The firmness of the mattress you desire is determined by a few factors. Your weight and height, and the mattress of your choice. The upholstery layers are the very top comfort layers and give different degrees of firmness alongside the spring unit which should be chosen based on your weight.
The Artisan 1500 has a medium feel in the top upholstery layer giving both support and comfort from the Comfort layers. This model uses a High-End Cashmere insulator layer, 1200GSM, between the Pocket Spring unit and the Comfort Layers for that true luxury feel.
The use of Rebound Poly-Cotton (RPC) and polyester provides this model with a medium feel with a huge amount of upholstery for both comfort and support. This combination contributes greatly towards the overall feel and longevity of the mattress providing loft & resilience.
The final layer of 500 gsm Wool is a premium product used to boost the overall quality of this mattress. More weight could have been gained by using polyester but this usage would deteriorate the overall value. Meaning that the final Comfort Layer of this mattress is 100% Wool for both breathability and softness.
The springs are the component which enabled us to build to a specific price point. Same spring material as used in the Calico units – just the housing is different to keep the Artisan 1500 at this competitive price point. They are available in 3 different spring tensions depending on your body weight and height.
The upholstery quantity and quality is among the best you can get for this budget. There is a massive combined upholstery weight of 4300 GSM of which 53% are Natural Fibres.
Two rows genuine Hand Side Stitching & Hand Tufted.
The Woven mattress cover is completely Chemical-Free using a Natural plant-based fire retardancy protection.

Our John Ryan Artisan Pocket Spring bases are 12″ in depth plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making them 14″ in total.
Spring edging can be looked upon as a mini mattress between the main mattress and the base. It offers progressive support that dampens the strain of weight from the user. This significantly improves the overall comfort level of a mattress. This difference in comfort is often described as ‘Softer’ which is quite an incorrect term to use.
The drawers on the Artisan bases are 32″ wide, 20″ deep and 7″ high.
You can have 2 or 4 drawer options. If using bedside tables you may want to have 2 full size and 2 continental drawers so the drawers next to the bedside tables can be opened fully.
Continental drawers will have the same depth and height as the normal, but the width will be 17.5 inches. To find out more such as the sizes and splits that Divans come in please read more here.
This is the model we put our name and reputation to – Meaning if this is the limit to your budget this certainly is “The best mattress you can buy for your money!”
The Artisan 1500 has been specifically built to emulate the feel of The Artisan Naturals and priced to achieve a stunning mattress at an affordable price. We have used as best we can a similar range of components to The Naturals in order to garner the closest match in terms of support and comfort levels. For example; The insulating layer (1200 gsm Cashmere) is the same weight and similar in overall quality and feel to the Mohair as used in The Naturals – this is the most expensive component in this mattress – but critical to achieve the correct support and comfort properties.
The mattress cover is completely Chemical-Free using a Natural plant-based fire retardancy protection.
