Duvets are a great way to decorate your bedroom and express your personality. That’s why I’m about to buy this best-selling duvet on Redbubble. (Click the link to see the duvet, but not if your boss or small children are behind you, or if you’re super conservative. This Redbubble duvet cover is PG-13.)
If you’re looking for some pros and cons about Redbubble’s duvet covers, you’ve definitely come to the right place!
I’m addicted I’m very fond of these duvets but there are a few things I think you should know before you buy one. So keep reading!
1. My Qualifications to Write This Review
I actually bought three duvets from Redbubble in the past two years, and I have a strong feeling that I’ll be ordering more real soon. So I thought I’d write a quick review for those of you who are wondering what they’re really like.
Plus, I really love duvet covers because I really love napping.
Update (March 3, 2019)
I actually bought TWO MORE duvets after writing this review, and I love them! Doing research for me usually equals me finding things that I have to splurge on.
2. Quality of Materials
I have to say that the duvets and its zippers are made from durable and high-quality materials. I’m very impressed with how comfortable they are too.
The duvet is sturdy but soft, and they also have a concealed zipper opening at the foot. This means your comforter will actually stay completely inside your duvet shell while you’re sleeping. Bonus! Better than the duvets with the unsecured openings.
For you materials experts out there… The top part of the duvet, where the print is, is made of brushed polyester. The white, underside part is made of soft cotton and polyester.
Oh! And an unexpected bonus what that the duvets came with a plastic case with a zipper. It’s nice for storing your duvets!
3. Warning: No Duvet Insert
Definition: A duvet is a case that covers a comforter. This is similar to the way a pillowcase covers a pillow. The purpose of a duvet is not only decorative but to keep your comforter clean.
I just wanted to let you know that Redbubble comforters don’t exist (not that I know of, anyway), but duvets do.
What I mean is that the Duvets don’t actually come with the duvet insert (aka comforter). But that’s fine because I bought a really nice comforter on Amazon for super cheap and I just change the duvets according to my mood or season.
Also, Redbubble doesn’t ship pillowcases with duvets. However, it’s easy just to find solid colored pillowcases on Amazon that match the artwork on the duvet (my absolute favorite are these ones from Amazon).
4. Quality of Print
The print quality of the duvets I bought was excellent.
I have to admit that I wasn’t 100% satisfied with one of the duvet’s print quality (more like 90% satisfied). This wasn’t due to Redbubble’s printing process but because the artist had increased the image size of their design a tad too much, which made it a bit blurry*.
I know I could have told Redbubble about this tiny issue and they would have given me another duvet (they’re really awesome about that), but I decided the duvet was good enough to keep.
Now, you might be on the fence when deciding to buy a duvet because you’re scared there will be a blurry or pixelated image print on it (although Redbubble returns are easy as pie).
It’s less risky to buy duvets with multiple, smaller images, patterns, or something that seems illustrated digitally (like this crazy cat lady duvet). Chances are the images haven’t been enlarged at all and the print will be sharp.
* I emailed the artist about the blurry image and they fixed the issue right away.
5. Variety: What You Can Expect
Variety is the spice of life and that’s why I keep going to Redbubble because you never know what you’re going to find!
I love Rebubble or any site where artists can upload their own work and put it on merchandise. And I find Redbubble artists are so talented. I buy a lot of my Christmas presents from Redbubble because it’s a great source for anything fan-related or any kind of niche theme that you’re looking for.
If you’re a fan of a TV Show, Movie, Singer, Actor, or Stranger Things (I’m a fan), you definitely want to check out the different designs that artists come up with.
6. Final Verdict
If you’re looking for high-quality, artistic duvet covers that are easily washable (I wash them using the delicate cycle then hung it to dry. No problems yet!), I definitely recommend Redbubble.
I also recommend them because there are so many great artists, from around the world, uploading their artwork to the site every day
The best part?
Redbubble will deliver these unique duvet covers to you, no matter where you are in the world. Be it the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, or wherever.
