Our beds don’t start out life in a factory, but on a 300-acre farm in North Yorkshire. Here we rear sheep for their wool and grow the fibres that go into our mattress fillings. We don’t do this because it is easier. It takes us a year to grow the ingredients for one mattress. We do it because better ingredients make a better bed. With over 100 years of experience, we’ve learned that if we're going to make a beautiful bed, we've got to do it all ourselves.
A good night’s sleep doesn’t happen by accident and at Harrison, there are no shortcuts to quality. We carefully select the finest natural fillings for our luxury mattresses, so it is only right that the same attention to detail goes into our British craftsmanship.
At our factory in Yorkshire, every mattress, divan, headboard and bed frame is hand made by our skilled crafters. From upholstering each headboard, to tailoring and hand tufting all of our mattresses, each bed in our factory is crafted to the customer's individual order.
In tailor-making a Harrison bed, our most valuable tools are a set of hands. These are not just any hands. They belong to craftsmen like Andy Davis. In one week Andy will stitch our unique mattresses using a 12-inch needle and a lot of patience. After doing this for 25 years, he's got it down to a fine art. An art that a machine will never be able to master.
These time-honoured techniques have often been passed from generation to generation, resulting in beautiful, bespoke beds that are of the highest quality and represent the bed in British manufacturing.
