We have selected the synthetic materials which will give you most comfort as you sleep. There are different fibres on the market, at a variety of prices, for synthetic duvet covers and pillowcases.
Silicone coated hollow fibre: The hollow fibres are silicone-coated, thus slippy. They don’t therefore remain trapped in a corner of the duvet, but are spread throughout the whole duvet. The warmth is therefore better distributed and the duvet is softer. The aim is to imitate the fluffy effect of a goose or duck duvet. All our synthetic duvets, as well as
our ZEN and NIRVANA pillows, are filled with silicone-coated hollow fibre. Microfibre: Microfibres are silicone-coated hollow fibres with a diameter which is half the size, so they give the
synthetic duvet characteristics which are similar to a natural duvet, like our NIRVANA duvet. The smaller the diameter, the more insulating and fluffier the duvet will be. Silicone-coated ball fibre: Ball fibres, used for our EDEN pillow, have even more elasticity than hollow fibre but are less ?technical? and so more competitively priced than hollow fibre.
Two types of fabrics are used for our synthetic duvet covers: 57thread/cm2 cotton and 200TC2 percale. The tight weave of this pure cotton fabric guarantees that the cover is waterproof, so it does not allow the filling to pass through. As respect for nature is so important to us, we have developed products which are gentle for the environment. Our anti-dust mite ZEN duvet benefits from a 100% natural treatment based on essential oils from lemon, lavender and eucalyptus, which remains effective wash after wash. This duvet also has a Teflon treatment, which allows the cover to retain its new look for longer, protects it against stains and helps its care. Two types of finishes match these covers: printed biais or piping and double stitching which ensure that the products are hard-wearing. The way that the filling is arranged and sectioned plays an essential role in the performance and appeal of the duvet. We use two types of stitches for our synthetic duvets: ? Wave stitching, which allows the filing to be stabilised by bands across the whole duvet. The filling thus remains uniformly distributed. ? Square stitching, which contains the filling and prevents it from moving in the cover. This stitching ensures absolute stability.
Two types of fabrics are used for the cover of our synthetic pillows: 57 thread/cm2 pure cotton and quilted pure cotton. The latter is sectioned for a better distribution of the fibres in the pillow, and thus greater comfort. Matching our ZEN duvet, our pillow of the same name is anti-dust mite and anti-stain treated. These covers have three types of finishes: piping and simple stitching, reversed stain stitch and zip closing which allows filling to be added or removed for more or less softness.
Originally, synthetic duvets aimed to imitate natural duvets.Nowadays, they compensate for a lack of natural products
and are appealing with their competitive prices.
