The closest comparable model we can find to this Artisan Bespoke 002 is The Vi Spring Tiara Superb. There are of course a few minor differences between the two. For example in the AB-002 there is an additional layer of Bamboo, we utilise pure horsetail rather than blending it with wool etc. but essentially the overall tension, spring quality, build and feel of this particular mattress can rightly be deemed as relatively similar. It is also these models that utilise a double tier spring unit that accentuate the overall support and comfort qualities of this particular model.


Despite some very misleading descriptions on the internet, there aren’t many manufactures who utilise actual Calico Pocket Springs in their mattresses. The most prominent manufacturers whom we know of are of course Vi Spring and Savoir Beds.

We are also able to offer Soft, Medium or Firm spring tensions dependant on your weight requirements.

We also zone the perimeter sides (2 rows) of the mattress with a slightly firmer spring to aid the edge support. This stabilises the mattress when sitting on the edge.

Detailing and Fabrics

Three rows of Genuine hand side stitching. 8 padded turning handles on the KS. The mattress has been traditionally hand tufted with woollen tufts.
This mattress is covered in our white woven 100% Viscose with subtle John Ryan design.

Upholstery Layers & Comparison

The combined upholstery weight by GSM [Grams per Square Metre] in a mattress is a good indicator of who is giving you more filling for your money. Of course the fillings have to be similar by quality so once you know the overall weight you then have to break that down further by component.
