Airweave, a Japanese mattress brand, uses a material called airfiber in its mattresses. The material, which is a first in the mattress space, is a network of interwoven plastic that results in a mattress that is essentially all air, which the brand says promotes top-tier temperature regulation, minimal motion transfer and exceptionally easy cleaning. Mattress reviewers found that Airweave mattresses do indeed regulate body heat and provide a firmer surface than an innerspring mattress. And its benefits aren’t unwarranted — a study published in the Public Library of Science found that sleeping on an Airweave mattress versus one made of memory foam offers a more restorative sleep, which might explain why Airweave supplied mattresses to US Olympic athletes for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The brand just released its new Aireweave mattress, which is softer than the original and arrives in a three-piece modular system for targeted sleep performance. Like all Airweave mattresses, the outer layer is removable and machine washable. The inner airweave material is impressively easy to clean — literally hose it down, let it dry and it’s done.

The new Airweave mattress is available now and starts at $1,400 for a twin. Shipping is free, and the brand offers a 100-day trial period.
