This History of Mattresses
The idea of mattresses has been around for 1000s of years. Fortunately today we do not have to kill a deer or buffalo so we are able to use its skin as a mattress. Over the centuries the mattress has taken varying forms with the the original cotton mattresses being made by the Egyptians around 3000 BC. The eastern continent was using the futon mattress
centuries ago and to this day the futon is still a big part of the bedding industry. With the invention of the bedstead in the 1400s the mattress became an important part of peoples lives. This was the biggest change to affect the way in which we sleep. Since the first bedstead was made the world has continually found ways of helping us find a great nights sleep. Did you know?? it is thought that the phrase "Sleep tight" came from the 16th & 17th centuries when
mattresses were placed on top of ropes that needed regular tightening.
