  1. This Christmas, Give Yourself the Gift of a Little “Me Time”

    This Christmas, Give Yourself the Gift of a Little “Me Time”

    This past year has a been a particularly challenging one for all of us. That’s why this Christmas you deserve the gift of a little “me time”. It’s important for your mental health and wellbeing that you take time out of your busy schedule to relax and unwind, and that’s why we’ve put together a few tips on the best ways to de-stress this winter.

    With social distancing still very much in effect, we’ve decided on a few of our favourite relaxing pastimes that you can do from the comforts of your own home.

     

    • Make time for that book you’ve been meaning to read. We all love to escape to another world and reading is the perfect way to do just this! We normally all have a book or two that we’ve been meaning to read and just haven’t had the time – so try and make the time! Find a nice cosy corner and tuck yourself away with a good book.
    • Watch your favourite film. With Christmas fast approaching, perhaps it’ll be your festive favourite film that you choose? Grab a mug of hot chocolate and snuggle up on the sofa while you enjoy a classic!
    • Treat yourself to a nice hot bubble bath. Go all out! Get the bath bombs, the scented candles, bubbles for the bath…and maybe even some bubbles for a glass to sip while you’re relaxing!
    • Cosy up in a snuggly duvet! Wrapping up warm when it’s cold out is one of the best feelings in the world. Our duvets are 100% natural, 100% sustainable and 100% individually handcrafted in Devon… giving you the best snuggle factor you could wish for.

  2. The Story of Devon Duvets is back on TV

    The Story of Devon Duvets is back on TV

    We’re delighted that the programme telling the story of Devon Duvets is back on TV and being aired several times over the coming days! It all began in 2010, when Dick and Pauline Beijen left their busy international careers behind and bought a smallholding on Dartmoor. Keen to live a more sustainable, self-supporting lifestyle, they were soon crafting natural products to sell, and were discussing the possibility of making wool filled duvets with other local farmers.

    It was at this point that they were discovered by the hugely popular TV presenter, Monty Don, who asked the couple if they would feature in the first episode of his new series ‘My Dream Farm’. Monty Don was so excited by Dick and Pauline’s idea to make wool filled duvets that he introduced them to the buyers in the bedding department of John Lewis and it wasn’t long before the idea became a reality and the seamstresses in our Devon-based workshops were working hard to create, first, our 100% British wool duvets and then our mattress toppers and pillows.

    Many of our original customers saw the programme back in 2010 and were inspired to buy their first wool duvet. Both then and now, many of our customers say that they want to support a British business that is, in turn, supporting British farmers, by only using certified 100% British wool in their products.

    Since then, the series has been aired in the USA and Canada – and has now been shown once again on Together TV in the UK. The episode featuring Dick and Pauline was aired yesterday, 2nd November at 4pm and then again at 9pm, and was simultaneously broadcast on Together TV, with previews on their YouTube and Facebook channels.

    If you missed it, you can catch it on Together TV on Sunday 8th or Saturday 14th November at 12pm or at 6pm.

    Together TV can be found on Freeview (Channel 87) as well as on Sky (Channel 170), Virgin Media (Channel 269) and Freesat (Channel 164).
