About Vispring: All Vispring mattresses are handmade to order in the company’s factory in Devon. It’s an uncompromising approach, but because sleep is such a deeply personal part of life, Vispring believes it’s the only way to guarantee that every bed is exquisitely comfortable and fits its owner like a glove; ensuring they can reap all the benefits of a full and healthy life. Founded in 1901, Vispring now exports across the globe. Renowned as the first bed maker to produce an interior sprung mattress using a system of individually pocketed springs, it changed the way beds are made to this day. Vispring has never wavered from its original philosophy of using the best craftsmanship and quality materials to produce the finest beds in the world.
