Purple Duvet Covers
Purple Duvet Cover Review: Today’s duvet and duvet covers are so much more then a rough cloth bag filled with goose or duck feathers. Today, when you buy a purple duvet cover you will have purchased soft down filled water proof fabrics that are highly sanitized, super clean and completely dedusted. In less expensive knock off products, the down or filling always ends up being pushed to the edges, instead of staying evenly fluffed for warmth throughout the duvet. Today’s technique keeps the down or poly fill uniform throughout the cloth bag, so your duvet won’t seem so lumpy and ruin the designer look of your bedroom.
So what is a duvet cover anyway? Well, a duvet cover is actually nothing more than a gigantic pillow case that covers the duvet, itself. Most of the time, the word duvet is used interchangeably to refer to both the duvet and the duvet cover. It is also used interchangeably with the word comforter, usually seen on signs during sales of comforters, duvet covers and other bedding items. But they are not the same thing.
Duvet, pronounced “due-vay” is an old European word used to describe a cloth bag filled with down and feathers. American designers call it a duvet insert. They refer to the cover as a duvet cover. A duvet cover is the protective cover that slips over the down filled duvet. A duvet cover is actually little more than a big decorative pillow case. Most Americans, say experts, simply drop the cover part of the description and simply call everything a “duvet” regardless of whether it is the bag filled with down or the cover of the bag of down.
The way to know if you’re looking at a comforter, or if you’re examining a duvet and duvet cover is this. Comforters don’t have detachable covers, whereas duvets are always designed to be used with a washable duvet cover because laundering the duvet itself is impossible. So the problem is solved by interchangeable and decorative duvet covers, such as a purple duvet cover, for instance. Comforters can and should be washed , but this also makes them less efficient for warmth. Repeat launderings also shortens the lifespan of a comforter. Most folks use comforters in combination with blankets or other multiple layers, something unnecessary with duvets.
When selecting a duvet and duvet cover, choose eiderdown for your filling. Mind you, eiderdown is very expensive, but well worth the money, if you can afford it. Look for one that is sewn well, since you don’t want the stuffing to escape through small holes in the cover. Duvet covers tend to be made from cotton so they are also porous in nature. A quilted duvet is even better because it ensures that the stuffing won’t clump into one section of the bedding. If you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint, then you should be able to find a purple duvet cover in natural or organic weave, to match any theme or color scheme that you can create. You will be able to match any aspect of your bedroom décor, whether you prefer solids, stripes or even plaids. It is all up to you and your creative instincts.
