Loom & Leaf vs Zenhaven Mattress Comparison

Deciding between memory foam and latex for your new mattress? Our Loom & Leaf vs Zenhaven mattress comparison helps you decide.

Loom & Leaf and Zenhaven are both mattress brands from the luxury online mattress company Saatva. The original Saatva innerspring mattress performed so well on the market that the company launched into memory foam and latex.

Nowadays, we consider the Loom & Leaf a top-rated memory foam mattress and the Zenhaven a top-rated latex mattress. Both are made to order in the USA with high-quality materials, but otherwise they couldn’t be more different. That’s why we’re performing an in-depth comparison of these two luxury mattresses.

Key Similarities

  • Free White Glove Delivery: Most online bedding companies deliver their mattresses bed-ina-box style, but Saatva offers free shipping, in-home set up, and old mattress removal for their Loom & Leaf and Zenhaven customers.
  • Spinal Alignment: The Loom & Leaf and Zenhaven mattresses are both constructed with high-density foam layers that cushion and support your spine so that it stays in a neutral position all night long.
  • Responsiveness: Each of these beds earned high scores for responsiveness, meaning they quickly adapt to changes in your sleeping position.

Key Differences

  • Mattress Construction: The Loom & Leaf is an all-foam bed made with memory foam layers, whereas the Zenhaven is constructed entirely of latex.
  • Firmness Options: The Zenhaven is a flippable mattress with two different firmness levelsplush soft and gentle firm. The Loom & Leaf is offered as separate beds in relaxed firm or firm.
  • Pricing: The Zenhaven costs between $550–$1,000 more than the Loom & Leaf.

Loom & Leaf mattress

Loom & Leaf Mattress Review Highlights

  • Spinal Alignment: An aligned spine while sleeping is just as important as an aligned spine while working in order to keep back pain away. You’ll have excellent posture in any sleeping position on the Loom & Leaf mattress.
  • Responsiveness: Unlike traditional memory foam, the top layers of the Loom & Leaf mattress don’t take long to respond to your changes in position. Our testers noticed that the Loom & Leaf was almost immediately adapted to their movements.
  • Cooling Features: The Loom & Leaf mattress features a perforated, gel-infused top layer. The gel pulls heat away from your body and the pinhole perforations allow warm air to escape through the breathable mattress cover.
  • Safe for All Ages: The Loom & leaf mattress is constructed with natural materials like organic cotton, a thistle flame retardant, and a botanical antimicrobial treatment. All of the foams are Certipur-US certified and have little or no off-gassing.
  • Ideal Firmness: The feel of the relaxed firm—or medium firmLoom & Leaf mattress appeals to a wide range of sleepers, since it’s both soft and supportive.

Zenhaven Mattress Review Highlights

  • Flippable: The Zenhaven mattress can be flipped to either side. The plush soft side is extra cushioning and the gentle firm side is extra supportive. Plus, Saatva will send a rep to flip your mattress during the sleep trial, so you can test out both firmness levels.
  • Motion Isolation: The Zenhaven earned a high score for motion isolation, so it’s a great choice for couples, light sleepers, or anyone concerned about disruptions from movement during the night.
  • Edge Support: This is an often overlooked category, but it makes a big difference when it’s not present. The Zenhaven mattress supports your whole body weight from edge to edge, so you can stretch out as far as you want.
  • Eco-Friendly: Saatva uses organic Talalay latex in the Zenhaven mattress. Talalay latex is sustainably extracted from rubber trees, is chemical-free, bacteria and dust-mite resistant, and safe for those with allergies.
  • Durable: Natural latex is one of the most durable mattress materials currently available. Latex mattresses are slower to break down or form body impressions than memory foam mattresses, especially when rotated every few months.

Compare What’s Inside and Feel

The Zenhaven mattress is constructed with Talalay latex, which is softer than Dunlop or synthetic latex. It feels both pliable and bouncy. The Loom & Leaf mattress has a more traditional foam feel. You’ll feel cradled by the relaxed firm option and supported above the mattress on the firm option.

Inside the Loom & Leaf Mattress

  • Organic Cotton Cover: The quilted mattress cover includes a natural thistle flame retardant and thin foam layer.
  • Cooling Gel Memory Foam: The comfort layer is infused with a gel swirl that regulates the temperature of the mattress surface. The memory foam is perforated with pinholes that enable warm air to travel out of the mattress.
  • Premium Memory Foam: The second memory foam layer evenly distributes your body weight across the mattress surface by contouring around your shoulders, lower back, and waist. 
  • High-Density Foam: The support layers include a transition pad and two stable polyfoam layers that prevent sagging.
A look inside the ZenHaven mattress.

Inside the Zenhaven Mattress

  • Mattress Cover: The Zenhaven mattress is wrapped in a knit fabric woven from 100% organic New Zealand wool and organic cotton.
  • Gentle-Firm Side: The firmer side is made from Talalay foam molded with 5 zones of targeted support. You get greater density—and thus more support—under your shoulders and waist. 
  • Latex Support Core: The support layer is 6” thick and made with 100% OEKO-TEX certified Talalay latex. It’s durable, supportive, and naturally cooling.
  • Luxury-Plush Side: The second “top layer” has a noticeably softer feel that provides extra contouring to sensitive pressure points. It has the same 5 zone support system as the gentle-firm side.

Motion Transfer

Motion transfer is an important category for couples and light sleepers. A restless sleeping partner can cause the mattress to rock and shake, which disrupts the sleep of anyone else on the mattress.

The Zenhaven earned a higher score in this category, so it’s a better choice for sleepers concerned about motion isolation

Edge Support

The Zenhaven mattress earned a near-perfect score for edge support. Our testers felt comfortable lying and sitting on the edge of the bed. The Loom & Leaf mattress received an average score for edge support. It provides good support for those lying near the edge of the bed but not sitting on the side of the bed.

Pressure Relief

Both mattresses received relatively high scores for pressure relief, with the Zenhaven outperforming the Loom & Leaf by one point. We think the luxury plush side of the Zenhaven is best for stomach and side sleepers, while the gentle firm side is better for back sleepers or heavier stomach sleepers. The Loom & Leaf better for back or stomach sleepers with light to average body types.


Latex is naturally temperature regulating, so it’s no surprise that the Zenhaven scored higher for cooling. Both of these mattresses received above average scores in the cooling category, thanks to intentional cooling features, but the Zenhaven is better for those who sleep particularly warm.

Our Summary: Which Is the Best Mattress?

The Zenhaven soft side is best for side sleepers and the gentle firm side supports heavyweight sleepers. The Loom & Leaf relaxed firm option is best for back sleepers and stomach sleepers. You’ll save hundreds on the Loom & Leaf mattress. Zenhaven works better for couples and hot sleepers.

Fortunately, you get a 180-night sleep trial, free white glove delivery, and easy returns with either mattress. Zenhaven customers are protected by a warranty that is 20 years, versus 15 years for the Loom & Leaf customers.
