What is a Duvet & Duvet Cover ?

Duvet Cover

Duvet is essentially a soft flat bag filled with down, feathers or a synthetic alternative. These are inserted into a removable cover called Duvet cover, much like a pillow and pillow case. Both are designed to be used alone (with no sheets) because the insert can be removed and the outer bag/cover can be washed, but many people use them with sheets anyway.

Many people like these covers  because they reduce the complexity of making a bed, as it is a single covering instead of the combination of bed sheets, blankets, quilts and other bed covers.

Even you can make duvet cover yourself at home. Just find a fabric of your choice and sew.

What is a Comforter ?


Typically, a comforter is a thick, quilted, fluffy blanket that is used to keep you warm. It is usually filled with synthetic fiber filler which is quilted or stitched to secure the filling and keep it evenly distributed. Unlike a duvet, the comforter only forms one piece of all of your bed linens. It is intended to sit on top of your sheets and those who want a layered look might prefer this. Caring for your comforter is easy as you can just place it in the wash with your other bedding.
