Duvets should be washed at least every two years. As the body gives off a lot of heat and sweat over the head, pillows should be washed a little more often, preferably once a year.
It all started with a present given to our daughter - a sleeping bag with a polyester filling!
Damp, sticky, stuffy, sometimes too hot and then too cold. This is what our first child, Carmen, must have experienced as she spent 5 years ago days and nights after she was born in a sleeping bag with polyester filling. It was a gift from relatives who clearly meant well.
However, I couldn’t stop thinking about whether she was really comfortable in it.
Would you sleep in polyester bedding?
I certainly wouldn’t and I couldn’t imagine that babies would feel comfortable spending more than 5,000 hours a year in a sleeping bag like this.
After doing some research, however, I soon realized that, when it came to babies’ sleeping bags, there wasn’t much choice available to buy in terms of products made entirely from natural materials.
THE SOLUTION simply didn’t exist, which is why I saw it as my job and a challenge to find one.
This was the beginning of Zizzz.

In recent decades, the standard length of duvets offered in Swiss retail stores has settled at 210 cm, while the majority of duvets in Germany is 200 cm long. On the Internet, a variety of sizes is on offer, if only because each country has developed their own traditional standard sizes for bedding. Zizzz has recently added a size range for adults with many ideal duvet sizes so you can find the perfect fit for every person in your family.
While down is soft and elastic, it comes at the high price of the suffering of the animals when the feathers are plucked. Wool is a real option for duvets and pillows. The soft material produced from sheep’s coat is 100% natural, it is breathable and readily absorbs moisture.
