Traditionally Handmade

All of Vispring’s mattresses are traditionally handmade to order by master craftsmen, using the finest natural fibres and heritage techniques – such as genuine hand side-stitching – refined for over a century and passed down from generation to generation. The unique step by step production process by Vispring makes every bed special and the best bed for you.

In the workshop, Vispring’s master craftsmen and women use artisan skills to ensure each mattress offers the ultimate support and comfort for a peaceful night’s sleep. Individually pocketed springs are layered in a honeycomb-patterned nesting unit that delivers the optimum level of support throughout the night. The bespoke pocket springs are then covered with specially formulated blends of natural fibres such as silk, mohair, cashmere, bamboo, horsetail, pure British Fleece wool, Real Shetland wool and local Devonshire wool. These fillings guarantee that every Vispring is naturally breathable and provides a clean, fresh, and hygienic sleeping environment.

Hand Nesting The Pocket Springs

Pocket Springs

Inside every Vispring mattress, they install by hand, a single, double, or triple layer of honeycomb-nested calico pocketed springs.
This isn’t a new invention — this formation is well known as being the strongest and most resilient structure in the natural world, so it makes sense to use this grid in bed-building.
To ensure each pocket spring works independently, our experienced technicians carefully enclose every single one into a cotton calico pocket. These are then skilfully hand-nested in a honeycomb pattern, which allows the individual springs to compress and expand in line with your body, supporting you from head to toe as you sleep.

Side Stitching

Unlike mass-produced mattresses, our iconic side-stitching is all done by hand.
It’s an intricate, labour-intensive technique that takes years to master. A major part of our core DNA, this process is integral to the quality and comfort of every Vispring and safeguards the 30-year guarantee that we’ve become famous for.
Up to six rows are deftly sewn with 100% natural twine, which provides the thousands of contact points between the outer shell and honeycomb spring unit. Understandably, the Vispring way takes time, but is driven by the need for durability and quality — it takes one craftsperson up to eight hours to side-stitch a mattress by hand.

Tensions

Vispring makes mattresses in four different tensions. Soft, Medium, Firm and Extra Firm. It’s best to jettison the ideas about how a firm mattress is always best – because this is simply not the case. Tension is, of course, all down to personal choice, but we would always ask you to consider your body weight as the main factor first. Spinal alignment needs to be correct to safeguard against aches and pains from sleeping on the incorrect mattress tension.

SOFT

Up to 11 stone (70kg)

MEDIUM

11-16 stone (70-102kg)

FIRM

16-20 stone (102-127kg)

EXTRA FIRM

Above 20 stone (>127kg)


Materials

The living world almost always provides the best materials — which is why Vispring only use the finest natural fibres to create our unsurpassably comfortable fillings. Whether it’s wool, silk, bamboo, horsetail or cotton, every filament is lovingly hand-laid over the honeycombed pocket springs to provide a soft, breathable, hypo-allergenic, and fully biodegradable foundation for sleeping.

Fleece Wool

Wool

Vispring only use fleece wool, which is produced the traditional way, causing no harm to the sheep. Hard to ignite, wool does not melt or emit fumes and the presence of keratin in the fibres makes it a natural fire retardant. The unpredictability of the climate in the UK impacts on the wool’s intrinsic properties, which tend to soft, springy but extremely strong. Naturally hypo-allergenic and fully breathable, it is ten times more absorbent than synthetic materials – which is critical and guarantees the mattress works in total harmony with your body, by regulation the temperature in your bed.

the first UK bed-maker to be granted the prestigious Woolmark award, they’ve nurtured a long-standing fair-trade policy with the Shetland Wool industry and guarantee that they’ll purchase a substantial amount of each year’s clip.

Cashmere

Cashmere is one of the most expensive, exclusive, and desirable fibres in the world. Hailing from goats farmed in China and its remote outer regions; this long silky filament is eight times warmer than sheep’s wool, but significantly lighter.

Vispring's supplier is a member of the Sustainable Fibre Allowance (SFA), which promotes and oversees sustainability and animal welfare within the cashmere industry. It is collected during the spring moulting season to coincide with the natural shedding of dense winter coats. Sumptuously soft and luxurious, they add it to give our mattresses that very distinctive Vispring feeling.

Bamboo

Bamboo

A highly sustainable crop native to China, Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on earth. Sometimes referred to as “green steel” because of its strength and versatility, this eco-crop is entirely self-generating and doesn’t require any chemical fertilisers or pesticides to flourish.

When processed it’s spun fibres are soft, absorbent and naturally anti-bacterial, making it an ideal component in their signature bed filling.

Silk

Often referred to as the most indulgent fibres known to mankind, silk is also the strongest. Vispring source theirs from China, which is the original gateway to the ancient Silk Road. No longer the preserve of kings, queens, and emperors. It is used in Vispring’s unique filling because of its power to insulate whilst remaining cool to the touch.

Silk will always be synonymous with an air of opulence, so this, along with its technical ability to cleverly adapt to ambient temperatures is the reason it’ll continue to be included in Vispring mattresses. Vispring’s blend includes Tussah and Mulberry silk, which are odourless and hypoallergenic – making it the perfect material for a luxurious mattress top layer.

Mohair

Naturally non-toxic, hypoallergenic and flame resistant, mohair comes from the hair of the Angora goat.

Combined with pure wool, it creates a durable fabric blend with extreme elasticity – perfect for preventing any sagging across the regularly used parts of your Vispring mattress. Comfortable and cooling, with natural insulating properties, we source ours from the Karoo National Park in South Africa, which is a spectacular expanse of semi-desert and grassland.

Quality is paramount to us, so by sourcing from this region, we’re safe in the knowledge that our mattresses contain the finest Mohair in the world.

Horsetail

Horsetail is the longest known natural fibre and has been an integral part of furniture and bed-making for centuries. Bold, strong, and bouncy, it’s the magic ingredient that keeps Vispring mattresses in great shape – even after decades of constant use.

Combed or blended from either the mane or tail which are renowned as being the finest quality. It’s untwisted by hand to preserve its inherently open structure and facilitate the air circulation.

We often say that horsetail adds a million more springs and breathes the life into your mattress every morning as you rise.

Caring for your Vispring Mattress

  • • All Vispring mattresses are upholstered with large amounts of natural fillings, which have been specifically designed to completement the springs and provided many years of comfort.
  • • The fillings will naturally bed down more where the heavier areas of the body have been sleeping and this is normal. Turning will help to even the settlement out across the sleeping surface.
  • • IMPORTANT: Ensure you turn your mattress twice a month for the first 3 months and with the seasons thereafter. It is normal for your mattress to form around your body contours and caring for it in this way will give the fillings a chance to redistribute throughout the mattress and help its recovery and longevity.
