Though no one knows what city or town this luxury bed linen came from, the duvet probably originated in rural areas of Europe. Although the word is French, many think it originated with the Norse. "Dunn", which, in Norse, means "down", as in from birds, is thought to have been very subtly changed by the many different dialects until it eventually became "duvet". Australians usually call the duvet a "doona", which is actually an IKEA product back in the 60's. Before then, Australians generally called it a continental quilt. As with Americans, Australians tend to clump all luxury bed linens, be they quilts, duvets, or comforters in to a single term, although they are very different.
These are the most common and popular type of mattresses. Their support structure is made up of coils, and their shape is retained with the help of a border wire. The perimeter of each coil is connected to a wire that borders the mattress, and special springs are used at the edges to give a firm support. The upper layer is separated by a tough padding or insulator, or a layer of wire netted together that prevents it from settling into the springs. The number of coils that may be present in these mattresses varies from 300-800, and largely depends on their size. The thickness of the coil wire and the number of coils used are inversely proportional. However, more the number of coils, more comfortable will the mattress be. There are different types of coils that can be used, and the technique used to connect the coils greatly affects the shape, comfort, and durability of the mattress.
Down. This is the plumage that grows underneath a duck or a goose's outer feathers. It is very fluffy and soft. It protects the birds from the cold harsh weather in winter. Goose down is more expensive than duck down because goose is rarer, unlike duck which are readily available in different parts of Asia.
