the discarded pattern

Suburban phenomenon # 114:
The strange site of finding mattresses being placed out on the street.

I don't know about you but Ive always found it odd to see random mattresses being placed outside of peoples properties. Its such a big object that is considered a major luxury item in many countries, and we just throw them away. Many people across the globe could only dream of owning one, and I'm sure you all know what its like when you climb into your own comfy bed after being away for a while. There is nothing like having you own pillow and mattress that moulds to your body. 

In the last few days Ive noticed a few of them discarded on the street with the trash, and Ive been fascinated! Have you ever noticed that they have some interesting patterns and colour ways imprinted on them? You never really look do you? And when you're in bed they are covered away... But how amazing and vibrant are these fabrics?
