Taking a look at the process reveals the shear complexity behind Vispring’s production, highlighting why they are considered to be so exceptional. Gathering all the finest materials together in one place, does not automatically mean you’ll create the best of anything. A “Michelin Star” chef, not only needs years of training, but also excellent recipes to create fabulous servings of delicious food, equally Vispring similarly require, a large helping of expertise a dash of really skilled craftsmanship, mixed in with a long history of generational techniques that have been honed to perfection, before they can serve up the perfect bed. The images shown here, depict the hands on approach that is required to manually put together such a high quality, pocket spring mattress. Working with natural fibers will always test the skills of an individual.
Another area that requires serious skills, is having the ability to hand stitch along the mattress sides, this can be up to six rows per mattress. It’s a job that can absorb hours of time, absolute precision is required to ensure the edges are firm, neat and aligned, making this a key critical point. At this point the springs have been pocketed and aligned, with multiple layers of fillings, such as wool, bamboo, silk etc. these are now in place, top and bottom, the outer cover has been cut and sewn, fitted with handles, comfort layers and vents. All of this means, that even the smallest error, could ruin the mattress. Side stitching, when done well, provides excellent edge to edge surface for sleeping on, which if you consider a standard double bed is 135cm wide x 190cm long, that only gives a couple sharing 67.5cm each, that's less room than a standard 90cm single bed.
Strong foundations are a core element to supporting your Vispring mattress and is an important part of the recipe, as the right marriage between mattress and base will optimise the overall performance of the set.
Luckily Vispring mattress are already married off with the prefect partners, meaning the hard work, in the main, has already been done. However these are bespoke mattresses also offer varying tensions and not every individual will be happy with these partners, but don’t worry can opt for alternative bases or use bedstead frames instead. Either way the bed experts at Clarkes will help you understand the options, enabling you to make an informed decision to find the perfect partner for your mattress. A good coupling, of base and mattress creates a unit that will work in harmony together, this collaboration will maximise comfort, performance and lifespan.
Vispring bases contain similar elements to the mattress, i.e. pocket springs, natural fillings, which are all wrapped up in luxury materials. Supported by solid wood frames, using premium seasoned to avoid movement over long periods of time.
Not all mattresses are suitable bedstead frames and unfortunately not all bedsteads are capable of hosting Vispring mattresses. Deciding factors are mainly down to strength and type of support, clearly the weight of any good quality pocket spring mattress is likely to substantially more than foam or open coil spring mattresses. This means that if the bedstead is not built from strong materials it may fail to support the combined weight of the mattress and users at the same time.
The support rails or slats also need to be able to support the weight and in particular the slats should be less than 8cm apart and preferably these should also be shaped (sprung) slightly curved to offer some movement to aid comfort. Now you have checked to key element and hopefully your prized bedstead ticks all the strength and stress tests. You are now ready to consider one of the fabulous bedstead mattresses from Vispring’s specially developed collection. Like the divan set collection you will find the same quality hand nested pocket springs and natural fillings, all of which have been carefully adapted to preform equal as well on your bedstead. Other accessories to consider are base protection cover pads, these help reduce the risk of the bedstead damaging the mattress cover and they improve weight distribution and support.
