A Duvet Cover, why we need it?

September 27, 2016 2 Comments

Duvet cover is used to cover the duvet, which is a bag filled with down, feathers, wool or other natural or man made stuffing to create a warm bed covering that takes the place of quilts, comforters & bedspreads. Normally, the duvet cannot be washed because the water will ruin the stuffing. That’s why the duvet needs a cover. So, a duvet cover likes a very large pillowcase for a duvet.

 Similarity to a duvet is a comforter. The question is what is different between them? Duvet and comforter are forms of blankets or quilts. People use it to protect them from the cold. The differences between a comforter and a duvet lie in the material they are made of and their usage. A comforter is a thick and quilted, fluffy blanket intended to keep the user warm. It is usually filled with synthetic fiber filler. A Duvet is a type of bedding - a soft flat bag traditionally filled with down or feathers, or a combination of both and used on a bed as a blanket. A comforter can be washed but a duvet can’t. A comforter usually has a size bigger than the bed size, a duvet size normally equals to bed size. A duvet should be with a cover while a comforter can be by itself.

Generally people need a duvet cover by many reasons:

-         To protect the expensive down duvet. Of course the people don’t want to wash the luxury duvet. They don’t want the great duvet get it soiled, snagged or possibly a whole lot worse.

-         There are a lot of works to do when cleaning a duvet. There are not many people enjoy washing a huge duvet.

-         Normally, people will get more energy, more excited when their bedrooms are fresh and renewed more often. What can we do? Changing a sheet set then changing the duvet? Yes, it is easy to replace a sheet set to different colors, but it costs a lot to change a duvet or comforter. Every one knows about that. The best solution is a duvet cover. We can change the feel of the room without having to completely redecorate. In the market, also we purchase as part of a bedding set, along with sheets, pillowcases and a bed skirt, all in coordinating patter. We can change the duvet cover by season or whenever time we want. We can keep your luxury sheets and still make over your bed to match the seasons or our mood by simply purchasing a duvet cover.

-         Making organic to the duvet. For any reason, one has a Natural but non- organic duvet, it is possible for she or he to organic it by covering the duvet with an organic cotton duvet cover, which many stores are offering.

We are spending one third of our life to sleep. It is no doubt to spend more time to decorate the bedrooms and spend a little much money to change bed to be a luxurious and comfortable place to sleep.

I fully agree with you on using organic products that are free from animal components (example- feathers, etc.). The writing here is about a duvet cover and not about duvet content. The duvet covers are made of 100% organic cotton completely free of any animal content. The duvets its self is something else and needs to be worked on. Personally I avoid down duvet and prefer organic cotton comforter. Hope this info helps. My best wishes for your pursuit.

I choose to life my life as ‘organic as possible’, mostly in regards to animal welfare. As animal lover I cannot ignore how the duvet quite often is produced. Often picked on very alive chickens. The reason is a chicken re-produces their feathers x number of times during their lifecycle, and people making $ on selling feathers see it as a good business to get as many feathers out of a chicken as possible before the chicken is slaughtered. It is a painfull affair to get ‘your hair’ ripped of your skin. Try yourself if in doubt. For this reason only, I am looking for organic duvet. A factory or productution selling quilts stuffed with feathers produced with animal friendly approach, that is, feathers picked from dead chickens that have lived organic life. Does such production exist? Can you guide me further ? Sincerely Sanja
