With this track record, we are now ready to provide bedding for athlete’s village at Paris 2024.

Airweave is an innovative Japanese mattress manufacturer, creating the ultimate sleep environment based on science. Since our founding, airweave has endeavored to manufacture products with the desire to be a company that provides “quality sleep,” rather than a manufacturer that simply sells products. In an era when soft, low-resilience mattresses were the norm, we developed a high resilience mattress with our unique airfiber® material, aiming to be the product of choice for people who always want the best. We also focus on sleep research and study the quality of sleep based on scientific evidence. Our bed mattress, which has become a major product in the past few years, has a three-part structure that can be adapted to individual body shapes, and is a direct result of our corporate philosophy of “Quality Sleep.” In addition, we will continue to make efforts to manufacture products that are not only comfortable to sleep in, but are also environmentally friendly by focusing on the recycling of bedding and the development of new materials aimed at realizing a sustainable society.
As a “Total Sleep Solution Company,” airweave will continue to pursue our goal of realizing quality sleep and make further technological innovations in order to serve more people in the future. Furthermore, as basic infrastructure of daily life, we will continue to create new value in the world of sleep.
