Karl & Ezra in the Factory

Humble Beginnings

Sleep On Latex was founded by Karl Shevick as a one-man operation in 2013. Working in conjunction with a distributor of latex foam, Sleep On Latex began selling latex mattress toppers and pillows. Sales grew quickly but Karl soon came to a realization that he needed to combine the sales and shipping operations to ensure customer satisfaction. In the beginning of 2014, Karl acquired a small warehouse space and enlisted the help of his younger brother Ezra. In little more than a year, they would move into a factory 10x the size of their original warehouse.

Journey to Sri Lanka

In 2014, Karl's quest to find the best latex foam in the world led him to Sri Lanka, a small island nation located to the south of India. Sri Lanka has a long-standing natural latex foam industry that has grown around the availability of natural rubber trees on the island. Karl worked with a factory in Sri Lanka to develop and produce our signature Pure Green® Latex Foam. We strongly believe that Pure Green® Latex Foam is the best latex foam available in the world.
