Home Duvet: Cardboard Bedding for the Not-So-Homeless

Described by Dutch by Design as "the Home Duvet lets you sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn't have to!"

This duvet cover is designed by Peggy van Neer. The photographic print is produced on the cotton directly, so it will stay crisp after washing. Though I suppose if you never wash it, it would make it look and smell even more authentic... (Har, har.)

Dutch by Design donates 30% of gross profits of all sales of the Home Duvet to Centrepoint, the UK charity for homeless young people aged 16-25 (charity number 29241), which is pretty darn cool. Unfortunately, the pillows are sold separately. Proceeds from those also contribute to the charity.

As I personally have no desire to decorate in homeless-style faux-cardboard, I won't be purchasing this particular duvet, but it was too interesting an item not to share it. Sweet dreams!
