PATENTED SCHLARAFIA HANDMADE SPRING CORE
WHAT IS IT THAT A HAND CAN DO, BUT A MACHINE CAN’T?
The heart of our mattresses is the handmade Schlarafia core. A commercial industrial core manufacturing machine produces 50 single pieces in one hour. The hands of our masters make only one such hand-knitted core at the same time, controlling each thread and connecting the springs in detail and precision. With that in mind, it is clear that the properties of handmade mattresses are incomparable to those made on the production line.
HOW WAS THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCHLARAFIA’S HANDMADE SPRING CORE?
In the very yard on Čubura, where the idea of Schlarafia was conceived, a superior spring core was created, which aimed to contribute to the durability of mattresses and upholstered furniture. The innovation of one grandfather and his grandson gave birth to what today gathers tens of thousands of sleepers around the Schlarafia brand, whose mattresses are the same as on the first day.
After proving its durability and usability in order to support the spinal column in practice, the moment came for Schlarafia’s handmade core to experience official confirmation of its effectiveness and uniqueness. Experts from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering as well as experts from the field of intellectual property rights were involved in the project, which had the task of unambiguously explaining and proving the originality of the patent and its clear purpose. Thus, after several decades, the handmade spring core finally received patent protection as an innovation that is authentic and inalienable. Therefore, know that you can only find this core in Schlarafia’s handmade mattresses.
AND FINALLY: WHY IS THE SHLARAFIA HANDMADE CORE SO SPECIAL?
Schlarafia’s patented handmade spring core has as many as 35% more springs compared to a machine-made core, and that’s why each spring suffers less load, and our core lasts longer and has far better orthopedic-medical characteristics. Why is this important?
Schlarafia’s patented handmade core has 4 spring attachment points, as opposed to 2 points for the machine-made one. This allows the pressure forces on the core to be evenly distributed not only on one spring, but on 9 of them – in this way, each spring suffers up to 9 times less load, which affects the durability of the core and improves its properties. Schlarafia’s patented handmade core has excellent orthopedic and medical characteristics.
Schlarafia’s patented handmade core acts like a large air bellows, which enables unhindered air circulation and ensures continuous airing of the mattress.
Comfort and orthopedic-medical characteristics are at an extremely high level, and we have provided them with a combination of high-quality materials and top-quality workmanship by Schlarafia craftsmen with decades of experience in our company. We added heat-set felt of exceptional quality, rich density combined with coconut coir in the so-called protective layer to protect our carefully bound core.
Thanks to the patent designed in this way, we confidently offer you a 15-year guarantee on the immutability of the core’s properties.
DID YOU KNOW THAT OUR MOST SKILLED CRAFTSMEN need more than an hour to weave the core of the mattress you sleep on? In contrast, a machine that produces ordinary industrial cores, far less dense and durable, makes more than fifty cores at the same time. The training of our guys in manual work lasts for months and has been passed down as a valuable skill for decades. Only when they have completely mastered this skill their hands will knit the heart of your mattress. That’s why our masters are not like others. They are Schlarafia’s craftsmen!
