Duck Down (70/30 percent) Summer Duvets - Tog heat rating of 4.5
Down is deceptively warm and in many regions of South Africa, autumn or full winter duvets are too thick for use in summer in humid and warm places. Makoti started making (yup, the rest followed!) a thin Summer Duvet that can be used by itself for summer OR can be clipped onto an Autumn Duvet to make an All-Season Winter Combo.
Your duvets are filled with top quality duck down. This is a superb mixture of 70% pure down and 30% soft downy feathers.
You can start with investing in a Summer Duvet and buy an Autumn one later to clip together for the cold winter months.
Makoti down duvets are manufactured using a fully washable, pre-shrunk, finely woven (down-proof ) imported 100% cotton, and filled with the finest locally and internationally produced down. All our down products carry the NOMITE label, ensuring that they are ideal for allergy sufferers.
Superior Manufacturing Quality
Decades of experience and expertise have gone into the construction, ensuring that Makoti’s Down Duvets deliver years and years of comfort and warmth.
Every duvet is sewn with the utmost attention. Every row of blocks is sealed from the next so that your down remains evenly spread throughout the duvet. There are small holes between the blocks in a row (for filling) which ensures minimal down movement. There is no down movement between the rows of blocked down in your duvet.

The NOMITE label means that our down duvets are perfectly suited to allergy suffers.
All our down duvets and pillows carry the NOMITE label, which deems it fit to be used in a house dust mite allergy sufferer’s home. The down and feather-filled products provide excellent thermal and climatic conditions – they warm you up rapidly when you’re sleeping but also decrease the bed’s humidity if the room is aired regularly. This makes it a very poor habitat for house dust mites to live in, as they thrive in humid conditions.
Another protective element to re-assure you is our tightly woven down-proof fabric – this makes it impossible for house dust mites to penetrate the fabric. Therefore, people suffering from dust allergies may enjoy the warmth and comfort of down and feather-filled duvets and pillows displaying the NOMITE mark.
