Husband and wife team Dick and Pauline Beijen bought their flocks of sheep during the summer of 2008 as the first step into their idea of creating high quality, natural British wool duvets; the challenge being to develop a high quality duvet that draped and behaved as a duvet should. The original wool duvet.
After more than a year of development work, the latter part of which was filmed by Channel 4 with Monty Don in his series 'My Dream Farm', Devon Duvets was born.
The concept of handcrafting British wool duvets and wool pillows in England was largely unthought of at that time and we are delighted that there is now a re-discovery of British wool that helps to support British farms.
There has been a huge demand for Devon Duvets’ high quality handcrafted wool duvets, wool mattresss toppers and wool pillows and has been appreciated by all. Devon Duvets continues to grow with Dick and Pauline remaining intimately involved in every step of the process, Pauline is the one who will always find time to speak with you and develops the website and new products. Dick runs the workshops, production and the whole concept of things - a real family run business! Innovations include the development of the unique patent pending folding pillow and luxurious wool mattress toppers that have added to the total Devon Duvets sleeping experience; enjoyed by many.
Our Classic and Organic Collections, made from Platinum Grade British Wool and 100% Cotton continue to be the most desired wool bedding within the UK with a national retail distribution through John Lewis, Selfridges, Harrods and many other quality stores.
The conscious use of natural materials that are renewable, responsible and environmentally friendly supports farming communities and protects the environment; helping to secure it for future generations.
The growth of Devon Duvets has allowed us to employ a growing number of employees to keep up with demand and maintain a real English handcrafted natural product.
Our staff are proud of their craftsmanship and this is evident in each uniquely handcrafted product made by Devon Duvets.
We hope that we prove that in England we can create and produce high quality products which are sought after by many.
