Hastens is the BEST Mattress in the world!

We spend about one-third of our life either sleeping. Or attempting to do so!

If you live, say, 75 years, that’s 25 years asleep, or 9,125 days!

After sleeping on a subpar mattress for the past decade, I recently decided to make an upgrade. Why? My old queen mattress was very basic, and my thirtey-something-year-old body didn’t mind sleeping on it. Ten years later my fortey something body started telling me something was very wrong with my mattress.  I was  waking up sore and not well-rested. We knew we wanted to upgrade for our health’s sake.

 

 

In all of my research,   this company came up again and again,  as the BEST! Hästens has a rich history running back through six generations and the journey to where they are now is one filled with passion, skill and the pursuit of making the best handcrafted beds in the world. The bond that ties all of Hästens together is their Spirit of Excellence, a way of working and thinking that brings you the best sleep you’ll ever have.

Hästens was born in Sweden in 1852 and from the day they made their first bed, natural materials have always played a fundamental role. In 1852 cotton, horsetail hair, wool and flax were superior to other materials and, surprisingly, even today… that remains the case. And, then as it is now, the best way to craft using these materials is by hand. This tradition of hand craftsmanship gives their bed makers a deeply rooted understanding and mastery of both their art, and the natural materials that are so crucial to its consolidation.

It is one of the most expensive mattresses  I have come across. But there is good reason for the high cost.

 

NO SHORTCUTS. NO ‘GOOD ENOUGHS’.
HAND-TEASED

Layer upon layer of genuine horsetail hair, cotton and wool, in a rigorously calculated composition, is placed by hand and distributed evenly. The horsetail hair is carefully hand-teased, an ancient artisanal task, to achieve a ventilating structure with superior humidity absorption. This is just one of the crafts we use that takes skill, experience and time.

Their craftsmen know with the slightest touch whether the perfect balance has been reached. If not, they begin again. There’s no compromise where your comfort is concerned. Matressess  come with a 25 year guarantee!
