Bespoke British Mattresses

James Marshall: Creator of The First Pocket-Sprung Mattress

The Vispring story begins with an English Engineer called James Marshall. Whilst working abroad in Canada in 1899, Marshall created a support system for his wife who had been taken ill. He wrapped a series of coiled springs in muslin and covered them with horsehair, creating a supple quilt. Later labelled ‘The Marshall Mattress’, little did James know that this simple design would revolutionise the industry, establishing the foundation for the pocket spring mattress for decades to come.

Vispring Established in 1901

Recognising the innovation of Marshall’s idea, John Nolan and Frederick James took on the role of promoting the Marshall Mattress in Britain, launching the ‘Marshall Sanitary Mattress Company’ in 1901. Ten years later and the business begins to look more like the brand we know today. The company adopts the famous Vispring name and interprets their product through a new logo: a hare motif (representing the bounce and resilience of the mattress springs) and the number 6 in Roman numerals: VI. This is a reference to the 6-turn springs that are used at this time inside each hand-sewn mattress pocket.
