Bed sheets have been around for centuries now, it is believed that use of bed sheets originated somewhere around 15th century A.D. The core purpose of bedsheets was to provide a more sanitary interface for occupants of the bed and to prevent damage to the mattress (seeing as the mattress could not be washed frequently). Bed sheets were traditionally made of linen, a robust fabric that survived wear and tears rather efficiently. The reason for bed sheets being robust and crude back in the day was that people had hard jobs. The sheets needed to be washed frequently because dirt and grime all traveled with people, right onto their sheets. Eventually, though, people understood that more delicate materials (such as silk or cotton) could be used for their bed sheets as these materials provided a better feel and ergo, a better night’s sleep. It so came to happen then, that bed sheets made out these materials were reserved for the aristocrats and royalty. The reason for this was that bed sheets fabricated from these materials were limited in quantity and were generally not mass produced.
Traditionally bed sheets were white; imagine that, no options at all. It was later in the 18th century that people started experimenting with colors and patterns that made their bed sheets stand out. The reason people bought these sheets then, was to have a sense of individuality and to bring some novelty into their bedroom space. Later, the Industrial Revolution brought about large dying and fabric printing presses. This made it possible for the common man as well to be able to afford printed and dyed bed sheets that were fabricated out of cotton. Currently, the market bed linen segment is valued at 48.93 billion dollars and is projected to hit 61 billion dollars by the year 2020 globally. Solid, non-printed (dyed or white) bed sheets still have a large market segment today, these are implemented in the more modern, modular households where minimalism is emphasized. Printed bed sheets are more emphasized in personalized households.
