Please note: This is a natural product, which will therefore always have a slight odour. This can be reduced by airing the product out for at least 48 hours prior to use. New products will have a stronger odour due to it being inside packaging for a period of time, but will gradually decrease over a few days.

All our naturally filled duvets and pillows are now housed in Nomite marked casing: a first for the UK market. The tight weave of the cover fabric ensures no down or feathers can escape, whilst it provides an effective barrier against dust mites. This means that these ranges are suitable for house-dust-mite-allergy and asthma sufferers. Supported by scientific research, our market leading casing gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy the multiple benefits of natural fillings.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pillows Fantastic. Bought 2 online and then purchased 2 more in store. Not as bad a smell as suggested from other reviewers 25 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable and supportive I tried and tested many different pillows before settling on this one. I chose this because it is nice and soft but still supports my head, however I would still recommend using this on top of a harder pillow otherwise it will feel a bit flat. As other reviews have mentioned there is a slight smell to the pillow but it is hardly noticeable once you have a pillowcase on; it certainly hasn't been an issue for me. I bought this about a month ago and so far it has lasted well, though does seem a little "deflated" compared to when I bought it - I think this is probably unavoidable with most pillows though. The price is obviously at the higher end of the market but as long as it continues to do the job I think it is worth it. Overall very happy with the purchase. 21 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very superior Bought this pillow for my disabled wife, who is confined to bed 24/7, so the pillow is in constant use. It is very resilient and always recovers when turned, but at the same time it's soft and forgiving to the touch. When only the best will do, as in this case, it's a must have and I only wish I had bought it sooner. Maybe I will spoil myself and get one for me as well. 20 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great nights sleep This pillow is wonderful. It is supportive whilst at the same time so comfortable. Excellent purchase!! 13 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely comfortable pillow. We had bought one a few months ago for my husband, and promised ourselves one for me! Well worth the wait! 13 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely pillow Excellent pillow, firm and supportive without being too hard. Have slept well since I bought it! 30 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect pillow I have been looking for a, mainly, down filled pillow. Having found this one I am delihgted. 29 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sadly, not recommended It really goes against the grain for me to write a negative review of a product, so much so that I have hesitated for months before sharing my experience. It is my hope, however, that my comments might just help somebody else who, like me is looking to invest in a good pillow and is considering this product. I have now had the Luxury Hungarian Goose Down Pillow (soft/medium) for four months so I believe that I can review it based on longer-term use rather than my initial impression. Had I reviewed it after a few days, this review would have been entirely different! I was exhaustive in my research on this pillow and was convinced that it was everything I wanted in terms of composition, softness, and quality. I read every single review and I visited the store several times to try the pillow for myself. I was completely won over by the airy, cloudlike softness and I believed it was worth paying more for a pillow that would give me a peaceful, comfortable night's sleep. I rate this pillow highly on initial feel. That is to say, when you get it home, plump it up a little and first lay your head on it, it is beautiful. You are enveloped in billowing softness and luxury. I rate this pillow very low on how it perform over time. After around one month, the pillow feels somewhat flatter, after two months, flatter still and now, at four months since purchase it simply feels like it has reached the end of its luxury life. It is possible to gain back a little of the softness by constantly plumping the pillow up (several times during the night) but this just isn't something I expected when I first felt the lovely, plump pillow in the store. The worst consequence of using this pillow and what prompts me to finally write this review, is the constant neck pain that I believe has resulted from longer term use. I have never suffered prior to this but within just one week I began to experience serious neck pain. Unfortunate coincidence or not, this is not a pillow I can recommend. 26 September 2015
