partners with Allied Feather & Down
Our sourcing partners at Allied Feather & Down ensure the most responsibly-sourced and -processed down insulation available. With quality control being paramount, their down is considered the highest-caliber. A byproduct of the food industry, they work with global suppliers who meet stringent requirements and test for content, species, fill power, cleanliness, and more to ensure the down is free of chemicals and irritants. Allied’s down consistently measures above the standard of hypoallergenic down, making it the cleanest and most allergen-free down available, but the best way to achieve the warmest, lightest, most durable down is to clean it properly. All down undergoes Allied’s proprietary washing process which involves multiple washes in biodegradable, environmentally-friendly detergent and recycled water. From the washer, the down is thoroughly dried, cooled, and de-dusted. It then passes through a metal detector and is shipped in bags and containers that prevent foreign elements like dirt and oil from compromising the quality. This thoroughness and objectivity ensures that all down used in our products not only meets but exceeds industry requirements.
