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).

Enso Blue Mist

Enso Blue Mist

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

Enso Blue Mist

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.

Pros

  • check
    Tencel (lyocell) blended cover is derived from wood pulp, for the sustainability of natural materials with the durability of synthetics.  Superior breathability when compared with cotton or even bamboo blends.
  • check
    Foam-lined border to provide even surface tension and avoid the “sinking feeling” when one rolls to or sits on the edge.  Will also increase mattress lifespan and prevent sagging.
  • check
    Impressive motion separation between partners, so one can move without disturbing the other.
  • check
    The base includes a convoluted foam for faster “bounce back” than other mattresses, ideal for those who change position frequently while sleeping.

Cons

  • The price might exceed some budgets.
  • Core and base foams are not ventilated or aerated, which provides higher support but might make the mattress retain more heat; unclear if gel spheres could sufficiently combat this for hot sleepers.

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

Dream Weaver

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.

Pros

  • check
    Removable poly-velour cover, infused with aloe vera for freshness and germ resistance.
  • check
    Memory foam with bordered edge for stability.
  • check
    Ventilation-optimized transition foam for cool sleep; also designed to relieve pressure points and reduce joint pain.
  • check
    Classic quilted design with the sleek profile to suit traditional, contemporary, and modern design aesthetics.

Cons

  • The plush surface is ideal for side sleepers, but might be too soft for stomach sleepers.  Back sleepers: varies.

3. Polaris Review

 Enso Polaris

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.

Pros

  • check
    Tencel and poly cover, removable.
  • check
    Ventilated pressure point relief memory foam for contouring and cooling.
  • check
    Like other models, includes foam edge support for “full use” of mattress surface—no more staying away from the very edge for fear of sinking.  Allows for greater durability over time, as well.
  • check
    About half the price of newer Enso models.
  • check
    Fast decompression; takes 6 hours or less to reach full height, compared with 72 or more from other brands.

Cons

  • Does not feature gel technology; better for cold or medium sleepers, rather than hot ones.
  • Thinner than other models at 10″.  If you need high support (especially shoppers with back problems or spinal injuries), a 15″ mattress might be better.

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

Hampton

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!

Pros

  • check
    Ventilated memory foam for cooler surface and pressure point relief.
  • check
    Good motion separation between partners, though potentially not the best available from the brand.
  • check
    Affordable price for those on a budget.
  • check
    Ornate quilting for contemporary elegance.
  • check
    The base is high density for support.

Cons

  • Thinness is due to the lack of core foam other mattresses from Enso have, which means this model could feel too soft and lack the level of support some sleepers require.
  • Does not feature cooling gel spheres or infusions.  Not recommended for hot sleepers.

5. Picasso Review

Picasso

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.

Pros

  • check
    Machine washable cover, made from 100% Tencel.
  • check
    Pressure relief foam for joint support and gel infusion for temperature regulation (good for hot sleepers).
  • check
    Hybrid design makes it great for all body types, including heavier individuals who find they “sink” too much on all-foam models/can’t get enough support.
  • check
    Treated with charcoal, mineral water, and negative ion technology for a cleaner, more sterilized construction—no “mystery debris” trapped in between foam layers.  Great for allergy sufferers.
  • check
    Reinforced edge for even weight distribution and stable surface tension.
  • check
    Very good motion separation.
  • check
    Contemporary stitching and attractive contrast band.

Cons

  • Affordable, but perhaps too high for some.
  • Extremely heavy (113 lbs.), making setup difficult for one person.

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.

To Conclude

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.
