Dunlopillo began its journey in the 1920s when Dunlop scientists invented Dunlopillo latex foam. At first it was used to pad seats on trains, trams and aircrafts and then the first latex foam mattress was created. These proved to be a huge hit, due to their ability to keep their shape and they were proven to be doubly effective in killing bed bugs compared to spring core mattresses. Advanced Dunlopillo technology is now used in hospital mattresses to offer patients pressure relif, spinal alignment and back support.
Today, Dunlopillo remain the leading manufactures of latex mattresses and they also make bedframes, divans and headboards.
