PLYMOUTH, England, Oct. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury British bed maker, Vispring, was pleased to welcome Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex, to its factory in Plymouth on Tuesday, October 20. The Countess of Wessex enjoyed a tour of Vispring's factory and met many of its master craftsmen before officially opening the company's new showroom.
As active supporters of the Campaign for Wool, both Her Royal Highness and Vispring are passionate about the use of British wool. Vispring is proud to use more Platinum Certified pure British fleece wool than any other bed maker in the world and the factory team were able to show The Countess of Wessex exactly how the precious fiber is used within Vispring's luxurious beds. Chris Harrison, Vispring's Operations Director, explained the benefits of using wool for bed making, before Kevin Webb, who has worked 15+ years in the natural fillings section, explained how he creates unique blends of materials to generously hand-fill Vispring's mattresses.
Vispring's Managing Director, Mike Meehan, commented: "We are very grateful to The Countess of Wessex for taking the time to visit our factory. We are devoted to using only the finest natural materials and highest standards of craftsmanship to make our bespoke beds and mattresses, so it has been a great honour to have the opportunity to show Her Royal Highness the process first hand."
Vispring (www.vispring.com) believes that your bed is a catalyst for a wealth of enticing possibilities; a day that follows a night in a Vispring bed is full of potential and positive energy.
All Vispring mattresses are handmade to order in the company's factory in Devon. It's an uncompromising approach, but because sleep is such a deeply personal part of life, Vispring believes it's the only way to guarantee that every bed is exquisitely comfortable and fits its owner like a glove; ensuring they can reap all the benefits of a full and healthy life.
Founded in 1901, Vispring now exports across the globe. Renowned as the first bed maker to produce an interior sprung mattress using a system of individually pocketed springs, it changed the way beds are made to this day.
