SAN FRANCISCO MADE

Mattress Maker HandsWith nearly 120 years of experience building quality mattresses in San Francisco, McRoskey Mattress Company utilizes thoughtful craftsmanship and simple materials to ensure long-term bedtime comfort.

McRoskey Mattress Co. is a founding member of SF Made, and celebrates and promotes local manufacturing.

 

COILED FOR COMFORT

FILLED WITH PURPOSE

SEAMED FOR STRENGTH

McRoskey Sewing RoomThe material on the outside is as important as what’s inside. Our woven, all-cotton, USA made ticking fabric is the strongest and most durable we could find. It’s also the best material for wicking away moisture and ensuring breathability, which contributes to cool, restful sleep. Every panel is hemmed adding strength to every seam.

 

BUILT TO BREATHE

Airletting a mattress sidewallEdward McRoskey thought that the breathability of a mattress was so important, that he added brass eyelets - christened Airlets - tiny reinforced holes throughout the mattress sidewalls to provide ventilation throughout the mattress. We vent the sides of our mattresses and box springs so you and your bed can breathe easy. You’ll sleep cooler, and the materials inside your mattress will stay fresh for much longer.

 

TUFTED FOR COMFORT

Miguel Hand TuftsTufting is a tried and true construction technique that holds the many layers of filling materials in place with a durable thread. A tufted mattress makes for a quality mattress. McRoskey tufting captures and holds in place the coil system, aligning it with the multiple layers of filling materials resulting in a precisely cushioned, endlessly comfortable sleep surface – without the use of glues or other adhesives.

 

THINK INSIDE THE BOX (SPRING)

Ramon makes a box springWhile many mattress maker have abandoned the traditional technique of hand-lacing heavy upholstery springs together to build a true box spring – we believe that a properly made box spring makes up 50% of the comfort equation. Heavy-duty steel coils are affixed to a sturdy wood slat frame to absorb pressure, add responsiveness and dramatically extend the comfort of your purchase.

 

HANDLED WITH EASE

Traditionally made two-sided mattresses provide comfort for years longer than modern one-sided mattresses. This is because people can flip and rotate their mattresses, spreading cumulative wear across all of the sleep surfaces, and preventing the creation of peaks and valleys. We designed our handles to be make it easy to move the mattresses and box springs when it is time to flip and rotate.

 

WHY McROSKEY?

McRoskey Mattress Co. offers quality craftsmanship, straightforward pricing and comfort choices, personalized customer service, and a non-prorated ten year warranty to ensure that you get the best night's sleep year after year. We continue to celebrate traditional craftsmanship in our factory because we believe it results in an overall superior comfort on a more durable mattress.
