Shopping for a nice but affordable duvet is often tricky in Hong Kong. While there are many brands to choose from, the options split between the two extremes of (a) the super expensive ones from Lane Crawford and Prince's Building (e.g. an eiderdown duvet which costs around HK$60,000); and (b) the relatively cheaper ones from Wing On and Sogo (many of which claim to be "manufactured in China with European feathers").
Miss Curator believes customers only look for two basic things - a reliable brand with a reasonable price. As most people will never cut open their pillows and duvets to find out what is actually inside, you want a trustworthy brand and not having to worry about what you are sleeping with every night.
The White Company London was founded in 1993, with a mission to create a company that specialised in supplying stylish, white, designer quality items for the home that were affordable. Today, The White Company has 47 stores in the UK and 10 more in the Middle East. Their simple but elegant products range from ben linen, towels, furniture, clothing to children products.
Comparing to Zara Home, we find the products at The White Company to be of higher quality (which, unfortunately, also comes with a higher price).
If you are looking for some high quality bedroom or bathroom products, go take a look at The White Company's online store.

For Hong Kong weather, the 9 tog autumn/spring duvet works perfectly as a year-round "four season" duvet. Also, don't forget to check the right size for your bed - the rule of thumb is that the size of your duvet should be one size bigger than your bed (i.e. a double bed should go with a king size duvet).
