Ancient Chinese invented the paper and began using it for toilet purposes. In 12th century, Chinese Royal family started using specially designed pieces of paper (that were even perfumed)! That toilet paper was very similar to our modern toilet paper. Joseph Gayetty is widely credited with being the inventor of modern commercially available toilet paper in the United States. Gayetty's paper, first introduced in 1857, was available as late as the 1920's. Gayetty's Medicated Paper was sold in packages of flat sheets, watermarked with the inventor's name.
