We receive so many questions about pillow inserts and the best duvet insert for our popular block print pillows and duvet covers that we thought we’d do a round-up of our most frequently recommended inserts. These recommendations will be a perfect fit for your handcrafted Indian textiles. Find the best inserts for throw pillows and duvet cover inserts in this post.

Whether you’re looking for pillow inserts or a duvet insert made from natural materials, budget options, or inserts that won’t cause your allergies to flare up, there are many choices available to fit both your needs and your linens.

The best pillow inserts to go with Saffron Marigold block print pillows

Our throw pillows measure a standard 18″ square and our Euro shams measure a generous 26″ square. As such, all of the options below measure 18″ and 26″ to fit our pillow covers perfectly. However, if you want your pillows to look filled to the max, then you’ll want to choose an insert that’s 1-2 inches smaller for an extra-plush pouf. Here are a few great options to go with our pillow covers and cushion covers:

The best duvet cover inserts for your cotton duvet cover

There are just so many factors to consider when shopping for a new duvet: fill number, shell materials, fill material. The list goes on and on! If you live in a colder climate, you’ll naturally want a warmer duvet. However, if you tend to overheat at night, you’ll want something that has a fill power of 400-600 (or even less) for use throughout the year. If you want your bedding to appear ultra-puffy, buy a duvet that’s just slightly larger than the cover itself for a stuffed-and-fluffed look.


Three Season Down Duvet Insert

Made with box-stitched, 600-fill pure down, this duvet is great for year-round use or for anyone who tends to get hot while sleeping. These offerings from Coyuchi (a company that prizes sustainability and ethical practices) are slightly oversized and will provide that puffed-fluffed look to your bedding.

The Fine Bedding Company

Spundown Duvet Insert

If you suffer from allergies, then you’ll want a hypoallergenic duvet like this one. It even fits inside your home washing machine for easy laundering! (Wash on the highest water setting allowable in order to kill dust mites.)
