Heads in Beds
By Araxe Hajian
We plan our meals, we plan our workouts, we plan our days. And yet, when it comes to the third of our life we spend sleeping — how many of us have a plan?
THE DOWN DIFFERENCE
“We believe a good night’s sleep is a basic necessity to your wellbeing,” says Susan Fowler, who named her company Down to Basics based on this very concept. Founded more than 25 years ago, Down to Basics specializes in the light and lofty down comforters and pillows that make Miraval’s beds so blissful. Made of the highest-quality down and adapted duvet covers, the bedding sets are known for their breathability. A Swiss Batiste cotton shell with high-quality Hungarian down, for example,
has longer filaments and larger clusters, allowing it to remain more plush without the undesired weight and heaviness of other lower-quality fillers. Down pillows, too, adjust to the shape of the head and the neck of the sleeper. Designed to last for decades, these comforters are also preferred for their cleanliness. “The down products can be washed and dried (be sure to dry thoroughly to bring down back to its fluffiness), which is why they’ve been adopted by some of the world’s top spas and hotels,” Susan says. “When taken care of, a down comforter will last 20 years and beyond, which is just pennies per night to sleep in lofty luxury.
