Recently, we took a trip to the where the mattresses come to life from start to finish at the Hypnos factory in Prince Risborough, Buckinghamshire. From the meticulous hand work to the highest-quality fabrics and natural fillings used in every one of our Hypnos mattresses, here’s how our bespoke range has been specially made just for you.
The 6 steps to mattress perfection:
1. All fabrics, lids and mattress borders are hand-measured and the Hypnos label is hand-stitched on to the fabric.
2. Air vents are hand-pressed and the flag-stitched handles are then attached to the borders.
3. The chosen pocket spring system is attached to a frame to keep its shape and the fillings are collected.
4. Next, the borders are hand-side stitched into a second row of springs for extra support.
5. After the fillings have been layered on in order, the lid is tagged on and then securely tape-edged.
6. The mattress is expertly hand-tufted to keep all the fillings in place before it is inspected, double-bagged and complete.
What is a Hypnos pocket-sprung mattress?
Made from pocket springs that have a built-in memory and active turns, these mattresses have been uniquely designed to recognise your body’s shape and weight distribution to provide comfort and support where you need it.
The movement of each spring allows the mattress to mould to your body ensuring the natural alignment of your spine and best support for your back. What’s more, there is no ‘roll-together’ between yourself and your partner, because the springs focus on individual comfort levels.

Things to remember when choosing your mattress
- It’s all about personal preference and how much support you need.
- Spring count isn’t everything. The amount of springs doesn’t necessarily mean you will have a better mattress.
- What is important is the fillings, the base and how many active turns a spring has – the more turns a spring has, the greater ability it has to sense the comfort and support requirements you need.
- The most important thing is having the most comfortable night’s sleep.
