Handmade from start to finish by skilled American craftsmen in our original New Jersey factory, each and every Shifman mattress set is hand stuffed, hand-sewn, and hand finished with quality and care. This is what has always set us apart. This is, and always will be, The Shifman Difference.
The secret to Shifman’s comfort and durability starts with a foundation that is a real box spring, built from Canadian spruce, sourced from sustainably managed forests. The Shifman premium box spring features hourglass shaped, steel upholstery coils secured using Shifman’s signature 8-way hand-tied system. Each coil is tied eight ways, by hand, with Italian twine and each coil will respond independently to provide strong, flexible, and long-lasting support.
Inside every Shifman mattress is up to 83 lbs of breathable cotton. We use only apparel-grade, all natural cotton, padding both sides of our two-sided mattresses to perfection. This soft, natural cotton is processed on-site and then applied by hand, layer upon layer to form a two sided mattress that’s more than two feet thick before it’s tufted.
Our hand tufting is done with the use of incredible skill and strength. Our artisans thread high quality twine through all the upholstery layers, using Shifman’s unique Sanotuft technique that locks all upholstery securely in place – eliminating shifting and bunching and keeping your mattress comfortable and attractive for years to come.
Upon completion of the building process, each mattress is finished by hand, and inspected on-site, before being packed with care to ensure the utmost attention to detail is taken.
These are just some of the steps our trained artisans take to make sure that you can enjoy one great night of sleep after another. To learn more about our trained artisans, read more here.
