At Savoir we use the very best, breathable natural materials in our beds, because research and experience show they give the best results. Synthetic fibres, latex and memory foams tend to cause sweating and deteriorate over time, but animal fibres such as wool and horse hair channel moisture away, helping to regulate body temperature all year round and improving the quality of REM sleep.

Our natural, chemical-free fillings are kinder not only to the sleeper but also – during both processing and disposal – to the environment.

Horse tail is the undisputed king of upholstery hair. That’s horse tail, not horse hair, cattle tail or any other cheaper alternative. Its length makes it the very finest filling available – and we are the only bed company to place it at the heart of most of our mattresses and toppers.
The horse tail of the highest and most consistent quality comes from South America. Steam-cleaned at a very high temperature without chemicals, it is twisted tightly and left for at least three months to acquire permanent curl. At Savoir Beds we take delivery of horse-tail rope coils – each weighing in at 50kg – in massive quantities, as we use more per bed than anyone else.

Lengths of hand-tied cane give our No1 box spring the finest sprung edge possible. Cane has natural give and is very durable; unlike metal, it doesn‘t kink or distort. It takes skilled hands to manipulate it and tie it securely in place.

Cashmere Wool

Cashmere Wool

Combed from the neck of Mongolian goats, this rare and most luxurious of wools - prized for its warmth and ultra-fine, downy fibres - is used in our sumptuous HCa topper. Unlike other manufacturers, we don’t blend our cashmere with cheaper fibres or bury it so far down you can’t feel it. We place it under a specially developed, naturally stretchy cotton fabric to ensure you benefit from its exquisite softness.

We use naturally soft and fluffy cotton fibre to act as an insulating layer around the pocket-spring unit in the mattresses. We combine it with wool and maize fibres to make it naturally fire-retardant (all our fillings are chemical-free).

Horsetail

Horse tail - as opposed to horse hair, cattle tail or other cheaper alternatives - is the undisputed king of upholstery hair, and we are the only bed company to use it so extensively. Each long strand holds many curls, resulting in a micro-spring of unparalleled bounce and longevity. Millions of these springs go into just one bed, hand-teased onto the mattress, topper or box spring for that fabulous Savoir feel. Naturally hollow like wool, horse tail wicks away moisture and helps regulate your temperature for a supremely comfortable night’s sleep.

Laid Cord

This is a very strong, flax-based cord with a waxed finish. At Savoir we use it to hand-tie eight ways the hourglass springs in our No1, No2 and No3 box springs. An old form of cord, it is similar to the exceptionally durable long-bow string used by archers.

Lambswool

Lambswool

Wool provides the cushioning in the mattress, so typically we use large quantities of it. At Savoir we use pure, soft lambswool to ensure the most sumptuous sleep experience. Wool has many advantages over man-made products: perhaps the most important is that it allows the mattress to ‘breathe‘ by wicking away moisture, thereby helping the sleeper to maintain an optimal, even temperature throughout the night.

Premium-quality timber plays an important role in the construction of our bases and headboards. We select only FSC high-grade, knot-free pine, beech and - for drawers - oak. All our frames are expertly constructed with traditionally crafted joints to provide at least 25 years of support.
