1476Calico Pocket Springs
100%Natural Fibre
10 YearGuarantee


This is one of the best completely 100% natural component arrangements you can possibly get. Substantially well upholstered (4600 GSM) utilising Horsehair and Wool in a sandwich layout topped off with a blended wool and cotton primary layer.

The nearest comparable model we can find to this is the Vi-Spring Devonshire in terms of comfort. The luxury however includes horse hair and horse tail, which the Devonshire does not, making it a considerably higher specification mattress. The horse hair and horse tail layers provide support for the softer wool layers to prevent excess settlement.


1476 (Kingsize) six turn, premium nested and hand formed pocket springs . These are individually sewn, calico encased, strung together and can be easily compared to Vi-Spring, Savoir Beds and less than a handful of other top end manufacturers who use calico encased pocket springs in their top end mattresses.

Do not confuse these springs with mass produced polypropylene encased pocket springs. These are completely and utterly worlds apart and a different breed altogether. Try a bounce around on any Vi Spring / Savoir mattress to see how forgiving they actually are.

Artisan Luxury: [Kingsize] 1476 (1 tier) Calico encased Pocket Springs [ 51mm ] [1.42mm ] Sewn in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit.

Vi-Spring Devonshire: [Kingsize] 1326 (1 tier) Calico encased Pocket Springs [54mm ] [1.52mm ] Sewn in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit.

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

Two 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

You can see that we have used an additional 2000 GSM of upholstery within our mattress. This mix of Horsehair and wool will give an extra edge of comforting support within the upholstery.

There isn’t much difference in feel between Horsetail and Horsehair. Horsetail has a bigger and extended crimp which makes it an ideal support layer with a phenomenal recovery property. Horsetail is also used above Horsehair on all premium built mattresses (see The Vi Spring Signatory for evidence of this) Wool has no support qualities at all and is used entirely for the comfort.

This additional layer of wool acts as a cushion between the two horsehair layers so the compression on the preceding layer of horsetail is separate to the compression on the forthcoming layer of horsehair.

Horsehair: This Horsehair layer has shorter and finer fibres acting as millions of tiny springs. The loft of this layer is important as a sub primary comfort layer. It will take a considerable number of years for this product to lose its recovery properties.

Blended Wool and Cottton: A 50% Cotton and 50% Wool mix of a substantial overall weight providing the final layer of comfort. As with the Artisan Bespoke this is a similar product as used by Vi Spring as the final comfort layer on many of their mattresses.

How it will feel

This is the softest feel of our Artisan mattress range.

We can also accommodate people of differing bodyweights. In this instance we can have your mattress made with Dual Tension springs e.g: Half the mattress with soft tension springs and half the mattress with medium tension springs. Likewise, Half Medium and Half Firm.

We are also able to offer Soft, Medium or Firm springs dependent on your weight requirements.

BodyweightSpring tension
Upto 8 Stone / 50kgSoft
8-16 Stone / 50-101kgMedium
16 Stone / 101kg UpwardsFirm


This is a perfect combination of support and comfort as well as being a phenomenal [and unbeatable] mattress for the price.

Comfort level is superb, being able to adjust accordingly with weight applied. This means that for people with back problems there is nothing in the mattress that can exacerbate pressure points. This is certainly not a springy mattress.

Even though the individualised components can be considered ‘Soft’, the overall composition and compression after tufting means that there is very little room for further movement [apart from the springs ] and so gives the mattress an overall medium tension.


Our team will be able to guide you to the right product for you and your budget. We grade the products in our warehouse and the grading is decided based on the condition of the product upon return. Most mattresses are Grade B or C. At this stage we cannot give you the history of each product or the very specifics of where any marks may be located so, if this is important for you to know then a clearance bed may not be for you and you can choose your mattress in the normal way. We do however guarantee that the condition will be no worse that described below and in most cases is actually better!
