When making our continental beds and mattresses we focus particular attention on the precision workmanship of every detail. We have spent several years developing our beds and mattresses, and it is this know-how, handed down through the generations, that guarantees you a unique and restful sleep.

The carefully selected, top-quality natural materials used for the manufacturing of our products are supplied solely by the leading world’s manufacturing companies.

Cotton

Cotton

People have grown cotton for more than 6000 years. Cotton is pleasant to the touch, perfectly absorbs moisture, and is soft and very strong. What is more, it is naturally hypoallergenic – it does not irritate the skin and does not cause allergic reactions. These are the main reasons why cotton is still one of the most widely used materials in the manufacture of natural mattresses and continental beds. Johann Malle beds and mattresses use it as the outer layer.

Cashmere

Cashmere

Cashmere wool consists of cashmere fibres, which are obtained from cashmere goats. They live in the Himalayan regions on a very cold, dry plateaus, mostly at high-altitudes. We use only the highest quality and finest fibres to make our Johann Malle mattresses and beds. Each goat only provides a small quantity of the best quality fibres – this is generally no more than 150 grams. This makes cashmere a highly exclusive material, which will leave you with a feeling of complete and absolute satisfaction as you wake. 

Coir

Coir

Coir is a renewable natural resource and is obtained from the outer leathery husks of coconuts. Coir is extremely durable, resistant to abrasion and moisture. Coir adds stiffness to Johan Malle mattresses and beds while maintaining high breathability. Hemp fibre is an alternative natural material with similar properties.

Manilla

Manilla

Hemp fibres are obtained from the plants of cannabis sativa. It is a tough and durable natural material with some unique properties: it is several times stronger than cotton, perfectly absorbs moisture, is very soft, does not irritate the skin and has antiseptic properties. The unique properties of hemp fibres, which are some of the longest and strongest plant fibres, were discovered by people 7000 years ago. 

Horsehair

Horsehair

Horsehair is very flexible, stable, and resistant to wear and tear and is able to accumulate heat and draw off moisture perfectly. Horsehair helps to get rid of harmful moisture and cold. This is why horsehair has been used as a filling for mattresses and beds for hundreds of years. Horsehair is obtained by continuously trimming off the tips of manes and tails of horses bred in huge herds on the vast plains of Mongolia and the U.S.A.

Flex

Flex

Flax fibres are obtained from the stem of flax, which is one of the plants used by people since the very earliest times. They are stronger than cotton fibres, have high tensile strength, can absorb moisture, conduct heat well and have a long lifetime. They are used in mattresses and continental beds as they do a better job of distributing your body weight distribution across the surface of the bed.

Sheep wool

Sheep wool

Its flexibility, softness and durability make wool a popular material for natural mattresses and beds. It is antibacterial and waterproof. Wool is able to retain air inside the fleece and has excellent unique thermoregulation properties. Wool insulates in both directions: it provides warmth in winter and cools you down in summer. Johann Malle mattresses and beds with sheep’s wool are suitable for asthmatics, allergy sufferers and for people with joint problems and back pain.

Natural rubber

Natural rubber

Natural rubber is obtained from the Brazilian rubber tree, a tropical species. Its resin dries to form a very soft and porous material. Natural rubber is widely used in mattresses and beds for its breathability, waterproof properties and elasticity. Natural rubber is hypoallergenic, has antiseptic properties and is much more resistant to mites than other materials.

Camel wool

Camel wool

The camel’s wool used in our natural mattresses and beds is obtained by manually combing the hair of camels bred in large herds in Mongolia. The fibres of camel’s wool are hollow and have unique insulating properties. Just like sheep’s wool, camel’s wool is fully breathable, protects against cold and heat, and is very light and pleasantly warm to the touch.
