Who We Are

When it comes to mattress-making, we truly are the “black sheep” of the industry, defying convention at every turn.

Quality Craftsmanship:

As a local shop with a small, dedicated staff, we are committed to custom, artisanal craftsmanship. Each mattress is handmade with exceptional care based on time-tested designs, and is built to last.

Health & Environment:

We source only high-quality, natural materials that meet our standards for health and sustainability. We are transparent about our materials, and use no flame retardants, dyes, or other synthetic chemicals, period.


We take the time to develop an authentic relationship with each customer that walks through our door, determining their unique sleeping preferences so we can build them the perfect mattress. Online, our range of customization options and tools allow remote customers to meet their unique needs too. And our 90-day adjustment policy for both in-store and online customers ensures everyone ends up with the bed of their dreams.

Our Story

Black Sheep Mattress began with a belief that there was a better way to make and sell mattresses. With a reverence for quality craftsmanship, and a growing awareness of the negative health and environmental impacts of the materials and chemicals used in conventional mattress manufacturing, owner Christian Schmidt set out to bring the traditional art of mattress-making to the Calgary market in 2011.

The values of quality, sustainability and investing in the local community have grown with the company, and we've been building beds that we're proud to put our name on since then.

Our workshop and showroom is located in Calgary, Alberta where it all began. We ship across Canada.
