Why do you use Tufts?
The tufts in a mattress help ensure the natural fillings inside your mattress stay in place during use. Just as feather duvets often have pockets to keep the even distribution of fillings, our tufts act a little bit like pockets too.
Can I put the Mattress on a Bed Frame?

What is the best Mattress for a Bad back?
There is a common misconception that if you have a bad back you need a firm mattress but this is totally wrong information! The key to a comfortable night’s sleep is a mattress that is supportive so that the spine can align in a neutral position while you sleep, but you also need a mattress that is soft enough to contour to the shape of your body.
How do I reduce body impressions?
We recommend following our rotating and turning instructions which you will find in your Mattress Care Guide, to minimise body impressions. As most people sleep in the same position every night, body impressions are a normal feature of handmade mattresses. You may find fillings settle or dip in the area where you sleep which can leave a ridge in the centre of the mattress. Just like the impressions that form on the insole of leather shoes, this is simply your mattress “getting to know you”.
Is it okay to Fold or Roll my Mattress?
No, Folding or Rolling your Mattress will potentially damage the Mattress and will invalidate your Warranty.
