The insert of a pillow matters because it determines how plump and cozy the pillow will be. We prefer feather inserts for their quality & structure, and suggest the below U.S. retailers for ordering. If you are like us and prefer plump, filled out cushions, you should always get an insert that is one size bigger than the pillow cover.
Feathers give the pillow weight while down makes it comfy. The ratio of the two will decide how heavy or soft the pillow is and also how pliable the pillow is for styling. Too many feathers and not enough down can make a pillow prickly or stiff. On the flipside too few feathers can make a pillow flat and unsupportive.
We do not ship pillow covers with inserts because: (a) some people prefer down, down alternative or other types of allergy-free synthetic inserts and (b) international shipping costs are prohibitive. We have designed each pillow cover with international standard sizes in mind so you won’t have any trouble finding the right insert to fit your new espanyolet cover.
