Sealy. History. Heritage. And an undying dedication to helping the world sleep better.
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.
