We know that Hypnos divan beds and pocket sprung mattresses are luxury beds and made to the highest standards with a large amount of tlc (tender loving care). The pocket sprung mattress fillings are of only the highest quality and there are lots of them. So how is the mattress filling held in place?

The finishing touches.

Once the pocket springs are nested into shape, a rigid bar is clipped around the perimeter to hold the pocket springs together and maintain the mattress’s shape. Hypnos luxury beds then have generous layers of fillings placed over the spring unit. In some cases these can be in excess of 12” of fillings. The fillings are then covered with a cover, called a tick, which is generally high quality damask.

Hypnos Mattress HandleHand Side Stitching

So to the finishing touches. Hypnos mattresses are hand side stitched. This is a process whereby a highly trained craftsman inserts a long upholstery needle with high tensile twine through the mattress border into the springs and the layers of fillings. This process ensures the fillings and pocket springs remain in place and the mattress border is firm and supportive. This firms up the edge of the mattress and helps to prevent it from sagging. The overall benefit is increased sleeping surface as the mattress is truly edge to edge. The Orthos Latex and Orthos Cashmere are just 2 examples of mattresses with 3 rows of side stitching.


Once the mattresses are side stitched, the second finishing touch starts, the hand tufting. The pocket sprung mattress is placed in a press and compressed. A long tufting needle with twine is inserted through the mattress. On each end of the twine a tuft of wool or felt is attached. This makes sure that all the fillings stay in place and improves the life of your mattress. It also enables the craftsmen to achieve the exact level of firmness required in the mattress.


Heavy duty fabric handles are flag stitched to the mattress to aid rotation and turning.


The air vents in the border of the mattress help to keep the interior ventilated. Depressing the mattress helps expel old air and any potential stale odours. Like the handles, the vents are fitted to all 4 sides of the mattress to provide the best possible airflow, without affecting the performance of the mattress.
