Every Sealy mattress is the pinnacle of years of ingenuity and research. In 1881, our journey began in Sealy, Texas, when Daniel Haynes, a cotton gin builder, made cotton-filled mattresses.
Fifteen years later, Haynes sold his patents to a Texas Company that retained the Sealy handle. Soon after, ad exec Earl Edwards penned the slogan “Sleeping on a Sealy is like sleeping on a cloud.” And with that, Sealy mattresses became a national phenomenon.
By 1920, Sealy had 23 licensed plants in many regions. Even in the face of the Great Depression, they managed to not only stay afloat, but to introduce a new product – the Button-Free Innerspring.
