It's worth noting that it takes special measures beyond a simple run through the washer to kill off dust mites. Dust mites have been shown to be more effectively killed off if certain essential oils are used in the washing process such as pine, eucalyptus, or peppermint oil. These can kill a large majority of the dust mites in the duvet and will also leave a refreshing scent. Unfortunately just killing dust mites is note quite enough. Most allergies to dust mites are to their waste products and their bodies (dead or live) and so it might be effective to shake out or even beat your duvet with a broom as it's suspended from a line. After this you will need to redistribute the filling material so that it is evenly placed. If you start out with a dust mite proof duvet cover you will not have to take such extreme cleaning measures of your duvet, you can simply focus your cleaning on the duvet cover on a regular basis and still avoid allergies related to dust mites in a dirty duvet.
Now lay the duvet perfectly straight along the bed. Notice how there are no lumps or humps within, both the duvet and its cover are perfectly aligned.
Matelasse is a French word meaning, "quilted" or cushioned. Usage with fabric refers to hand quilted textiles. It is a fabric which can either be hand-stitched to produce the decorative features of the fabric or woven on a jacquard loom that could automatically weave complicated patterns. Although it is unpadded, matelasse textiles appear to be one because it is heavy and thick and very suitable for duvet cover bedding or beautiful bedspreads.
Duvets are traditionally made of eiderdown, though there are a few companies that use different materials. Eiderdown is harvested from elder ducks, and is the soft, underlying layer of feathers that is used for insulation. The eider ducks are not harmed when eiderdown is harvested. In fact, the ducks are generally wild, nesting in specific areas where the eider is harvested and, due to their interaction with humans, are quite friendly. This makes duvets that are stuffed with eiderdown a very environmentally friendly way to make luxurious bedding.
