Spindle Story 2018-12-04T17:13:22+00:00

Real mattress.
Real people.

If you want marketing spin
and hyperbolic claims we can tell you where to go.
We sell mattresses.

An old-fashioned mattress company
with digital speed spunk.

Spindle was founded by a 4th generation mattress maker on a mission: sell a remarkable mattress at a price that won’t break the bank.

We listen to your stories, provide candid answers to your questions, and do our best to help you choose an appropriate mattress, even if that means you buy somewhere else. At the end of the day doing the right thing is much more rewarding than just moving mattresses out the door.

Entrepreneurial. Customer-centric. Innovative. Independent. Agile. Lean.

Spindle is the e-commerce start-up focused on doing for Latex what another mattress company did for memory foam. We can’t wait for you to read the full case study once it’s published by Fast Company, Inc. or Forbes. In the meantime, here’s what BedTimes Magazine has to say.

From an early age, Neal knew he wanted to be a mattress maker. Neal grew up around people who grew up around mattresses. Mattress making is in his DNA.

Spindle is a realization of the mattress maker’s dream.
