Sources for a high medieval mattress sheet

Among medieval iconography, it is not difficult to find different types of mattresses. Sometimes they are barely visible, but more often their form is visible. An example for our mattress can be a performance located in the Nibelungenlied. Hundeshagenscher Kodex, dating from the 15th century, currently stored in the State Library in Berlin.



What was the role of the mattress in the Middle Ages?

In the Middle Ages, a mattress sheet was a place to sleep. It was a cheap and, in a way, universal solution, because in the sleeping chambers it functioned as an addition to the bed, while in poorer households it was an independent place to sleep. Due to the low weight and the possibility of folding, the mattress was also used when traveling, often as a tent equipment.

Straw mattresses were usually made of linen and had the form of a simple sack. One end was open, and hay or straw was stuffed through the hole.
