Silk & Snow vs Endy
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.
Endy (formerly known as Endy Sleep) is a mattress-in-the-box brand that was introduced to the Canadian market in 2015. As of 2018, Endy is now a subsidiary of Canadian sleep retailer Sleep Country. Endy offers an expanded product lineup that includes the Endy Pillow, Endy Sheets, Endy Bed Frame, Mattress Protector, Weighted Blanket, Duvet, and Duvet Cover. Endy has partnered with Urban Barn locations and other select retailers across Canada.
Does Weight Mean Quality?
Foam density is measured as the weight in pounds for a cubic foot of foam. Generally, lower density foams are less expensive to produce since less materials are used in making a lower density foam layer. While density doesn’t give you the whole story, it does give you an indication of the durability and comfort. When an older mattress starts to fail, it usually means that the foam has softened and lost its resiliency and ability to provide support. Lower density foam tends to soften and break down faster than a higher density foam, leading to a shorter lifespan.
Silk & Snow
At Silk & Snow, we are very proud of the quality of materials used in making each of our mattresses and take pride in being entirely transparent with the detailed specifications of each layer in the construction of our mattresses. The S&S Mattress is a popular choice as it is designed with a premium 4 lb memory foam top layer, which is one of the highest density foams available in the Canadian market.
The foam density information for the top comfort layer is not available on Endy’s website and representatives noted that they do not provide this information. However, the overall weight of the mattress is an indication of overall foam densities, then the Endy queen size mattress boxed is 70 lbs and the overall weight of a S&S Mattress (queen size) boxed is 76 lbs.
The S&S Mattress was designed with cleanliness in mind, with a 360 degree zipper that allows you to easily remove the top of the mattress cover for washing. Along with the innovative cover design, the mattress cover is infused with antimicrobial technology, which inhibits the growth of bacteria. This maintains a cleaner and fresher feeling where you sleep. The cover has been tested to maintain the same antibacterial effectiveness even after 100 washes.
The Endy Mattress cover is also machine washable in cold water. It is recommended that you let the cover air dry.
Coil Hybrid vs Foam
Hybrid mattresses are usually constructed with multiple layers of foam (in the case of our S&S Hybrid) or natural latex (in the case of our S&S Organic) on top of a pocketed coil base. Pocketed coils are individual coils enclosed in cloth and separated from one another, which allows for better motion isolation and body contouring that are typically features better known in memory foam mattresses. Pocket coils are also known to provide a more traditional feel with better breathability that would benefit those that sleep hot. It is also more suitable for heavier body types.
Most other bed-in-a-box brands such as Endy, only offer a single all foam mattress design, as memory foam mattresses are usually easier to compress and ship in a small compact box. A memory foam mattress usually provides better cradling comfort, deep support, and reduced pressure points. However, we don’t believe that memory foam mattresses would meet the needs of heavyset sleepers or individuals who tend to sleep hot.
