Custom Eiderdown Using Your Choice of Fabric
PLEASE EMAIL BEFORE ORDERING - This page is for information purposes. I will need to consult with you regarding your choice of fabric, size and edging etc. This can take a few emails to ensure you receive exactly what you want. With custom orders, I will collect payment when your eiderdown is ready for posting.
With so many beautiful designer fabrics out there, our website may not be showing a particular colourway, design or pattern which you had in mind to suit your interior design project. But fear not, Dearest Violet Eiderdowns offers a bespoke service for both home owners and interior design companies.
I can make your eiderdown using your own purchased fabric. Customers are responsible for sourcing and purchasing the outer fabrics. Please do not hesitate to contact me on 07398 361542 if you need any advice...I'm always happy to help.
When choosing your materials, be aware that not all fabrics are best suited for eiderdowns. Quilting cottons, medium weight cottons & linens work best (heavier weight fabrics work but will reduce the loft of your eiderdown).
Payment for your eiderdown is made when it is ready for posting, currently 8 weeks from receipt of fabric.
Available in five standard sizes:
Single: 110cm x 160cm (43" x 63") - £250
Small Double: 125cm x 160cm (49" x 63") - £325
Double: 145cm x 160cm (57" x 63") - £360
King: 160cm x 160cm (63" x 63") - £470
Super King: 183cm x 170cm (72" x 67") - £580
Should you require an eiderdown other than in a standard size please ask. Larger eiderdowns can be made.
Frills/pleated edges can be made but will, of course, require more fabric and there is an additional fee of £50 per eiderdown. Some fabrics do not frill easily. If this is the case then I will make a small pleated edging (please see images).
Your handmade English feather & down eiderdown will be made in the traditional way, soft, plump and made to last for generations.

Materials & Care
Materials & Care
Materials - My eiderdowns are made using a a natural eco-friendly sustainable feather & down mix, compliant with standard BS EN 12935. There are two layers of fabric, the top decorative layer and the very important cotton cambric layer that holds the feather & down in place.
Each eiderdown is handmade and filled by me in my Devon studio. I use the best quality fabrics, feather & down and strong threads to produce a timeless eiderdown that will stay warm, plump and last for generations.
Caring for your eiderdown - On delivery, to restore your eiderdowns loft, it will need a little "plumping", much like you would do with a feather pillow.
Over time, you may find that the feather & down migrate to the bottom of the eiderdown so I recommend that you rotate your eiderdown regularly to allow the feathers & down to evenly distribute. Again a little plumping from time to time will help with this.
Professional dry cleaning only.
Summer weight eiderdowns - Summer weight eiderdowns are available in all of our beautiful fabrics. Fewer feathers and square/rectangular pockets are used to create a lighter, cooler eiderdown whilst retaining the look of traditional English bedding. Please email me if you would like this option after purchase.
I do my best to represent my eiderdowns as accurately as possible but I appreciate that purchasing online can be difficult. If you need a fabric swatch to check the colour/fabric, please do contact me and I'll pop them in the post.
