Purple Company Information

Purple's brand character, Goldilocks, standing beside the UPS guy who is delivering a Purple Mattress

Purple started out as an idea two brother, Tony and Terry, had while fly fishing. Tony is a rocket scientist and Terry works in manufacturing and design. Together, they came up with the technology behind the Purple mattress’s patented grid technology.

Because the idea behind the Purple mattress was pressure relief and alignment, that is exactly what the grid technology is designed to offer. The comfort grid is made from Hyper-Elastic Polymer®. As you out pressure on the grid, it pushes back until those pressure points sink, but other areas (like your back) are supported. It also offers great airflow to keep you cool.

Purple FAQs

How does the 100 night trial work?

The 100 night trial starts the day your mattress is delivered. From then, you have 100 days to sleep on your Purple mattress and decide whether or not you would like to keep it. If not, Purple will come and retrieve your mattress and bring it to a local charity or recycling center. You will receive a full refund.

Are Purple mattresses eco-friendly?

Purple mattresses are not only allergen-resistant, but non-toxic as well. The hyper-elastic material is made from food-grade ingredients and can be recycled. The high-density foam is certified through CertiPUR-US, meeting some of the most rigorous standards for emissions, content, performance, and durability.

Do I need to flip my Purple mattress?

Nope! The Purple mattresses are designed to work on one side and shouldn’t need to be flipped.
