Not all pillows are created equal! However, now you can find a high-quality, disposable pillow cover for your accommodations no matter your location and your pillows’ sizes. Ever since the formation of the European Union, a trend of standardisation across the continent has taken place. The ISO norms, for example, gained adoption in the EU Parliament and have played a major role in transforming regulations in a wide variety of industries, including agriculture, manufacturing and transport.
One field that has continued to elude standardisation, however, happens to be tourism — and more specifically, the hotel industry. The sizes of beds, and by consequence their sheets and linens, varies greatly between one country and the next. In addition, often the most variable aspects of linens dependent on nationality comes in the form of the pillow.
Who would have thought getting a good night of rest would prove this difficult? Caractere sought to resolve the controversy over pillow sizes once and for all by conducting research with hotel and guesthouse owners throughout the continent. What we concluded was, there are five standard pillow sizes in Europe:
- British (also known as Oxford or Queen) – 50 x 75 cm / 20″ x 30″
- French (also known as square or continental) – 65 x 65 cm / 26″ x 26″
- Italian (rectangular) – 50 x 80 cm / 20″ x 32″
- Spanish 50 x 75 cm / 20″ x 30″
- Our brand new, large German size – 80 x 80 cm / 32″ x 32″
- Finally, the stylish Navy Blue Cushion pillow covers, sized 45 x 65 cm / 18″ x 26″
Manufactured with care from a technologically-advanced material, these soft and durable, disposable pillow covers are ideal for hotels, motels, hostels, inns, B&Bs, day care centres and even unexpected visits from friends at home.
The hypo-allergenic fabric has no chemical or plastic smell, so guests will be able to enjoy a wonderful night’s sleep, whether you use with another layer as a pillow case or not. The covers are also effective at preventing the spread of lice, bed bugs, bacteria and dust mites in pillows, mattresses, and other bedding materials. After up to one month of use (or more, depending on the user’s preferences), these pillow cases can be thrown away or recycled.
The pillow cases come individually packaged, so cleanliness and hygiene are guaranteed for every client, every time. They open in the middle of the underside, which means fast and easy deployment, as well as an improved level of protection and coverage for both the pillow and the client. Each pillow case comes over-sized direct from the manufacturer, which ensures they will fit virtually all pillows sizes in the EU.
So now, British hotel owners, as well as others throughout Europe, can rest assured with their choice to open accommodations anywhere on the continent.
