Loom & Leaf Mattress Review

The Loom and Leaf by Saatva is a mattress focused squarely at dethroning Tempurpedic as the main name in memory foam mattresses. Of all of the direct-to-consumer mattresses I’ve tried, the Loom and Leaf feels the most like Tempurpedic and at a fraction of the price.

SUMMARY

Loom & Leaf bills itself as a company providing a luxury retail, premium quality mattress at a  convenient, online direct-to-consumer price.

Loom & Leaf was born in 2015 while drafting off of the success of another popular premium mattress—the innerspring Saatva. The people behind Saatva thought it could bring the same quality at a good price with a memory foam mattress. Loom & Leaf was born.

They took aim at Tempur-Pedic, the granddaddy of memory foam since the 1990s, and took aim with a mattress with similar characteristics and materials that still costs 70 percent less. Loom & Leaf says they did it by eliminating the markup of retail outlets.

But they didn’t eliminate details or innovation. The foams are dense and cool due to cooling gels or construction that encourages airflow. Or they’re luxurious and multi-layered to provide support and contouring to relieve pressure.

Loom & Leaf also took the extra step to make the new mattress in two levels of firmness: relaxed firm and firm.

Premium luxury at a significantly lower price. That, in and of itself, is an innovation. Take a closer look.

HIGHLIGHTS

Here are some features of the Loom & Leaf mattress:

  • Loom & Leaf competes with iComfort & Tempur-Pedic, but costs 50-70 percent less.
  • Rare memory foam offering with multiple firmness options: relaxed firm or firm.
  • Free in-home set up and removal of old mattress.
  • Most of the foams are eco-friendly and CertiPUR-US certified
  • Every level in the mattress has some element to keep the whole mattress cool.
  • Can be used with an adjustable base.
  • Plant-based foams sourced in the USA.
  • Warranty makes sense, eliminates arguments between customer & mattress company.
  • Free shipping and white glove setup service.
  • 120-night trial period.

Their tagline: "The quality of luxury retail with the convenience & savings of online shopping."

FEATURES

Type

Loom & Leaf is a memory foam mattress infused with cooling gel. It’s available in either relaxed firm or firm.

Cooling

Every layer of the Loom & Leaf includes some material or construction element that should dissipate heat to keep the mattress cool. There’s the cooling gel in the top layer, the convoluted structure of one of the support layers, and cooling gel laminated right at the lumbar region of the back.

People with this mattress should not have to worry about overheating. But there was still some warmth to contend with during tests done on this part of the mattress. The Loom & Leaf will heat up some, though not nearly as much as traditional memory foam.

Firmness

Loom & Leaf comes in two firmness levels. Relaxed firm will appeal to most customers—those who like sleeping on their side, back or stomach and those who normally toss and turn. Firm will appeal to those seeking a firmer option, like back and stomach sleepers or anyone whose doctor told them to get a firmer mattress.

Any mattress needs to have enough support to keep you from saving into the mattress without being so hard that it throws your spine out of alignment. L&L did a good job of keeping the spine in a straight line.

Edge support

Loom & Leaf doesn’t measure up well when asked to support weight on the edges. It’s a little bit harder to sleep on the edge and a little bit harder to sit on the edge without feeling like you’re going to topple forward.

Motion transfer

Ironically, for a luxury foam mattress, the Loom & Leaf registers a lot of movement. This is a problem if you sleep with a partner and have different work schedules. You may wake someone up or get worked up because you can feel quite a bit when the other side gets jostled.

CONSTRUCTION

Both firmness options of the Loom & Leaf are similarly constructed.

The first layer is a breathable, organic cotton covering treated with a natural thistle flame retardant. It’s quilted with a 5/8’ slab of memory foam. This will keep you cool and safe.

The second layer is a 2-inch foam layer with a proprietary Cooling Spinal Gel injected into it. The foam itself uses a convoluted design and an inverted design for air flow along with the cooling gel for three times the cooling. The gel is laminated right at the lower back area of the mattress so there is a cooling zone embedded straight into the mattress.

The third layer is a 2.5-inch single piece of substantial 5-pound density, visco-elastic memory foam that contours to your body shape. It’s also naturally cool.

The fourth layer is a 2-inch loft pad sandwiched the support base and the memory to support what those layers do and act as a transition between them.

The fifth layer is 5.5-inch support base. It is high density foam. It’s supports all the layers above it.

 

American Foam: The Loom and Leaf is an all foam mattress sourced entirely from the USA.

CONCLUSION

The Loom & Leaf mattress represents an ambitious attempt to sell a premium mattress in a new-fangled and cheaper way. The memory foam unit loads up on the details then sheds the retail markup to make luxury affordable.

Online direct-to-consumer mattress companies have the advantage of being able to adapt quickly. In this case, Loom & Leaf went ahead and built two versions of the mattress—relaxed firm and firm— to meet a wider range of firmness preference.

What those customers actually get from the Loom & Leaf are multiple layers of cooling effects and multiple layers and densities of foam to provide both support and contouring to the body.

Overall, the Loom & Leaf feels like a traditional memory foam mattress that lets you sink into the mattress without swallowing you and still cuddling the contours of your body so you’re not sore from pressure on hips and shoulders.

The mattress won’t retain heat like older models of memory foam mattresses because there are gel layers and a convoluted layer that allows air to flow through and take away hot spots.

Some customer concerns early on have been with sagging in the middle of the mattress. Loom & Leaf have built in support around the edges so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the tradeoff is some sagging in the middle.

Bottom line is if the mattress seems like a good fit for you, the side sleeper with a taste for the finer things and a wallet for the less expensive things, then give it a try. You’d have 120 days to decide for sure.
