10 YearGuarantee


Our Artisan Naturals is manufactured to contain a majority amount of premium natural fibre and, it is also the mattress where we comfortably place our reputation when we say – this is probably the very best you can get for this price. In fact we can guarantee that you just cannot find better.

This is priced particularly low in comparison to more established brands in order for us to set the bar in comparing branded mattresses with similar components. If this is in the region of your maximum budget then you will be getting the best mattress you can buy.


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.

Artisan Naturals [Kingsize] 1600 Calico encased Pocket Springs [ 49mm ] [1.28mm ]
Sewn in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit.

Vi-Spring Regal Superb [Kingsize] 1720 Calico encased Pocket Springs [48mm ] [1.28mm ]
Sewn in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit.

We are also able to offer Soft, Medium or Firm springs dependent 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 & Fabrics

This mattress is covered in our white woven 100% Viscose with subtle John Ryan design.

This mattress is hand side stitched with 2 rows.

Upholstery Layers & Comparison

We used 1500 gsm Mohair as the insulating layer to add a robust property to the forthcoming layer. BW&C would have been an additional ‘soft’ layer and an element of support within the upholstery had to be added. The Horsetail in the RS gives this property.

No doubt about it, the Horsetail and Wool component in the Regal Superb mattress is a far superior component than our Poly Cotton blend and it is this aspect that you will have to compromise upon. However, the support and comfort properties can be deemed to be relatively similar.

There is a rarity and complete traceability aspect on Shetland Isle Fleece Wool but I would personally be hard pressed to identify the difference offered in the sleep comfort between the two. There are several Vi Spring mattresses that also utilise Blended British Fleece Wool and Cotton as the final comfort layer.youtueb

How it will feel

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 has been specifically built to enable us to say “you just cannot get a better built mattress for this price”. Support from the premium spring unit can be tweaked softer to firmer to suit your own individual bodyweight or indeed have half firm and half medium as required and at no additional charge.

The internal upholstery is amongst the best you can get for this price range and all this combined ensures that this mattress will be exceptionally hard to beat for build, comfort and more importantly, price.

The exact contents and build of this mattress have been purposefully and excessively detailed in order that you can do precise comparisons with any other pocket sprung mattress that contain similar components. It is worth taking extra note of the quality of the spring unit; there are less than a handful of high end manufacturers who use calico springs in their mattresses, they are not to be confused with mass produced spunbond encased units.

The main points to bear in mind when considering this mattress really is the substantial layers of upholstery and the fact that it is a full double sided mattress. A total of 3950 GSM of premium wadding is well above the norm and if you use this one aspect alone as a lead for comparison it will not take you too long to weedle out the mattresses relying on brand name and not content.


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!
