Is it a box? No, it's a duvet...

Thirty per cent of profits from the cover, which is being marketed with the strapline "Sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn't have to", go to the youth homelessness charity.

Dutch by Design, an interiors company from the Netherlands, chose to partner with a UK charity after a similar scheme proved successful in Holland.

Besides raising funds, the duvet will also remind people of the plight of young people at risk of sleeping rough.

Five thousand covers have already been sold in the Netherlands, and 50 in the UK. Prices start at £33.95. Celebrity-signed duvets will be auctioned on eBay.
