All of the white 100% batiste makò cotton covers (including the soft and extra soft versions) hold the filling and prevent it from getting out thanks to the particularly dense, compact weave. They also prevent dust and allergens from getting into the filling, while remaining light, soft and breathable.
The products are manufactured using two different types of structures:
Quilted squares, each of which is completely sealed to guarantee even distribution of the filling.
A box-based structure, with spacer ribbons in the sewn squares that allow more effective filling and prevent cold areas from forming between the seams.
Goose down has a three-dimensional form, with numerous filaments known as “barbules” branching out in all directions from a small central core. The filaments are extremely springy and they create millions of tiny pockets of air which in turn trap more air and provide a form of thermal insulation that maintains a constant body temperature. As well as providing thermal insulation, goose down is also hygroscopic, which means that it can absorb moisture from the body.
Silk is a renewable raw material with limited impact on the environment. For this reason we can define our silk as “organic”. The silkworm feeds itself with mulberry tree leaves which do not require pesticides to grow. Mulberry tree farming respects the environment as it doesn’t foresee intensive growing or large quantities of water. The harvesting of leaves is still low-impact and the cocoon growth is left to nature.
Bamboo fibers are obtained from a specific bamboo plant, harvested in non-polluted mountainous areas. It is a 100% biodegradable fiber which doesn’t contain chemical agents, can be recycled and respectful of our environment. This fiber allows for excellent transpiration, it is resistant and soft. Bamboo fibers have an important antibacterial and deodorant effect, they are healthy and do not cause allergies.
Is a hi-tech filling system, made up of recycled siliconized hollow polyester with a constant thickness of the highest quality. The exclusive production process aggregates the fibers into a spiral forming spherical nuclei in differentiated diameter. The natural elasticity of these fibers and the curly structure confer an extraordinary constant elasticity and resilience even after thousands of solicitations. The air present inside the nuclei and in the interspaces in-between the soft spheres of fiber add comfort and softness to the precious actions of thermoregulation and breathability.
This is a scientific way of establishing the quality of a down product that is measured in cubic inches per ounce (CUIN), thus giving the ratio between the weight and the volume of filling. The greater the filling power in CUIN, the better the quality will be, meaning that the down product will be more voluminous, fluffier and therefore softer and lighter.
The best down products are the lightest ones: larger individual plumules take up more space so fewer are required to fill the products, making them lighter. Down can provide the same amount of warmth as other materials at a much lighter weight. The best down provides the greatest thermal insulation at the lowest weight.
During the finishing process, the fabrics are given this targeted, silver-based antibacterial treatment, which has an antimicrobial, anti-allergy and anti-odour effect on cotton. The treatment effectively prevents uncontrolled bacterial growth on the surface of fabrics.
The level of warmth is not an official measurement or a clearly defined, recognized international standard. It is not a very scientific system but it is the most practical way to describe the capacity of a duvet to hold heat. It gives a warmth rating based on measurements of the insulation properties of material using three simple levels of warmth: light, medium and high. Factors such as body weight, room temperature, age, gender and personal sensations have always influenced decisions about which product is the “right choice”.
A specific treatment that helps maintain body temperature at a constant 37°C. It is applied to cotton fabric in the finishing phase. It is chained to the single fibres that make up the fabric: in this way molecular chains are created that favour the release of humidity towards the outside from both our skin and fabric. Regulating the correct amount of humidity on our skin ensures a feeling of freshness and comfort at all times and eliminates the discomfort created by excess heat, humidity or cold.
This system features breathable fibres with three important properties: ergonomics, because they adapt to the human body on a minute scale; flexibility, because they quickly and naturally revert to their original form after they have been squashed or pushed out of shape; and breathability, because the air passes through the very structure of the fibres.
This viscoelastic system has an amazing ability to adapt to the shape of the head and neck, gradually accommodating the weight of the head and accompanying every movement without compressing tissues.
