50 Years ago, Textile Engineer Mr. Egino Hartmann had an idea:
He used a regular woven bottom sheet, spread it out on the floor, folded over the edges and secured the outlines with numerous simple
sewing pins. Then he took scissors, cut off the excess thereby creating the trapezoid flaps which are the basis for the side pockets of
sheets. And, voilà, the rudimentary origin for a True Fitted Sheet was born.
Of course, in subsequent weeks, Mr. Egino Hartmann fine-tuned his idea with preciser and more sophisticated tailoring. Elastic rubber
bands were sewn in to make the bottom edges stretchable.
Later on, his inventions were imitated by numerous other manufacturers. The first true success of the Fitted Sheet came only in the
1970's with the introduction of the "Frottee (Terry Cloth) Fitted Sheets", a huge hit in the bedding industry for at least two decades.
Nowadays, however, it has become crystal clear that the greatest application of the "fitted" tailoring method comes in connection with
elastic knitted fabrics like the ones our Jersey Knit sheets are made from. Egino Hartmann realized this 20 years ago and has been
perfecting the manufacturing designs ever since.
And so, today, our EGINO® Jersey Knit fitted sheets, invented by Egino, are still the best and continue to be the quality standard which
has yet to be accomplished by our competitors worldwide. (See our Testimonials page.)
