Compare comfort

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.

This model is quite simply based on our Artisan Naturals. In order to keep the majority of natural fillings, we could only compromise on the spring unit. In this case we use an above average spunbond encased premium pocket spring unit over two tiers, coupled with the benefit of having a choice of three spring tensions to suit of Soft, Medium or Firm.

Even though The Artisan Naturals is superbly priced (and of course unbeatable for quality and price ) it did fall outside many peoples budget. This Tailored Pocket model becomes the next best option.

This model comes with a 7 year guarantee.


(2000 Kingsize) The spring unit used in this particular mattress is comprised of a double tier unit. This makes the support relatively forgiving and can be made to suit your individual bodyweights exactly.

These 2000 pocket springs are able to offer all the support you will need. The fillings will be able to offer you all the comfort. By adjusting the tension of the spring used it is easily adaptable to suit the majority of all bodyweights.

Normally, with a standard 2000 pocket sprung unit the overall tension could be rather too supportive particularly for people of a lighter bodyweight. With these available options a good match of support and comfort can easily be obtained.

Upholstery Layers & Comparison

First Layer: 1200 GSM Blended British Fleece Wool and Cotton.
This is similar / same as the primary layer as used on many Vi Spring models where they utilise a blended wool and cotton layer [although their breakdown is never divulged – ours is a 50/50 mix] This is a premium comfort component and also used on our Artisan Luxury and Artisan Bespoke models.

Second Layer: Hairproof Cambric Cover

Third Layer: 1250 gsm: Poly Cotton:
50% Cotton blended with 50% polyester to obtain a good level of comfort and support. Extremely high recovery property.This is the only polyester element (Just 625 gsm) used in the comfort layers.

Fourth Layer: 1500 gsm Pure 100% Mohair:
Superb and premium foundation for the forthcoming comfort layers. Mohair comes secondary to Horsehair as a component that will [almost] never lose its rebound quality. Knowing this assures you that you will never feel the springs poking you in the back.

This mattress is covered in our white woven 100% Viscose with subtle John Ryan design.
This mattress is hand side stitched with 2 rows

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.

Our John Ryan Artisan Bonnell sprung coil bases are 13″ in depth plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making them 15″ in total.

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. 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 9″ 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 width will be 17.5 inches. To find out more such as the sizes and splits that Divans come in please read more here.

It is common sense that if your budget cannot stretch to the likes of The Artisan Naturals then some sort of compromise has to be made. In this case we compromised on the spring unit. Calico encased hand formed springs are phenomenally expensive simply because they are the best type of pocket springs available.

So this Artisan Tailored Pocket 2000 becomes the next best option. Doing a quick price comparison on all the prominent mattress websites will show you quite quickly what you are able to get for this particular price range and equally as quickly you will soon realise it will not be very much.

The quality of upholstery used is the key to this particular model. A total of 3950 GSM is no lightweight mattress. The blended wool and cotton we use as our primary comfort layer is the same / similar to the blended wool and cotton used on many Vi Spring mattresses. Testament to the quality of this one individual component alone. The Mohair layer at 1500 gsm is also a premium product that you would not normally expect to find included in a mattress at this price.
