A new service from June 2018 from Kelly & WindsorThere are an increasing number of Chinese visitors to Australian who
want to buy high quality Australian made products and take them back to
China for themselves or family members.
This is a relatively easy task with smaller low value items such as
souvenirs, cosmetics and health products. If on the other hand you wish
to buy a bed quilt there are a few things to consider apart from style,
price and and buying a genuine Australian made high quality brand.
Unfortunately bed quilts, doonas and pillows are quite bulky, heavy
In May 2018 we attended the 2018 Retail Global Conference in Queensland Australia.Why you might ask, would a luxury manufacturer of alpaca bedding want to go to Australia's leading digital marketing conference?Well, we feel that that today's online global sales and marketing opportunities offer a number of very real opportunities for us to globally promote the Kelly & Windsor brand of luxury bedding collections.The 2018 Retail Global Conference was a three day event, which was supported by several major international sponsors, Amazon, eBay and many local Australian cutting edge speakers.

What is the Kelly & Windsor BMI Matrix Alpaca Quilt Index?Before
you buy a new quilt, we would advise you to carefully consider what type of quilt
will suit you and your sleeping comfort. Your new quilt should last
years. You should get value, enjoyment and sleeping comfort from the
right quilt from your first night's sleep.So
how do you know which quilt suits you? It's not simply a matter of
price (cheap vs. expensive) or the weight of the quilt (a warm winter
quilt will be too hot in tropical climates) or being confused by the
POLYESTER... THE GOOD AND THE NOT SO GOOD NEWS?An experienced retailer associate asked me to explain why
polyester quilts and pillows are so popular, and secondly, what do the terms "microloft", "microsoft" and "microdenier" mean. She was

A Tog is a measure of the thermal resistance (warmth) of a quilt as measured under the UK Standard 5335:1991The Tog rating is an
expression of th..

Quilt Warmth Ratings: Which type and style of quilt is best for you?Unfortunately,
there is no universal measure of a quilt's warmth or its thermal
performance. Over the years, we have noticed that there are many ways manufacturers and retailers rate quilts and this must be confusing to

choice of the right quilt for you, depends upon many variables such as
the climate, room temperature and everybody's personal warmth/cooling
