Airweave was created by Motokuni Takaoka when he took over his uncle’s fishing line company. So how does one go from that to creating one of the leading mattresses in the industry? Takaoka employed his engineering background and discovered he could use the resin fiber in fishing lines to revolutionize sleep products and has been doing exactly that since 2007.
The Airweave mattresses are extremely unique in that they are made up of completely proprietary materials, forgoing the now well-known memory foam and coil options. They became fast favorites among athletes, which isn’t surprising as they have been hailed as the best mattress for spine alignment. Airweave is also very eco-friendly as they are composed of recycled materials. They offer a variety of products including several mattresses and mattress enhancers, along with a myriad of supplementary products such as a portable travel mattress topper, blankets, duvets, and cushions.
Airweave offer 2 full mattress options, a futon option, and a topper. The mattresses are on the firmer side and aim to provide more extensive support and weight distribution through their proprietary airfiber technology which is at the core of all their products. Through its interwoven design, airfiber allows airflow and support so that you can move around easily with minimal motion transfer.
The original Airweave mattress is 8.5 inches and is compatible with almost any bed frame. It is also the first mattress that is completely washable. They have now also released their new Airweave mattress advanced which is customizable with an optional soft layer and features dual mode technology. Another option is the Airweave futon which can be used on its own or even as a mattress topper, so you get the comfort and advanced support of the airfiber technology. Finally, there is the Airweave top mattress, that you can simply place on top of any mattress and still enjoy the full benefits of their advanced technology and a deeper night’s rest. This was the original product that drove Japan wild.
