Quick Overview

Craft Bedding is a U.S. mattress manufacturer based in California. The brand currently offers one bed, the flagship model known as the Craft Mattress. This mattress is constructed with a quilted cover made of eucalyptus fibers and wool, followed by comfort layers of Dunlop latex and 5 PCF memory foam. The support core is made of 1.8 PCF high-density polyfoam. The Craft Mattress measures 13 1/2″ thick. The Craft Mattress is available in a ‘Standard Comfort’ design, which is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale. Craft Bedding also offers the ‘Personal Comfort’ setting, which includes customized firmness settings ranging from ‘Medium Soft’ (4.5) to ‘Firm’ (7.5).

The Craft Mattress is a good option for hot sleepers, particularly those who have had uncomfortable experiences on all-foam beds. The cover is made from a blend of eucalyptus fibers, which have cooling properties, and moisture-wicking wool that keeps sleepers cool during the night. The latex and foam components also create a good balance of cushioning and responsiveness, resulting in a moderate feel that should feel comfortable for most sleepers in the average weight group, as well as lighter or heavier individuals who prefer medium settings. In the event of excessive sagging or deterioration, Craft Bedding will exchange the bed’s latex layer with a new layer for an additional charge, which starts at $199. This can help extend the lifespan of the mattress, which is already longer than average due to its latex component.

Please note: Customers planning to purchase a ‘Personal Comfort’ model are asked to complete an online quiz, answering questions based on their weight, sleep position, preferred firmness, and other criteria. Tuck analysts have identified a few issues with the quiz. The generated results appear to be identical regardless of the given answers; the results do not list a specific firmness setting. Additionally, quiz-takers cannot receive full results unless they include information about a sleep partner; this makes the quiz limiting for single sleepers.

The Craft Mattress has a moderate price-point; it is more expensive than the average memory foam mattress, but cheaper than the average all-latex mattress. Craft Bedding offers free shipping anywhere in the contiguous U.S. The mattress is backed by a 100-night sleep trial and a lifetime warranty.

CATEGORY RATING WHAT USERS ARE SAYING
Durability GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Craft Mattress has a top comfort layer of natural Dunlop latex, which withstands sagging and deterioration better than most foams. The expected lifespan is about seven years. Craft Bedding will also replace sagging comfort layers for an extra charge, which can also help extend the lifespan.

Motion Isolation GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Because its comfort layer is made of latex, the Craft Mattress absorbs and isolates motion fairly well, but it does not reduce transfer to the same extent as an all-foam bed.

Off-gassing GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Craft Mattress may emit some off-gassing odor when new; smells should dissipate in a matter of days, though a light odor may persist (as is typical of latex-foam models).

Conforming GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The 'Standard Comfort' Craft Mattress has a 'Medium Firm' feel that conforms to a moderate extent; it is optimal for those who weigh at least 130 pounds. The 'Personal Comfort' design offers a customizable firmness range of 'Medium Soft' to 'Firm,' making it a good option for most sleepers regardless of their weight or preferred position.

Sex GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Craft Mattress is somewhat responsive, but couples seeking a springy bed may find innersprings or hybrids more suitable.

Temperature Neutrality VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The bed has a cover made from a blend of cooling eucalyptus fibers and moisture-wicking wool; these components allow the bed to regulate the sleeper's temperature and maintain a cool, comfortable surface.

Edge Support GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:A 7" support core of high-density foam reinforces the bed, which helps bolster edge support, but sinkage may still occur around the perimeter.

Noise EXCELLENT

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Craft Mattress is virtually silent when bearing weight.

What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Craft Mattress?

The Craft Mattress has received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses.

The ‘Standard Comfort’ Craft Mattress has a ‘Medium Firm’ feel that is ideal for back and stomach sleepers who weigh 130 to 230 pounds, as well as side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. The ‘Standard Comfort’ bed may feel excessively firm for those who weigh less than 130 pounds; this weight group will likely feel more comfortable on a ‘Personal Comfort’ Craft Mattress with a ‘Medium Soft’ or ‘Medium’ setting. Likewise, heavier back and stomach sleepers may find that a ‘Personal Comfort’ mattress with a ‘Firm’ setting offers the most comfort and support.

Our testing process found Craft Mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You prefer a balance of responsiveness from latex and foam cushioning
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You tend to sleep hot, especially on all-foam beds
  • You like sleeping on beds with thicker-than-average profiles

What You Need to Know About Craft Mattresses

Construction and Firmness

First, let’s take a closer look at how the Craft Mattress is constructed. The table below lists firmness, thickness, and material composition specs for the bed. Please note the table specs refer to the bed’s ‘standard comfort’ settings.

In addition to standard firmness, Craft Bedding claims to offer customizable firmness based on results from a user-generated sleep quiz. We have determined that the sleep quiz does not produce specific data based on quiz answers.

    • Unraveling seams.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that do not measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper, or normal cosmetic changes that occur over time. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
    • Repair or replacement requests that occur due to changes in the owner’s comfort preferences.
    • Mattress smells resulting from the manufacturing process.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur due to abuse, misuse, or neglect.

How Does Craft Bedding Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how the Craft Mattress stacks up to other beds.

The Craft Mattress offers exceptional temperature neutrality. Its cooling cover made of eucalyptus fibers and moisture-wicking wool helps regulate the sleeper’s body temperature, keeping the bed comfortable during hotter times of the year; this can be beneficial to those who sleep hot on all-foam beds. The mattress also isolates motion transfer fairly well and does not make any noise, making it a good pick for couples. Although the ‘Standard Comfort’ model has a fixed firmness setting, the ‘Personal Comfort’ option offers a firmness range of ‘Medium Soft’ to ‘Firm.’

However, we have identified some issues with the company’s online sleep quiz; the quiz appears to generate generic results regardless of answers given, and does not appear to generate any results for single sleepers. Additionally, very few details are provided about distinctions between the bed’s ‘standard comfort’ and customized designs. These issues may impact the customer’s overall experience with Craft Bedding.
