What is a duvet and pillow cover and why do I need it?

The difference between a duvet and a comforter

The main difference between a duvet and comforter is that a comforter is just one piece of bedding while a duvet requires two separate pieces — an insert and a cover.

A comforter is usually quilted with the filling evenly distributed, while a duvet has an insert that works as the fill. The duvet then slips into the duvet cover like a pillow in a pillowcase.

What is a duvet cover and the benefits of using one?

A duvet cover is a protective layer that the duvet or comforter slips into and has a closure usually a zip or buttons.

Because duvets and comforters can be expensive and difficult to clean and not to mention a hassle to dry, duvet covers are useful because they protect your comforter during use and can be easily removed in minutes and washed in the washing machine.

With duvet covers, you can quickly and easily change the look of your bed and bedroom without having to completely redecorate. At Kawaiies we offer a range of designs, patterns, and colors to suit your bedroom look and feel.


Should I use a duvet cover on a comforter?

A comforter is ready to use without a duvet cover. However, you can use a duvet cover on a comforter if you wish to protect it from dirt and stains. A comforter can work as the insert for the duvet cover. We highly recommend bed sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases so you can keep your bed fresh and clean with the least amount of effort.
