Tiffney Marechal Duvet Covers April 03, 2018 19:59:45
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.
Once you have the duvet insert measurements the measurements of your duvet cover can range from being the same size as the insert to being about two inches larger in both directions. For instance if your queen size insert measures 85" wide by 90" long your duvet cover should be from 85 to 87" wide by 90 to 92" long. Since both insert and cover are made of cloth and flexible these limits can be pushed a little but be sure the item being purchased can be returned before going too far outside of the determined range.
The duvet can be used by itself or fitted into a specially designed cover to prevent dirt and stains; this cover can be cleaned regularly. Cleaning a duvet may not be necessary unless it is dirtied or damaged beyond reuse in which case it’s easier to replace the old with a new one much like a mattress.
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.
