NOMITE Certification guarantees their suitability for dust mite allergic people
The Euroquilt Siberian Goose Down duvets can be used by people who are allergic to dust mites. They have NOMITE certified cases, which guarantees that the tightness of the weave creates a barrier to the dust mite, preventing it from entering the duvet. The 100% white Siberian goose down is Downafresh certified, which means that the down filling conforms to the strictest hygiene standards (and has been thoroughly sterilised through washing). All compponents also comply with all animal welfare regulations.
100% Siberian white goose down
These superior duvets contain 100% Siberian white high loft goose down. The outer casings are high quality 100% satinised cotton with a 460 thread count which makes them the most superior duvet of all the Euroquilt range.
The duvets are made with a baffled box wall construction. The boxes or pockets come in two sizes with the smaller boxes used for lower tog duvets and the larger pockets used on 9, 10.5 and 13.5tog duvets. This ensures that the right ratio of filling is distributed evenly throughout the duvet to achieve a full loft.
Oeko-Tex standard filling and 100% cotton casing
Both the 100% satinised cotton casing and the 100% Siberian goose down are Oeko-tex Standard ensuring they are free from harmful substances.
Choose the tog that suits your needs – 4.5, 9,10.5 and 13.5tog
The duvets are available in togs to suit your desired level of warmth. 4.5tog is usually used for the warmest months of the summer though some people are also happy with this tog rating all year round. The 9tog is usually suitable for most people for most of the year, being possibly too warm for the very warmest nights and needing an extra blanket for the very coldest nights. The 10.5tog are very popular for cooler houses and the 13.5tog is usually chosen by people who have very cold houses or who are very susceptible to feeling the cold and need a bit of extra warmth.

Euroquilt - Siberian Goose Down
Did you know many people mistakenly believe they are allergic to down and feathers when they are actually reacting to either dust mites or bacteria within a filling?
Our natural handmade duvets from Euroquilt are ideally suited for allergy sufferers, as they are both dust mite and feather proof. The duvets are Oeko-Tex compliant, with Nomite certified cases, which guarantees that the tightness of the weave creates a barrier for dust mites and protection for you.
Euroquilt Siberian Goose Down Duvets
These superior goose down duvets contain 100% Siberian white goose down, perfect for people who prefer a lighter feel. The duvets are encased in top of the range 460 thread count, satinised 100% cotton cambric. This makes them the most superior of all the Euroquilt duvets. They are double stitched and piped. The baffled box construction ensures an even spread of filling through the duvet.
They are also Downafresh certified which ensures the down fillings conform to the strictest hygiene standards (and have been thoroughly sterilised through washing) and comply with all animal welfare regulations.
The box walled duvets come with two different sizes of boxing (or pockets) with the smaller boxes used for lower tog duvets and the larger pockets used on 9 tog and above. This ensures the correct ratio of filling is distributed evenly throughout the duvet to make sure a full loft is achieved.
Day to day care of your duvet requires gentle shaking to re-loft the duvet and to ensure the product is well aired to maintain a dry and comfortable sleep experience. Dry any liquid spills immediately and thoroughly. Please see care Instructions tab for more details.
Euroquilts are made in the UK by a highly skilled team who have more than 27 years experience to ensure top quality.
Daunasan® and Downafresh® are trademarks of the registered Association of the European Bedfeather and Bedding Industries documenting that the filling material complies with the European standard EN 12935 (“feather and down – hygiene and cleanliness requirements“). Companies using these brands have the down and feathers they process tested at a hygiene laboratory and document the origin and processing of the filling material.
Bedding products marked with the Downafresh brand are filled with feathers and down that were previously washed with water and dried at temperatures of at least 100°C. Hence, bedding products which carry the Downafresh label meet the hygienic requirements laid down in the European standard EN 12935.
Feathers and down are a product of nature. They are produced according to strict statutory provisions and originally do not contain any harmful substances. Their natural properties – they weigh little and keep you comfortably warm without burdening you – make for outstanding heat insulation. They are thus the perfect filling material for bedding products.
By means of a documentary traceability system it is established that the filling material was gathered in conformity with current animal welfare legislation.
During the processing only environment-friendly cleaning agents are applied which preserve the natural properties of the feathers and down. At the end of the product life cycle the filling material can easily be recycled.
The producers who use the Downafresh® label have undertaken to have their products regularly tested by an independent testing laboratory to ensure that they meet the requirements for hygiene and cleanliness.
The NOMITE mark indicates that a product is suitable for house-dust-mite-allergy sufferers because down and feather-filled products offer excellent thermal and climatic conditions for humans (rapid warming up when one is sleeping, rapid decrease in humidity when the bedding is aired), they provide a very poor habitat for house dust mites, which rely on high humidity to live.
The tight weave of the down and feather proof fabric acts as a barrier preventing the mites from passing through and offers, thus, additional protection. So that also those who suffer from house dust allergies or asthma can enjoy the natural comfort afforded by down and feather bedding. This has been demonstrated by scientific research.
OEKO-TEX® Standard 100
How can you ensure that the textile product you are buying is free from harmful substances and chemical treatments?
If you have allergies or multiple chemical sensitivity, this may be a question you ask yourself frequently. Thankfully, there are a number of independent certifications that can offer you reassurance.
One of these is the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. This is an independent certification, established in 1992. The aim of this certification is to show that a textile product (from bedding to clothing) poses no risk to your health.
When you buy a product with the OEKO-TEX® label, you can be reassured that it is kind to your skin, free from harmful chemical treatments. It is a vigourous testing process which gives you peace of mind, so you can buy textiles with confidence.
The closer a textile product comes to your skin, the stricter the requirements it must fulfil.
The certification goes above and beyond existing legislation, forbidding chemicals which are known to be harmful to health but not officially banned. All in all, the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a great quality seal to look for when you’re shopping for clothing or bed linen, particularly if you have chemical sensitivity or skin allergies.
OEKO-TEX® certified materials are internationally and scientifically tested. The OEKO-TEX® logo certifies excellent human ecology. Strict testing and controlling parameters assure a constant high quality of the products. Working together with notable testing institutes, a fully integrated quality control system has been developed.
Whilst some finished products are certified, other products are made up of only certified materials. This means that the product itself has not been tested but the components have been tested and certified. Since there is a fee for all certifications, it is usually the products that are supplied and manufactured by smaller companies that have the individual components tested but not the finished product. We have given the specifications on these products as Oeko-tex standard because there are only Oeko-tex certified materials used.
Sometimes we are asked why a particular product does not have a label on it to say that it is Oeko-tex standard. Again it is usually the larger manufacturers who provide labels on their products because the price of producing labels for individual products can be prohibitive for smaller manufacturers – it would also have to be reflected in a higher retail price.
We are always happy to answer questions about the certifications of the products we offer, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you need verification.
Siberian, Hungarian and European products should not be over washed or over cleaned. These are premium down products and as such should be treated with the utmost care to minimise the risk of damage through excessive laundering. Use of protectors on pillows is advised to minimise laundering.
If your washing machine cannot accommodate your duvet / pillow with enough space to ensure that items are rinsed sufficiently, we recommend professional laundering (not dry cleaning).
Washing smaller duvets and pillows:
Machine wash at 40oC on a gentle cycle using a small amount of mild detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner, bleaching agents or optical whiteners. These agents will damage or coat the down clusters and fibres and reduce their insulating and loft properties.
Tumble dry on low to medium heat using two dryer balls or tennis balls. Tumble dry for short periods of time, take out, shake, repeat. Continue until you are sure the item is completely dry. Do not air dry as moisture can be retained deep inside the duvets and pillows which can lead to mustiness.
DO NOT LEAVE DUVET OR PILLOW WET OR DAMP
No ironing, no mangling or hot pressing and no chemical additives.
Pillows are a stock item
