Gracefully handcrafted, Proteas is our most exclusive and elaborately constructed mattress. Built up in multiple layers, it is completely metal-free and contains our signature combination of natural materials. Seaweed, cactus fiber and horsehair that regulate humidity. The zipper opening allows for easy maintenance and a longer lifespan. As is the case with many of our mattresses, you can choose between a more elastic or firmer side. The luxurious, plush cover is padded with thick high quality cotton for added softness and an elegant touch. All double mattresses are made of two single units, joined together inside a washable cotton cover, ensuring uniformity.

Why should I choose a mattress of natural materials and not of metal springs?
Mattresses without springs are comparatively superior to those with springs. Natural materials offer even, isometric body support and do not contain noise sources. On the contrary, springs give different support to their points of connection than in the middle of each separately. Also, despite the fact that they are dressed with cotton, it is more possible to produce noise because they are made of steel.
In addition, natural materials last longer. Their resilience through time, not only because of their natural origin but also because of their characteristics (elasticity, reset), it is larger than the resilience of the springs which are artificial.
Finally, natural materials have bigger resilience in heavy and careless use and do not produce magnetic fields. Every kind of metal generates even a minor magnetic field.
