Luxury Pocket Sprung Mattress Vispring
Vispring’s luxury pocket sprung mattresses are handcrafted using individual calico pocket springs, made in our Plymouth, UK workshop. Each spring is used to respond and contour to your body shape, offering maximum support and comfort. Our pocket sprung mattresses are available in a wide variety of sizes, zip and linked pairs and also in custom dimensions.

Pocket sprung mattresses use a combination of fabric pockets and springs to create a sleeping surface that responds to your body in the best way, offering unmatched full body support.

Our vanadium pocket springs are expertly manufactured, they display strength and flexibility that is without equal. Honeycomb-nested inside natural cotton calico pockets, they mould your mattress to your body, providing constant support with no undue pressure. By day, they readopt their original shape to preserve your bed’s structure for many years to come.

where did it all start?

It takes confidence to shake up an entire industry, which is precisely what a young James Marshall did in 1899. A British Canadian engineer, he was the trailblazer responsible for pioneering the use of pocket springs in mattresses — a fundamental advancement that transformed the way we sleep. Previous incarnations, which were stuffed with a lumpy mixture of hay, down and cotton were soon considered antiquated in comparison to Marshall’s radical invention.

Packed with high quality natural fibres, his sumptuous coiled spring alternative put human physiology at the core by guaranteeing even weight distribution, shock absorption and long-lasting, unparalleled comfort. This innovative approach gained serious momentum and by the 1920s these luxurious handmade mattresses were already commonplace in the bedrooms of the finest homes in the country.


When compared to an open coil mattress, a pocket sprung mattress is a better choice for many reasons. The individual pocket springs move independently from each other which allows for much better support and comfort. The construction of the mattress also means that the movement is restricted so it’s a great choice for couples as there is less chance that you will wake each other during the night.


In general, the more pocket springs that are contained within a mattress, the more supportive it will be. A higher spring count offers more contact points with your body and will better contour to your shape. Our luxury pocket sprung mattresses are available from 1200 springs to over 4000 springs and are available in a range of tensions from soft to very firm.

At the heart of each of our mattresses lies a single, double or triple layer of springs. This multi-layered construction provides the ultimate in responsiveness and support. So much more than their number, it’s the shape and gauge of the springs that matter. With nine different wire gauges and 74 distinct spring types to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the perfect spring tensions for both you and your partner.
