Abstract The study was conducted to develop the herbal finish bed linen for bedsore cure. Bedsore, also known as pressure ulcers or pressure sores, are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin. They typically develop in areas where bones are close to the skin surface, such as the heels, ankles, hips, and tailbone, due to sustained pressure from lying in one position for too long. The risk factors for bedsores include immobility, poor nutrition, moisture, and friction. If left untreated, bedsores can lead to serious complications, including infections that can extend into deeper tissues. Therefore, to prevent the risking factors of the bedsore this study is done. In this study, the bed linen is made with the blending of cotton and bamboo fibre to create a sustainable and eco-friendly environment. The bed linen is made from bamboo in the weft and cotton in the warp treated with Punica Granatum rind (pomegranate peel) extract solution. The solution is extracted by saxholet extraction method. The pomegranate peel powder is used for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. This herbal finish will promote the wound healing process of the bedsore at the early stage.
