Enso Mattress Reviews of 2018 & Buying Guide
Enso Sleep Systems is an American mattress manufacturer with a focus on green materials: their products are made with bamboo, activated charcoal, hemp, wood, and cotton. They even use mineral water in their manufacturing process to eliminate harmful debris and chemicals.
They promise eco-friendly, affordable, and comfortable mattresses with superior odor and bacteria control. Our buyer’s guide will explore these claims in some featured mattresses from Enso, as well as answer common questions buyers might have about the brand.

What is Enso Sleep?
Founded in 2010 as a division of Comfort Design, Enso is an American mattress company that emphasizes both eco-friendly and socially responsible mattress construction. Using all-natural materials and thoughtful designs, they not only meet Certi-PUR standards, but exceed them. Buyers will enjoy a smaller carbon footprint, without a larger price.
What’s their customer service like? Are their mattresses made in America?
Admittedly, our initial attempt at contact was a little confusing, due to some linking issues on the company’s site. The Contact Us link is not prominently featured, but rather at the bottom of the page in small text. When clicked, it takes users to a “Help Desk” portal with FAQs, and requires signing up before one can submit a help ticket—which, for us, also didn’t work.
When we clicked on their Contact Page directly from a search engine link, however, we were taken to an email form. The response was achieved in less than 12 hours, and the representative was friendly and helpful.
A phone number was not listed on the company’s site (at least, not that we could find).
Their mattresses are designed and sold in America, but manufactured in China.
What makes Enso Sleep Solutions different from other manufacturers?
In addition to high-quality, cleaner materials, Enso is dedicated to fair and ethical practices in their factories—and they expect their dealers to adhere to those standards, as well.
The company does not use forced or slave labor, pays its employees fairly with all benefits mandated by law, and has a strict non-discrimination hiring policy.
They support legal apprenticeship programs/internships, but will not hire those under the age of 16 in their factories, even if the minimum age for work is lower in certain areas.
Enso doesn’t just sell high-quality memory foam mattresses: they also offer hybrids, adjustable bed bases, foundations, and pillows, all made with the same quality materials and high standards. Their products are all constructed with a thoughtful design and fair price.
Will Enso products suit my budget?
While only the consumer can decide if a product’s value is worth the price he or she paid, Enso does seem to be an affordable option for most budgets. With cleaner materials that promise better mildew, dust mite, and bedbug control—as well as higher resiliency foams—the cost will pay for itself with a mattress that lasts longer and stays fresher than foam models of lower quality.
Enso Mattress Products Reviews
1. Blue Mist Review
This 12″ foam model is equipped with gel spheres in its first layer, for high pressure point relief and less body heat retention. For hot sleepers, this little feature can be a godsend, while couples with different sleeping positions will appreciate its middle-of-the-road firmness level. Of all the models featured in this buying guide, we feel this is the most impressive and provides the greatest value for its price.
The Blue Mist model has a refreshing name, but might not feel all that cool to very hot sleepers. If you or your partner require high pressure point relief due to aching joints, the gel spheres in the top layer could be your ticket to painless nights—and mornings. Side sleepers, in particular, will benefit from its supple surface and fast-acting contour ability.
2. Dream Weaver Review
Like all Enso’s mattresses, the Dream Weaver contains foam treated with mineral water and active charcoal, for a thorough clean that will last long after the mattress leaves the factory and enters your home. Its quilted cover is treated with aloe vera for unparalleled softness, odor control, and natural microbe-fighting properties.
The Dream Weaver is best for side sleepers and people who prefer very soft support—not as soft as most pillow top models, but not as firm as memory foam tends to be. It will require an adjustment period of up to one week to feel the true plushness, especially if you’ve never slept on memory foam before; this is common for most foam mattresses.
3. Polaris Review
Enso’s Polaris model is best for green enthusiasts who need a more basic model—and lower price. It features specs you’ll still find in the pricier models, but without the extras some people don’t need, such as cooling gel spheres.
For a basic but well-thought-out design, consider the Polaris. It offers the same contour and comfort of other memory foam models, as well as eco-friendly materials and a focus on clean, healthy durability—but without excess features you might not need and, therefore, probably won’t want to pay for.
4. Hampton Review
Enso’s Hampton is an 8″ model with no shortage of the company’s green and health-focused features. Its foam is washed with mineral water and treated with charcoal during assembly, to remove harmful chemicals and debris that might otherwise become trapped in/expelled from the foam during construction. It also has the same airflow pressure relief (APR) foam as the other models available, a removable polyester cover, and is available in twin, full, queen, and king sizes for the whole family. What’s more, its price is affordable—so you might decide to upgrade the entire house!
The Hampton, like the Polaris, is a smart option for anyone seeking the highest quality at the lowest price from this brand. It packs all the eco-conscious, cleanliness-focused specs into a more affordable package, so buyers know they’re still buying a clean, ethically made product, regardless of price.
If you’re a side sleeper, this should have the perfect amount of giving to relieve shoulder or hip pain. Some back sleepers will like it, too, although we believe it’ll be too soft for stomach sleepers out there.
5. Picasso Review
Note: This model is listed on Amazon under Klaussner, the parent company of Comfort Design and Enso Sleep Systems, but is in fact part of the Enso line.
The Picasso is a hybrid option from Enso, so traditional innerspring lovers can rejoice—while also enjoying some of the benefits memory foam has to offer. With pocketed coils and a high-density base foam (with plenty of memory foam on top), consumers can have the stability and weight distribution of coils, with the comfort and body contouring only available from foam.
The Picasso is one of the greenest hybrid models you’ll find on the market today. Body heat dispersal and weight distribution are great, as you’d expect from a standard innerspring model, but it also has the pressure relief and cradling comfort of foam built in. Medium firmness; best for back and stomach sleepers.
Enso Sleep Systems focuses on comfort, affordability, cleanliness, and sustainability—right now, in fact, they’re transitioning their factories to a Zero Waste, Complete Loop cycle: in time, the company will produce almost no waste, and reuse everything its machines put out.
Besides helping the environment, you’ll also benefit your health. Enso mattresses are created to eliminate harmful gases that production naturally brings out in memory foam; they also wash their foams prior to assembly, with naturally antibacterial choices such as mineral water and aloe vera. If you suffer allergies or sensitivities to synthetic materials and debris, an Enso mattress might help.
We hope our buyer’s guide has been helpful to those considering an Enso Sleep Systems product. They’ve managed to create a range of sustainable and natural mattresses that provide long-lasting comfort and support—yet without the “go green mark-up” some companies on the eco-bandwagon have attached.
