Why Le Briand wool mattress?

For a matchless sleeping experience

The Le Briand wool mattress has it all. All its qualities and benefits are at the service of optimum sleep, so important for good health.

We’ve been making it since 1880, and we’re proud to offer a mattress designed with one thing in mind: to sleep ever more comfortably.

All the reasons to sleep on a Le Briand Wool Mattress

Sleeping confort first

The mattress adapts to your sleeping profile, not the other way around. Hand-crafted, made-to-measure manufacturing allows us to aim for the greatest possible granularity in the sleeping experience.

Benefiting the extraordinary powers of wool

Wool provides both support and softness. It also keeps you drier than any other fiber. Your bed will feel warm in winter and cool in summer.

A long-term investment

While the financial impact of buying an old wool mattress can be hard on the budget, in the long term this effort is transformed into savings.

With comfort in mind

Everything is in place for quality sleep: it has to be restorative.

Establishing a sleeping experience based on your comfort preferences is what we’re all about.

A sheep’s wool mattress creates the conditions for a cozy, restful sleep.

The comfort of a Le Briand mattress also depends on 2 other dimensions:

  • the nature of the filling, in other words, the care and experience of the mattress manufacturer in choosing the best possible materials for restful sleep.
  • the way in which the upholstery is fitted, i.e. the mattress manufacturer’s requirement for a mattress solution that suits the customer.
