A duvet cover is an outsized cover slipped over a comforter in order to keep it clean. It is sometimes referred to as a comforter cover and has an opening at one end with zipper or button closures. It is used as a protection for comforter/duvet investment and helps to to overcome the hassle of frequent washing of the comforter. Moreover a duvet cover is more easily removable than a comforter. People who suffer from allergies benefit largely from the use of duvet covers, since it seals the allergens inside. Therefore you could still enjoy the quality and comfort of a duvet cover unaffected by allergies

A duvet cover while being a versatile bedroom accessory, provides warmth during colder climes and provides lightweight cover (with a simple change) during the summer. To get the best use of your duvet cover, it is necessary to have two weights to fit inside it.  This enables you to maintain the same look in your bedroom in summer as well as in winter by replacing the light cover for a heavier one. If you are looking for a change in your bedroom, you could perhaps use one duvet with multiple duvet covers

A luxury duvet cover is a cover, usually decorative that is slipped over a comforter to protect it from excessive wear, while keeping it clean. Designer and luxury duvet covers are available in many designs, styles and fabrics from silk, microfiber, wood fibres, damask to Egyptian cotton with intricate embroidery, country frills and patchwork. Luxury duvet covers can be found to match with the theme of your bedroom.

Hollow fiber duvets are generally available at very low prices while the luxury duvet covers are filled with goose down. These may go up to hundreds of dollars, depending on the variety of goose down selected, leaving a dent in your cashpile. A typical example of a luxury duvet cover may be a reversible chenille duvet cover with tasseled corners together with a breathtaking twisted cord edging providing the ultimate in comfort and luxurious in appearance. This is offset by a beautifully gathered bed skirt in graceful silk and complete with self ruched shams to give the user the best in style and sophistication.

The thread count (tc) which is the number of threads per square inch on the fabric determines the quality and comfort of a luxury duvet cover. Thread counts vary from 800tc to 1200 tc. The uncompromised artistry of some of the luxury duvet covers creates an aura of timeless beauty.
