Whether you're looking for a duvet for your dorm room or want a high-quality cover that will last for years, choosing a duvet is a big decision—after all, it could affect how many z's you catch every single night. Nothing beats cotton and linen when it comes to coolness and breathability, so we've rounded up some of our favorite natural-fiber options at a range of price points. Take your pick from these beautiful duvets, then get ready for your best sleep ever.


The tailored look of subtle gray stripes makes this 100% cotton duvet cover look much more expensive than it is. Snap closures that let you switch out the insert easily and a machine-washable fabric make it incredibly convenient.

If you like the soft feel and relaxed look of jersey, this organic duvet from The Company Store is for you. The cover adheres to Global Organic Textile Standards and its dyes are Oeko-Tek certified, meaning it's safe for both you and the environment.

Looking for a patterned duvet cover? Urban Outfitters should be your go-to source. Trendy motifs, like the Moroccan tile-inspired option above, are available in 100% cotton and are reversible so you can flip to the solid color side whenever you want a more subdued style.

This innovative, two-toned option from Crane & Canopy is a cross between a duvet cover and a flat sheet. Interior ribbons keep the insert from shifting, and a zipper closure makes changing the insert faster and simpler.
