Construction of a duvet. The external material used in most duvets is cotton as it is both economical and comfortable. However. you do have options of silk or cotton-silk blend duvets too. The thread count for duvets is almost always high as the filling may tend to seep out otherwise. It is also a good idea to invest in a duvet cover as it makes maintenance much easier. A duvet cover protects against spills and general wear and tear. If you are looking to go in for a change of colours and hues around the room. it`s much more cost effective to replace a duvet cover than a duvet itself.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make. which gave them value. Also. both types are excellent insulators. but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
Although duvets are each commonly used in European countries. in the United States there still seems to become some confusion as to the difference between a comforter and a duvet and a duvet comforter cover. Many retailers. when promoting a duvet. will indicate that a duvet is to be used to cover a comforter. In essence this is not true. A duvet cover is used to cover a duvet. but some people will use a comforter in place of the duvet. hence the phrase duvet comforter cover.
From this practical and utilitarian beginning in a European peasant hut. the duvet cover has developed to include being the center of a modern bedroom decor. It still protects. but it has also become a fashion item that is easily changed and stored. The original comforters and covers were plain and drab. but eventually the cover`s decorative possibilities were realized.
