Down and feathers: a precious gift

Down and feathers are a precious gift from nature. Eventhough this material looks delicate it is in fact very durable. We collect down and feathers filled post consumer goods all over Europe and we extract the filling contents. Down and feathers are reprocessed, cleaned and sterilized so that they can be re-used as filling material in new bedding products or garments.

Our target: zero waste
Next to the recycling of down and feathers, we do our best to regenerate the other components of the used products collected. For example, the fabric shells are prepared to be recycled into industrial insulation. Even our own down and feathers waste is changed into an efficient organic fertilizer.
