Fair Pricing

Setting prices at Silk & Snow follows a simple rule, which is to charge what we need, not what we can. We price based on what it costs to make a product and build in a fair profit. We do not spend significant amounts on marketing or paying affiliate commissions, and prefer to let our product speak for itself.

Transparency

Silk & Snow uses premium materials to build a high-quality mattress and we are upfront about the materials we use. We believe strongly in transparency of what is used to make our mattress. Endy and Casper do not disclose the densities of every single foam layer used in their mattress.

Innovative Cover Design

The Silk & Snow mattress cover is made with an advanced textile, infused with a pure natural silver that prevents the growth of bacteria. To make things even easier for you, it is designed with a 360˚ zipper that allows you to easily remove only the top panel for laundering.

Transparency in Foam Quality
Foam or hybrid mattresses are typically constructed with at least one layer of memory foam in the comfort system. The support core, which are the lower layers of the mattress, are almost always made of high-density polyfoam. The most important layer of the mattress is usually the upper layers which are usually made of specialty memory foam and make a significant difference in the comfort and pressure point relief that is provided by the mattress. This is why the upper-most layer of the mattress is usually referred to as the “comfort” layer.

If all things about the foam type remained equal, then the higher density foam is usually considered more durable and will keep your mattress feeling the same and providing the optimal support over a longer period of time. Foam mattresses will soften over time with usage and inevitably will not provide the same support that was once there. This is why the density of the different foam layers (especially the top layer) is worth understanding.

At Silk & Snow, we believe that the customer should have full transparency in the specifications of the materials used in the construction of the mattress, as we stand by the quality of our products. As an example, the top layer of our Silk & Snow mattress is made with a 4 lb gel memory foam, which is much higher than many of the other foams used by other mattress retailers.

When we first reached out to Endy in September of 2017, they confirmed that the density of the top layer of their mattress was “2 inches of a 2.5lb proprietary Endy Comfort Foam”. However, when we reached out to Endy again more recently, they no longer provided a definitive answer to the density of top layer. This is the response we have been provided but if transparency in the details of the materials used in the mattress (such as the details of the foam densities) are important for you, then we suggest you reach out to Endy and Casper to obtain the most up-to-date details.
Cover Design
Endy Mattress Cover

The Endy Mattress cover is made of two types of fabrics. The top panel is a white diamond patterned fabric that is made primarily of polyester. The bottom portion of the cover is a grey upholstery grade fabric. If you lift the mattress, you can unzip the fabric cover using the zipper found underneath the mattress. The Endy mattress cover is machine washable in warm water (40°C). It is recommended that you wash the cover alone to avoid colour transfer.

Casper Mattress Cover

Similar to the Endy Mattress, the Casper (Original) mattress cover is made of two types of fabrics. The top panel uses a white pin-dot patterned fabric that is made primarily of polyester. The fabric used for the border of the Casper mattress cover is a heavy-duty, polyester and spandex fabric. Casper does not recommend machine washing the Casper mattress cover, as the cover may shrink. Instead, they suggest that you unzip and remove the cover and gently dab and spot clean with a mild detergent. The cover can be hand-washed cold and then air-dried, since any heat might cause the cover to shrink.

Silk & Snow Cover

The S&S Mattress was designed with a 360˚ zipper for easy removal of the top of the mattress cover for laundering. Most other mattress covers are designed where the zipper can only be accessed at the bottom of the mattress, and the entire cover of the mattress needs to be removed in order to be machine washed.

All Silk & Snow mattress covers are made with an advanced textile, infused with a pure natural silver that prevents the growth of bacteria. Silver is naturally antibacterial and inhibits the growth of bacteria, maintaining a cleaner and fresher feeling and limits odors where you sleep. The cover has been tested to maintain the same antibacterial effectiveness even after 100 washes
Hybrid or Foam?
Memory foam mattresses have become very popular due to the popularization of mattress-in-a-box retailers, as the technology to compress a memory foam mattress was much more readily available. However, there are still a number of people who enjoy the traditional feel of a hybrid spring or coil mattress. Silk & Snow offers you a choice of either an all foam mattress and a hybrid pocketed coil mattress that is also compressed into a small compact box for easy shipping and moving.

Memory foam mattress is viscoelastic foam which was originally developed under a Nasa contract in the 1970s to improve the cushions for pilots. Over time, it became used more in medical settings due to due the improved pressure point relief and support it provided. A memory foam mattress combines a layer or more of memory foam with other polyurethane foam layers.


What Is A Hybrid Mattress?

Traditionally, innerspring mattress only contain coils while a memory foam mattress would be constructed entirely of different foam layers. Hybrids combine the best features of memory foam and coil mattresses, using both materials. A hybrid mattress is an ideal choice for those who like the feel of a traditional spring mattress but need the pressure relief and support provided by foam. The combination of body contouring and back support make hybrids an excellent option for those in the higher weight ranges.

A hybrid mattress provides a more traditional and familiar feel, while also incorporating some of the improved pressure point relief and support benefits of memory foam. Hybrid mattresses usually have better airflow and provide better support for individuals in higher weight ranges.
Edge Support
Edge support is the amount of firmness and rigidity a mattress provides around the edges. Many individuals who like to sit or sleep near the edge of the mattress value additional edge support, as it means there is less sagging and the feeling of rolling off the edge of the mattress. Although edge support does not affect the feel of a mattress, many people feel that it is important simply due to familiarity.

Edge support is less common in foam mattresses such as the Endy mattress or the all foam versions of The Casper (original), Casper Wave, or Casper Essential mattresses. Edge support is commonly a feature of coil mattresses as they are usually designed with a firm perimeter made of either coils and foam.

Silk & Snow offers edge support in the S&S Hybrid mattress model. Similarly, Casper has recently launched a more expensive Hybrid version of The Casper Wave and Casper (original) which offers edge support. There are differences in the technology used to create edge support in the Silk & Snow Hybrid vs the Casper Hybrid models.

The S&S Hybrid achieves edge support by using a foam encasement that encloses the pocket coil unit in the mattress. The foam encasement is extra firm and provides rigidity and structure for the entire mattress.

The higher-end Casper Wave Hybrid achieves edge support similar to a S&S Hybrid mattress by having a firm foam perimeter around the mattress. The Casper Hybrid achieves edge support by using a heavier wire gauge (i.e. a thicker and firmer wire) in the coil springs that surround the edge of the mattress. The drawback of using firmer coils around the perimeter is that you can feel the coils in the outer edge when running your hands along the side of the mattress.
CertiPUR-US Certified
What is it?

CertiPUR-US® is a program that ensures flexible polyurethane foam meets standards for content, emissions and durability and that it’s been analyzed by independent, accredited laboratories. Today, foam producers from all countries may participate in the program, as long as they meet rigorous certification guidelines.

Why it’s important?

Essentially, the CertiPUR-US® program provides baseline performance standards and criteria for foam products. Not only does this certification ensure that you are getting a product that has been vetted for quality, it’s also an indication that your mattress was made without the use of ozone depleters, formaldehyde, heavy metals, or toxic flame retardants.
Company Overview
Endy (formerly known as Endy Sleep) is a mattress-in-the-box brand that was introduced to the Canadian market in 2015. Endy is a subsidiary of Canadian sleep retailer Sleep Country and has been hoping to recreate the success of Casper who originally found success marketing a single type of mattress-in-a-box online. Endy offers an expanded product lineup that includes the Endy Pillow, Endy Sheets, Endy Bed Frame, Endy Mattress Protector, Endy Duvet, and Endy Duvet Cover.

Casper is an example of the effectiveness of strong marketing. Though the practice of compressing a mattress and shipping it in a box has been around for a while, Casper was one of the early brands that popularized the concept of buying a mattress-in-a-box. Casper is a US based company that launched in 2014 and has since expanded to Canada. Their product catalog has expanded from a single-firmness, ‘one-size-fits-all’ mattress, to a broad selection of mattresses, sleep accessories, and bedroom furniture such as Adjustable Bed Frames, Platform Beds, Upholstered Bed Frames, and foundations.

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 and 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.

Silk & Snow’s brand is built on quality and transparency of all the materials used in the construction of the mattress from the foam densities, all the way to the exact sourcing of where the foam was poured, where the fabric was spun and the final stitching of the cover. The raw materials used to make Silk & Snow mattresses, such as the foam and fabric are made locally within Toronto, Ontario so that the the quality of the supply of the raw materials can be closely managed.
