The innovative Dunlopillo foam was the first foam manufactured and to this day, the company are known for being the leading manufacturers of latex mattresses in the United Kingdom.

Dunlopillo latex mattresses are made in a similar fashion to baking a cake. Using industrial ‘cake mixers’ air is whisked into the latex rubber to create the correct consistency. It wasn’t until 1931 that Murphy perfected the art and produced the first latex Dunlopillo mattresses for the retail market.
