This isn’t going to be too hard a comparison to make really. The Loom and Leaf is one of the better mattresses on the market, it has some of the most advance tech in it and it comes in multiple flavors. The Keetsa range of foam mattresses all do their job well, no question about it, but I can’t help but think they priced the range a little too highly. That over estimation will be made abundantly clear when you compare it to the other most expensive foam mattress. Let’s take a look at the companies first.
Company Vs Company – Keetsa Vs Saatva
Yup, the Loom and Leaf is from Saatva, those crazy bedsmiths from Austin Texas. They’ve been making a name for themselves over the last few years with their high quality products, excellent customer service and a dedication to bettering themselves year on year. What they lack though is any visible philanthropic spirit. I realize I go on about that a lot when I review these companies, but when the likes of Leesa can donate a mattress in ten to charity, then I don’t see any reason that others cannot do the same. It seems to be standard that all returned mattresses get donated, though I have yet to find any reference to Saatva doing that. Keetsa approach it a little differently. They’ve been in the business for over a decade and have many retail locations, which may explain their pricing. They may be relative newcomers to the direct to consumer market, but their focus on sustainable materials and a distinctly Eco-Friendly bent have won them fans all over the country. While there is a limit as to how sustainable an oil based product like foam can be, the fact that they are trying should be worth something. For that fact alone I have to award Keetsa as the more respectable company.
Winner – Keetsa
Loom and Leaf Vs Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme Mattress Build Quality and Materials
We always start with the surface materials here, and for once it’s natural vs natural. Both of these companies use 100% natural materials for their topper material. The Keetsa uses a hemp-blend, which I’m sure you know is extremely durable, with a high tensile strength. The Loom and Leaf use pure cotton, which I am a huge fan of. I would argue that where Hemp is more durable, cotton is more breathable, leading to better cooling, but the guys at Keetsa have done wonders with their fiber of choice. If that was all there was to them I would call a draw, but Loom and Leaf do you one better. Their cotton topper is interwoven with a 5/8″ thick quilt, for added comfort. No other mattress on the market, that I’ve reviewed, does that, and it is Saatva’s trademark. Easy win for the Loom and Leaf.
Winner – Loom and Leaf
Onward to the inside and we have two mattresses that are quite different. The Tea Leaf Supreme goes for the classic three tiers of foam. A big eight inch thick base layer, great for support, followed by three inches of what they call Biofoam. Biofoam is an interesting material. It is essentially memory foam, but where memory foam is made almost entirely of petroleum, Biofoam is made from a blend of petroleum and bean oil. I know it sounds odd, but it feels identical, and is much better for the environment. They have plans to continue experimenting, hoping to reduce their reliance on petroleum products. On top of that is one inch of quilted Biofoam. Overall a very comfortable bed that is great for back aches. The Loom and Leaf is a machine on the inside. Our base layer here is five and a half inches with a transition foam layer between it and the primary memory foam. It allows the base layer and the memory foam layer to move more naturally together, creating superior contouring. That is topped with another layer of gel infused memory foam. Memory foam is terrible for heat retention, it’s why most three tier designs use a layer of Avena or Latex foam, they allow the heat to escape, but make the bed slightly less plush. The Loom and Leaf has found a great way around that, and as a result creates the better sleeping experience. Another win for the Loom and Leaf.
Winner – Loom and Leaf
Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme Vs Loom and Leaf Overall Review
I wish this was harder to call than it is. The Tea Leaf is by no means a bad bed, it’s just one that is too similar to other products on the market, and priced at twice what they go for. The Loom and Leaf earns its price with a plethora of advance features, and multiple densities. If you have an overwhelming need to minimize your carbon footprint, and simply have to eek out every emission, then I guess I can recommend you go for one of Keetsa’s designs. But for everyone else looking to drop a grand on a new mattress, get the Loom and Leaf.
Loom and Leaf Vs Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme – Pricing & Returns Policy
Ho boy, would you look at those prices. Most of the direct to consumer market is priced far lower than these, I worked out the average for a queen sized bed and it’s around $900. Neither of these mattresses can match that, but the Keetsa is way out in the lead at $1600. You could nearly get two Leesa’s for that price. The Loom and Leafs $999 price tag is a little misleading though. Unlike nearly every other direct to consumer mattress the Loom and Leaf, and by extension the Saatva, do not offer free delivery. You’re looking at another $99 for that privilege, totaling it at $1098. Still significantly less expensive than the Keetsa. See the table below for the full breakdown.
|Size||Loom and Leaf||Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme|
You didn’t come to this review to see the best prices on the market. No, you came here to see how two of the more expensive foam mattresses compare to one another. So in reality, the price of the mattress shouldn’t have too much bearing on your decision. When it comes to the trial period, Keetsa insist that you use the mattress for a minimum of thirty days, and they offer a full ninety days for returns, full refund provided. Their warranty is a little longer than the ten year standard, being 12 years in length, and everyone should be aware of what their warranty covers. For mattresses, visible sag is covered by the warranty, so bear that in mind too. The Loom and Leaf offers seventy five days to test the mattress, less than the Keetsa, true, but more than enough time to test. Their warranty is is the longest on the market, at fifteen years. This section is a numbers game really, and it doesn’t take a mathemagician to see who wins.
Winner – Loom and Leaf
Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme Vs Loom and Leaf– Conclusion
In the final analysis, the Keetsa has its niche, but it cannot compete with most mattresses on the market. I think the time has come for me to stop pitting it against the competition, it just doesn’t compare. If you want a mattress that feels the same as the Tea Leaf Supreme, go get yourself a Casper for a third of the price. As for the Loom and Leaf, it is a mattress that does nothing but impress. From it’s excellent design to some wonderful aesthetics, it is the mattress to beat at the moment. If only it weren’t so darn expensive.
