Schramm

 

 

For three generations, SCHRAMM workshops have specialised in highest sleep comfort handmade in Germany. Having been founded in 1923 as an upholstery and saddlery workshop, SCHRAMM workshops have focused on manufacturing high quality mattresses and base mattresses since the mid-1960s. Several own bed creations and fully integrated boxspring systems follow. Entirely comprehensive sleep comfort which is enhanced consistently. 
Apart from classy materials and the perfect tailoring to the user’s needs almost 100 hours of master craftsman work are required for the premium bed GRAND CRU. According to the best padding tradition, the patented triple mattress system composed of the divan, the intermediate mattress and the top mattress, is manually and elaborately braced and tied with hourglass springs. 

In striving for highest quality and ever more perfect solutions we never forget who we owe our success to and who is in the centre of all our concerns: our customers. Our entire thinking and acting, our innovations and our passion focus on them – far away from nowadays popular mass production. This is the reason why we have remained faithful to our handcraft for 90 years: Handmade in Germany is a promise which we renew daily. With our extensive experience, with our entire expertise and with all our energy.

      

       

What do you mean by spring suspension?
High spring suspension gives you the perfect comfort feeling. We heat all of our springs in a furnace, this makes them hard and ductile. Heating the spring keeps it from loosing it reset forces and provides for continuous resilience for the spring. This takes time, but treating the springs like this makes them mature, like the maturing of a good wine!  The world is hectic but we spend time to make a better product. Heating of the springs is an old technique dating back to 50-70 years ago, we now live in a much faster world with newer technology but this is a time tested method.
 Is it really true that you sew each feather one by one into the pocket?
Yes we still sew each feather in one by one, this is true handcraftsmanship, and alters the spring power and in turn makes the mattress fit better to the body.   Our body weight is not evenly distributed so because of this the spring power must be able to adapt to this. For example a swimmer with broad shoulders would need their shoulders to sink further into the mattress to achieve the most comfortable sleep position with a straight spine in a lateral sleep position. You are able to reach a better function with hand craftsmanship, this is unique to us our competitors don’t take the time to do this anymore.  

 

 

 

Can you tell me a little bit about why the mattress are organic?

We are not completely against synthetic materials, we just feel that natural materials give you a more natural feeling but for allergy sufferers for example synthetic fibres can be better.

Schramm do not use latex or foambeds, is there a reason for this? 

We do use latex we use Talay latex, a thin layer on the top of our mattress’s, this is the best latex you can get and allows good circulation of air through the mattress and as well as allowing springs to spring back into shape.  Animal hair and natural fibres are the best materials for making beds but they don’t come move back into shape like latex, the Talay latex ensures you have a better bed for longer.

 

 

 

 

How long does it take to make one your bed systems from start to finish? 

It takes 100 - 150 hours, it is very labour intensive work.

Can a customer have any parts of the bed and mattress made bespoke to them?

The beds are all made bespoke to suit the customers taste as well as to suit there personal comfort level.  There are various things that effect the mattress spring strength one of them being the mattress spring power the weight of the person.  This can all be customized to suit the particular sleeper. As well as this the aesthetics of the bed can be made bespoke say the size of the headboard or what fabric it is made out off.
