You know the feeling, that you can’t seem to find a comfortable position at night because your pillow just isn’t comfortable. Pillows come in all sizes and shapes, and there is a large variety of them. Everyone has different preferences in what is comfortable for them. And a comfortable pillow is a big part of a qualitative night’s sleep.


Fja-Oeyen pillows are completely made by hand, and that makes them completely customizable, from their shape to their filling! We make pillows filled with two different materials: feathers and down. A pillow that’s filled with feathers will be sturdy and therefore offer more support to the head and neck. That’s because of the dense composition of feathers. A pillow filled with down will be a lot softer and collapsable as down is lighter and far less dense than feathers as it needs air to be plump and fluffy.


There is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to pillows, and what’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander in this case.

Fja-Oeyen has been making different types of duvets in different sizes for over 60 years, and our classics never disappoint! Are you a fan of our cassette system or our channel system? Not exactly sure what the difference is? Fear not, we’d love to dive into the specifics!


The differences between the two systems become apparent during daily maintenance and washing. 


A duvet can last a lifetime if it’s properly taken care of. One of the most important things in duvet maintenance is air. Down particles have the smallest ramifications that hold onto air. This creates a barrier that insulates and traps your body temperature and keeps you warm at night. That’s why it’s important to shake your duvet daily, so the down particles can absorb air.

This is only possible with a channel duvet, as in a cassette duvet the down particles are trapped in fields. A channel duvet can absorb 2 to 3 times more air! 


If you know you won’t be shaking your duvet daily, then a cassette duvet might be just right for you!


Shaking your duvet also allows the dirty down particles to slide down, making room for the clean ones at the top of the duvet. This of course is only possible with a channel duvet. Because the down particles are trapped in fields in a cassette duvet, they always come into contact with the same body parts which makes them dirty faster.


When a duvet is professionally washed, the down and cover are taken apart and washed separately before everything is put back together when it’s clean. The cover can be reused as only a small amount of stitching needs to be taken out. This is different with the cover of a cassette duvet, which has a lot more stitching resulting in the cover being destroyed when it gets washed.
