All about pillows and duvets

Why top athletes attach great importance to sleep

4 Apr

If you love sport and train a lot, then you know that the more intensively you train, the more sleep you need. Sleep doesn’t just help us to regenerate physically, it also has a decisive influence on our mental fitness. That’s because your cerebral cortex, which controls important basic mental functions like focus, speed of action, decision-making and your ability to concentrate, is active during sleep. If you get too little sleep, you notice the effects immediately – your basic functions are impaired, your performance reduced. Poor sleep quality or a lack of sleep increases your risk of illness and injuries, which also take longer to heal.

But getting enough sleep is just one part of the puzzle. You also need to sleep well. A great way to support the quality of your sleep is with a Climaactive down duvet  which uses active climate management and the ingenious Outlast concept to regulate climate throughout the night and create the perfect conditions for a deep and restful night’s sleep.

Do you spend your nights as comfortably as your smartphone?

14 Feb

Everyone knows you need to charge your smart phone. It provides a very useful service every day, and so you take good care of it and give it what it needs. You charge it, you update it regularly and make sure it’s in top working order. But now let’s take a look at its owner. Do you take such good care of yourself? You need to charge your batteries, too…..but do you? Restful and relaxing nights are our equivalent of smart phone updates – they update all your systems. Your brain processes everything that has happened during the day and stores or deletes the information so that you’re ready for all the new information and knowledge that the new day will bring. As a small gesture of appreciation for all the work your brain does, why don’t you give it a really comfortable place to lie? A perfect pillow so it can relax completely. Here is some inspiration to get you started.

Seamless warmth with a cassette duvet

6 Dec

What distinguishes a cassette duvet and makes it especially warm? It’s the complex duvet design with sewn-in bridging bands to eliminate cold zones because the down filling inside the squares is evenly distributed right to the edges of the duvet. With a caros duvet, where the squares are simply quilted, cold zones can arise along the seams. That’s why I love my cassette duvet, especially in the wintertime – seamless, cosy, wonderful warmth.

Holidays? Not without my pillow! My tip for sleeping well in a strange bed

27 Sep

Some things just have to come along with me when I go on holiday and my pillow is one of them. It helps me sleep in strange beds, both with falling asleep and sleeping through. It’s a little piece of home that I take with me and it’s a lovely feeling. My head, neck and shoulders are all comfortably cushioned and it makes it easier to relax. Another advantage of my pillow is that it’s a Climacontrol neck support pillow. As the name suggests, the pillow has active climate technology, which means the pillow regulates the temperature throughout the whole night. It is a very pleasant feeling, especially as I like to spend my holidays in places where it’s nice and warm. But the pillow is perfect at home too, and in the wintertime, because no matter how warm or cold it is, the pillow’s temperature is simply ideal.

Object of study: pillows – why we invest so much?

19 Jul

Any company wishing to become a responsible manufacturer of bedding needs to take research into human sleeping patterns seriously. Gerd Billerbeck recognised this fact more than 50 years ago and decided to create the “Sleep and Health” Foundation to serve just this purpose. Mattresses and pillows bear the brunt of our sleeping activities and play a central role in deciding whether we can enjoy a relaxing night’s sleep or not. For these reasons, we invest a lot time, energy and expertise into developing new pillows and have developed a wide range of products from the classic type with down and feathers to millet pillows right through to neck support pillows with active climate technology. The specially designed pillow shapes provide ergonomic support for your neck and head and can therefore help to prevent the build-up of stress and tension in the neck and shoulder area. To achieve this, our customers need to be able to select the perfect pillow for their needs in terms of depth, size and level of support. If you’re powerfully built, you’ll need a deeper, firmer pillow while those with a more petite frame should select a lower, softer version.

Shoulder width plays a decisive role in determining pillow depth. If the pillow is too deep, both the head and cervical spine will be pushed upwards. Conversely a pillow that is too low provides no support and allows them to sink downwards. The perfect pillow allows the spine to retain its natural position however you sleep, a position similar to when you are standing.
