Our highly valued relationship with Specialty Sleep Association
The beginning of the incredible nine years with Specialty Sleep Association journey began on April 15, 2011 when the Azimovich brothers Sardor Azimovich, co-founder of Sleep & Beyond with his brother Sarvar hired J. W. “Butch” Craig a.k.a. Man In Black as their National Sales Manager for Sleep & Beyond. The next objective was to conquer Las Vegas Market.

Las Vegas Summer Market of 2011 was the first historic market for Sleep & Beyond when we joined the SSA Association and showcased in the Organic Pavilion. With the creative debut, Sleep & Beyond hired Tim Welch, #1 Elvis Presley Impersonator, for the first three days of the show and Elvis made sure to leave the long lasting impression by meeting, kneeing, singing, and greeting hundreds of visitors and buyers that came through Specialty Sleep Association and all the showroom buildings. Elvis not only performed but launched Sleep & Beyond to the next great level making an incredible journey for Sleep & Beyond to become the Top 3 Best Wool Bedding Brands of USA and marking its 28 Years of Sleep Solutions. Sleep & Beyond looks forward to begin its 10th year with SSA starting with upcoming Las Vegas Winter Market In January 2021.

Our Raw Materials
At Sleep & Beyond, we are committed to using only the finest and purest raw materials to create each of our bedding products.

Pure Organic Merino Wool
Superfine Merinos are regarded as having the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Unlike other wool, Merino wool is much finer, softer, and best of all, itch-free for all. It is used as a filling for our premium myMerino collection.

Shropshire Wool
In the mid-17th century, Shropshire sheep and their wool were described as “Choicest and Dearest in England”. Shropshire wool is a premium choice for our washable wool bedding (aka myBedding) as it is light, elastic, and fine to the touch. The wool undergoes sustainable and eco-friendly “Biowash” treatment that makes the wool fiber washable and not shrinkable.

Organic and Natural Cotton
From seed to shelf, our organic and natural cotton is grown and processed free of pesticides, harmful dyes and carcinogenic chemicals.

We have created new series of educational videos to help our customers sleep better and healthier through the magic of wool:

Sleep & Beyond takes great pride in continuous quest to being a Zero-Waste and Women’s Empowerment Company.

Empowering Women

  • We employ and empower women in all of our production areas.
  • We greatly rely on their expertise and skills and proud to bring their craftsmanship to the world.
  • In our wool factories, our women play an important role from wool fiber sorting, scouring, carding to cut and sew, packing and supervising transparency and traceability all across.
  • In our cotton factories, our women are employed in all of the production areas from growing organic and natural cotton to fabric spinning, weaving, cut and sew and more.

Solar Power
Our S&B Gardens in India have been using the solar power for renewable energy since 2017.

  • Every left-over raw material from our production is reused in one or another way.
  • For example, an excess fabric roll turns into a packaging solution as it is very durable and reduces the need to use regular polypropylene tape.
  • New samples and product ideas are developed from our remaining unused raw materials or first test production runs.
  • We try to recycle as much as we can. You may notice the recycle number for our packaging in the product labels.

Azo Free & Hand-Screen Printing
We utilize a non toxic, azo free and heavy metal free hand-screen printing (GOTS approved) on our organic cotton collection products.

Our Product Packaging

Cotton Packaging
We package our myMerino and organic cotton collection products in reusable 100% natural and organic cotton bags, which can be reused and recycled. You can get even more creative and take them on a camping trip or use them as a laundry or a grocery bag. Our myMerino bags also became very popular for various charity events and organizations. We are very proud to have become sponsors in such amazing nonprofit organizations such as Teen Cancer America and GIFT (Global Initiative to Free Trafficking Victims).

PEVA Packaging
Our packaging for myBedding products come in PEVA, an ecofriendly, phthalates free and BPA free packaging/plastic substrate with non toxic materials. It is also one of the most environmentally safe packaging alternatives developed today. It is fully recyclable #7.

LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) Packaging

Our Philanthropy
“Give to Receive” way of life has been deeply rooted in our DNA by our parents, grandparents and our ancestry. When we have an opportunity, we extend our hand to our local community and friends in need.

These children deserve brighter future and we are glad to be part of their journey in life.

Would love to finish our story with the quote from our Captain Butch:
You’ve been given the innate power to shape your life…But you cannot just speak change, you have to live change. Intent paired with action builds the bridge to success. You can’t just want it, you have to do it, builds the bridge to success. You can’t just want it; You have to do it, live it. Be it! Success isn’t something you have, it’s something you do!
