Personalised Cushions & Cool Facts!

Personalised Cushions & Cool Facts!

Cushions have come a long way from their initial creation somewhat 14,000 years ago - Yep cushions are that old! Here are some facts about cushions you may or may not have known!

 

The first pillows were originally made of stone 

That's right - Cold, hard stone! The earliest use of known "pillows" was recorded in Ancient Mesopotamia. This dates back to around 7000 BC and was only used by the extremely wealthy. The more stone pillows you acquired, the higher your rank in society. Sleeping on a stone pillow sounds ridiculously uncomfortable! Better them than us! 

 

Pillows only gained popularity during the Industrial Revolution

As previously mentioned pillows were only used by the elite upper class. As we entered the Middle Ages, this extended to the rich middle class and to women in labour. Pillows only gained mass popularity in the United States and Europe during the Industrial Revolution where they were able to be produced in large textile factories, making them more affordable for everyone. 

 

Different pillows have different lifespans  

Pillows have different life spans! The life of a pillow actually varies quite dramatically. Feather/down cushions should last between 5-10 years, while other types should be replaced every 1-2 years.
