Lack of proper sleep made parents start a mattress startup, The Sleep Company!


How many times do we uncomfortably move while sleeping on a train berth or on a bed provided in hostel dorms? To solve the problem of uncomfortable mattresses, Harshil and Priyanka have ventured with The Sleep Company to ensure that sleep is not uncomfortable anymore!

When Harshil Salot and Priyanka Salot were struggling to get proper sleep, they found it hard to get a decent mattress and thus they understood the importance of sleep when Priyanka became a mother three years ago. They have tried multiple options and were disappointed with the quality of mattresses in India. This led them to start The Sleep Company in the year 2017. 

“We have realized there was a huge gap between the quality & comfort of products you see in India and other developed markets. Sleep products are so ignored here. With a determination to find a solution, we traveled across to understand and research different sleep technologies and how we could develop something which can be superior to what is in the market today. So, we got in touch with research organizations and then looped in experts and scientists from the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) to work on this technology. After two years of research Sleep Technology, smart grid mattress was born,” says Priyanka in an interview.

To set up a manufacturing unit for making a smart grid and The Sleep Company mattress they have invested around ₹1.5 crores of capital from their lifetime savings. 

The USP of The Sleep Company is the first to make smart grid mattresses in Asia which have no spring, no memory foam, no coir, or latex which is unique and never heard of in the sleep products range. It has a patent-pending technology invented by scientists after years of research to provide ultimate comfort and pain relief. The smart grid has a column structure that intelligently takes the shape of the body. This happens as the walls buckle down on smaller body parts like hips and shoulders to cuddle them while staying firm on bigger body parts like the back to keep the spine straight. This ensures that one can sleep all night, every night, no matter what your sleeping position is. 

The Chief Sleeping Mommy, Priyanka says “After the initial prototype was ready, the biggest task was to set-up a manufacturing unit for the product. As this was a completely new technology, none of the existing practices of machinery used in the industry could be used. Hence, we had a team which spent a year to set up and customize all the machinery to produce smart grid mattress.” 

Currently, they are offering two mattress models – The Sleep Company 1.0 priced between Rs 15,000 and Rs 35,000, and The Sleep Company 2.0 priced between Rs 25,000 and Rs 45,000. The Sleep Company Mattresses are available on e-commerce platforms like Amazon and Flipkart. 

It has been a week since I was sleeping on the Sleep Company 1.0 mattress and I have to say it is the most comfortable sleep I’ve had in years! Order your mattress now on Amazon and let us know how you feel!
