Down is a natural material, derived from chickens, ducks or geese.

In general, down is not used on its own, but mixed with feathers (e.g. 85% down and 15% feathers). An inner cushion usually contains 100% feathers because they provide more support. We use white or grey duck feathers with IDFL accreditation. Down cushions feel softer and are ideal to sink into. They better maintain their resilience - just shake them up - but they offer slightly less support and are not suitable for allergy sufferers.

The ticking or casing of our down pads consists of 100% cotton or polyester cotton for a better quality look. The ticking has a percale weave, which means it is feather-proof.
