Decades of Expertise
Brooklyn Bedding has been making mattresses since 1995, decades longer than most internet mattress retailers. The brand’s longevity has been the key to continued success as both a top retailer and top manufacturer of private label mattresses nationwide.
Brooklyn Bedding takes the sleep experience personally. The bedding company owns the manufacturing end to end, designing, constructing, and selling mattresses on demand from their state-of-the-art 300,000-square-foot factory in Phoenix, Arizona. This factory direct autonomy allows for instantaneous design adjustments, based on real customer feedback, and greater control over quality construction, materials and cost.
American Made Products
Owner John Merwin made a decision early on to own production at the U.S.-based factory. He pioneered the bed-in-a-box concept in the United States in 2008, investing $135,000 to import the first Teknomac roll pack machine from Italy to ensure his products and processes remained American made. He continues to test the limits of manufacturing capabilities and invest in the latest technology. Because his manufacturing process is vertically integrated, suppliers come to Brooklyn Bedding first to test new ideas and innovation. Brooklyn Bedding even manufactures its own coils.
Owning every aspect of the manufacturing process cannot be overstated when it comes to offering shoppers a fair price on innovation and quality. By eliminating the middlemen in sourcing and shipping directly to the customer, Brooklyn Bedding can lower the cost of every mattress produced, including those with the most advanced technology. Meanwhile, the durability of a Brooklyn Bedding mattress adds significantly to its lifetime value.
Brooklyn Bedding was founded by two brothers who began the business by deconstructing mattresses. Known in the industry as The Mattress Whisperer, John Merwin worked with his brother Rob to build the business both organically and locally. Extra care, with a hand-tailored approach, is still taken in the production process—from meticulously trimming and surging raw fabrics to using more durable fabrics and Kevlar thread with safety stitches to ensure a mattress that lasts. Brooklyn Bedding utilizes water-based adhesives that are environmentally friendly and non-toxic. High-end zipper covers are made in-house as opposed to using inexpensive materials sourced from overseas. Even individually encased coils are produced at the manufacturing facility. Mattress finishers at Brooklyn Bedding are among the highest paid, most skilled workers in the industry. A minimum of ten years’ experience is required for every member of the finishing team. These details matter when it comes to crafting a better sleep.
Numerous mattress companies have created marketing hype around their one-size-fits-all mattresses. With decades of experience selling at brick and mortar retail—and being one of the earliest adopters of ecommerce in the mattress industry—Brooklyn Bedding knows that no one mattress can be a perfect fit for everyone. As actual mattress manufacturers, the company constructs beds in thoughtfully engineered layers, with every layer serving either a comfort, support or cooling purpose that meets a specific consumer need. Most mattresses are offered in three firmness levels or feature a customizable option to ensure the best sleep solution.
Brooklyn Bedding offers a generous trial period—120 nights risk free—as well as free shipping and free returns for every size mattress at every price point. Additionally, every mattress comes with a 10-year warranty.
Pillow Warranty – 30-night trial and 3-year warranty
Sheets Warranty – 30-night trial and 3-year warranty
