The Loom & Leaf mattress is manufactured by Saatva, Inc., which also sells the Saatva innerspring mattress and the Zenhaven latex mattress.
Some of the key strengths of the Loom & Leaf include:
- Thick, high-density comfort layers: the Loom & Leaf mattress does not skimp on its memory foam comfort layers. The mattress features 4.5” of high-density memory foams, and this outpaces many similarly-priced options on the market today.
- Strong customer service: Saatva, Inc. has an excellent reputation for customer service across all of their products, including the Loom & Leaf mattress. They also offer a 120 night sleep trial, which is longer than that available from many other brands.
Potential drawbacks for the Loom & Leaf mattress include:
- Potential weak spots in support layers: while the comfort layers of this mattress offer impressive specifications, the company is vague about the details for the bottom two foam layers. This complicates the ability to evaluate the mattress as a whole and the ability to comparison shop.
- Sleep trial is not truly risk-free: this mattress comes with white glove delivery, but if you decide to return the mattress during the sleep trial, $99 will be withheld from your refund.
Loom & Leaf Pricing
Loom & Leaf offers 6 different mattress sizes and two different firmness options — Relaxed Firm and Firm. There is no price difference between the two firmness options. You can view the price for each size in the table below.

About the Loom & Leaf Mattress
Loom & Leaf Mattress Specifications
The Loom & Leaf Mattress is composed of 5 layers. The top layer is an organic cotton cover that is ⅝” thick. The second layer is 2” of gel-infused memory foam with a density of 4 PCF. The third layer is 2.5” of memory foam with a density of 5 PCF. The fourth layer is 2” of transition foam, and the bottom is 5.5” of support foam.
The ILD for the foams in the Loom & Leaf mattress are not listed for each individual layer, but the company states that ILDs in the mattress overall range from 14 to 44. This likely varies with the specific firmness choice.
Loom & Leaf also does not specifically state the density of the bottom two foam layers of the mattress. Without full transparency on these specifications, it can be difficult to comparison shop and to confidently estimate the durability and quality of the Loom & Leaf mattress.
Where It’s Made
Loom & Leaf’s mattresses are manufactured in the USA.
Sleep Trial / Refunds
The Loom & Leaf comes with a 120 night sleep trial. If you don’t like the mattress, you can return it within those 120 days. The company will pick up the mattress and offer a refund minus $99 for return transportation.
Unlike most other foam mattresses that are sold as a bed in a box, the Loom & Leaf mattress is not compressed after it is manufactured. Instead, delivery includes setup of the mattress. They also offer free haul-away of your old mattress.
After your 120 night sleep trial, the Loom & Leaf comes with a 15-year non-prorated warranty. For the first two years of the warranty, Loom & Leaf will replace any mattress suffering from defects in workmanship and materials at no charge. For years 3-15, Loom & Leaf will repair and re-cover the mattress with a transportation cost of $99 each way. The company also offers a Fairness Replacement Option, under which they will replace the mattress at a percentage of the original purchase price depending on the year of the warranty.

Loom & Leaf is made by Saatva, Inc., which has a strong reputation for its customer service and for transparency regarding its products and services. Saatva, Inc. has been in business for over 6 years and has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
The Loom & Leaf has generally performed well in user reviews and in external testing. However, the specifications for the base of the mattress are not nearly as strong as those of the comfort layers. Only more time on the market will tell whether this creates issues for the overall durability or performance of the Loom & Leaf mattress.
The Loom & Leaf mattress has 4.5” of high-density memory foam that makes up its comfort layers, and this provides an extremely supportive material for most sleepers. The foam used by Loom & Leaf is designed to respond to each individual’s pressure points without causing an undue amount of sinking into the mattress.
As discussed previously, we have some concerns about the density of the support foams used in the base of the mattress. Lower-density foams are more prone to indentation and sagging. That said, the strength of the comfort layers should help to reduce the amount of impact that is put onto the base foams for most sleepers.
Overall, like most of its competitors, until the Loom & Leaf mattress has been on the market for 8-10 years or longer, we will lack hard data about its lifespan and durability under conditions of daily use.
You can view how the Loom & Leaf firmness options align with the normal firmness scale in the following image:
Preventing motion transfer is one of the key strengths of memory foam, and as a result, the Loom & Leaf mattress should offer sufficient motion isolation for the vast majority of sleepers.
The Loom & Leaf mattresses are not compressed for delivery, and as a result, any offgassing that occurs takes place in the factory and not in your home. No significant smells are associated with the Loom & Leaf mattresses.
The Loom & Leaf mattress does not have significant heat retention issues for most people. While memory foam can cause people to sleep hot if there is extensive sink and contouring, this is rarely reported with the Loom & Leaf.
The top foam layer of the Loom & Leaf mattress uses gel-infused memory foam, though reviews are mixed about whether this actually has a significant effect on heat retention.
Even though it has less sink that traditional memory foams, the Loom & Leaf mattress still responds to pressure in a way that can make movement in bed more difficult than on most innerspring mattresses. While this is unlikely to pose meaningful obstacles to sexual activity, latex or innerspring mattresses are usually considered to be the optimal choice for sex.
