How to store down duvets and pillows?

July 11, 2023

A large number of our customers have extra sets of duvets and pillows at home, for guests or to change comforters depending on the season.
When we do not use them for many months, it is worth knowing how to store our down bedding so that it retains its resilience and does not lose its enveloping fluffiness.

Why store down comforters and pillows properly?

Improper storage of down bedding can lead to a partial loss of their insulating and thermoregulatory properties. Down filling is one of the lightest natural fillings, is characterized by excellent elasticity, insulates against cold but also against heat. Goose down is considered one of the best natural fillings. However, due to its delicacy - improper storage of a down comforter can lead to distortion and "clumping" of the down, and the down can lose its resilience and fluffiness.

How to store down quilts and pillows - practical tips used by our Family for nearly 100 years

  1. Down quilts and pillows like space, it is good to give them more space and not to squeeze, press, roll or crush them, because the quilt may deform.
  2. It's a good idea to keep quilts and pillows in covers only made of natural materials and sufficiently spacious for the size of the quilt or pillow. We pack our quilts in thick cotton covers with gold thread designed for storage. The cover can be viewed here. Down needs to breathe. We don't keep quilts in the plastic bags that some manufacturers pack quilts in. We don't pack down quilts in vacuum bags. The down will clump, won't be as fluffy and will lose its unique properties.
  3. Let's keep bedding in closets, drawers, in a lockable container under the bed (if it is spacious enough), in boxes made of natural materials.
  4. We can put a bag of sun-dried lavender in the closet or drawer, and remember to shake out and air out the comforter well before packing it in a cotton cover.
