These standards prescribe constructional particulars and other requirements of Khadi Polyvastra bedsheets & pillow covers manufactured from 65 percent polyester and 35 percent cotton blend. These standards do not specify the general appearance, feel, shade, etc, of the bedsheets/pillow covers. Cotton provides absorbency and a soft hand, while polyester adds durability and wrinkle resistance.

It is hoped these standards will meet the requirements of organized consumers such as Ministry of Defence, Railways, hotel industry etc.
