Vegan Mattresses: Foam vs Pocket Sprung

There’s no denying that the popularity of Natural Fibre mattresses has reached new heights, especially as more and more people are choosing to make their bedrooms more vegan friendly

Not only can Natural Plant Fibres continually replenish themselves over time, which greatly benefits the environment, they are also more breathable and responsive then any synthetic man-made alternatives.  

Of course, all of our Luxury Mattresses that use href=”https://johnryanbydesign.co.uk/product-category/mattresses/pocket-sprung-natural-fibre/”>Natural Fibres are Pocket Sprung Mattresses, which utilise individually wrapped pocket springs that can work independently to effectively absorb, react and adjust themselves to the pressure the shape of your body makes. Some people however, have been opting for foam mattresses as their go-to vegan sleep surface option. 

We wanted to quickly explore why, when it comes to foam mattresses vs Pocket Sprung mattresses, it will always be the pocket springs that come out on top…

The problems with foam

If you’re considering choosing foam for your Vegan mattress choice, there are a few issues we wanted to highlight for you first, so that you can make the most informed decision. 

Firstly, it’s important to keep in mind that foam mattresses can get incredibly hot. This is because they actively retain heat, meaning your bed can soon become a furnace in the warmer months when temperatures tend to reach scorching highs.

Secondly, the vast majority of foam mattresses are one-sided only. Leaving you unable to turn the mattress to even out any wear. This means you’ll have effectively bought a mattress that has half the lifespan of a traditional two-sided mattress.

Limiting your choice of a vegan href=”https://johnryanbydesign.co.uk/understanding-beds/3-things-you-need-to-find-the-right-mattress/” class=”” >mattress to foam only, will mean you’ll likely struggle to find a mattress that can really cater to your needs, especially if you happen to be a hot sleeper. Relying on purely man-made, synthetic foams in your mattress when there’s a mix of wonderful plant fibres out there to choose from could be a mistake. 

The benefits of a vegan friendly pocket-sprung mattress

Our resilient and flexible pocket sprung mattresses are meticulously designed and tailored to meet your exact sleep requirements. Unlike foam mattresses, they are ideal for hot sleepers because they can effectively wick away moisture from your body. The fantastic fibres inside are able to regulate your temperature far better than any synthetic foam or fabric can. Working constantly to keep you cool, calm and relaxed.

Every springs/” class=”” >pocket spring is designed to give you much more advanced support, thanks to each one being wrapped and separated by a breathable pocket of material. They can effectively absorb every movement your body makes, reacting and adjusting themselves as your bodyweight is effortlessly distributed across the entire mattress. If you sleep with a partner, they will also reduce any transference of movement between you. Giving both of you a more isolated and tailored feeling of support. 

We’ve packed our brand new vegan mattress, The Artisan Latex, with 1500 spun bond pocket springs, all of which can work to provide you with a cooling, comforting and super supportive sleep experience. The mattress is the only 100% plant-based mattress in our range, and the first fully natural plant-based vegan mattress in the UK. If you’re a vegan, this mattress is the perfect sleep solution for you. Allowing you to drift off into a dreamy and luxurious sleep.
