Vispring’s founder James Marshall invented the pocket spring in 1901. They continue to produce their own springs from the best Vanadium steel, fitting each mattress & divan with a unique selection to offer a broad range of sleeping options. Many traditional mattress manufacturers have adopted the pocket spring design as it can create a harmonious balance between the right amount of strength & softness helping mould the mattress to your body.
Hand Side Stitching
Long lasting structure & integrity is ensured by genuine side stitching. It’s an intricate technique taking craftsmen years to master. Its design provides supportive strength to the mattress edges to extend the lifetime of your bed.
Wool by very nature is incredibly soft, springy & strong. Couple this with being hypo-allergenic, breathable & ten times more absorbent than synthetic materials. Wool is an ideal filling for mattresses & divans as it works in harmony with your body to regulate your temperature and ensure long lasting comfort.
Cotton has been farmed since prehistoric times. Hundreds of years before the Christian era, cotton textiles were being produced with exceptional skill in India, from where they spread to Western Europe. Cotton is incredibly soft & durable with highly absorbent, naturally breathable qualities. It is uniquely hygienic – wicking away moisture to preserve your comfort throughout the night.
The very name suggests luxury. Eight times warmer than sheep’s wool yet significantly lighter, this long silky fibre is produced from the soft under-fleece of the cashmere goat. It is collected during the spring moulting season, when the goats naturally shed their winter coat. Absorbent, resilient and and exquisitely smooth, cashmere has excellent insulating properties. It contributes its unique softness & sumptuous feel to the finest mattresses.
The strongest natural fibre known to man, silk has been highly prized since ancient times. For centuries its production method remained a closely guarded secret. Silk offers a naturally luxurious bedtime experience, adapting to ambient temperature to provide coolness in summer, warmth in winter & distinctive smoothness all year round.
Horsetail is said to have been first used as a textile in 8th century Spain, where proud Arab stallions were crossed with Iberian mares. As the longest natural fibre, it has been an essential element of upholstery and bed making for generations. Whether from the mane or the tail, it contributes unparalleled springiness for its mattresses. The finest quality is European horsetail, untwisted by hand to preserve the fibres natural resilience and the open structure that facilitates air circulation. Adding horsetail to a bed is like giving it two million extra springs: the fibre bounces back after compression to restore your mattresses shape after a restful nights sleep.
Memory foam is polyurethane with additional chemicals increasing its viscosity and density. It is often referred to as a "viscoelastic" polyurethane foam, or low-resilience polyurethane foam. Memory foam softens in reaction to heat, weight & shape thus allowing it to mould to a warm body in quick time.
Tempur’s passion was established over 30 years ago, when a team of scientists at NASA developed a ground breaking material to provide support to astronauts during lift-off. Their engineers & sleep scientists set about perfecting TEMPUR material. Here’s how it works – Tempur material is a pressure-relieving surface, engineered with an open cell structure that absorbs and evenly distributes the weight of your body and maximises comfort.
