How are Hästens mattresses made?
Hästens is renowned for producing meticulously handcrafted, superior-quality mattresses.
Each mattress is carefully constructed by layering high-quality materials, which are then compressed and secured together with hand-sewn cords, eliminating the need for glue.
These layers, along with the covers, are assembled by hand for precision and durability. 🪡
The pocket springs are fastened securely with robust metal hogties.
This attention to detail extends to the mattress's side seams, which run through the layers, bolstering the structure and stability of the mattress.
A distinctive feature of Hästens mattresses is the grid pattern on the cover.
This not only adds to the aesthetic appeal but also serves as a guide for the artisans during the assembly and stitching process.
