VISPRING SINCE 1901
At the turn of the 20th century, an English engineer called James Marshall offered his wife the most precious gift of all - a perfect night's sleep.
The inventor of the pocket spring in 1901, Vispring has been the leading specialist in the technology ever since. Producing all our own springs from the best Vanadium steel, we fit each mattress and divan with a unique selection to offer a broad range of sleeping options. You may then specify your preferred spring tension to ensure a perfect bed. We use nothing but the finest natural fibres, expertly selected and blended for the ultimate in comfort and support. Once they have been hand-teased and laid over the springs, each mattress is side-stitched by hand for long-lasting strength. Finished with exquisite fabrics and embroidered with the Vispring name, it bears testimony to an expertise that has never been equaled.
Profoundly attached to the values of excellence, comfort, and craftsmanship, Vispring embodies an elegance as British as afternoon tea.
Vispring has always epitomized an uniquely British brand of distinction. Our beds couple the technical process that launched the industrial revolution with a personalized approach worthy of the finest bespoke tailoring. Beautifully and traditionally crafted, Vispring mattresses are in step with the accelerated rhythms of modern life while reflecting the heritage and history of the British countryside. In the golden age of the ocean liner, they were to be found in the first class cabins of such legendary vessels as the Queen Mary and the Titanic. Fabled hotels like the Savoy and the Park Lane have prided themselves on the luxury of their Vispring beds. Today, they remain the international standard for comfort and sophistication. We were proud to be awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in 2012 - testimony to our global renown. As an active supporter of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales's Campaign for Wool, we work with the British Wool Marketing Board to ensure a fair price is paid to producers, thus helping to preserve the UK wool industry for future generations. Handmade in Devon, our beds are at home the world over, embodying an unmistakable elegance that is theirs alone.
A bespoke bed by Vispring is a guarantee of supreme luxury and untroubled sleep. For over a century, we have been refining the subtle art of pairing the perfect combination of spring size, tension, and resilience with the finest materials nature has to offer.
A gift to the woman he loved, Marshall's invention was a radical innovation. By pioneering the use of pocket springs, the Vispring mattress redefined bed design, with each individually pocketed spring offering independent cushioning and support to usher in unparalleled levels of comfort. That recipe is as unique today as it was then. At our factory in Plymouth - in the South West of England - our mattresses and divans are still crafted by hand to order., The same way that they always have been.
WOOL Britain’s climate produces wool that is uniquely soft, springy, and strong. Vispring is the only bed maker to use 100% Platinum Certified British fleece wool, widely regarded as the best in the world. Hypo-allergenic, breathable and ten times more absorbent than synthetic materials, it ensures long-lasting comfort.
BAMBOO Originally indigenous to northern China, bamboo is omnipresent in architecture, industry, cookery, and landscapes throughout Asia. Vispring sources its bamboo fiber in China. An eminently sustainable resource, it is also soft and exceptionally absorbent -wicking away moisture to ensure that you sleep comfortably and wake fully refreshed.
COTTON Cotton has been farmed since prehistoric times. The Turkish long-fiber cotton used by Vispring is incredibly soft and durable, with an unparalleled sheen. It is also uniquely absorbent and naturally breathable - wicking away moisture to preserve your comfort throughout the night.
VICUÑA Vicuña wool is one of the most sought after and luxurious textiles in the world. It is absorbent, has excellent insulating properties and - being free of lanolin - is also hypoallergenic. Vispring selects these long, lustrous fibers for their warmth, their beauty, and their delicious softness.
MOHAIR One of the oldest textile fibers in use today, mohair is a luxurious material made from the hair of the Angora goat. Durable, resilient and exquisitely soft, it is also an excellent natural insulator; warm in winter, its moisture wicking properties keep it deliciously cool in summer to guarantee year-round comfort.
CASHMERE Eight times warmer than sheep’s wool yet significantly lighter, cashmere is produced from the soft under-fleece of the Cashmere goat. Absorbent, resilient and exquisitely smooth, its long, silky fibers have excellent insulating properties. It contributes its unique softness and sumptuous feel to our finest mattresses.
SILK The strongest natural fiber known to man, silk has been highly prized since ancient times. Rare, refined and incredibly soft, it offers a naturally luxurious bedtime experience, adapting to ambient temperature to provide coolness in summer, warmth in winter and distinctive smoothness all year round.
HORSEHAIR The longest natural fiber, horsehair from the animal's mane of tail has been an essential element of upholstery and bed making for generations. Adding horsetail to a mattress is like giving it two million extra springs: the fiber bounces back after compression to restore your mattress’s shape after a restful night’s sleep.
