Carressa Fontaine Duvet Covers March 20, 2018 20:51:37
These imports from Europe have become adapted bed mates by many American families. When these flat bed covers first arrived in the U.S. they were stuffed with feathers or down feathers from geese or ducks. Down feathers are the soft feathers under the top feathers nearest to the skin. Birds and fowls survive the harshest weathers with only their feather coverings.
Also with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves not necessarily requiring a duvet cover.
