How can you tell if a mattress is Australian made?

The major players in the mattress space that are made in Australia are official Australian Made licensees. That means they've applied for and been approved to bear the Australian Made triangle logo. This guarantees that they are definitely manufactured in Australia.

Other products might still be made in Australia but just haven't applied for this license. In this case, it's worth having a look on the product's page to see if there is any reference to it being made in Australia or to its country of origin.

You may also find in your endeavours that some mattresses use Australian made products but are assembled outside of Australia. Or vice-versa. Again, you should be able to find this information on the product's or brand's websites. Otherwise, you can contact the company directly for confirmation of the mattresses' origins.

Why buy Australian made mattresses?

The benefits of buying Australian made mattresses are wide and many. Here's a snapshot of the points for buying locally:

  • Support Australian makers. By buying Australian you're plugging money back into our local economy, making sure homegrown companies thrive and keeping Aussies employed.
  • Mattresses often use local materials. Foams and springs are materials that can and are made in Australia. Again, this keeps Australians employed and it also means that more of your mattress was made in Australia.
  • Made for an Australian environment. Mattresses designed for Australians in mind consider a variety of local aspects, including our humidity. For example, Koala uses an open-cell structure which provides airflow and dissipates heat to keep you cool during our summers.
  • Quality technology. Australia is pretty good on the invention front and our mattresses are no different. We tend to use state-of-the-art technology with a health focus in mind to create mattresses that support posture and are well regarded in the industry. For example, A.H. Beard mattresses are trusted by athletes for spinal support and pressure relief.
  • Faster custom-made mattresses. By buying local, you'll skip the back and forth customisation with overseas manufacturers and the long wait while your mattress is shipped to Australia.
  • Faster shipping and returns. No need to wait for your mattress to arrive from overseas. If the product is in Australia already, naturally it will take less time to get to you.
  • Smaller carbon footprint. If your materials and assembled mattress have a shorter physical journey to get to you, in general this reduces its carbon emissions making it a greener product than something made and delivered from overseas.

Are Australian made mattresses more expensive?

The short answer is no. Like most products, there are high-end and low-end mattresses on the market, both of which are made in Australia and overseas.

But like most products, those on the lower end are made from cheap material while those on the higher end are made of quality materials and often incorporate technology that supports you in bed for a good night's sleep.

This isn't to say you can't get good quality for a good price. Thanks to the emergence of the mattress-in-a-box, brands like Sleeping Duck, Koala and Ecosa sell foam-based mattresses that use high quality materials yet retail for under $1,000. They keep costs down by not having showrooms and salespeople.

Not all of these are made in Australia, though Koala mattresses are.
