1895: the 20th century, which is recently behind us, had
not yet begun when Jules-Henri Caillet, master saddler
in Aubonne, was already producing mattresses which
were highly reputed throughout the region.
A shrewd entrepreneur, he aimed at adapting

Etymologically, the Arab word “matrah” preceded the “materasso” of the Italian Renaissance.
Such are the distinctive signs of ELITE bedding…
Historically, the Gaulois are considered to be the inventors of a simple mattress which was progressively
to become more comfortable with the inclusion of horse-hair and wool and later, with the addition
of bedding with straps.
The ELITE master-craftsman knows his history well and the lessons which are to be learnt. He knows
that at this beginning of the 21st century in which new technologies succeed each other at a dizzying

Different mattress types play an important role in back problems. When these occur

A rigid mattress cannot adapt itself to the weight of the thorax and pelvis areas.
The other parts of the body and the muscles are unable to relax during sleep.
The thorax and pelvis are compressed thus leading to inefficient blood circulation
and incorrect spinal support during the night.
CORRECT BEDDING

As opposed to bigger producers who are often limited in their choice of materials by economic
considerations, our status as craftsmen gives us the freedom to choose the best raw materials
and the most natural and healthy for your well-being.
Since the time of our founder, Jules-Henri Caillet, the freedom of being able to choose
the best product after a vigorous procedure of selection is one of the distinguishing features
of the “craftsman of your sleep”. Better than anyone, he knows how to assemble these natural
materials to create your quality bedding.
Wool
This characteristic of wool is particularly interesting when one realises

Another important quality of wool is its great hygroscopic capacity . It is not a well-known fact that
wool can absorb water to one third of its weight without producing a feeling of humidity. At the same
time as keeping the body dry, it can absorb damp and odours. With these “breathing” qualities,
wool can release humidity and its accompanying odours easily and rapidly.

Cashmere
It is on the high Himalayan plateau at an average altitude of 4’000 metres that the Pashmina
goat which has made the name of cashmere famous throughout the world can be found.
This long and silky wool doubled by a tight duvet protecting the goats from glacial winds and
temperatures of between -30˚C to -40˚C is used at ELITE principally for the winter side of our
mattresses.
During sleep cashmere produces a feeling of comfort, softness and warmth.

At ELITE we select only the highest quality horse-hair: it is purchased from a Swiss
producer who has been in this specialist field for six generations and has worked
with Elite for five.
In our daily task of assembling the best natural materials, experience has
taught us to use horse-hair which has a long life quality – exactly the characteristic
of an ELITE mattress.
A tried, tested and certified quality
At Elite, there is no question of using petrol-derived rubber (SBR). We aim
for quality, comfort and for all that is natural.
ELITE 100% natural latex products are permanently subjected to independent
and reputed laboratory quality-control testing. All the various qualities mentioned
in our brochures are certified to QUL norms (“Qlatex” – Ecology latex mattress
quality control) as well as to Öko-Tex Standard 100 norms!
100% natural latex
100% natural latex is a raw vegetal material harvested in Asia from rubber trees.
Rubber tree forests prevent soil erosion, produce wood for the wood industry
and provide heating material, thus creating employment. From its far-away Asiatic
origins, it is exported to Europe in the ballast tanks of huge cargo ships. A means
of transport which does not call for the use of additional energy!
Another fact which pleads for latex’s already excellent eco-energy reputation
is reported in “Rubber Developments”, the English specialist magazine. To produce
one ton of latex SBR (Butadiene Styrene Rubber) 130 gigajoules of energy
are necessary which is the equivalent of approximately 10000 litres of petrol!
To produce one ton of natural rubber only 13 gigajoules are necessary: 5 for each
tree’s fertiliser, 3 for production and 5 for transport; in other words…10 times less
energy.
The great quality of 100% natural latex
At ELITE the natural latex mattresses, veritable gifts of nature, are 100%
guaranteed synthetic rubber-free. It should be repeated over and over again:
only the very best natural materials are used for our mattresses. It is therefore
not surprising that the latex core ( made from Hevea Brasilensis rubber milk) offers
an incomparable elasticity to all products carrying our signature.
It should be stated that there are no specific norms as to what constitutes “natural
latex”. In fact, many mattresses on the market with a “natural latex” label contain
between 15 and 30% synthetically-produced latex.

For the first model in the pocketed-springs range, the craftsman has chosen demanding criteria:
326 springs per square metre.
In an agreeable marriage of softness and resistance, progressive compression “softouch” technology
favourises an initially soft body contact while keeping the mattress core firm. This guarantees progressive
anatomical adaptation and “motion separation” ensuring virtually no partner disturbance during sleep.
Distributed comfort zones
Softtouch technology
Soft and progressive contact
This technique, mastered long ago, reaches what may be called artistic levels; a mattress which
is considerably different, with five surface-body contact zones which maintain the spinal column
and limit the pressure on the neck, shoulder and pelvis region.
Reduced partner disturbances
With the CRESCENDO the harmony of sleep derives from virgin sheep’s wool, cotton and Tussah silk.

Outstanding body support
provides for optimal back support and unequalled comfort. It is more than true that a real craftsman
thanks to the springs density
is able to provide spinal support for both sleeping positions – on the back and on the side. This bedding
technique eases the shoulder, neck, pelvis and leg pressure zones thus providing more efficient blood
circulation. Another characteristic which should be mentioned is “motion separation” which ensures
virtually no partner disturbance during sleep.

Such a “piece of furniture” calls for 100% natural padding of pure horse tail hair, lambswool, Tussah silk
