Our duvets are constructed in one of three ways. Box stitch, baffle box and quilted.
What is a Box stitch duvet?
Box stitch duvets are also referred to as ‘sewn through’. The top and the bottom cover are sewn together in a box pattern to form boxes. Each box contains the same amount of filling inside, held in place by the stitching. The filling is evenly distributed across the duvet so you won't have any cold patches or lumpy bits in your duvet. Box stitching is best suited to lighter, lower tog duvets as less space is needed for the smaller amount of fill.
What is a baffle box duvet?
Baffle box duvets are made from lots of carefully constructed fabric boxes. These boxes are made from strips of fabric sewn between the top and the bottom cover. They keep the filling evenly spaced across the duvet to prevent cold patches and lumpy areas. A baffle box duvet gives the filling more space to circulate and aerate, making it better for heavier, higher tog duvets. A baffle box duvet is smoother than a box stitch duvet.
What is a quilted duvet?
Quilted duvets feel quite different to traditional duvets. The fill is worked into a thick fabric known as wadding. This wadding is laid inside the fabric casing and sewn into the characteristic diamond shape. This creates a flatter duvet; there are no pockets of fill to puff up. Quilted duvets don't need to be shaken out in the same way as traditional duvets. We use a quilted construction for our natural duvets filled with wool, silk and cotton.
