Organic cotton percale outer with untreated Tencel fibres.
Tencel fibres is where sustainability meets high-tech. Tencel fibres are made from cellulose - a raw natural fibre - that is derived from wood (eucalyptus) grown in sustainable forestry on marginal land not used for food crops. An elaborate process turns the cellulose into Tencel fibres (all chemicals are kept in a closed loop system). This low-energy process, which uses chemicals that are much more environmentally sensitive than those used for the processing of bamboo, was awarded the 'European Award for the Environment' by the EU.
Tencel fibre is biodegradable and is recognised by GOTS as different from other manufactured fibres. It's structure is very smooth and stable and it has an excellent capacity to absorb moisture. All this while being better at retaining warmth than cotton. It is also machine washable at 60 degrees. It is the ideal choice for people who suffer from allergies as it combines the convenience of a synthetic fibre with the comfort and healthy qualities of natural fibres.
100% plant fibres = 100% vegan friendly.
The duvet features a 'mummy-style' quilting pattern (wider at the top and narrowing at the feet) which gives the duvet more drape so it can better 'envelop' the sleeper and keep out draughts. Duvets are also equipped with cotton ties on the corners which allow them to be combined with other duvets for extra weight and warmth.
The quilting design may vary.
This is a mid-weight, mid-warmth duvet suitable for most of the year. Great for people who like a plant-fibre duvet with good volume and drape and need to wash their duvet often.
