Choosing your duvet

Your choice of duvet is essential to enjoying soft, comfortable nights. Below you’ll find some tips to help you make the right choices.

Choosing a size

We offer four standard duvet sizes: 140x200cm, 200x200cm, 220x240cm and 240x260cm. However, if these sizes don’t meet your requirements, our experienced seamstresses can custom-make duvets to your exact specifications. Simply supply us with the desired dimensions by using the "Tailored" tool available on the website's product pages.

How to choose a duvet based on bed size? 

It’s important to consider the size of your bed. Leave an edge of about 30cm on each side to keep out cold air.

Size Guide

Choosing a duvet for single beds (90x190cm or 90x200cm)

Opt for a duvet measuring 140x200cm or 200x200cm.

Choosing a duvet for double beds (140x200cm)

For one person, a 200x200cm duvet will suffice, while a 240x220cm duvet is better suited to two people.

Choosing a duvet for queen-size beds (160x200cm)

Here you could select either a 240x220cm or 260x240cm option; the choice would depend on the sizes of the bed’s occupants or how much you move during your sleep.

Choosing a duvet for king-sized beds (180x200cm)

For optimal comfort, the biggest standard size of 260x240cm would be the best choice.

Choosing a duvet for a child

Duvets for babies

Your baby deserves a quality product to ensure good, solid sleep, so it’s important to choose products designed to ensure maximum comfort and well-being.


We advise that duvets or pillows only be used from the age of nine months, and that you select special duvets measuring 100cm to 120cm in length (depending on the size of the cot).


NB: Baby duvets can be the same width as the mattress.  


Baby duvets: 60x100cm, 60x120cm, 75x120cm, 80x120cm

Choosing a duvet for a crib

This practical option is available for babies and small children. We advise using duvets and pillows from the age of nine months.

  • Crib for babies: from 80cm long (crib) to 140cm in length.
  • Crib for children: can be expanded up to 190cm or 200cm in length (classic single bed).


Opt for a duvet ranging from 100cm to 140cm in length.


Duvet for cribs: 60x100cm, 60x120cm, 75x120cm, 80x120cm


NB: Baby duvets can be the same width as the mattress.


For bigger beds, opt for a duvet measuring 150cm in length.

When to put a duvet in the crib

We advise using a sleeping bag up to the age of nine months to prevent your baby choking on the duvet. If in doubt, talk to other parents about their children’s sleeping habits.  

Stuffing choices

We offer a variety of options to meet specific needs.

What is stuffing?

A duvet is made of a fabric casing filled with stuffing to give it the desired shape and comfort. There are two main types of stuffing: natural and synthetic.


The type and amount of stuffing determine heat, puffiness, longevity and how it should be maintained.

Down or synthetic?

Natural stuffing offers increased puffiness and a longer shelf life. Its scarcity makes it an exceptional product with a proud tradition.


Synthetic stuffing is more affordable without compromising on comfort, while the fibers offer hypoallergenic qualities and easy maintenance.


The choice between natural and synthetic is a personal one and should depend on what you need for a good night’s sleep.

Why choose a down duvet?

Nobility


Traditional and authentic, down is Nature’s answer to keeping us warm and dry (for longer than the synthetic alternative). Down’s natural lightness, puffiness and warmth make it an exceptional product offering excellent thermoregulation to avoid sweating, while the feathers provide elasticity and a pleasant weight on your body.

New duvet / Eco-friendly duvet


The word "down" guarantees superior quality and indicates that the material comes directly from the farms with its properties intact.


In the interest of preserving the environment, products are filled with recycled natural stuffing. After intensive washing, spinning, sterilization at 120°C and meticulous sorting, the material is subjected to anti-mite treatment for people prone to allergies. This refurbished natural material continues to offer the comfort and thermoregulatory qualities characteristic of down stuffing.

Duck down / goose down


Thanks to its structure, goose down stores more air, making it puffier and warmer than duck down. It takes feathers from about 50 geese to make a duvet (versus 72 ducks). Its scarcity also makes it an extremely sought-after material.

Respect for animal welfare


None of our duvet stuffing comes from live animals. Our duvets and feathers come from ducks and geese raised for meat consumption. No animal is hurt in the process of plucking.

Silk, another natural fiber


Silk is a natural material of animal origin offering finesse and lightness. It also offers a cool, fresh feel when slipping underneath the duvet, while the warmth provided adapts to body temperature.

Why choose a synthetic duvet?

Innovation


Thanks to technological advances, synthetic fiber offers anti-allergy and thermoregulatory properties, a soft touch, lightness, puffiness, etc. It’s important to take the time to become familiar with the characteristics before making a choice.

Hypoallergenic


Synthetic-fiber duvets are recommended for people prone to allergies.

Affordable


DODO® is committed to offering quality synthetic duvets at affordable prices to allow you the choice of changing with the seasons and your desires. The company is also strongly committed to maintaining French manufacturing without compromising on price and quality.

Which stitching?

The choice of the casing’s stitching is an important consideration because it allows even distribution of stuffing for a good night’s sleep.


For down duvets:

  • open-box stitching is ideal since it allows for optimal distribution of the down throughout the duvet.


Choose from several options for your synthetic duvet, each offering a different aesthetic:

  • Linear stitching
  • Wave stitching
  • Hexagon stitching
  • Box stitching

Warmth options

What is grammage?

Grammage refers to the weight of the stuffing. It is expressed in g/m² (grams per square meter). The higher the grammage is, the warmer the duvet.

NB: For an equal distribution of warmth, natural down will be lighter than a synthetic product since the grammage is lower. The higher the percentage of down, the lighter the duvet.

Duvets by seasons



Summer


For summer and in-between seasons, a light duvet is recommended. Light duvets are ideal for heat-sensitive people and rooms heated above 22°C.

Winter


For winter, warm duvets are best for people who easily feel cold and for poorly heated rooms with temperatures below 18°C.

All-season duvets


Temperate duvets can be used all year and are suitable for most people, ideally in rooms with temperatures of between 18°C and 22°C.

The four-seasons duvet

By tying together a light and a mid-season duvet at their links, you create a proper winter duvet. Separate them and enjoy the benefits of one duvet perfect for use during fall, and another during summer.

Choosing a duvet based on room temperature


Light duvets are ideal for rooms heated over 22°C. Warm duvets are perfect for rooms with temperatures of below 18 °C. Temperate duvets are suitable for rooms heated to between 18°C and 22°C.

Can a duvet regulate temperature?

Thermoregulating duvets adapt to changes in room and body temperature thanks to high-quality synthetic fibers and innovative technology. The Climarelle ® system features microcapsules that store and redistribute heat for when the temperature falls around the sleeper.

Which treatment?

Anti-allergy

We offer a range of anti-allergy duvets for people prone to allergies. Whatever the treatment, DODO® strives to ensures that they’re safe and that your sleeping experience stays healthy and peaceful! Treatment is applied to the stuffing or envelope, or both.

Anti-dust mite treatment


DODO’s anti-mite treatment neutralises mites and their eggs to guarantees a hygienic, fresh product. This hypoallergenic treatment is tested under dermatological control and remains effective even after frequent washing.

Anti-mite with natural active ingredients PRONEEM®


Neem oil has been used for millennia in traditional Indian medicine, Ayurveda. A powerful pest deterrent, Neem oil is scientifically proven in its action against mites. The Neem is a tropical tree (family of the French neem) harvested for its olives. Neem oil is extracted from olives by supervised cold pressing. Proneem ® is composed of 100% natural active ingredients.

Anti-stain treatment

Anti-stain-treated fabrics repel liquids without affecting permeability. This technology allows liquids to bead and then slip off the fabric’s surface.
