Health, Comfort, and Value
We have traveled the world to find the purest and most durable components to build better beds. All of our components are certified by Öko-Tex Standard 100 confirming that they conform to the strictest European standard for harmful substances and chemicals in mattresses. Combined, they create a clean bed for healthy, more restful sleep.

Merino Wool ~ The Benefits of Wool Quilting
Sometimes the best technology is the oldest. We love to find innovative solutions, but there is no getting around the perfection of wool fiber for enhancing mattress performance. For this we have Mother Nature to thank.
Why Wool is Perfect
A mattress’ quilting directly affects your sleep temperature. While most US mattress producers use non-breathable synthetic fibers like polyester to upholster and quilt their mattresses, Design Sleep uses wool. Sleep studies have shown that wool creates better temperature regulation, thereby lowering your heart rate and allowing you to sleep soundly—a big health incentive. Wool wicks moisture and allows it to evaporate, keeping you and your mattress drier. You sleep more comfortably, and your mattress does not become a breeding ground for allergens like mold, mildew, and dust mites. Wool also acts like a natural fire-retardant, so our mattresses are chemical-free.
Our German-sourced wool is certified according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100, a strict set of European environmental guidelines. And our supplier uses a natural soda bath washing process to achieve the cleanest wool.
Wool provides the same advantages when it is used for bedding as it does inside your mattress. We offer twin, queen, and king-sized wool-filled duvets that are imported from Slovenia. They are warmer when you’re cold, cooler when you’re hot, and drier when it’s humid.
- Transports moisture: Better body temperature regulation and fewer allergens
- Natural fire retardant: No chemicals needed
- Durable: Wool’s natural crimp makes it exceptionally resilient
- Oeko-Tex certified chemical free: No harmful substances and no off gassing.
Natural Latex Cushioning ~ Latex Foam for Natural Sleep Comfort
Why Latex is Better
Known for its durability, natural latex is a dense, resilient material derived from rubber. It possesses tremendous elasticity—it’s stretchy—which makes it excellent for minimizing contact pressure and motion transfer. Unlike polyurethane foam, it performs reliably and maintains its physical integrity over time. It is able to fill a tall order: to be soft, flexible, and stable.
Natural, green latex is also desirable for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial properties. More breathable than synthetic foam, it not only resists mold and mildew, but also discourages dust mites, making latex the ideal choice for a healthy mattress.
Design Sleep uses 100% natural Talalay and Dunlop process latex. Both processes yield quality, high-performance latex, but each possesses unique textural qualities. Talalay has a softer and more elastic character. Dunlop process creates a denser texture.
The European testing board Oeko-Tex certifies that our latex meets the highest standard for cleanliness and purity. The latex we use is free of toxic substances, including formaldehydes, bromides, and PBDE’s (Polybrominated diphenal ethers, which are used in chemical flame retardants). Our latex includes no fillers and has been thoroughly washed to remove all soaps and residues.
Design Sleep uses natural latex exclusively in our mattress models, pillow top, pillows and wedge. Rest easy and sleep soundly knowing you’re cradled by all-natural latex.
- Made from Rubber: It’s natural and durable—resistant to sag
- Elastic by nature: Conforms to body shape without bounce or movement
- Anti-allergen: Better for nighttime breathing
- Oeko-Tex certified chemical free: No harmful substances and no off gassing
European Pocket Coils ~ A Better Coil System for Better Sleep
Sourcing a Better Coil
We source our steel coils from Germany and Sweden for a reason: superior performance. The innovative coil designs we use in our various mattress styles feature pocketed coils that have been pre-loaded to the “active zone”—the ideal compression point for a coil’s performance. This pre-compression creates a more specific body contour and less motion transfer. And our mattresses have a greater coil count—often twice as many—as the typical American-made mattress. They are also stronger and more flexible than standard American tempered steel coils.
We’ve also incorporated the latest in cutting-edge coil design with the Alpine’s bi-level interactive coil and the pre-compressed base- and micro-coil designs used in our Nordic series. These specialty coils have unique performance characteristics that provide subtle variations in feel and dynamic. Like all our materials, our coils have been certified free of hazardous substances by Oeko-Tex, the independent European testing board.
- German and Swedish design: Innovative; engineered for greater performance characteristics
- High-quality manufacturing: Flexible, durable, resistant to sag
- Pocketed and pre-loaded: Excellent contour and motion transfer control
- High coil count: Greater density and stability
Organic Cotton ~ The Perfect Fiber for a Natural Mattress
Why We Don’t Compromise on Organic Cotton
Cotton plays an important role in a good night’s sleep. Because it is such a breathable fiber, it reduces humidity. That translates into better body temperature regulation, improved mattress durability, and fewer allergens. We specifically use organic stretch-knit cotton on our mattresses, pillow tops, mattress pads, and pillow covers to dramatically reduce surface tension. Less surface tension means less contact pressure and motion transfer. And it’s hard to find a fiber that has a better texture. Cotton just plain feels good against your skin.
Like all the materials we use in our products, we don’t compromise on quality. We use organic, long staple cotton—longer fibers reflect higher quality cotton. Our German cotton supplier has been producing knit fabrics for 60 years. They take care to wash their raw cotton, eliminating allergens that come from ultra-fine cotton dust. And their commitment to product quality and environmental responsibility is reflected in its two Oeko-Tex certifications.
Organic Stretch-Knit Cotton Features
- Breathable: Reduces humidity for better sleep temperature
- Stretch-knit weave: Reduces surface tension for deeper contour and less motion
- Soft texture: Ideal for surfaces that make contact with skin
- Oeko-Tex certified: No harmful chemicals. A clean, healthy fiber
