Product Pick Of The Week: The Home Duvet That Supports The Homeless
The Cardboard Box print "Home Duvet" cover by Peggy van Neer is a quirky duvet cover that features a photographic print of a cardboard box.
This high quality duvet cover features a photographic print of a cardboard box. This produces an extremely sharp image that stays flexible because the ink is printed directly in the cotton. The image will stay crisp after frequent washing.
The cotton has a thread count of 144 threads per square inch, so it's soft to the touch virtually non-iron. The duvet cover is produced in Pakistan and child labor is not used. The matching pillowcases are sold separately.
But what makes this bedding even cosier is that Dutch by Design will donate 30% of gross profits of all sales of the Home Duvet to Centrepoint, the UK charity for homeless young people aged 16-25 (charity number 29241).
If purchased in the Netherlands from this site a large portion of the proceeds benefit go to SZN, the foundation for homeless youngsters in the Netherlands.

Centrepoint's Director of Services Clare Norton explains: 'every night Centrepoint provides support and housing for 800 homeless young people. We are grateful to businesses like Dutch by Design for raising awareness of their plight.'
