Woven sleeping mat


Title
Woven sleeping mat
Description
Woven sleeping mat placed between a matress and the rope frame. Sleeping on a rope bed could be uncomfortable, especially if the straw in a mattress or feathers in a bed were flat. This woven mat is designed to add some extra support between the rope and the bedding. This mat would have provided extra support and comfort and would have protected the mattress from pushing through the ropes. Date approximated.
