Why We Love Down Products

Why We Love Down Products

Learn why we love down products and how they can benefit your sleep.


Sleeping with down products, like down duvets and pillows, offers a luxurious and cozy experience that we love at olive & elle.


We source our down products exclusively from St. Genève, who are the premier producer of down products in Canada. Their duvets and pillows are guaranteed hypoallergenic and Downmark certified. Here are some benefits to including down products in your sleep routine:

  1. Unmatched Comfort: Down products are incredibly soft and plush. They cradle your body, providing a cloud-like feeling that makes falling asleep a breeze.

  2. Temperature Regulation: Down has natural insulation properties. It keeps you warm in the winter by trapping heat, but it's also breathable, preventing you from overheating in the summer. It's like having a personal thermostat for your bed. Have a look at St. Genève's Söving Duvet for the ultimate in temperature regulation!

  3. Long-Lasting Durability: High-quality down products are built to last. They maintain their loft (fluffiness) over time, so you won't need to replace them as often as synthetic alternatives. St. Genève guarantees their down duvets for twenty years, though with proper care, you can get many more years out of them.

  4. Hypoallergenic Options: All of St. Genève's down products are Zurguard certified hypoallergenic. This is great news for allergy sufferers who still want to enjoy the luxury of down.

  5. Lightweight and Packable: Down is incredibly lightweight, making it easy to move and adjust your bedding. It's also highly compressible, ideal for those who like to take their favourite pillow or comforter when traveling.

  6. Natural and Sustainable: Down is a natural material, typically sourced from ducks or geese. Down used by St. Genève in the production of their duvets and pillow is responsibly harvested, making it an eco-friendly choice compared to synthetic materials that can harm the environment.

  7. No Noisy Crinkling: Unlike some synthetic fillings that can be noisy when you move, down products are virtually silent, allowing for a quiet, uninterrupted night's sleep.

  8. Luxurious Appearance: Down products often have a high-end, elegant appearance that can elevate the aesthetics of your bedroom, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

  9. Easy Care: Most down products are easy to care for - in fact, most can even be machine washed! Regular fluffing and occasional airing can help maintain their loft and freshness.

  10. Personalized Support: Down pillows can be found in various firmness levels, allowing you to choose one that suits your sleeping style—whether you prefer a softer, flatter pillow or one with more support.

Sleeping with down products provides unparalleled comfort, temperature control, and durability. All of St. Genève's down duvets, pillows, and mattress toppers are hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, and add a touch of luxury to your bedroom. Plus, with options tailored to individual preferences, you can find the perfect down product to enhance your sleep quality and overall well-being.
