HOW SHOULD YOU INTERPRET THE PRICE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DIFFERENT DOWN BLANKETS?

HOW SHOULD YOU INTERPRET THE PRICE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DIFFERENT DOWN BLANKETS?

The costs of a down blanket can vary considerably, depending on the material, quality, size and design. Prices range from less than 50 euro to more than 2,000 euro.

To be honest, this should not surprise you, because you come across such price differences in all sorts of things that you purchase regularly.

When there is a justification for a price difference between 2 items, between 2 down blankets, it is up to you to choose how much you are willing to spend on your sleeping comfort. We cannot determine your budget. We can, however, guarantee a number of precise and specific matters:

  1. You get the very best quality and finish for the price you pay with us
  2. After your purchase, we’ll adjust the filling level for you if desired. Therefore you are 100% sure that you NEVER buy a down blanket from us that’s too warm or too cool.
  3. You receive a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on your down filling.
  4. Our down comes from geese that live in cold areas such as Canada, Hungary and Scandinavia. They are bred especially for the down and run freely outside. In the spring, they are "stripped", by combing fingers through the fur until the down flakes whirl out. For the geese this feels like a solid brushing. Yes, just like you, Fja-Oeyen cares about animal welfare!
  5. You’ll sleep like a king and your Fja-Oeyen down blanket will last you a lifetime.
  6. We answer every question you have in a clear and comprehensible way. This allows you to make a well-informed choice.
  7. You will enjoy the quality of your FJA-Oeyen down blanket long after you have forgotten it’s purchase price.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CASSETTES AND CHANNELS

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CASSETTES AND CHANNELS

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.

 

Are you still not completely sure about which type of duvet would work best for you? Don’t hesitate to stop by in one of our stores in Antwerp or Mol!
