Duvets and Comforters have been used in Europe for hundreds of years. Long before the advent of "central heating", a wood fire was the means of heating the house - with the bedrom usually unheated.
The insulating quality of down has long been recognized. Of all man-made fibres, nothing duplicate the qualities of down.
The traditional comforter was merely a large bed sized bag filled with down, or often a combination of down and feathers. A problem with this with this design was obvious. The down didn’t stay on the body.
All duvets/comforters made by Nova Scotian Down Products are guaranteed to have Canadian Grey Goose down. The sizes and quality of down used have been calculated to give maximum of comfort and ensure a luxury product. The channels are approximately 8” wide with interior baffles, down filled by hand and cleverly stitched through. The center panels have slightly more down than the outer ones. The channels lets the down travel to the upper or lower parts of your duvet which permits some adjusting, and makes your duvet comfortable in most seasons.
Although these comforters have been made with the highest quality of 100% cotton down proof ticking, it is recommended that a cover be made, and the comforter be put inside.
Pillows for all bed sizes are also made to complement the duvets. They are double-seamed and filled with a combination of down and feathers to give a resilient, puffy pillow. A pillow protector is also suggested to prevent stain and soils.
Featherbeds, like icing on a cake, give you the most pleasurable sleep possible. The feathers and down are held in a sectioned off, baffled cotton container. Elastic corner straps are used to keep the featherbed directly on top of the mattress.
Decorator pillows and bolsters are also available for the bedroom and living room in a wide selection of shapes and sizes. For your personal comfort, try our neck rests, Euro back pad and the Lower bad pad.
