The Artisan Sublime features Organic Plant fibres to create the ultimate combination layers of Natural fibres in a mattress. We have carefully created this mattress to provide the ultimate in breathable natural layers topped off with a medium soft comfort layer. Allowing you to sink ever so slightly further into the soft Bamboo comfort layers before being supported by a twin spring set. The Coir & Organic flax acts as a highly breathable insulating layer between the spring units. We are the first retailer to feature this Organic layer in a mattress.

This mattress has a 15 year guarantee.


Only a handful of Luxury Mattress manufacturers use Vanadium coated Calico encased pocket springs and we are one of them.

John Ryan-Artisan Sublime [King] 2508 (2 tiers) Calico encased Pocket Springs [ 56mm ] [1.40mm ] Sewn in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit which are then insulated with Coir & Organic Flax (both natural plant fibres).

We are able to offer this model is 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.

Upholstery Layers & Comparison

We’ve written about how effectively Natural plant fibres are in high-end mattress construction as they are not only incredibly durable but light weight. The Artisan Sublime is the first in our range to use these Natural fibres.

The insulator layer is made up of 2200gsm of Coir & Organic Plant Flax. Which acts as a resilient cushioning layer beteen the spring unit and the 3200gsm of additional luxury natural fibres above.

The twin layer of vanadium coated calico pocket springs provides a far more progressive support unit than a single tier can. Giving more flexibility to the sleep support unit.

A layer of 1200gsm horse hair provides additional rebound before the incredibly soft and high wicking 1200gsm of Alpaca fibre provides a snug feel to the comfort layer. This is then topped off with ultra soft high wicking 800gsm Natural Bamboo fibre giving that exquisite medium soft feel in the top layer. Mimicking that of a luxury topper without the need for additional layers.

Coir & Organic Flax

This is the first mattress in our range to use Organic Plant Flax as a highly breathable and supportive insulator layer along with coconut fibre. This means that both the spring unit and upholstery layers have free movement of air making it completely breathable. Flax is also incredibly durable offering an alternative to other Natural insulators. By drying and stripping the flax leaves a natural tough fibre can be created that’s light and strong.

How it will feel

This is a medium feel progressive mattress with a soft-medium comfort layer.

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.

Our John Ryan Pocket Sprung Edge Artisan bases are 13″ in depth plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making them 15″ in total. This is a ‘true edge’ base.

If drawers are added then the base height will be 13″ plus 2″ for Shepherd castors making 15″ in total.

Spring edging can be looked upon as a mini mattress between the main mattress and the base. It offers a progressive support that dampens the strain of weight from the user. This significantly improves the overall comfort level of a mattress.

The drawers on the Artisan bases are 32″ wide, 20″ deep and 9″ high. To find out more such as the sizes and splits that Divans come in please read more here.
