About Daniel Haynes

In 1881, cotton gin builder Daniel Haynes lived in Sealy, Texas, located west of Houston. Haynes began making cotton-filled mattresses for his friends and neighbors. In 1889, he patented an invention that compressed cotton for use in his mattresses. Eventually the mattresses became so popular he was able to sell the patents to manufacturers in other markets. The term "Mattress from Sealy" was coined to describe what was produced.
