It is our aim that you enjoy bedding from Künsemüller even after many years of usage. Comfort and durability are the standards we aim to fulfil. This is why we put all our love into detail. We offer a wide range of innovative products and new developments at an interesting price-performance ratio.
The innovative dream factory
Künsemüller-Bedding insulates perfectly, regulates the temperature and is naturally breathable. In this way they naturally provide the perfect feel-good climate and optimal rest during sleep – so that you can start the day balanced, fitter and with more vitality. Our wide product range offers customised solutions for all needs and stands for quality you can rely on because we use only the best raw materials and the most innovative technologies.
The three components of high-end quality
1. The fabric
We use especially breathable and soft high-quality fabrics for our sleeves. Our focus is on selected raw materials and fine yarns. Here you can find out which other components are needed for a good pillow or duvet shell and what the thread density is all about.
Is calculated by adding the number of threads in both directions oft he wave – the warp and the weft, either in centimetres or inches. If a multi thread yarn is used for weaving, the threads count. All the casings we use have sufficiently high thread counts to not only prevent down and feathers escaping, but also stop the smallest dust mite from penetrating the casing.
The twill weave, which could be described as the original of ticking weaving, has a high degree of durability due to its high thread density. At the same time, it impresses with its extreme suppleness. Woven fabrics in twill weave can usually be recognized at one glance because of their diagonal twill ridges. The ridges result from the diagonal offset of the weave points. Each warp thread lies once above and twice below the individual weft threads – the best basis for feather- and down-tight pillow and duvet shells.
They are recognised by their frequent crossing points. By weaving the finest cotton yarns, the fabric pores are kept so small that the down cannot penetrate them. The simplest and at the same time closest crossing of warp and weft threads: each warp thread lies alternately once above and once below the individual weft threads.
Atlas bindings are usually easily recognised by their smooth surfaces that do not seem to have a structure and their silky sheen. Both is achieved through the evenly distributed crossing points. When combined with high-quality fillings you create particularly fine bedding.
2. The refinement
After weaving, a cloth is a raw material in the truest sense of the word. Innovative finishing techniques are needed to turn it into a fine, soft and breathable Künsemüller bed shells. At this point, our expertise is required to produce down-proof fabrics with an excellent moisture transfer, a lovely softness and the perfect feel. In addition, we process exquisitely refined fabrics such as the “Bramscher Tuch”.
Singeing & desizing
In order to remove the protruding fibres from a fabric, it is singed, ie. the fine hairs are burnt off. This only happens on the right side of the fabric, which is visible later.
During the ensuing desizing phase the sizing agent is dissolved so that it can be washed out. (The purpose of the sizing is to increase the resistance of the warp threads).
Bleaching & dwelling
White cotton fibres also show natural yellowing, which is removed with an oxidative bleaching agent. We use hydrogen peroxide which has to react and dwell for 48 hours. After this time, the fabric is washed again, because only white bedding and bedding for medical applications have the highest level of cleanliness and absorption.
Dyeing & drying
During the dyeing process a reactive dye is applied to the fabric which forms a chemical bond with the fibre. After a pre-set dwell time, the fabric is washed again to remove unbound dye. The fabric is then dried on the stenter frame and stretched to the appropriate width.
During the finishing process the fabric is made soft and supple in order to give the fabric the optimum feel.
Calendering & shrinking
In the calendering process the fabric is passed under pressure between rolls that make the fabric smoother and denser. Both pressure and speed influence the texture of a fabric.
To prevent a fabric from undesired shrinking, it is pre-shrunk by mechanically compressing it using a rubber blanket. At the same time, it gives the fabric a more supple and softer feel.
3. The filling
Only the perfect bed provides the highest degree of sleeping comfort. The key factor here is the correct filling of the bedding. At Künsemüller we can draw on over a century of experience and the best raw materials and latest technologies.
Duck and goose down
Ducks and geese never get cold, not even in winter: their dense, insulating plumage reliably protects them from both freezing temperatures and the water. This unique feature renders feathers and down ideal bed fillings. The quality of the end product depends just as much on the selection of the right raw materials, the cleaning, treatment and drying as does the correct mix and the right filling. Because a duvet only feels comfortable and cosy if it is light so that you can hardly feel it on your body . And it virtually has to hug the complete body so that no cold bridges develop.
Cashmere ist he finest and most valuable natural hair filling. The down oft he cashmere goat from the Central Asian highlands is incredibly heat-retentive and permits optimum heat regulation. After sorting, only approximately 100g finest down can be obtained from each animal for bed production. The extremely fine, curly down in this high-quality duvet is particularly soft, supple and so cosy that you will never want to do without this luxury again.
In their desert habitat, camels have optimally adapted to extreme temperature fluctuations of up to 60°C. Their down ensures optimum heat regulation and heat retention. In addition, moisture is quickly absorbed. The camel hair filling makes this duvet unbelievably lightweight, snug and gives it is outstanding heat insulation and the ability to transport moisture rapidly. Together with the fine cover fabric, this creates a pleasant and soft felling for you when sleeping.
Bamboo fibre is a wonderful, unique filling for duvets. It is very soft, highly absorbent and features outstanding temperatures control properties. Due tot he softness oft he material ant the unique body zone quilting, this duvet fits snugly around the body.
Wild silk is a fine, skin-friendly natural fiber with extraordinary moisture absorption. It is particularly suitable for sleepers with low heat demand and fort he warm season. Or silk bedding quilted in fine mako sateen, which supports the natural properties of raw silk and besides still has a very cozy feeling.
A high proportion of Tencel provides excellent moisture management. The fibre can absorb about 50% more moisture than cotton and releases this again quickly into the room air. Due to particularly smooth fibre structure. Tencel ist he 1st choice for dust mile allergy suffers. The special body zone quality makes this duvet particularly snug.
The special of tradition: Bramscher Tuch
We are the last cotton fabric finisher in Bramsche to preserve this artisan tradition, and thus supplies us with one oft he best fabrics available today. Bramscher Tuch is the combination of high-quality row materials, fine yarns and exclusive cotton finishing.
We rely on SanProCare® sensitive cotton fabric for specially-refined fabrics which incorporate special properties. It absorbs moisture particularly fast, distributes it across all fibres and releases this into the ambient air in the shortest-possible time. For a downy-soft, dry and warm bed climate, which significantly contributes to regenerative sleep!
