Who We Are

Our Story

Black Sheep Mattress began with a belief that there was a more sustainable and beneficial way to make and sell mattresses. Developed from a growing awareness of the negative health and environmental impacts of conventional mattress manufacturing, we have delivered an artisanal approach to the industry for over 10 years. Over this time, we have grown in our knowledge of quality, sustainability and craftsmanship, continuously expanding our products and services to better meet your sleep needs.

At our heart, we are a small business that places great value on community and connection, considering each partner, employee and customer part of our Black Sheep family.

Our Brand Promise

Quality Craftsmanship

At Black Sheep Mattress, quality craftsmanship is foundational to what we do. As a local shop with a small, dedicated staff and a detailed, handcrafted process, each product is made with luxury and longevity in mind.

Personalized Service

We recognize that everyone’s sleep experience is different, which is why we take a personalized, customized approach to our craft. This ensures that your mattress doesn’t just suit your lifestyle and health needs now, but that it continues to grow with you in the future. Spring or latex? Firm or soft? Whatever your preference is, we build every mattress to order and make any necessary tweaks and adjustments, ensuring that your mattress feels uniquely you.

Due to our process, we can also do custom work like camper mattresses, day beds, and European-sized frames. If you are interested in a custom size or shape, send us an email at hello@blacksheepmattress.com.


Think Globally, Act Locally

We are passionate about paying it forward to the communities that we reside in. Whether this is done by donating items, producing custom products, or creating valued partnerships with local businesses and organizations, we do it often with sustainability in mind. We are striving to build a community that supports local families, businesses and adds more character for the city that future generations will call home.


The word sustainability isn’t often associated with the mattress industry, but our commitment to sustainability runs deep. Here at Black Sheep Mattress, we invest in non-toxic, natural, and organic materials, sourced responsibly and locally whenever possible.

Our products are built for longevity, for health, for all of us. We are under the belief that investing in eco-friendly, non-toxic mattresses and accessories doesn’t just contribute to our individual health, but the wellness of the entire planet.
