Hybrid is now available on the company’s website. The mattress comes with a 120-night trial and 10-year warranty.
