Duvets became popular around the world in the 20th century as a convenient form of bed covering. In some parts of the world, they are also known as quilts and are used as extra bedding or mattresses in households in addition to regular mattresses for kids and extra guests.
The more expensive types of duvet inserts, down and silk comforters, are excellent insulators, making the combination of insert and cover very thin and light weight for the amount of insulation and warmth they provide. Other types of inserts that are now available, though not equal to down and silk comforters, still provide very good bed cover qualities.
Also, with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned, leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves, not necessarily requiring a duvet cover.
