Feathers and down have to be particularly well encased and there are a range of requirements the casing or ‘ticking’ must fulfill. Most importantly, it has to ensure feather and down proof webbing, while at the same time allow for air permeability.100% cotton has proven to be the most suitable material for ticking as its fine threads are perfectly able to transport a sleeper’s moisture and then release it to the air.


Quilting patterns

Although most duvets today are created with a set of stitching and baffled-box patterns, other designs and compositions can be requested. Examples of differentiated sewing include point-quilted, diamond-quilted and chamber-quilted duvets. One detail that never changes is the product’s guaranteed best quality to meet highest customer demands.



Different cotton weaving techniques, such as twill (ticking), plain weave (percale) and satin weave (satin), have been developed to highlight noteworthy characteristics. For example, twill ticking is especially suitable for pillows as it enables high thread densities with excellent stability. The typical features of percale are its fine threads and low weight used for high-quality duvets that are filled with either pure down or feathery down. Alternatively, down-proof satin is suitable for customers, who favour the fabric’s striking glossy finish.
