Bedding Accessories from Black Owned Brands

This post is dedicated to two African American entrepreneurs and innovators, Sarah E. Goode, and Leonard C. Bailey.  Sarah E. Goode obtained a patent in 1885 for a cabinet folding bed.  The cabinet bed (patent number 322, 177) served as a desk that could be transformed and unfolded into a bed.  It was designed with an appreciation of the small spaces in which many African Americans lived.  In 1899, Leonard C. Bailey invented and patented his folding bed for use in hospitals (patent number 629, 286).  He also noted the bed was practical for storage and easy transport. 

These pioneers helped set the stage for further ‘blackpreneurship,’ as their attainments support the notion that with hard work and opportunity, much can be accomplished.  And it is with their legacies in our heart that we review bedding accessories from black owned brands.  These include linens, duvet/comforter covers,  comforters, blankets, satin pillowcases, and bedding options from children and youth brands.   See the companies and product links below for additional details. 

In reviewing these items, I hope you find bedding accessories that work for you. 

Happy Shopping!  Happy Black History Month!
