Given proper care, a high quality duvet will last for 20, 25, 30 years or more
. Then it can be recovered into a new casing and last for even longer. It will be a pleasure to use each and every night. A cheap low quality duvet will last perhaps 3 years, and will not be a pleasure to use, therefore they are not cheap, just very poor value.
Higher quality duvets will provide a wider comfort range; they will be warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer than lower quality duvets. This is because higher quality down is better at all the things that down is famous for (such as insulation, lightness, breathability, etc) than lower quality down.
The table below shows how this works.
Higher quality down proof fabrics also contribute to better breathability. In fact, all our German fabrics now have a special finish that makes them even more breathable than other cottons.
Choose the right weight
These duvets are recommended for average sleepers in cool to cold bedrooms. Regular duvets are guaranteed to be warm enough for a period of 10 years, or St.geneve will add more down at no charge (providing that the duvet has been properly cared for, and a duvet cover has been used at all times). Please note that down cannot be removed from a duvet.
These duvets are recommended for warm sleepers, and for heated bedrooms.
These duvets are recommended for very warm sleepers, in warm conditions.
He's hot, she's not. We can make a duvet with different weights on the two sides, for example; a lightweight on one side, and a regular on the other.
Choose the right size
We make our duvets to fit on typical mattresses with about 12" hanging over the sides and foot. This is so that when one person gets into their twin bed, or two people get into their double, queen, or king bed, the duvet will be able to be pulled up to settle down around the sleepers without dragging over the side of the bed. If you put too big a duvet on the bed (say, a king sized duvet on a queen bed), it will hang over the side of the bed, and the sleeper will be pulling against this weight through the night, making for a less comfortable sleep.
Super size duvets

That being said, we can supply special oversized duvets and duvet covers for those clients that wish to cover their extra deep mattress. Note that a mattress up to 12" thick will be covered by our normal sizes.
