Wow! Such a unique and valuable material!
Camel down is the inner layer of hair on the Bactrian Camel. It’s literally hand-gather by herdsman during the camel’s malting season in Spring. This process is both sustainable and stress free for the animal.
The duvet shells are a very special weave of 50% silk and 50% fine cotton jacquard fabric further enhancing the look and performance- there really is no other duvet like this! The camel down duvet drapes over your body like silk but feels ‘light’ in weight.
The Bactrian, or two-humped camel, is native to the Gobi Desert. They’re exposed to temperatures averaging as low as -40°C in winter and very high in summer. During these extremes, the camel down is responsible for protecting and regulating the animal's temperature. These thermal properties are transferred to your duvet when filled with the camel's down. Excess moisture is drawn or ‘wicked’ away to keep you cozy and dry. This action works throughout the year regardless of season.
Camel down is a superior natural material being inherently Hypoallergenic and Antibacterial, meaning it does not support an environment for allergens like dust-mites or bacteria. The duvet will also resist body odor, mold and mildew. This is great news for asthmatics.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SPECIAL DUVET
The most effective way to care for your duvet is to use a duvet cover. The duvet cover is much easier to clean than your duvet. Ideally, hang your duvet outside for a few hours twice a year allowing the UV light and gentle breeze to freshen it up.
If the duvet becomes badly soiled, we recommend only using a reputable Dry Cleaner that is experienced in handling delicate and precious garments like high-end duvets and bridal gowns. They should ONLY be using safe, non-toxic and biodegradable cleaning solutions that are 'perc free'.
Séviere Duvets come with a 5-year defect Warranty against faulty manufacturing. A duvet cover MUST be used in this warranty period.
As we are dealing with natural products, it is not possible to provide a warranty for issues such as: shrinkage, pilling of fabric, stains/discoloring, soiling, burns, any odors from other fabrics and raw materials, damage due to abuse or moving, placed in washing machines or tumble dryers. Simply care for your duvet as per label instructions and your investment will adore you for many, many years.
A small amount of fill fiber ‘drilling’ through the fabric shell or stitching is considered normal and not a warranty issue.
**Warranty voided if any of the labels have been removed.
Séviere Designs will stand by our creations with a 30-day money back Guarantee. If the product is not as physically described herein, the UNUSED duvet and cotton bag can be returned and money will be refunded minus all shipping costs. For health reasons, the duvet must NOT have been used.
