Your choice of duvet is essential to enjoying soft, comfortable nights. Below you’ll find some tips to help you make the right choices.
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.
It’s important to consider the size of your bed. Leave an edge of about 30cm on each side to keep out cold air.
Opt for a duvet measuring 140x200cm or 200x200cm.
For one person, a 200x200cm duvet will suffice, while a 240x220cm duvet is better suited to two people.
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.
For optimal comfort, the biggest standard size of 260x240cm would be the best choice.
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.

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

We offer a variety of options to meet specific needs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Synthetic-fiber duvets are recommended for people prone to allergies.
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.
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:
Choose from several options for your synthetic duvet, each offering a different aesthetic:
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.
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.
For winter, warm duvets are best for people who easily feel cold and for poorly heated rooms with temperatures below 18°C.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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-treated fabrics repel liquids without affecting permeability. This technology allows liquids to bead and then slip off the fabric’s surface.
