Understanding Origin's products and company logistics
Now that we know a bit more about the brand, let's take a look at what goes into their products.
Which product would you consider as your flagship or star product, and why?
"We have two flagship products that cater to different customer needs:
- Origin Hybrid Mattress: The Origin Hybrid Mattress offers exceptional quality at an affordable price. Customers are pleasantly surprised by its superior construction and the improvement in their sleep quality. Many customers who have previously owned expensive mattresses find our product to be equally impressive, and some even express disbelief at its value.
- Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress: For customers who view sleep as an investment or have a slightly higher budget, the Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress is the ideal choice. It offers enhanced pressure relief and a noticeable cooling effect.
Many customers who initially purchase our Hybrid Mattress eventually upgrade to the Hybrid Pro after a few years."
How do you ensure the quality, safety, and durability of your sleep products?
"We collaborate with sleep professionals to guarantee that our mattresses adhere to the most up-to-date scientific criteria for achieving a good night's sleep. This encompasses aspects such as pressure relief, support, firmness, and other important factors.
Additionally, we partner with numerous reputable third-party organisations across the globe to ensure that our products meet the strictest safety and quality standards.
For instance, our foam undergoes rigorous testing and holds the CertiPUR-US® certification, highlighting its superior quality. Furthermore, we proudly maintain the OEKO-TEX® certification, signifying our commitment to producing products that are free from harmful substances."
Can you describe the materials used in your top products, and explain how they enhance sleep quality?
"The choice of materials utilised depends on the specific products being created.
Origin Hybrid Mattress
The Origin Hybrid Mattress was specifically designed to provide exceptional sleep at a much lower cost.
Our dedicated team of sleep engineers conducted extensive testing in our Sleep Lab, experimenting with over a thousand different designs and materials. The goal was to create a high-quality sleep experience that is within everyone's budget.
The impressive result is a six-layer hybrid mattress that delivers the same level of sleep quality as mattresses that are three times its price.
- The first layer, SnowTencel Fibre, offers a hypoallergenic and luxuriously soft surface. It also provides a cooling effect, making it feel as though you are resting under the gentle breeze from an air conditioner.
- The second layer, Origin HexaGrid, is crafted from our exclusive blend of polymers and cooling gels. This unique combination ensures unparalleled comfort and relief from pressure points.
- The third layer, IceCool Foam, is composed of 100% natural latex infused with a cooling gel. This layer provides gentle cushioning and buoyant support, which is particularly beneficial for those who suffer from back and joint pain.
- The fourth layer, Bamboo-Infused Wool, is a proprietary blend of responsibly-sourced bamboo wool and other carefully selected materials. Each component is hand-picked to enhance sleep comfort, and the material is micro-threaded to increase airflow and breathability.
- The fifth layer, D-2 Edge Support, is made of high-quality foam that is twice as dense as regular foam. This layer expands the comfort area of the mattress and makes getting in and out of bed easier.
- The sixth layer consists of ErgoCoil Steel Springs, the highest quality individually pocketed springs. These springs quickly adapt to your sleep movements and body shape, providing pressureless support, excellent responsiveness, and efficient air circulation for a cool sleep.
With its premium design and advanced features, the Origin Hybrid Mattress offers luxurious sleep without the hefty price tag.
Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress
The Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress is our most advanced, luxurious, and cooling mattress to date. With 8 thoughtfully crafted layers using premium materials, this mattress ensures the deepest and most comfortable sleep experience.
We believe that superior sleep requires superior materials, which is why our Hybrid Pro mattress combines only those materials that have been scientifically proven to enhance sleep quality.
- The first layer, PolarSilk Tencel, features a lavish fabric derived from sustainably-sourced wood pulp. It boasts a soft and silky texture that feels incredibly soothing against your skin, while also providing a remarkably cool sensation.
- The second layer, Graphite Crystal Latex, made by infusing 100% natural latex with tiny graphite crystals, effectively dissipates heat and maintains an optimal sleeping temperature. Say goodbye to uncomfortable nights spent tossing and turning due to overheating.
- The third layer, HexaGrid Plus, utilises our own proprietary blend of polymers and cooling gels. This layer is specifically designed to offer ultimate comfort and relieve pressure points. You'll experience unmatched support and a truly restful sleep.
- The fourth layer, Bamboo-Infused Wool, consists of carefully selected organic materials combined in our exclusive wool blend. Its micro-threading enhances airflow and breathability, contributing to a more comfortable sleep environment.
- The fifth layer, ErgoCoil Steel MicroSprings, is crafted from premium-quality, high-tensile steel, each micro-spring is individually encased in a soft, breathable fabric pocket. This hyper-responsive layer effortlessly adjusts to your every movement, providing optimal support.
- The sixth layer, Cooling Comfort Foam, is an open-cell foam infused with cooling gel particles that assist in the transfer of heat away from the body. Additionally, it offers exceptional support and minimises motion disturbance to ensure a peaceful slumber.
- The seventh layer, Aerospace-Grade Titanium Springs, is inspired by the titanium used in the aerospace industry; this layer features springs coiled at different tensions. Strategically placed to support your head, shoulders, back, and legs, they deliver superior comfort. These titanium springs are not only strong and durable but also lightweight.

Customers can experience ultimate comfort and restful sleep with the Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress. Created using advanced materials and expert craftsmanship, it is guaranteed to provide the highest level of luxury and support."

A restful night's sleep and waking up without body aches can greatly enhance your overall productivity and quality of life.

How do you come up with new products and what are the most essential steps in the development process?
"We work closely with renowned sleep experts and product designers to create designs that go through a rigorous feedback process involving sleep experts, athletes, and customers. We value their input and continuously improve our products based on their feedback.
To ensure that every new product surpasses its predecessor in terms of important performance metrics, we conduct extensive tests throughout the development process.
A vital element of our approach is the prompt solicitation of feedback and the swift implementation of necessary actions based on that feedback."

How do you handle customer feedback and have there been any significant improvements based on it?
"In order to enhance our products, we conduct a monthly review of customer feedback while incorporating suggestions from our athletes, sleep experts, and product design team.
We consistently strive for product innovation and make minor adjustments based on customer input.
Furthermore, we acknowledge that some customers have reported receiving orders without prior notification. We are actively working on improving this issue and have communicated this feedback to our delivery partners to ensure that their drivers are aware of our standard operating procedure for deliveries.
We have also received feedback regarding extended delivery times despite the proximity of our warehouse and delivery partner to the customer's location. While we are aware of this issue, we have informed customers that we are the sole customer of our delivery partners and unique processing requirements may affect delivery speed.
However, for those customers seeking expedited delivery, we will liaise with our delivery partners to determine if they can provide a fixed timeline.
All delivery-related feedback is handled internally and will be shared with our warehouse and delivery partners for discussion on how to improve this aspect and prevent similar inquiries in the future."
Community, eco-friendliness, and sustainability
Sustainability in today's world cannot be ignored, so we asked Origin about this, too.
How do you prioritise sustainability or eco-friendly practices in your production process?
"At Origin, we strongly uphold our responsibility to preserve this magnificent planet for future generations. As a result, we are dedicated to utilising our technology and expertise to contribute to a greener future.
We understand that this journey will not be without challenges and will require both effort and time.
However, we are determined to persist until every possible action has been taken. We will continuously evaluate and refine our operational procedures until we can confidently state that no further improvements are needed.
Our mission is to combat climate change not only in the UK but also globally.
We aim to achieve this by incorporating natural materials into our products, engaging in tree-planting initiatives, eliminating waste sent to landfills, and pursuing various other initiatives.
Overall, our commitment lies in making a positive impact on the environment through the implementation of sustainable practices."
Do you measure CO2 emissions linked to your operations, and what initiatives are in place to mitigate environmental impact?
"In line with our commitment to sustainability, our research team consistently strives to discover more eco-friendly materials that we can incorporate into our products.
Our mattress components, including memory foam, springs, and latex, have been partially infused with biodegradable materials.
To ensure our products' safety and environmental responsibility, we have undergone independent testing in third-party laboratories and received certifications from OEKO-TEX® and CertiPUR-US®.
These certifications confirm that our products do not contain harmful substances such as mercury, lead, heavy metals, ozone depleters, formaldehyde, VOCs, and phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
In addition to utilising environmentally responsible materials, we are committed to minimising waste, combating deforestation through tree-planting initiatives, and improving our manufacturing processes.
As a result of our ongoing efforts, we have made incremental refinements to our manufacturing practices to reduce the emission of harmful substances like CO2.
Our dedication to sustainability has been recognised with numerous awards in the field, but our journey towards a greener future is far from over."
