Finishes and fillings

quilted and tape edge border mattress

The damask fabric is quilted for subtle cushioning. Highly trained craftsmen sew all around the mattress edges with tape edging fabric to seal the top and bottom panels to the borders. These fixed quilted cases help keep entry level mattresses at great value prices.

tufted mattresses

Hand tufting a mattress is a traditional skill that ensures all loose fillings are secured to provide the perfect finish to your mattress. Our tufted mattresses use either felt or woollen tufts, woollen tufts being used on our higher specification luxury mattresses.

hand side stitched border mattresses

Relyon’s skilled craftsmen use upholstery needles to hand side stitch mattresses with as many as five rows of stitching. This is a lengthy process that has taken our experienced craftsmen years to master. It provides support to the mattress walls, extending the sleeping area to the edge of the mattress. It takes up to half a day to hand side stitch the borders on a top Heritage collection mattress.

upholstery settlement

The fillings used in Relyon mattresses may settle over the first few weeks or months. Do not worry if hollows appear in the sleeping areas of your mattress leaving a central area of unsettled fillings. This is a result of the fillings compacting under your body weight. Compression through use over time is quite normal and not a fault. By following the turning and rotating instructions below, this will help to create an even filling settlement and compression over the mattress surface.
Turning & Rotating Instructions
The label on your mattress will indicate if the mattress needs regular turning, or simply rotating on the same side.

Turn and rotate your mattress regularly
It is important that you turn over and rotate your mattress once a week for the first 3 months and then once a month thereafter. This will allow the fillings to settle evenly and will prolong the life and comfort of your mattress.

no turn mattresses

Your mattress will still need to be rotated once a week for the first 3 months, then every 3 months thereafter to ensure even settlement across the surface of the mattress.
