Many people know what a duvet cover is, but what is a duvet ("due-vay"), and where does it come from? In the United States, we hear the phrases "duvet covers" and "down comforters" and overall, most people know what those items are. In other countries such as Canada and Europe, "duvet" refers to the actual comforter (down comforter) and the cover is the protection to the duvet much like a pillowcase is to a pillow. Duvet is a French word that translates to "down" (referring to the down in birds); this is where the United States gets the phrase "down comforter". As a result, a "duvet cover" refers to the covering of a duvet/down comforter.
When it comes to cleaning the duvet cover, it really depends on the fabrics. If you have a silk or high quality cotton then you won't really be able to just toss them in the washing machine. They will require more care, however most duvet covers are very easy to care for. That is also one of their many benefits, the fact that they can keep your comforter from getting dirty.
So now you can no longer claim that you don't know what a duvet is. This type of bedding that was once uniquely European has now made it literally around the world and it will go by different names. In some places it's known as a duvet, others as a dyne or doona. It has been called a continental quilt and in Pakistan it is even known as a Ralli Quilt. Whatever the name, for many it spells warmth and comfort!
Duvet covers not only make your bed room look elegant but they also give the warmth that you need during your sleep. They usually make your room to have that new look that you have always dreamed of.
Before we look at their importance, let us first try to understand what duvets are and where they originated from. A duvet is just like a bag filled with warm fabrics like feathers or wool. Duvets originated from the French and it basically means down. Many people do not know the difference between a duvet and a comforter. There is a very big difference but they both serve the same purpose. A comforter in contrast is sewn all round whereas the duvet has an outer cover which resembles that of a pillow case.
