Hand tufting is the process which secures all the fillings and the spring unit together through the depth of the mattress. Once the body of the mattress has been assembled the mattress is put into the mattress press. Long tufting needles are then driven through the mattress by hand, inserting cotton popins, which are then secured either side with wool felt tufts.
Tufting is the best method of ensuring the spring units and mattress layers remain in position and is necessary to prolong the durability of the mattress.Hand Teasing
This is labour intensive process and is a method of separating the fibres of the natural fillings used in the layers of the mattress by hand. It is necessary to tease the natural fibres of our Devon wool and silk when used carefully by hand, working through the strands to remove any impurities in order to achieve an even layer of soft and natural aeriated filling.Internally hand stitched mattresses
All of our mattresses are internally hand stitched by our craftsmen with natural hemp. This time consuming hand stitching secures the edge of the mattress to the fillings and avoids the use of any spray adhesives or glues. The mattress is then hand tufted.
