A lot of people who hear about Saatva then learn that the company also runs the brand Loom And Leaf. Naturally, they wonder which mattress would be better for them.
Saatva provides three comfort levels, while Loom And Leaf only provides two. The “Plush Soft” comfort level is unique to Saatva, so if you want an extra soft mattress you won’t be able to find it with Loom And Leaf.
Loom And Leaf has the more slow-reacting feel where you feel a bit that you sleep in the mattress as it envelops around you (less so, however, than other memory foam mattresses in my experience). Saatva has the traditional feel of sleeping “on” the mattress. You will ultimately have to decide which type of feel you prefer.

The Saatva Queen comes in at $899. This does not include shipping charges.
The Loom And Leaf comes in at $999. This does not include shipping charges.
The delivery method for Saatva and Loom And Leaf is essentially the exact same. They both do not arrive in a box. You will have two men deliver and install your mattress for you. They can remove your old mattress as well for a small fee. Having this delivery process is part of the reason you have to pay a small shipping charge.
Some people worry about their mattress “sleeping hot.” I think both brands do a great job of addressing this. Saatva is a more traditional innerspring mattress, so that alone means more airflow and a cool sleeping surface. Loom And Leaf has extra measures to keep the sleeping surface cool. During my testing, I didn’t note sleeping hot on either mattress.
Both brands have the same pitch that they use more natural materials. The bio-based foams used in both mattresses are only partially plant-based (meaning the rest is the standard petroleum-based). They both use an organic cotton covering. Neither mattress is truly “green,” but they both get you part of the way there.
I didn’t notice any off-gassing at all with either mattress in the first couple of days of receiving them.
Because Loom And Leaf is built in part with high-density memory foam, it does a very good job with motion transfer (meaning movement on one part of the bed doesn’t affect the other parts of the bed). Saatva does uses pocketed coils on the top part of its “coil on coil” construction, but it does have some motion transfer to it. Loom And Leaf definitely has the edge in this category.
Both brands offer a great value. The biggest difference to me is the feel, which will ultimately come down to personal preference. You need to decide whether you are a “memory foam person” or not. For that reason, it’s impossible to say that one brand is better than the other. It really comes down to the type of feel that you like in your mattress.
