High Quality Duvets?

We talk about ‘quality duvets’ but what is meant by ‘quality’? What should you look for? 
  1. Box Wall Construction
Each ‘compartment’ of a duvet has a small wall between its upper and lower surface, to allow the filling to be distributed evenly throughout the cell. But cheaper duvets (in both senses of the word) have the upper and lower surfaces sewn directly onto each other. Thus the filling is unable to reach the edges of these cells, resulting in cold spots where the filling is not as thick – or even missing altogether. All duvets supplied by All Tog Duvets have the Box Wall construction.

      2. High Thread Count
The density of the duvet casing material (or pillow casing) affects the feel of the product and also its ability to stop the contents leaking out. This ‘density’ is known as the “Thread Count”, which means how closely woven the threads are in the material. Our Feather duvets have a high thread count of 233. Our Hollow Fibre, Anti-allergy and Siberian Goose Down Duvets have an even higher thread count of 300 - giving them a more luxurious feel, as well as the tighter weave to keep the finer Goose Down filling safely encased.

3. Piped Edging
Having piped edging on your pillows and duvets makes the item look smarter and also provides reassurance that the seams are strongly made and unlikely to come apart.

4. Fill Power
One measurement of the quality of a natural filling is 'Fill Power’. This is a measurement of the thermal efficiency. The 100% goose down in our White Siberian Goose Down duvets has a whopping fill power of 800. Some other manufacturers lower the fill power of their goose down duvets by adding a percentage of feathers to the down.

Our White Duck Feather and Down duvets have a fill power of 400. This is higher than most other feather duvets because we include 15% White Duck Down with the feathers.

5. Source of natural fillings
Always check to see where the filling comes from. European suppliers will adhere to various regulations - including those pertaining to animal welfare. While it is possible to save costs by using cheaper suppliers, there can be no guarantee of the methods and standards used in the manufacture. There are many instances of non-European suppliers using methods that are, to be frank, too distasteful to publish here. We use a UK manufacturer whose suppliers are known and trusted. For this reason we can be sure that all fillings have been sourced ethically and conform to standards that we trust.
