How Important Are Duvets & Duvet CoversRoyal Beddings
In stores like ours where you can find all sorts of items and products for your bed, oftentimes there are a lot of terms and names such as duvet, duvet cover, comforter, etc. They may sound relatively similar, but their meaning represents something completely else, and we often receive questions about this topic. Based on that, we decided to break down the definition of a duvet cover, and what exactly is duvet and a duvet cover.
More About Duvets
Duvet is a type of bedding that represents a soft flat bag filled with down, feathers, wool, or any other synthetic alternative. Duvets are placed on top of bedding to act as a thermal insulator and keep you warm during chilly nights. It is covered with a removable cover, the duvet cover.
Duvet is originating from Europe, it is a French term meaning “down” because the insulation has been made from down feathers, which is a great thermal insulator. In the US, the word duvet and comforter are often being referred for the same thing, but there are some key differences between duvet and comforter. In our next article, we will talk more about the comforters.

Generally speaking, a duvet is much easier and convenient to use, since a combination of blankets, sheets, quilts, and other bed coverings takes a lot more time to set up.
Duvet cover is a protective casing that fits over a duvet, the analogy is very similar to a pillow and a pillowcase. Like any other cover, it is being used to protect the duvet from stains, grease, bacteria, and makes it easier to wash. Most duvet covers have a closure, which makes it easy to apply to your duvet and keeps it in place.
