What we do
We make up feather and down filled bedding and soft furnishings such as pillows, duvets, bolsters, neck pillows, cushions pads, floor cushions, sofa cushions, window seat cushions, bench cushions, Feather Wrapped Foam cushions (www.featherwrappedfoam.com) and much more. Everything is made by us in our own workshop in Edinburgh.
We specialise in small one-off orders and can make up our entire range to any size and density from your templates, covers and measurements. We offer a pillow and duvet re-covering service. We can boost up your flat feather sofa cushions with more filling or replace them with new feather sofa cushions. We can transform your existing feather and down filled items into something new. Leaking feather cushions can be re-covered too.
We can make up replacement Feather Wrapped Foam cushions for a range of Ikea sofas, Tetrad sofas, Sofa Workshop sofas, SofaSofa sofas, G Plan sofas, Duresta sofas, Whytock and Reid sofas, Howard sofas and many more.

History of company
The company was established in 1969 by my father, David Monro under the name of “Snuggler”. At that time, duvets were a new idea in the U.K and were available through only a handful of retailers. His first duvet was made up in his bedroom at the family home in Edinburgh. He quickly gained a reputation for his duvets and had to employ many friends to help cope with demand.
During the early 1970's he twice received the “Best Buy” recommendation from Which? magazine. Sales rocketed and more spacious premises had to be found, first in York Place and then George Street, Edinburgh. In 1979, we moved again into our current workshop located along Canaan Lane in Morningside.
With duvets becoming increasingly popular and competition growing, we diversified into offering a re-covering and topping-up service where customers could send us their old duvets for a new case and a boost up of more feathers and down. This service and many other products were added to the standard range including pillows, bolsters and cushion pads.
Our shop in Leven Street was opened in 1986 to stock a range of our products including many of the items in the website. Our shop attracted many loyal customers over the years. Now operating from our premises in Canaan Lane, we continue to offer a friendly and personal service to every customer.
After years of stuffing cushions and duvets during the weekend and school holidays, I took over the business from my father in 1996. In 2010, our website was launched so that customers throughout the U.K could buy our products and use our services. Please pay us a visit!
