Washington, June 17 (ANI): Having a good night's sleep is something everyone would like, and to ensure it a bed making company is coming up with a mattress that will cost nothing less than a whopping 44,000 dollars.
The existing version, a 33,000 dollars hand-tufted, king-size Palais Royale mattress and box spring created by E.S. Kluft and Co., is currently the most expensive American-made mattress set on the market.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the company says it has sold about 100 since introducing it in 2008.
Now Kluft's Sublime model, which the company has teed up for a launch later this year, will cost 44,000 dollars.
Earl Kluft, chief executive of E.S. Kluft, a family-owned company based in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., says it takes 10 craftsmen about three days to make the Palais Royale.
It contains 10 layers and more than 10 pounds of cashmere, mohair, silk and New Zealand wool that has been washed, dried and crimped.
Natural latex foam and certified organic cotton are among the materials used to reduce motion transfer and provide cooling.
The Sublime has a layer of horsehair for resiliency.
"We really want the consumer to get a better night's sleep," Fox News quoted Kluft as saying.
"When you think about it, the mattress is the most important thing in your house. You spend more time on your bed than anywhere else," he stated.
Kluft says super-premium mattresses, or those costing 20,000 dollars or more, made up five percent of Kluft's sales of 33 million dollars in 2009, a year when overall sales were flat.
He revealed in 2010, first-quarter sales were up 50 percent over the year earlier. (ANI)
