Royal Pedic Hand Tufting ProcessThe inner padding is hand tufted, compressing it for exceptional back support and minimizing body impressions.
Each mattress is meticulously hand tufted with European tufting straps to pre-compress the cotton padding for orthopedic back support. Hand tufting is a process Royal Pedic's founder learned while working for Heals of London, a premiere mattress maker, who at the time made mattresses for the royal family of England.
Most other mattresses are not tufted. The padding materials in these "generic construction" mattresses are merely secured to the perimeter edges of the mattress. The advantage to tufting is less body impressions in the mattress because the padding is pre-compressed with the tufting straps, rather than just resting on the surface.
