Hastens Beds

Company profile

Hästens has been run by the same family since the mid 19th century. Before Bell and Edison made their epoch-making inventions, we at Hästens were already working hard. Hästens was originally a saddlery. In those days, saddlers also made mattresses. The first Hästens mattress was probably made in 1852, when the current owner Jan Ryde’s great-great-grandfather laid the foundations for the family business.

Today, Hästens beds continue to be hand-made using the finest natural materials. Cotton, horsehair, flax and wool are materials that breathe. Therefore, you will sleep comfortably and naturally in a bed from Hästens.

Our view is the same today as it was when we began making bed mattresses in the 1800s - only the finest natural materials and the best craftsmanship should be used. When your aim is to build the world’s most comfortable beds, no other manufacturing method will do. Craftsmanship and quality are two keywords at Hästens where beds are still made by hand using only natural filling material. Hästens is exclusive among bed manufacturers by having all of their beds awarded the Swedish Swan environmental certification, as well as attaining the standards set by Oeko-Tex and Möbelfakta for home and public environment. Hästens beds are appreciated by many from palace to cottage, since 1952 Hästens has had the honour of being the supplier of beds to His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.

Hästens is currently established in 25 markets and continues to expand organically in existing markets as well as initiating sales in new markets. The part of the business which is represented by exports is steadily rising, from just 4 percent in 1994 to 71 percent in 2005. In April of 2006 Hästens was awarded the ‘Grand Export Prize’ by His Majesty the King of Sweden in recognition of its successes.

Try all of the Hästens models in the various levels of firmness and you will find the best bed for you. The different models exist in order to provide for every individual’s needs and wishes.

We also strive to offer the very best bed in each respective price group. You should have a good lie down and let your body choose which bed is right for you!

To compliment our top end beds, Hästens offers a range of luxury linen, pillows, duvets and other accessories. Linens range between 600 to 800 thread count Egyptian cotton.

Hästens beds are the only totally natural beds available in South Africa. They are 90% eco-friendly and are hand-made using the finest natural materials. Nature is alive - and so are the materials they work with.

Hästens beds are made exclusively from hard-wearing natural materials, such as horsehair, flax, wool and pine from the forests of northern Sweden.
