Duvets - The Inside Story

There are several pieces of a puzzle that all contribute to the quality of down bedding. These are the down filling, the fabric covering or ticking, the design, and the workmanship. Our Website will give you the confidence in knowing what the true differences are between low, medium, and high quality down products.

The most comfortable duvets are the warmest and lightest. You will notice the fill weights are lower because the downs St Genève use have tremendous insulating power and puff up to be very thick, yet very lightweight. This is made possible by their expertise in design and the choice of mature downs with high loft, density, and clinging ability.

All St Genève luxury style down proof coverings are made with genuine Egyptian Species Cotton, which are milled in Germany. Germany is world famous for weaving the finest down proof cloths, and St Genève have had a long relationship with one of Germany's best mills. This mill has been making down proof ticking for generations. They have the expertise to weave and finish fabric that is very lightweight and soft, yet will remain down proof for decades.

For the finest duvets, nothing less will suffice.
