About the Company
Customer satisfaction can tell you a lot about a company, and a five-star review indicates a high degree of acceptance. Saatva has achieved in excess of 15,000 five star reviews by their customers, and they are ranked by Forbes magazine at number 68 of the top 100 promising companies in the United States. Since they were founded in 2010, Saatva has grown to operate 19 factories throughout the United States, and they ship from coast to coast. When you work with their customers service representatives, you can rest assured that they don’t work on a commission. This better ensures you won’t be pushed into a sale you aren’t confident in. They have 135 fulfillment centers that are responsible for the delivery of your mattress.
The Beauty of In-Home Setup
Whether you have physical limitations that can make it difficult for you to manage heavy items or simply avoid such tasks, you’ll be glad to know you don’t have to unbox your Saatva product. Their mattresses are set up in your home by your delivery personnel. In my case, the delivery guys were professional, quick, and to-the-point. It took them less than 30 minutes to get the mattress from the truck to being completely set up in my bedroom.
Saatva’s Lineal Base Option
Loom and Leaf is compatible with an adjustable frame, and I opted for their Lineal base. I have been very satisfied with the base as it offers a number of neat features including a head and foot massage, and I’d definitely recommend you check it out. Depending on the size, it can be added for $1,199 – $2,498. A few other features it offers that you can take advantage of include:
- One-touch remote
- Zero gravity support
- Wall-hugging design
- Wave, leg, and head massage
Loom and Leaf Organic Cotton Cover
I always like to start at the top, so let’s take a look at the Loom and Leaf organic cotton cover. It’s quilted with a 5/8” foam layer and Saatva’s natural thistle flame retardant. I love the way the mini foam layer makes the cover feel. It’s really soft, and it also features a unique design that feels really nice. The quilting pattern is very compact and tight, and it’s much denser in the middle while the top and bottom are spread out more. The purpose is to provide better support in the areas that need it. From an aesthetic standpoint, I love the way this cover looks. Aside from the top pattern, I also like the color of the side panels and trim. The mattress also features two handles on each side, and this makes it really easy to move around should you ever need to do so.
Durability You Can Count On
Some consumers are in the market for a mattress to get them by a few years, at which point they plan to buy something more long-lasting. This could be the case if you’re on a tight budget or are buying for a small child who will soon outgrow the product. However, if you’re looking for something that will stand the test of time, Loom and Leaf delivers the level of quality you’re looking for.
Ultra-Luxury Memory Foam: A Look at Layer Construction
When it comes to memory foam, you want a density of between four and five pounds to ensure you can expect the highest durability, and Loom and Leaf delivers. Starting with the top comfort layer, we find Saatva’s patented gel-on-gel design that provides a cool, supportive sleep environment in three ways.
For starters, the 2 inch convoluted 4 lb. top memory foam layer uses a “gel-swirl” construction technique that provides even distribution. This allows it to provide a cooling sensation throughout the foam layer. It uses an inverted foam tip design which allows greater air-flow and circulation.
Finally, Loom and Leaf’s cooling gel spinal panel is laminated onto the top layer for increased cooling and spinal support. The cooling gel used is typically found in burn units and hospitals, so you can rest assured in its purity. It’s laminated to the flat side of the convoluted foam and placed in the lumbar section of the mattress to maintain a targeted cool zone to the area of the body that generally retains heat.
Next, we arrive at the 2 ½ inch layer found at the heart of the mattress that offers deep contouring support. The density at this layer is 5 pounds, and this indicates superior durability. Furthermore, since it’s CertiPUR-US certified, you can rest assured that it has met rigorous testing requirements when it comes to physical performance, indoor emissions and environmental stewardship.
Moving further down, we find the 2 inch transition loft pad which acts to allow the layers above and below to work together to provide support, conforming properties, and healthy comfort. Finally, the 5 ½ inch high-density foam core acts as the foundation and support for the layers above.
Two Firmness Options
Loom and Leaf offers two firmness options. Their flagship comfort level is relaxed and firm, and this is the model I received. You can also choose their firm mattress. This could be a good option if you carry a lot of weight or prefer to sleep on your stomach.
Loom and Leaf Sinkage and Edge Support Tests
Let’s take a look at sinkage expectations for the relaxed and firm option. I applied my 130 pounds to an area in the middle of the mattress of 9 by 7 inches, and I sunk in right about 7 inches. I’ve tested quite a few medium mattresses, and I typically sunk in around 6 ½ inches, making this product just a tad plusher than many other products on the market. I personally prefer a plusher product, so I enjoyed this. However, if you like a firmer mattress, you can always opt for their firm option.
Next, we’ll examine the edge support you can expect. First, I sat on the edge of the mattress with my knees against the side. I was pretty well supported and didn’t sink in too much. However, when I scooted forward, I did sink in a little bit more. Overall, though, the edge support on this product is pretty good. I was very well supported when I laid on the edge of the product. If you do find yourself on the edge often, I think this is a pretty good mattress to consider.
Offgassing is a common occurrence with a number of product types on the market, and mattresses are just one of them. It occurs when volatile organic compounds are released and is marked by that “new” smell we often associate with cars, shoes, and more. Many consumers are bothered by offgassing. If you’re one of them, I’m pleased to tell you that I didn’t notice any offgassing with my Loom and Leaf mattress. You should expect to be able to sleep on it the first night of its arrival without any problems.
Support and Comfort
If you carry a lot of weight, it can be difficult to find a product you can expect to last. However, with Loom and Leaf, you can rest assured that it’s capable of supporting up to 300 pounds for individuals and up to 600 pounds of combined weight for sleeping partners. Considering the high density of the memory foam, this can be a great solution for heavier people.
I felt very well supported on my relaxed and firm model, and, despite the fact that memory foam is used in the majority of its construction, I found it very easy to move around to find that perfect sleeping position. I think Saatva did a good job at getting an acceptable combination of comfort and support, and it makes me understand why they are growing so popular in the industry.
A Look at Loom and Leaf Motion Isolation
Whether you share your bed with your significant other, child, or pet, you probably know how disturbing it can be when they continually move around or get in and out of bed. That’s why we like to demonstrate motion isolation. Using two 20 pound medicine balls, I tested the product to determine what you can expect with Loom and Leaf.
Memory foam is well known for its ability to reduce motion transfer, so my expectations were high. First, I dropped one ball on the bed to determine bounce. It very quickly came to a rest after just two small bounces upon landing after being dropped from eye level. Next, I scooted it over to the side and dropped the other ball on the opposite side of the bed. As I suspected, it had very minimal impact on the resting ball. But, just to make sure, I dropped it closer. Still, the resting ball was minimally impacted. Considering the high degree of motion isolation and the fact that this bed is capable of holding up to 600 pounds of combined weight, I think this is a great product for sleeping partners.
Breathability and Temperature Regulation
We’ve discussed the different ways Loom and Leaf helps ensure a cool night’s rest, so I put it to the test. I laid on my Loom and Leaf mattress for a period of 30 minutes in a controlled environment of 64 degrees Fahrenheit. Using my thermal imaging camera, I watched to see how long it took to return to room temperature. It took just seven and a half minutes to cool back down. Of the mattresses I’ve tested, it has taken an average of 10 minutes to accomplish this, so I think Saatva’s efforts to create a memory foam product that sleeps cool were pretty successful.
Maintenance, Protection, Care, and Warranty
If you’re considering the purchase of the Loom and Leaf mattress, you’re interested in a mattress that will offer many years of comfort and support. While you can purchase this product at just a fraction of the cost of other products of comparable quality, it’s still a significant investment, so it’s important that you understand how to make the most of it.
120-Day Home Trial
Ordering a mattress online means you don’t get to lay on it before you purchase, and Saatva understands this. That’s why they offer you a 120 day trial period. This allows you four full months to try the mattress out to ensure it’s everything you expected. You also get the peace-of-mind in knowing you have a 15 year warranty. Your trial period starts on your delivery date. If for any reason you aren’t happy with what you receive, Saata will make the necessary arrangements to have the mattress picked up and refund all of your money excluding the original delivery charge. You won’t be held responsible for any restocking fees or pickup charges.
Customer Service You Can Count On
We touched briefly on the fact that Saatva’s customer service representatives are non-commissioned, but let’s take a moment to really understand what that entails. Commissions often make up a large percentage of the income of the rep you’re working with. In some cases, people work completely on commission. These commissions are paid only when a sale is made. That’s why you have likely experienced pushy salesman in the past. Your buying actions dictate their ability to pay their bills.
I had the pleasure of working with a Saatva customer service representative through an online chat. He was very to-the-point in answering my questions. In the meantime, he didn’t pressure me, and I felt comfortable as I continued to look over the information provided on their website. In my experience, Saatva’s customer service was superior to many other companies I have dealt with in my lifetime.
Loom and Leaf Mattress Cost
I’ve only had my Loom and Leaf for a couple of weeks. However, based on the densities of the memory foam found within the product, there is reason to believe the product will last for many years to come. The efficient online business model eliminates a number of costs involved with shopping retail, and you can purchase your very own Loom and Leaf mattress at a fraction of what you can expect to pay for comparable products featuring the same materials and durability expectations.
Loom and Leaf Reviews and Feedback
Overall, I have had a very positive experience on my Loom and Leaf mattress. In fact, I don’t have any negative comments at all to report on this product. My favorite feature is the cover and the way its design feels beneath me. Combined with the adjustable base, I was able to get the support I need whether watching television or laying down for a good night’s rest.
Traditional memory foam does have a tendency to sink in and leave the sleeper feeling stuck. However, I was able to move around easily. This product does a great job at offering both comfort and support, and I was very impressed with its aesthetic properties. I am a long-time memory foam fan, so some of my opinions may not reflect your personal preferences. That’s why I took a moment to see what other customers are saying about this product to provide you with a more well-rounded understanding of what you’re getting.
- High density memory foam increases durability
- Great value for quality of materials
- Excellent motion transfer reduction
- Product breathes well and is effective in temperature regulation
- Pricey for those shopping on a tight budget
- Some complaints of limitations in firmness options
Who We Recommend the Loom and Leaf Mattress For
The investment in a mattress is a very important one. The quality of your sleep largely dictates your productivity and satisfaction in daily life. That’s why it’s so important for you to take the time to understand any product you may be considering. Let’s take a moment to review the highlights of the Loom and Leaf mattress to help you determine if this could be the right mattress for your unique needs and preferences:
- You weigh up to 300 pounds or have combined weight with your sleeping partner of up to 600 pounds and have had trouble in the past finding a product to offer the support you need.
- You enjoy memory foam but don’t like feeling “stuck” and sleeping hot.

Our Final Verdict
You don’t have to spend a fortune on a quality product you can expect to last. Loom and Leaf utilizes the online business model, allowing you to get a high-quality product at a price you can afford. Many memory foam products feature densities of 3 pounds or less, and these companies often rely on consumer ignorance to get by with selling them at exorbitant prices.
Loom and Leaf is a product you can count on with high density along with multiple solutions to help sleepers maintain the right body temperature for a cool night’s rest. It’s great for those who carry a lot of weight as it’s capable of holding up to 600 pounds of combined weight, and it allows for the contour necessary to reduce painful pressure points. All in all, I feel confident in telling you that you’re getting great value in this product.
