Development of mattress

Humans have a long history of using beds and mattresses. Throughout the history of mattresses, it is a history of civilization in which humans innovate and reform mattresses in order to improve sleep quality and experience. As early as ancient times, primitive people began to build beds made of wood or slate. In ancient Egypt around 4000 BC, the development of the bed has been relatively mature, not only using wood as a framework, but also laying thick mattresses and mattresses on the bed. Early luxury bedding that appeared around 2000 was often decorated with gold, silver, or copper, and the mattresses of this bed were filled with reed, hay, wool, and feather

By the 15th century, western mattresses used pea shells, and sometimes feathers, and filled them with coarser particles, and covered the surface with gorgeous velvet, brocade, and silk.
Until the 16th and 17th centuries, mattresses were basically filled with straw and fluff in a grid made of rope and covered with fabric. In the late 18th century, cast-iron beds and cotton mattresses have appeared, which makes it difficult for insects or parasites to inhabit and reproduce in the mattress, and the sleeping space is warmer and hygienic.

Modern sleep in the true sense is marked by the birth of spring mattresses. In 1865, the world's first spring mattress was launched, which opened a new chapter in the history of modern mattresses. Since then, with the development of mattress technology, the types of mattresses have been continuously updated, and the quality of human sleep has been continuously improved, driving the rapid development of the entire mattress industry.
Globally, the United States is the earliest and most mature country in the development of the mattress industry, with more than 100 years of mattress history. From the earliest simple spring mattresses and independent pocket spring mattresses to the latex mattresses and memory foam mattresses developed in the past two decades, the ergonomic design and technological content have gradually increased, which has greatly satisfied people's diverse health The need for sleep improves the quality and feel of sleep.
