It is craftsmanship and attention to detail which makes the difference.
Since the mid 19th century, we have carefully maintained our tradition of master craftsmanship and proudly handed this down to each new generation of bed manufacturers. All Hästens beds are built with excellent craftsmanship and a feel for nature’s finest materials – qualities that only the most skilful bed builder can bring. In our opinion, no machine can replace a highly skilled human bed manufacturer. At Hästens, people contribute ideas, skills and hard work, while Mother Nature provides the materials. It is high quality and craftsmanship with feeling that matters. In our dream-factory, our co-workers always play the leading role. The superb craftsmanship and painstaking attention to every detail is evident wherever you look on your Hästens bed: the well constructed bed frame, the sturdy, precise stitching of the fabric, the flexible stretch fabric on the top with the Hästens emblem woven in – details that work together to create a bed for life. We are constantly working to improve and refine Hästens beds.
Your bed should last a very long time. The best thing for you is a more comfortable and long-lasting bed! People that have never seen our factory may doubt that the beds are actually made by hand. When two of our co-workers were doing a demonstration of their work at a store in Stockholm, people came up to them and said: “Come on, you can’t really work like that, can you...?” But we do. Our beds are made by hand, step by step, using natural materials. That is where the quality comes from. No machine can surpass the skills of a master craftsman when it comes to building a bed. We process the horsehair, we stitch, we cut and we tack. Finally, we make the last stitches and tuft the bed by hand to ensure the same quality. The fabric is measured, outlined and cut with great care. The fabric sections are then sewn with great precision, down to the millimetre. The seams of a Hästens bed stand up to close scrutiny.
