United States Certified BedsFind out which companies show full sourcing transparency to rightfully claim that their memory foam mattresses and beds are truly made in the U.S.A.
The Importance of Knowing If Your Mattress Is Really…
Made In The USA
We strongly feel that the United States has the highest standards for quality and safety, so we therefore want to direct consumers to manufacturers and companies that carry mattresses that are 100% made in the United States, including the foam within the mattress, but we also want to disclose which mattresses use USA made foam or are even just assembled in the USA In cases where just the foam or just the memory foam is made in the USA, we think that it is also very important to see that distinction, as is just the claim of “assembled,” but not “made” in the USA In today’s market place, overseas companies manufacturing some, if not all of their components overseas are even putting claims on their sleep products that actually say Made In The USA, so the only real production for consumers is full supply chain transparency.
Which Mattresses and Beds Are Truly Made In The USA?
According to the Federal Trade Commission, for a product to be called Made in USA, or claimed to be of domestic origin without qualifications or limits on the claim, the product must be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S. All or virtually all” means that all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of U.S. origin. That is, the product should contain no — or negligible — foreign content. Back in 2012, Relief-Mart, Inc. went through a full audit by a 3rd party organization called “Made In the USA Certified” and proved that their memory foam mattresses such as the Tri-pedic and Tempflow mattresses, as well as pillows were completely made in the USA Since that time, they made decision to save the cost of the certification fees required to maintain the on-going re-certification process by the Made In The USA Certified® organization. However, Relief-Mart, Inc. still maintains the same level of commitment to purchasing all USA components and using USA only labor to manufacture all of our foam mattresses and pillows. Other companies below have made commitments to assemble the mattresses in the USA and only purchase memory foam made in the USA, so that means that other components may not be of USA origin. If you are a company that can show us verification that your mattresses, pillows and sleep products are made in the U.S., feel free to contact us anytime and we will include your URL and website in our recommendations.

Mattresses Listed Below May Not Meet The Made In The USA Criteria, But Have Disclosed that They Assemble Their Mattresses In The USA and Use USA Made Foam
TEMPUR-Pedic® is the original maker of memory foam mattresses. At first, they used foam made in their own plants in Sweden and Denmark – good quality foam (TEMPUR-Pedic began as a Swedish company). Now the foam in their mattresses, sold in North America, is made in the USA at their own facilities. Again, this is top quality foam.
Air-Pedic is a Selectabed brand. These adjustable airbeds are assembled in the USA and use 100% USA made foam and covering. Several of the models have memory foam comfort layers.
Casper Mattress, best known as the shaker-upper of mattress marketing, is the company that ignited the mattress-in-a-box trend. Starting out with only one model, it now has three. Each one has memory foam which, like the rest of the materials, is made in the United States.
Layla Sleep, which started in 2015, is a family-owned manufacturer of memory foam mattresses. It’s offices are in Fremont, California, but the mattresses are manufactured in Phoenix, Arizona, which is also the home of Tuft & Needle and Brooklyn Bedding/DreamFoam Bedding.
Tuft & Needle, based in Phoenix, AZ, is a couple of years older than Casper Sleep and Yogabed, the spark-plugs of the current boxed-bed trend. It has neither memory foam nor latex in the top layer, but a latex-like-foam with some memory foam properties. The other layers are polyurethane foam. These foams are made in the USA
Saatva – Their signature model, the Classic Luxury Innerspring, is a hybrid mattress. It has a memory foam comfort layer over a Bonnell coil innerspring. It is ordered online, but not compressed and rolled. They list that all foams are made in the USA
Loom & Leaf is a luxury memory foam mattress introduced by Saatva in 2015. Loom & Leaf. As are all Saatva products, including the Loom & Leaf mattress use foam made in the USA
Leesa is a 10” high memory foam mattress which was introduced the year after the original Casper Mattress. The design was updated in 2018 with a new material in the top layer. Leesa Sleep has added another model, the Sapira, an 11” hybrid mattress and both use foams that are made in the USA
Amerisleep is a memory foam manufacturer owned by the One Mall Group, a marketing firm. Their product line has five models, simply named A1, A2, A3, A4 and A5. These are all made in Arizona using USA-made foams.
Helix Sleep, which began not long after Casper Sleep, customizes each mattress for the customer (individual or couple), in sharp contrast to one-for-all brands. Their foam and assembly has been verified as 100% made in the United States.
PlushBeds had an early start (in 2007) as a manufacturer of boxed mattress with direct sales online. Michael Hughes, the owner-founder, aimed to provide environmentally friendly mattresses. The foam is made in the USA and the assembly is performed in Southern California.
Purple Mattress is and is not a foam mattress. The signature material, Purple, was first created for wheelchair seat cushions. It is best described as a honeycomb design made of “food-grade materials.” The lower layers are polyurethane foam. Neither memory foam nor latex, Purple’s firmer material provides give as it laterally displaces when pressure is applied. The gel material is molded in the USA and the mattresses are all assembled in the USA

Beware of Cheap Imitations!
Unfortunately, not all foam is created equal. Many companies will put together the mattress in the U.S., but buy the foam overseas to save money. With overseas foam, we cannot be sure of the quality or the composition, so we are very wary of recommending mattresses that use memory foam not produced in the United States, with the exception of Tempur-Pedic, who has the only high quality Swedish manufacturing facility we know of. The rest of the overseas foam makers produce memory foam that seems to flatten out with compression, even though it may feel comfortable upon the first feel. Therefore, the memory foam made overseas may not last as long, be as safe to sleep on, and offer enough support. Unfortunately, many companies state their beds are made in the U.S. because the mattress is put together in the U.S., even though they do not use U.S. produced foam. For a list of companies that have produced documentation verifying that their mattresses are 100% produced in the U.S.
