Beautiful bedding derived from nature

  

At Devon Duvets we respect nature and bring to you a collection of products that support nature by using the natural, renewable resources with respect.  By respecting nature and using only renewable resources, we do not exhaust the supply and we can therefore all enjoy the benefits of nature yet at the same time contribute towards a more balanced earth and help protect it for future generations.

HOW WE SUPPORT NATURE

ALL of the wool used in our wool duvets, wool mattress toppers and wool pillows is 100% platinum certified wool from sheep reared by British Farmers. 

The wool is shorn from live sheep each year during the Spring and Summer months in the centuries old tradition of British Farming and during the year the sheep grow wonderful new fleeces to enjoy in our luxurious natural wool duvets, wool pillows and wool mattress toppers made the next season exclusively for you. 

As well as being sustainable, wool is both recyclable and biodegradable.

The standard of animal husbandry on British Farms is extremely high and you can be assured that the sheep providing our wool are some of the best cared for sheep in the world - a good reason to use only British wool.

Once gathered, our wool is cleaned and processed in England without the use of bleach or chemicals and never leaves the country. It is then transported to our Devon Workshops to be handcrafted by our seamstresses into luxurious wool duvets, pillows and mattress toppers, keeping the carbon footprint as small as possible.

At Devon Duvets we make a conscious effort to support British businesses to source our packaging, labels, printing etc. and prefer to use companies that are equally as conscious in operating in an environmentally friendly way.

Disposal of any waste materials from our workshops is controlled with the majority of it being recycled for example, our offcuts of cotton go onto being the lining of rubber gloves and some items are used by a local children's charity for artwork - nothing is wasted.

We continue to make changes to the way in which we package our products to ensure it is as environmentally responsible as possible.  We only use recycled cardboard for our boxes and the small amount of plastic we need to use to pack duvets is biodegradable.  When sourced, processed and handcrafted into products in England by Devon Duvets, wool is responsible, supportive of nature yet luxurious and wonderful to sleep under.

HOW WE SUPPORT NATURE

We think about how we can support nature at every step of the way when crafting our award-winning British wool products.

How we support nature by only using British wool

ALL of the wool used in our wool duvets, wool mattress toppers and wool pillows is high quality, fully traceable 100% British wool from sheep reared by British farmers who we know adhere to the highest standards of animal welfare. Our wool is certified by British Wool.

The wool is shorn and gathered from live sheep each year during the Spring and Summer months in the centuries old tradition of British farming. it is a truly sustainable fibre as the sheep regrow their fleeces for the colder months, ready to be shorn the following year. This means that every year we are able to obtain beautiful fleeces for making our luxurious natural wool duvets, wool pillows and wool mattress toppers, made exclusively for you. 

The standard of animal husbandry on British farms is extremely high and you can be assured that the sheep providing our wool are some of the best cared for sheep in the world - a good reason to use only British wool.

How we support nature in preparing our wool

Once gathered, our wool is cleaned and processed in England without the use of bleach or chemicals and never leaves the country. It is then transported to our Devon workshops to be handcrafted by our seamstresses into luxurious wool duvets, pillows and mattress toppers, keeping the carbon footprint as small as possible. When sourced, processed and handcrafted into products in England by Devon Duvets, wool is responsible, supportive of nature yet luxurious and wonderful to sleep under.

When the time comes to replace your Devon Duvets duvet, topper or pillow, it's good to know that as well as being sustainable, wool is both recyclable and biodegradable. It won't clog up landfil for decades to come but will biodegrade releasing nutrients into the ground.  The wool can even be used for composting for use in your flower, fruit or vegetable beds.

How we support nature with our choice of cotton

Cotton is a natural, 100% plant-based fibre and, as such, it works in perfect partnership with the 100% natural wool in our duvets. Our 260 thread count 100% cotton casing fabric is woven from cotton certified by Better Cotton, a global initiative that promotes and supports better environmentally friendly and socio-economic cotton farming practices. 

How we support nature through our packaging

At Devon Duvets we make a conscious effort to support British businesses to source our packaging, labels, printing etc. and prefer to use companies that are equally as conscious in operating in an environmentally friendly way.

We continue to make changes to the way in which we package our products to ensure it is as environmentally responsible as possible.  We only use recycled and FSC cardboard for our boxes and the small amount of plastic we need to use to pack duvets is biodegradable.  

How we support nature through our waste management

Disposal of any waste materials from our workshops is controlled with the vast majority of it being recycled. For example, our offcuts of cotton are used by another British company to make the lining of rubber gloves and some items are used by a local children's charity for artwork - nothing is wasted. Any scrap wool is composted.
