Open coil mattresses are made from rows of individual springs, with more 'give' than pocket springs. The fairly simple construction of the open coil mattress means that it is one of the most cost-effective on the market.
In a pocket spring mattress the springs are sewn into individual fabric pockets. They provide better support for your body as each coil absorbs the weight individually. The top layers can vary from cotton felt and lamb's wool to the finest cotton felt with cashmere.

Your White Company mattress is skillfully made in the UK and generously upholstered with high quality materials. After 10 years a mattress will have experienced 30,000 hours of use and will deteriorate by up to 70% from new.
Follow these tips to make sure your mattress lasts as long as possible:
Turn the mattress over, side to side and head to foot alternately; ideally once a week for the first three months, and then once a month.
Let the mattress have a good airing on a regular basis, simply leave the bed linen turned back for a few hours.
Brush the surface of the mattress to keep it clear of dust, dirt and fluff. Do not vacuum as this may damage the fillings.
Consider using a good quality mattress protector under your bed linen.
Please remember not to fold or roll the mattress, even if for a short period of time. All interior spring mattresses should be kept flat at all times.
Avoid putting anything such as plastic sheeting, or a plastic bag, between the mattress and the divan. Doing so will only cause damage through trapped condensation.
Avoid sitting regularly right on the edge of the bed, this will place undue strain on the edge springs and could damage the sides.
Avoid standing on or jumping on either the mattress or base.
Avoid using your mattress on an unsuitable or imperfect base, as doing so will result in the premature ageing of the mattress.
