die-zudecke-logoI can’t believe what I have just found. Whilst rummaging through my files, not only did I find a lot of things relating to my time working for the John Lewis Partnership and De Gruchy’s in Jersey, but a certificate presented to me to a Die Zudecke / Surrey Down Company Seminar in Germany.

Surrey Down is part of the German company Richard Behr (UK) Ltd and the premium brand is Die Zudecke. All the natural duvets and pillows are manufactured in Germany. They are renowned for the Canadian White Snow Goose Down duvet and pillows.

Die-Zudecke-Training-350On 21st – 23rd April 1996 Stephen Vokins successfully took part in a special seminar on duvets, comforters and pillows covering the subjects of raw materials, purification, manufacturing and care.

This is another great reason to trust Big Brand Beds when it comes to buying Die Zudecke natural duvets. Not only do we offer first class service, speedy delivery, 10 year guarantee and great prices, but we have the expert knowledge to back it up.

The factory is located outside Hamburg in Kaltenkirchen. Even though it’s nearly 17 years ago I do remember plenty about the trip. We combined it with a trip to Biedlack, a company that made wonderful acrylic blankets.

The visit to the Die Zudecke factory was the main part of the visit. On one occasion we were told to close our eyes and present our hands. We then had to guess which hand they had placed the goose down in. The down was so light that it was only when my hand warmed up did I realise which hand had a fluffy pile of goose down in it.

Well 17 years on and [email protected] and Big Brand Beds are still selling Die Zudecke duvets and pillows and the full range is available online. And I still use one of their duvets!
