All products are filled with white goose down, duck down or blends of feathers and
down. We source our materials from Europe and Asia.
All our comforters are encased in a “supersoft”
100% down proof cotton
ticking. We use the CentroClean™ sterilization process to
allergens from our products. This process (described below) is
specifically created for washing feathers and down and in addition to
sanitization and maximum sterilization, results in feathers of great
curl and loft. All our products are highly sanitized and
hypoallergenic. We also manufacture synthetic/polyplush options and of
course we’d be happy to answer any questions about our
synthetic products, too.
Down is the cluster found on the underbelly of a goose or a duck. The
clusters of soft, fine fibers stem from a central point. As they
interlock they trap air. It's the air that keeps you warm. Different
birds from different climates develop different qualities of down.
Generally, the colder the climate, healthier the diet and more mature
the bird, the larger and warmer the down cluster. The ultimate
qualities of down offer the most warmth with the least amount of
weight. This is why a higher quality down, which has a higher fill
power and loft, offers the most warmth.
Feathers are the outer plumage of a waterfowl. Feathers have a quill
and are flatter than a down cluster. They are thicker and do not trap
air as efficiently as a down cluster. Many of our products are a mix of
down and feathers. We offer these blends to provide products at varying
price points, support preferences and warmth. Generally, more down in a
product yields a fluffier and softer pillow or comforter. More feathers
yield a firmer pillow or comforter.
Fill Power is the standard that measures the number of cubic inches
filled by an ounce of down. The more space an ounce "fills," the warmer
the product. The more space it occupies, the more air it traps. (It's
always the air that provides the warmth and
The down collection offers white goose down at 650 fill power. This means that
one ounce of white goose down occupies 650 cubic inches. The same
amount of Duck Down fills only 550 cubic inches. White goose down is
fluffier, (it traps more air), providing more warmth. Ounces of fill
are determined by how you want the overall product to look and feel.
Our standard products are carefully measured to insure maximum warmth
for your investment. We can manufacture custom products to meet
specific client specifications.
Loft is fondly referred to as the "pouff" or
“fluff” of a comforter or
pillow. It’s achieved by having air flowing through the
The fabric around the comforter or pillow.
Fabrics that allow the down to "breath." Without oxygen, the feathers
and down become flat and do not provide warmth. Down Proof ticking also
prevents the fill from leaking.
GERMAN COTTON PIPING
We use 100% cotton piping on all our pillows and comforters because it
is durable and can withstand the high heats of industrial dryers.
BAFFLE BOX CONSTRUCTION
Ticking is sewn with interior walls that separate the down into box
shaped compartments. This displaces the down evenly throughout the
comforter and prevents it from lumping and helps to maintain its loft.
The "baffle” height is 1 1/4", which keeps the two layers of
lifted apart to allow air to evenly flow throughout the comforters.
Thread count is measured by the number of stitches sewn per inch.
Thread count for our collections range from 235TC to 330TC. We can
customize to your design specifications.
CENTROCLEAN™ STERILIZATION PROCESS
Our feather and down products are all thoroughly cleaned, exceeding
industry standards. We use a specialized cleaning process called
CentroClean™ to insure that our products are highly sanitized
hypoallergenic. We wash our feathers and down for a minimum of 50
minutes using Henkel/Fluidol K 6 German detergent. This product is
specifically created for washing feathers and down. The feathers are
rinsed 20-30 times until the water is both clean and tested. Once the
wash line is quality checked, the feathers are sent to steam dryers,
resulting in feathers of great curl and loft. Our sterilization process
meets hypo-allergenic requirements -- The CentroClean™
allergens and dust from down and feathers.
