    Gosh, I bought a Canadian goose down duvet from John lewis for £570 and that's only 9 Tog and here are The Boston Duvet & Pillow Company doing a 10.5 Tog one for £12. How do they do it?

    Not used them myself nor would I, all sounds a bit suss to me.
    1. the prices are way to low to be quality bedding. If its too good to be true then it probably is!
    2. why are they removing the labels? which begs the question are they genuine products!

    Interesting that you quote Boston don't sell seconds . . .
    Their outlet was set up in March 2016 and reading their own blog entry from that date, they clearly state that they do indeed sell seconds.

    However, I've taken a punt and ordered a super king duvet for less than £18, including delivery.

    Even if it's no good, the dogs will love it in their new bed, I'm sure. The bonus with the easy care ones . . . chuck them in the washer (the duvet, not the dogs!!)

    I attempted to buy the luxury mattress cover with my credit card. Every time I tried to enter my credit card number it tried to complete it. After a few attempts to enter he first few numbers I gave up.

    I have never had this kind of trouble before. Just hope this was a legit site as it has my details.

    I've been researching quilts a lot lately as we need to upgrade and decided that a goose or duck down is the way to go, costs more but apparently last longer.

    As far as I can see this site has nothing apart from the cheapest and lowest quality.

    I'll continue shopping

    Fogarty
    It would appear from my payment (Paypal) receipt that "Boston" comes under the umbrella of "Fogarty filled products"

    Forgarty has been around in the bedding sector for many, many years . . . Based on that, I am more hopeful of a decent product.

    Just goes to show how stores hike their prices and the public are ripped off by greedy retailers.

    So . . . I'm flying the flag for "Fogarty" "Boston" and above all, a British Company.

    Just hope my order is up to scratch after that!.

    Boston Fogarty
    When I went to pay for my purchase, Fogarty fillings also came up.

    The only thing that concerns me is that I have seen Forgarty products for sale on market stalls in my town.

    I await to see the quality, though the price is very good..............

    I imagine yours probably has a high percentage of down compared to feather. I had such a headache comparing each one when I was looking.

    These are feather and down, not down. Completely different.

    Just purchased 10.5 tog replacement duvet for our kingsize bed @ £16 minus the 25% and also bought 3 x 10.5 tog duck feather and down duvet for our boys single beds @ £16 minus the 25%. Total including the postage (£4.99) came to £52.99. Checked out other retailers for the duck feather and down duvet and cheapest I could find was £38 - so well impressed with the saving !!! Thanks MSE for the heads up.....just have to work out how to tell my husband I have spent his money now.

    Can also confirm that the payment was taken by 'Fogarty' so am expecting quality goods.

    The person who was asking where to put in the code - it is on the checkout page to the right of where you put your personal details - so sort of in the middle of the page.

    Sorry to the other member who's code didn't work....it worked for me though.

    Code
    The code did not work for me at first, but then I tried typing it in manually, instead of copying and pasting it, and that did work. Hope this helps.

    Do you really want one?People who arent aware where 'down' originates from may be horrified to learn the answer. Artifical fillings may not be quite as good, but what price compassion?
    http://action.peta.org.uk/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=5&ea.campaign.id=50952

    The cheaper the product, the more likely its going to be from China or other places that have this cruel quick way of getting the down they want.

    Very unclear who owns this business no details on the webpage the 'about us' page just has some shonky story about a dog - all very strange.
    Are they a proper business? Are they really made in Britain? Certainly the wording is a bit vague saying only 'from UK' rather than the standard (and probably legally binding) Made in UK.

    Regarding quilts have a look here

    http://www.baavet.co.uk/shop/index.php?route=common/home

    They are woollen quilts and not cheap but they do have seconds. I got one 2 years ago and paid about £70.00 and its the best quilt I have ever had. Well worth the money.
