A bit about Tuft & Needle
Tuft & Needle was founded in 2012 by two software engineers who were fed up with the mattress industry. Their goal was to sell an online mattress with no markups, gimmicks or middlemen. All these years later, they’ve evolved into one of the most popular bed-in-a-box mattress companies.

A bit about Casper
Casper was founded in 2014 by people that wanted to see the mattress industry be more user-friendly and catered to customers. Once they launched their original Casper Mattress into the world, it set a high standard for competing brands. It’s specifically known for the Zoned Support System—a layer consisting of three ergonomic zones of support that target and support your spine more than an average memory foam mattress.
