Bed linen components

Bed linen components

Sheets
Cover sheet: Piece of fabric that wraps the mattress. When the bottom sheet is equipped with elastic all around or at the 4 corners, it is called fitted sheet. This fitted sheet is designed to be attached to the mattress to protect it. It must be the same size as the mattress. A sleeper rests on this sheet to sleep.

Top sheet or flat sheet: rectangular piece of fabric placed above the fitted sheet (or bottom sheet) on a bed. This sheet is larger than the fitted sheet because it must be folded over the blanket to protect it.
Comforter cover
Fabric cover in which the comforter is slipped to protect it. We call chimney the piece of fabric located at the foot of the comforter cover which is tucked under the mattress.
The comforter cover has a double interest: it is easier to maintain than a comforter because it is less bulky and lighter. It can therefore easily be washed in a conventional washing machine.

It is a decorative element of the bedroom and just by changing the comforter cover you can change the decoration of an entire room.
Pillowcase
Fabric cover to protect the pillow which is one of the elements of the bed linen. It usually comes in different fabric materials, patterns and colors to match the sheets and comforter cover.

The pillowcase is a decorative element of the bedroom and changing the comforter cover is enough to change the decoration of an entire room.

Comforters have been used since the end of the 20th century and the comforter cover replaces the flat sheet and blanket.

Bedspread
For a warmer bed in winter or nicely trimmed in summer, also called bedspreads, bedspreads are used to cover and protect a bed or sofa.
Bedspreads can be woven jacquard in natural or synthetic fibers and are usually made of a heavy, easy-care fabric quality!
