Cotton duvetts have long been popular with the young and trendy, but recently they’ve become more popular with older consumers.
The popular cotton duves, which are made from cotton cloth, have a more soft feel than most duveted covers and are designed to be worn by men as well as women.
“Cotton duvettes have a softer feel than the typical duvet covering, which tends to be more rigid and flimsy,” said Heather Hahn, co-owner of the boutique Cotton Duvet Company in the West Village.
“They’re very versatile, and they’re a great way to use up a bit of space.”
Hahn said she likes the cotton duvets to be used in different situations, but added she’s particularly excited about the idea of making a cotton duvenette cover for her daughter, who recently underwent hip surgery.
“It’s such a simple concept, so it’s very appealing,” she said.
“I just thought that I wanted to do something really, really clever and interesting with it, so I was excited to make it.”
The new cotton duvestes are available in two sizes.
For women, they come in a range of sizes from the standard 8.5-10.5 inches and for men, the standard 18.5.
“These are a great option for older adults,” said Hahn.
“If you want something more formal, then you’re going to have to get a larger cover.”
To purchase a cotton duplex duvet for the younger population, Hahn says the brand offers a discount.
“The brand is doing great,” she added.
“But the discount is good, too, because you’re getting a really good deal on a duvet that’s going to last a long time.”
Hens said that a variety of different styles are available, including two-layer duvet covers, three-layer duplex covers and three-piece duvet duvet liners.
