Harrison Beds start an exceptional journey on their very own farm. A 300 acre space where a flock of Texel, Mule, Suffolk and Zwartbles sheep are reared. The wool these sheep produce is the finest pure-grade British wool, and it has an abundance of helpful qualities. Harrison utilise specific wools for their natural softness, their durable bounce and their natural wicking abilities; all very useful when making a mattress. Also grown on this farm is Hemp and Flax, using these fibres in a mattress offers it excellent heat regulation, helping you stay cool and fresh during your nights sleep. Hemp is actually a carbon neutral crop that doesn't require pesticides, and with Harrisons Farm only a short drive away from their production facility, it drastically reduces environmental impact.

Harrison beds form to your body shape quickly, ensuring a supportive excellent nights sleep. This is achieved using thousands of springs in what Harrison call High Density pocket spring system. Utilising their awarding winning “Revolution” spring-within-a-spring units for unrivalled comfort.
These springs are made from titanium, which gives them the ability to adapt to weight variations quickly while retaining their shape throughout many years of everyday usage. The dual pocketed spring produces two levels of support tensions, as they are compressed the second shorter spring comes into play, giving better resistance to heavier areas of the body, as required.
In conjunction with the main springs there are also mini spring layers, these enhance mattress flexibility, producing incredible levels of extra comfort and support, delivering that much needed pressure relief by meeting your bodies contours. Leaving you well rested and fresh for the day ahead.
Good health is often associated with quality of sleep. The body resets and repairs itself during sleep. It is therefore no surprise that a better quality bed is likely to improve your quality of sleeping. Harrisons understand that couples that share a mattress can struggle with their partners being a different size, i.e. height, weight and body shape. This can present complications that can be difficult to overcome. Harrison beds have options that mean you can tailor a mattress to suit you, without the massive price tag. For instance if you are lighter or prefer a gentler mattress to your partner, Harrison allow you to select a different tension for each side of the mattress, meaning customised comfort for everyone. Other tension options are available.
Every Harrisons bed is side stitched by hand, including up to 6 rows of natural twine hand stitching. The craft takes many years to master, but once achieved they can provide edge to edge support that massively improves comfort and longevity. Hand stitching in this way forms thousands of contact points from the springs, the mattress border and the outer rows of the mattress upholstery. Harrisons take this legacy very seriously and today they are the only bed manufacturer to produce their own vanadium steel springs, ensuring the highest standards of perfection. These springs are taken and stitched within natural cotton calico pockets.
Ethically sourced natural elements, produced within Harrisons Yorkshire based farm, demonstrate a very rare supply chain in todays modern, import everything world.
This ensures a special relationship between the environment, production and natural sustainability of these wonderfully comfortable beds. For example the home grown wool is soft, springy and naturally supportive, keeping you warm and comfortable, whilst also being anti-bacterial with inherent fire retardant properties.
Flax fibre is used to produce linen. It’s strong, light and a sustainable material which creates a breathable organic covering that helps improve moisture management. Hemp is another excellent plant which creates a highly absorbent material and is naturally resistant to mildew, adding an air of freshness that is very hygienic. Other natural materials are used in Harrison beds such as Silk, Cashmere, Mohair, Egyptian Cotton, Horsehair and White Curled Hair, all ethically sourced externally to the farm in Yorkshire.
