We often get asked about cleaning duvets and pillows, and are here to answer those questions!

When should a duvet be washed? That depends on how long it's been used. We recommend having it washed when it's between 5 to 7 years old. You can tell it needs a wash when it no longer gives the same comfort it did in the beginning, when the down slides to the bottom of the duvet and doesn't feel fluffy anymore, or of course when the cover is dirty or slightly damaged from friction. Feel free to bring it by and we will be happy to take a look at it!

Is your duvet younger or older than 5 to 7 years and are you not sure whether it’s in need of a wash? You can bring it in to any of our stores and we will gladly take a look at it for you!

Just like a duvet, a down pillow also needs a thorough cleaning every now and then. As it's used more intensely than a duvet we recommend having it professionally washed every 3 to 5 years. The washing process is the same as with a down duvet, the contents of the pillow are washed separately from the cover.
