Tuft & Needle is the first company to achieve certification of a complete mattress system. The Tuft & Needle mattresses meet Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex Class 1 criteria, the most stringent of the four Oeko-Tex classes. The Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex certification also confirms that Tuft & Needle mattresses fully comply with US Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations.

“A good night’s sleep requires both a fantastic mattress and peace of mind,” said Aaron Bata, Head of Customer Experience of Tuft & Needle. “The Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex certification reassures our customers that their Tuft & Needle mattress doesn’t contain harmful chemicals so they can rest even easier. Plus, as an independent, third party certification with a trackable identification number that consumers can verify online, Oeko-Tex fits right into our company’s commitment to plain speaking transparency and integrity.”

Tuft & Needle was founded in 2012 in Phoenix with a mission to transform the mattress market. Tuft & Needle developed a new business model and disrupted the mattress industry by selling one style of a high-quality T&N Adaptive Foam mattress directly to consumers online for a fair price. The Tuft & Needle mattress is manufactured in the USA and comes with a 100-Night Sleep Trial, free returns and a no-gimmicks 10-year warranty.

“We applaud Tuft & Needle for being the first company to obtain this voluntary certification for their complete mattress system,” commented Ben Mead who represents Oeko-Tex in North America. “The Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex certification indicates real commitment to producing quality mattresses that are safe for everyone in the family to enjoy.”
