Nature, Man and Sleep
To maintain your health and vitality, you have to let go and immerse yourself in a nocturnal dream-
land, especially after a strenuous day. SAMINA has been consistently utilising nature’s powers for more
than 10 years, making your SAMINA sleep a very special natural sleeping experience. The unique
SAMINA slat frame holds and supports you every night. High-grade natural materials surround your
body and provide a pleasant, dry and warm bed environment, making reclining and sleeping a
pleasure for body and soul every night.
The SAMINA sleeping philosophy incorporates all known factors that promote the natural human
sleep process. It consistently provides the biological, orthopaedic, hygienic and materials-related
environment you need for healthy sleep. Start the new day rested and relaxed.
Charge your batteries with physical and mental energy. Without
realising it, your whole system will go through an enormous building
and regeneration process for body and soul.
The SAMINA bed –
An inexhaustible source of energy.

Higher Quality of Life
Sleep represents an essential recuperation process for body, mind and spirit. So much depends
on sleep: health, performance level and a feeling of well being. More and more people suffer from
sleeping disorders and back problems. According to the Swiss Rheumatism Association, more than
50 % of the population suffers from acute back problems and 90 % of the population has consulted
a doctor at least once because of back problems. This is no mere coincidence. These problems arise
from the world we live in and from causes that we are able to identify, for example the wrong bed.
SAMINA combines the results of modern sleep research (according to the most recent estimates,
more than 60 % of the population suffers from sleep disorders) with requirements generated by
doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, therapists and natural health specialists. We put the principles of healthy
sleep, taken from the science of living-space biology, into practice
without compromise. The result is a complete sleeping system that in-
corporates the soothing and regenerative energy of natural materials
such as wood, virgin sheep’s wool, natural rubber and cotton. This is
one of the important reasons why more and more people are choos-
ing SAMINA as their partner for the “sleeping third” of their life.
Success stories from thousands of satisﬁed SAMINA customers
speak for themselves – world-wide. Only the best is good enough for
Harmony and healthy sleep
for a nice day.

Nature as a Source of Strength
SAMINA only uses materials in their natural state. The energy contained in healthy wood, bio-active
wool from living sheep and naturally pure cotton materials operate on body, mind and soul. With
SAMINA, you spend your nights with materials that you can trust. Treat your body to the highest
levels of relaxation and cuddle up in covers as soft as sheep’s ﬂeece.
Conscientious workmanship by our skilled craftsmen preserves the high-grade material energy con-
tained in the natural raw materials, making the SAMINA bed your personal source of natural energy
and giving you deep, restful sleep. People who prefer using nature’s powers for healthy sleep choose
This is why doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, building engineering biologists and natural health
specialists recommend SAMINA out of conviction. Paracelsus back
in his day already understood the effects of a bed on human health,
and this principle still applies today.

Made In House –
Great care is taken during extraction of our valuable raw materials. All materials used are subjected
to stringent testing for contaminants. However, what good are natural raw materials if unhealthy
auxiliary materials are used in the production process? This is why these precious materials are for
the most part carefully processed by hand in their natural state at SAMINA. The unique SAMINA
beds are made in a calm, well-lighted ambience.
Great emphasis is placed on ﬁrst-class workmanship. This is why we manufacture SAMINA com-
ponents using traditional methods of craftsmanship. Every wool product is ﬁlled, fastened and sewn
by hand. Many hours of manual labour are contained in a SAMINA sleeping system. Each SAMINA
product is made with great care, making it a valuable, distinct item.
We guarantee highest-grade quality that will give you years of
pleasure. SAMINA – for you and your healthy sleep.

gentle production methods.

Reclining and Sleeping that is Good for Your Back
The Spine –
The Key Factor.
In every sleeping position, the spine should lie so that it conforms
to its natural S-shape. The highly-ﬂexible slat frame provides the
foundation needed to meet all medical-orthopaedic requirements
for anatomically correct reclining and sleeping. In combination with
the point-elastic natural rubber mattress and the virgin wool pad, the
spine is given the best possible support and posture in every sleeping
position. We often change our body position while we are sleeping.
No sleeping position is maintained for more than two hours, most for
less than one. 20 to 60 changes in position are regarded as normal.
SAMINA always guarantees optimal and automatic adaptation to More and more people suffer from back problems.

prevent back problems. It increases your quality of sleep night after night, summer and winter,
throughout your life.

A System for Sleeping
Much More Than
the Sum of its Parts.
Although many of the secrets of sleep have not yet been uncovered, medical experts generally agree
that the quality of the internal elements of a bed has a signiﬁcant inﬂuence on the quality of sleep.
SAMINA has spent years working together with scientists and experts to develop a complete sleeping

mate regulation. A duvet, ﬁlled with virgin wool in its natural state that adapts to the body’s posture,
and a pillow from the extensive SAMINA range round off the SAMINA sleeping system. We provide
you with a no-compromise implementation of existing knowledge about natural processes packaged
into concrete problem solutions for your night-time pleasure.
All components are perfectly suited to each other and guarantee

Relaxation for Body and Min
Most sleeping support products react passively to the person sleeping on them. Depending on the
material and the support elements used, the body, together with shoulders and hips, sinks in to
a greater or lesser degree. The lighter body parts lie on top. The necessary pressure equalisation is
often lacking, and the body adapts to the supporting elements. The result is that the spine as well as
muscle tension must provide the necessary equalisation. The muscles remain tense all night. Optimal
regeneration is impossible.
The SAMINA Royal is completely different. Surface pressure applied by the body is taken up by
the patented, double-sided, freely suspended SAMINA Royal slat frame and is distributed in
proportion to body weight and length. The unique construction of the double-sided SAMINA Royal
slat frame creates active counter-pressure, providing optimal support
to the lower spine and also relief for the spinal discs and muscles.
There is continuous equalisation of pressure between the person
sleeping and the supporting elements. The muscles can completely let

SAMINA Royal continuously provides supporting, cushioning and equalising interaction with the
person sleeping, independent of body weight. The unique construction absorbs and equalises every
body movement, reliably preventing incorrect behaviour during sleep. You notice it immediately –
the SAMINA Royal slat frame “thinks” and reacts along with your body. This signiﬁcantly enhances
the quality of sleep and guarantees optimal regeneration. As soon as you lie down to test the
SAMINA Royal, you sense its unique properties.

Healthy Bed Environment
The SAMINA Royal virgin wool pad forms the top layer of the three-part SAMINA Royal. It is ﬁlled
with 100 % biologically active virgin wool of best Merino quality, providing an ideal dry-warm bed
environment. Wool ﬁbre in its natural state stores moisture equal to more than a third of its own weight
The resulting dry warmth lets you sleep comfortably and has an anti-rheumatic effect.
The cover is made of pure cotton that breathes and is gentle on the skin. SAMINA Royal wool ﬂeece
is bonded using a labour-intensive dotted cross-stitch method. This avoids cold bridges and creates
the incomparable SAMINA bed environment.
The SAMINA Royal natural rubber mattress efﬁciently transfers the action and properties of the
slat frame. It is characterised by particularly high point elasticity and an exceptionally good resilience.
With SAMINA, you can be sure that the mattress
core contains 100 % natural rubber.

Perfect in all
The SAMINA Royal sleeping system also offers a series of sophisticated accessories made of solid
beech wood. The SAMINA reading upright contains no metal and guarantees an anatomically correct
spinal position as well as gentle positioning of the joints while you are reading in bed. The SAMINA
Royal relaxation frame puts your spine when lying prone in a relaxing position. It is used for thera-
peutic purposes for short periods of time, particularly to relieve the spinal discs after a busy day, rather
than for sleeping. You can use special wedges to raise the head and foot areas by about 4 cm.
You can use the installation set to quickly turn your bed into a naturally healthy SAMINA bed.
The reading upright, the relaxation frame as well as the head and foot wedges can be added at
any time. Of course we can do the entire installation for you on request.
The metal-free reading upright guarantees anatomically
correct spinal posture while you are reading in bed.

This is an aspect that makes us particularly proud, and you can be proud as well. The wool ﬁllings
in SAMINA duvets and pillows contain only 100 % biologically active virgin wool of high-grade
Merino quality taken from free-range sheep. Virgin sheep wool is one of the best climatic ﬁbres in
existence. It is comfortably warm in the winter and pleasantly cool in the summer. Its extraordinary
ability to store moisture equal to about 30 % of its own weight and rapidly release it to air in the room
makes virgin sheep’s wool an ideal ﬁlling material.
The SAMINA Four Seasons duvet has a pure untreated cotton covering as well as the quality
beneﬁts of whole yarn. Made using a labour-intensive cross-stitch process, it is cuddly, ﬂuid and
simply marvellous. It consists of a light summer duvet and a warm autumn duvet. Both duvets are
also available individually in all standard duvet sizes. You can now
also get the new thin, airy “Midsummer Night’s Dream” duvet designed
for the height of the summer.
The right pillow is also very important for orthopaedic reasons and
to maintain the proper bed environment. Do you normally sleep on
your side, your back or your stomach? One of the 8 SAMINA pillows

More Energy during the Day
Top athletes and successful people swear by the healthy sleep they get from SAMINA. The relation-
ship between healthy, relaxing sleep and physical and mental performance levels has been known
for a long time. The performance demands placed on modern man continue to increase. New techno-
logies lead to very rapid change.
The good news is that from the beginning, man has been exposed to conditions that have con-
tinually changed at an increasing rate. He has met this challenge and has grown with it. He will
continue to do so in the future. The important thing is to maintain the correct relationship between
tension and relaxation. Take short breaks during the day. They give you renewed strength. Use your
holidays and free days to “turn off”.
Also, create the best conditions for sleeping. This lets you make the
best use of the relaxation and regeneration phase during the night.
High demands on performance during the day require
healthy, regenerative sleep.

Every person is born to recognise and fulﬁl his or her personal calling in life. Health, harmony, con-
tentment, success and happiness do not always follow as a matter of course.
There are many ways of ﬁnding one’s own “middle path” and activating vital energy. The energy-
consuming aspects of our high-performance society (the drive towards faster, higher and more
powerful achievement) are destabilising more and more people. This makes it important for you and
your family to recognise that healthy sleep is a source of strength in your life. If you want to remain
healthy, you must ﬁrst of all enjoy healthy sleep. Good, relaxing sleep has a direct inﬂuence on
our ability to perform and maintain our equilibrium as well as on our immune system.
The entire SAMINA sleep philosophy can help you achieve physical and spiritual equilibrium
through healthy, bio-regenerative sleep – for a beautiful morning,
a successful day, and for a good life.
Health is the sum of positive influences
on body, soul and spirit.
