To find out everything there is to know about making a Le Briand wool mattress, we’re sharing the frequently asked questions that many of you have asked and may be asking yourself.


Crafting a unique object.

A made-to-order process in order to combine comfort and style.

Thanks to our made-to-order process, the mattress is customized to suit your needs, not only in terms of comfort, but also in terms of aesthetics!

We adapt to all sleeper profiles.

While following traditional methods, hand-crafted, made-to-measure, single-unit production allows for a few stylistic eccentricities as well as customization of mattress features according to the customer’s comfort preferences, morphology and aesthetic tastes.

Without neglecting comfort, we aim to meet the most diverse requirements:

  • mattress size
  • mattress firmness
  • mattress support
  • mattress reception
  • style and type of fabric envelope
  • product decor
  • mattress shape
  • with or without bulges

Lead time

Lead time

We can adapt if you have time constraints. Don’t hesitate to share them with us.

As we discuss the production process in advance, we’ll be able to estimate the lead time.

It’s important to know when you’ll be equipped to sleep better.

The lead time varies according to :

  • the confirmed orders
  • the current workshop workload

Thanks to a direct, local and short supply chain, the acquisition of materials has less impact on our lead times.

If you have time constraints, we invite you to share them with us so that we can do our best.

Deadlines in the bedding industry

Contrary to the brands’ race for immediacy, there’s no quality logic to going faster and faster in the home bedding sector.

A mattress has incompressible manufacturing rules that are incompatible with 24-hour quality production.

We’ve waited a few years for a new mattress, so we can wait a few weeks for a cozy night’s sleep.

A mattress for life

We also repair old wool mattresses.

We recommend refurbishing a wool mattress every 8 to 12 years of daily use (depending on storage conditions).

Reconstituting an upholstered mattress can be done during the day, provided the room is uncomplicated. We therefore invite you to contact us beforehand to agree on a time for refurbishment (depending in particular on workshop activity), so that you don’t have to find a temporary sleeping solution.

Bed set

We think of the bed as a whole, with each part working in concert. That’s why we make custom box spr ings for complete synergy.

In addition to upholstered mattresses, we also make other custom bedding and decorative items, following the same principles:
