Did you know that France is a specialist in the manufacture of bed linen? The Descamps, Turpault and Delormes brands have existed since the 19th century and have perpetuated their know-how in the manufacture of household linen to this day. This is also the case for the house of Bouchara, known for its luxurious furnishing fabric, which has existed since 1899. Today, you can still buy duvet covers from these companies, whose price range varies, depending on the material, from a few dozen to a few hundred euros. Other companies have also followed: Becquet and Desforges, which offer top-of-the-range bed linen and collections that are renewed every season.
