How Do You Fit A Mattress In A Box?

How are mattresses rolled up?

We care for every single one of our SleepSoul mattresses and they all start the same journey (as a huge comfy mattress) before being packed into a small easy to handle box! But how do we get our mattresses in a box you ask? Well here’s your answer….

Step 1 – Our SleepSoul mattresses are carefully packed into a protective bag (Here’s where the magic starts! ✨✨✨

Step 2 – We flatten each mattress using a compression machine

Step 3 – Vacuum and heat seal the bag

Step 4 – Roll the mattress using a bumbler and seal once more

Step 5 – A perfectly formed SleepSoul mattress is shrunk to a 1/8 of it’s original size.

See how the magic happens below
