Who We Are

When it comes to making mattresses, we truly are the "black sheep" of the industry,
defying convention at every turn...

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, Black Sheep has been bringing the traditional art of mattress-making to the Calgary market since 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 ever since.

At our heart, Black Sheep is a small business - we treat our employees like family and are truly grateful for each and every person who chooses to buy our products.

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