Material - Comforter covers can be made of either cotton or silk. These two materials are some of the most popular ones in the market. Soft woolen covers are good for the cold season.
The solution is to measure your duvet insert before you shop. The root problem is that manufacturers have not made either down comforters or duvet covers to standard measurable sizes. If you are buying a duvet cover for use over another kind of comforter quilt or blanket the need to measure your insert is even more obvious. It is important to get help when measuring your duvet insert because two people can pull the insert tight and make sure the end of the measuring tape is even with the edge of the insert.
For the person who likes to decorate and make dynamic change these covers are an exciting tool. If you have three or four covers you can change covers and the room’s appearance every few months. If you use decorative pillows you can enhance the bedroom’s appearance even more. Choose your cover and pillow colors so that the pillows can be used with more than one duvet.
Duvet covers have been around for a long time but most Americans were not aware of them until relatively recently. Through the twentieth century their general acceptance and popularity has gone from obscure to a level where even many husbands know what they are. The development of the duvet will provide a little background to the advantages that duvet covers will bring to your decorating arsenal.
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.
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.
