Eight-way, hand-tied springs have a wide range of movement providing a very even and individual "sit," because they move up and down and from side to side. In the construction of these systems, the craftsman individually ties heavy-gauge coils from front to back, side to side, and diagonally (eight ways) to provide the highest level of quality, comfort, and durability. This process costs more because it is time consuming and can only be done by hand.
