Company Overview

Silk & Snow

Silk & Snow is an e-commerce bedding company based in Toronto, Ontario that is 100% Canadian owned and operated. Silk & Snow originally launched in 2017 with a single mattress (the original S&S Mattress). Based on the popularity of the original S&S Mattress and listening to the feedback from customers, Silk & Snow introduced the S&S Hybrid mattress, which provided better breathability, edge support, and a traditional feel that many customers are already familiar with. The S&S Organic mattress was introduced in 2020 as an all-natural option, combining GOLS certified organic latex with pocketed spring coils for unrivaled support and durability.

Silk & Snow now offers a full line of curated sleep products including a pillow, protector, duvets, bedding, bed frames, weighted blankets, and throws. Manufactured thoughtfully using high quality, traceable materials, Silk & Snow products are available for testing in our Toronto showroom and available for purchase online.

Casper

Casper was founded in January 2014 in New York City, New York by Philip Krim, Neil Parikh, T. Luke Sherwin, Jeff Chapin, and Gabriel Flateman, with the goal of delivering mattresses that could be easily ordered online and conveniently shipped, right to the customers doorstep. In November 2014, Casper expanded its operations to offer their products to Canadian sleepers.

Casper currently has an expanded product line including pillows, protector, duvets, bedding, bed frames, and accessories. Casper has partnered with select retailers across US and “Sleep Shops” are located in cities across the US and Canada.

Transparency in the Materials

When shopping for a memory foam mattress, it is important to know the density of each layer of foam as it usually gives an indication as to whether the quality of the material matches the price of the mattress. Foam density is measured as the weight in pounds per cubic foot of foam. Lower density foam tends to soften and break down faster than higher density foam and for this reason, the density of the foam is a good indicator of the durability and support that a mattress will give you.

Understanding both the composition and the quality of the foam layers is also important from a transparency standpoint. Consumers should be armed with the information that will help them get the most out of their mattress over the long term. In the past, brick and mortar mattress sellers would rely heavily on the "touch and feel" of a mattress, as this was all that customers could gauge. The growing popularity of online mattress shopping has led to more accessible information on mattress construction and the specifications (such as the foam density) in each of the layers. Even though disclosing this information should be important for mattress retailers, there are many who don’t.

Silk & Snow

At Silk & Snow, we are very proud of the quality of materials used in making each of our mattresses and transparently provide the detailed specifications of each layer in the construction of our mattresses. We meticulously source each layer of foam from manufacturers within the country who we know and trust to create luxurious comfort that lasts. At Silk & Snow, we strictly use 4lb High-Density Memory Foam in our S&S mattresses. 4lb memory foam ensures your mattress is not only more comfortable, but also built to last.

Casper

Casper does not disclose the density of the foams they use.

Mattress Types

The mattress buying decision usually starts with whether you prefer an all-foam mattress or a hybrid coil mattress.

An all-foam mattress is usually constructed with multiple layers of memory foam and polyfoam. All-foam mattresses are usually better suited for average sized body types or those who require better pressure point relief.

Pocketed Coil hybrid mattresses are usually constructed with multiple layers of memory foam or latex on top of a pocketed coil base. Though memory foam mattresses are better known for having zero motion transfer, pocketed coil bases also provide a reasonable amount of isolation. Pocket coils are also known to provide a more traditional feel with better breathability that would benefit those that sleep hot. Individuals with heavier body types will want to consider Casper hybrid vs Silk and Snow hybrid models for better support.

Silk & Snow

Silk & Snow offers a choice of an all-foam S&S Mattress, the S&S Hybrid coil mattress, or the S&S Organic latex mattress. The S&S Mattress is designed using a premium 4 lb memory foam layer. The S&S Hybrid mattress is a hybrid pocketed coil mattress which uses a premium memory foam layer supported by a pocketed coil base. The S&S Organic mattress has 100% GOLS certified organic latex combined with GOTS certified organic cotton, naturally fire retardant New Zealand Joma wool, and innovative pocketed spring coils for a supportive sleep, completely crafted by nature.

Casper

Casper has a total of 5 mattress designs on their website. Their most popular mattress is the Casper Original mattress, which has gone through a number of design changes over the years. The Casper Original is a 3-layer, zoned mattress with a top layer of breathable perforated polyurethane foam, a transition layer of memory foam, and a base layer of polyurethane foam. The Original Hybrid version features pocketed coils at the base as well. Of all Casper mattress types, the Casper Original and Hybrid Original would be the most comparable to the S&S Mattress and Hybrid Mattress.

The Casper Element mattress, replaces the former Casper Essential mattress, as their cheapest model. The Casper Element mattress has a 2-layer design featuring a top layer of breathable perforated polyurethane foam, with a base layer of polyurethane foam. The Casper Element mattress is 10" thick and is the thinnest mattress in the Casper line.

The Casper Nova Hybrid mattress is the newest model in the Casper line. Introduced in March 2020, it was marketed as their "most plush" mattress. The Casper Nova Hybrid mattress is priced in between the Casper Original and the Wave Hybrid. The Nova Hybrid mattress follows a similar theme within the entire line of mattresses, by using a top layer of perforated foam. This lies on top of a transitional layer of zoned polyurethane foam, a third layer of zoned memory foam, and a support layer of durable pocket coils encased in polyurethane foam.

The Casper Wave Hybrid is their highest priced model and is only offered in a hybrid models (previously, the Casper Wave mattress was offered an all-foam version but this no longer appears to be the case). The Casper Wave Hybrid features a top layer of breathable perforated polyurethane foam, a second layer of natural latex, a third layer of zoned memory foam, a fourth layer of polyurethane foam with gel pods, and a base layer of polyurethane foam. The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress is designed to have continuous ergonomic zones with gel pods.

360° Removable Cover

What is it?

Our memory foam mattress comes with a fully-removable mattress cover that zips off easily. This cover is 100% machine washable.

Why it’s Important

The importance of a hygienic sleep cannot be overstated. Considering how long we intend to keep our mattresses, having the option to machine-wash the top layer can help to keep it in excellent shape down the line. Our fully-removable mattress cover makes it easier than ever to keep your mattress clean on a more consistent basis. Simply zip it off, throw it in the laundry, and zip it back on. It’s that simple.

Casper mattresses do not offer a removable mattress cover option.

Antimicrobial Cover

What is it?

Our S&S Mattress and S&S Hybrid mattresses feature a premium antimicrobial mattress cover that uses pure silver to prevent the growth of unwanted bacteria.

Why it’s Important

Silver has long been used in medical and practical applications as an effective way to kill harmful bacteria. Its natural prevention of harmful bacteria has led to its use in water purification and in preventing infections. This effective bacteria-resistant material is now available in one of the most utilized household items. Our antimicrobial mattress cover comes with silver woven right into the fabric and it’s been tested for effectiveness even after 100 washes.

Manufacturing

Silk & Snow

Silk & Snow is proud to be 100% Canadian owned and operated, and even more proud that our mattresses are the products of Canadian expertise, ingenuity and innovation. Every Silk & Snow mattress is crafted and assembled by people who are just as obsessed about mattress design as we are. We partner with some of the oldest Canadian owned and operated manufacturers in the bedding industry.

Casper

Unfortunately, it is not exactly clear where Casper Mattresses are produced. On the FAQ section of Casper’s website, in response to the question; “Where are Casper Mattresses made?” they claim “All our mattresses are designed by our award-winning team in California.” Of course, this does not answer the question of where the mattresses are actually made.

Price

The S&S Mattress and S&S Hybrid mattress provide a comfortable, luxurious sleep for an extremely competitive price. For those who are interested, we also offer 0%, no fee financing plans that can take the sting out of the upfront cost. And, unlike our competitors, we allow the use of coupons with our financing plans. The price of the Silk & Snow vs Casper Mattress reflects the promotions, discounts, coupons, sales, or ongoing promos that were offered on the site at the time that this was written. It is not based on any third party informational or mattress review sites.
