With proper maintenance, your duvets and pillows from Quilts of Denmark will stay fluffy and luxurious for many years.

Quality guarantee

For our duvet and pillowcases, we always use 100% clean, Oeko-Tex-labelled cotton in a good, long fibred quality that makes for a strong, durable and flexible fabric. Our natural filling is washed and heat treated according to the standards in the DOWNAFRESH certification, which means that it is guaranteed free from mites and other allergenic compounds. 

Rest assured

Quilts of Denmark cooperates with a number of independent organisations about ensuring the quality and the integrity of our products, as well as the sustainability of our production. Our duvets and pillows are labelled with several certifications, which are a guarantee that they comply with all regulations and that they keep their promise.
