The No2 boxspring is complete with a double-stitched 3” hair roll with a frame of Grade 1 pine, both screwed and glued for durability. The hourglass springs are star-lashed, involving hand-tying the springs to each other and to the frame at exactly the right tension in a radial pattern. This technique – using a traditional oiled-flax cord endorsed by archers at the Battle of Agincourt – is not only extremely strong, but also allows each spring to move as independently as possible. The slightest error in tension and the shape and comfort of the bed would be compromised.
