In the Making: Bedding
As part of a new blog series, we’ll be investigating how our luxury products are made, starting with some of our bedding, with particular focus on our Duck Feather & Down and Duck Down ranges. Have you ever wondered how these are so soft and lightweight? Keep reading to find out more, as we delve deeper into our bedding manufacturer’s production processes…
- How are these products made?
All Down & Feather filled duvets and pillows are produced in northern Germany, near Hamburg. When fillings arrive into these German warehouses, it is then quality tested in our bedding partner’s laboratory, which is EDFA (European Down & Feather Association) acknowledged. All of our filling materials go through unique production processes, which includes several washing and separating procedures to achieve the highest purity.
Also, Feather & Down is filled into the cotton shells using state-of-the-art, computer-steered filling machines. Once filled the products are sewn, labelled and folded. Before the products are packed, they are quality controlled one last time and sent for delivery.
- Are there any special types of machinery used?
There are several hi-tech machines which help us promise the best quality of bedding, including a water recycling plant and an in-house power plant fuelled by eco-gas. Eight filling machines are used for duvets, while 3 different filling machines are used to manufacture the pillows.
If you think you’re in need of some new bedding, why not take a closer look at our Duck Feather & Down Duvet or Duck Down Duvet? You may want to start think about getting yourself a new summer duvet with a lighter tog?
See you soon,
Feather & Black.
