Every Unessa Mattress has a story. I hope you enjoy this one:
The latest breakthrough in science creates a more comfortable mattress. It wasn’t always like this.
During the Neolithic period, the mattress and bed are invented. Beds are raised off the ground to avoid drafts, dirt, and pests. The first mattress probably consisted of a pile of leaves, grass, or possibly straw, with animal skins over it.
Around 3600 BC, beds made of goatskins filled with water are used in Persia.
In 3400 BC, Egyptians sleep on palm boughs heaped in the corners of their homes.
Around 200 BC, mattresses in Ancient Rome consist of bags of cloth stuffed with reeds, hay, or wool; the wealthy use feather stuffing.
During the Renaissance, mattresses are made of pea shucks, straw, or sometimes feathers, stuffed into coarse ticks, and covered with velvets, brocades, or silks.
In the early 18th century, mattresses are stuffed with cotton or wool. Soon after, mattress covers begin to be made of quality linen or cotton. The mattress cane box is shaped or bordered, and fillings include natural fibers such as coconut fibre, cotton, wool, and horsehair. The mattress is tufted or buttoned to attach the stuffing to the cover and the edges are stitched.
In 1857, the steel coil spring is invented and is first patented for use in chair seats and in 1865, the first coil spring construction for bedding is patented.
This mattress combines the outstanding thermal conductivity of graphite-infused memory foam with the temperature regulation of phase change material to ensure the optimum sleep temperature through the night.
