What is a Duvet Comforter Cover? Duvets originated in Europe. and were made from down feathers of the eider duck. which is known for its usefulness as an insulator and is called eider down. So what exactly is a duvet? A duvet is essentially a bag filled with feathers. that you use as a blanket. So. you may be wondering. what exactly is the difference between a duvet and a comforter? Well. a comforter is to be used in conjunction with other bedding. The traditional use for a comforter is you make your bed with a bottom sheet. a top sheet. one or more blankets. and then the comforter on top. A duvet however is usually used all by itself. When using a duvet. the common practice is that you do not use sheets or blankets. you use only a duvet.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make. which gave them value. Also. both types are excellent insulators. but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
Although duvets are each commonly used in European countries. in the United States there still seems to become some confusion as to the difference between a comforter and a duvet and a duvet comforter cover. Many retailers. when promoting a duvet. will indicate that a duvet is to be used to cover a comforter. In essence this is not true. A duvet cover is used to cover a duvet. but some people will use a comforter in place of the duvet. hence the phrase duvet comforter cover.
