Superb Product. Very helpful service in their Interesting Workshop
Nov 2020
Exceptional product. Best purchase I have ever made seriously. The duvet is used 8hours a day, every day, winter through summer. It is honestly like sleeping in clouds. Made to your own spec. Well worth the life long investment.
I have now had it for 5 years - it is as good now as when first purchased.

Amazing Experience Excellent Product
Jan 2021 • Business
My wife and I were looking for a comforter and bedding for our new home. I consider ourselves very lucky to have come across this family owned business right in the center of Budapest.

We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience. The quality of materials and the craftsmanship was second to none.

The owner was very friendly and professional he and his lovely family took the time to educate my wife and I on the process of how each product was made and quality of materials at each price point. We were able to make an informed decision based on our budget. Although it was a bit more expensive we chose the luxury quality for the duvet and sheet sets. It was the best decision I made although all the products were of terrific qualify you can definitely feel the difference at each level.

The first night on our new duvet and was like sleeping on a cloud. I couldn’t have been happier with this purchase. I recommend all my friends at home in the United States to use this company you definitely won’t be disappointed. They ship their products worldwide, the extra expense is definitely worth it.

What a find!
Feb 2020 • Solo
Well.... what an amazing place.
It was a bit of a weird place to find, a strange doorway nestled between a normal row of shops. A buzzer to get in, and a very old and well used wooden stairway down into a cellar. I know it sounds weird, but it had a smell of tradition and quality about it. You instantly understood the history of the place.

The family who run this company are truly passionate about what they produce, and their family history... they spent ages with me, explaining the different downs, the benefits of each pillow construction and they even got me to lay my head on them to assess the perfect pillow for me. They then made my perfect Hungarian goose down pillow! right then and there, they even let me film the whole process. I ended up getting pillows for the whole family and even some for friends, as they were also very well priced.

You cannot come to Budapest without visiting here, they have a wall of photos of all the film stars and famous people who visit and buy from them.
They are so humble and so friendly. I left feeling I had found friends who I could contact whenever I need bedding, and I know they will understand EXACTLY what I want. They will even ship it free to my home in the UK.

Thank you so much for such a great experience.
Five stars all day long !!!!

Awesome quality and service!
Dec 2019
While researching my trip to Budapest, I came across a Trip Advisor review of Elfenbein. All of the reviews were extremely positive and since I was in need of a new comforter, we visited Elfenbein. The establishment was in the basement, down an old wooden staircase. We were greeted warmly by Tamas who showed us his shop and offered us the opportunity to see and feel the different types of down and fabrics that they use. Tamas was extremely helpful and offered very sound advice to help us with our purchasing decision. We chose to buy a queen size comforter and two down pillows. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law also at this time purchased a comforter and two pillows, as well. Within two weeks, after arriving home, we received our purchases. We could not be happier! The quality is amazing. The comforter is extremely light weight but also comfortably warm. The pillows are great as well. If you are in Budapest, and in need of quality down products, this is the place. Also, I believe they have a website where orders can be placed. Check Elfenbein out!

My quest for the best pillows has ended
Dec 2019
Hi, I am a light sleeper so a quality pillow is a must for me. As a child, I used to love the pillows hand-made by my grandmother in Transylvania and as an adult I have been looking for them since.

When I stepped inside the shop, to be greated by the very team Tamas and father, I realised I was to find answers to all my questions.

I explained to Tamas that I was looking for a firm pillow that would last me a long time, that I have grown dissapointed by expensive pillows that loose their umpf in a year and that my holly grail was to find the pillows of my grandma.

He has shown me the vaious posibilities and explained the differences between feathers, a mix of feathers and down or pure down. And than came the test: I felt the various pillows and realised that the feathers one felt exactly like the ones in my childhood!

He explained that the feathers are selected and the stubby ends cut and that way the filling lasts for years compared with the more expensive down pillows which are great for some months before flattening out. It is suprisingly pleasant too. He made the pillows on the spot, filled them with as much filling as I wanted: he made me the greatest pillows!

So for excellent service, amazing products and answers to all your questions regarding bedding this is the man and this is the place: Tamas from Elfenbein.

If you are looking for goose down products look no further
Dec 2019
I had been looking to upgrade my bedding and had been searching for a good goose down comforter. Hungarian goose down popped up as the best quality option but I was shocked at the price tag. Since I had already planned a trip to Budapest , I though why not check out a local shop and maybe the quality/price will be better than what I can find online. A quick google search led me to Elfenbein. The shop is tucked away off the main street but still easy to find using google maps. You must ring a bell and wait to be buzzed into the shop. Don't be put off by the ancient wooden steps leading down to the shop. I was welcomed by a very sweet older gentleman, when he realized I only spoke English he called for his son Tamas. Tamas speaks fluent English and is super knowledgeable about his craft. The business has been in his family since his great uncle opened it in the 50's. It was a very special experience getting to see the raw material that go into the products, being able to touch the different types/qualities of good down and fabrics used. I even took a stab at stuffing a duvet comforter but I wasn't very good at it so I'll keep my day job. Tamas took the time to explain everything to me from fill power to construction of the comforter. He was not pushy and advised me on the best type of comforter for my needs; we decided on a queen medium quality, all season duvet,. Shipping to the United States was included in the price and because it was shipped to the US it was also tax free! He said that the comforter would be ready in a few days and then shipped via fed ex. I received an email confirmation that the duvet was shipped and 4 days later I received the product. I must say that if you've never experience real goose down you don't know what you've been missing what an upgrade from my IKEA comforter. Compared to my old duvet this comforter feels light as a feather, offers the right amount of warmth without making me feel hot and sweaty; thus I get a more comfortable and restful sleep. The price point for the quality of the product is unbeatable and the experience of visiting the shop is priceless.

Extraordinary Comforters
Oct 2019
I found this place on Trip Advisor--thank you! I was in the market for a new comforter and was traveling to Budapest so I found my way to Elfenbein based on the excellent reviews. Tamas was very helpful. I wanted a specific size that was somewhere between two standard sizes. He showed me bins of the types of down they use and let me inspect varying weights and qualities of comforters. I also purchased a duvet cover and he threw in two pillowcases! I told him when I would be arriving back home and he shipped it to arrive the next day--which it did! I cannot say enough about the level of service and the superb quality of their products.

The Best!!
Sep 2019
Unless you know about this place, you’ll never find it. Thank God for Tripadvisor :) Super friendly people and excellent English. It’s not a store where you come and buy from their inventory. Everything is custom made. You just tell them your measurements and how thick or thin you like it and they make it. I have 2 comforters and 2 pillows from them. Summer and all-season comforters and two different kinds of pillows. I love all of them. The comforters from Elfenbein seem to breathe more than the other down comforters I have. And therefore I sleep better. I truly recommend them!!

Best place to get real hand-made 100% Hungarian Goosedown
May 2019 • Family
I moved to Budapest this year from China. Goosedown blankets are my best childhood memories, and they can be really pricey in China or in the U.S. Elfenbein was the first shop I visited, and it is the best one-stop shop in this city! I highly recommend this place if you are looking for Hungarian Goosedown items and wanting to support family hand-made shops. The owner, Tamás can speak fluent English. There won’t be any problem communicating. If you have currency issues, don’t bother. They can accept euro or dollar, and you might even get a discount! Take a visit. Even if you are not living here, their products can still be one of the best gifts to family and friends.

我今年从中国搬来了匈牙利居住。这家店是我早已收藏的,一抵达布达佩斯就过来拜访了。位置是在一个地下室,完全是一个家庭式的作坊。他们只做100%匈牙利鹅绒的床上用品,并且所有商品都是手工制作的。鹅是匈牙利的特产之一,不管是在这居住自用还是回国送礼,都可以买一些鹅绒被或者鹅绒枕回家,价格并不是很贵。在中国或者在美国都是很难买到纯度和质量如此高的鹅绒制品的。老板英语说得很好不用担心,货币不通也没事,他们可以收美金或者欧元,并且可能还会有折扣!
