Thanks to additional cleaning procedures, our high-quality Paradies down and feather fillings are much cleaner than conventional standards. The product is washed, then steamed and sterilised at a temperature of at least 120–130 °C for 30 minutes to kill any bacteria or viruses. It’s more than clean – It’s SuperClean!
The quality and purity of Paradies down and feathers is checked and certified by the IDFL (International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory).
Due to its size, goose down retains more air than duck down. The fill power is also higher, which reduces the weight of duvets filled with goose down. Our duck down duvets are also of exceptionally high quality, making them superior to many of the less impressive goose down duvets on the market.
By the way, in accordance with EN 12934, our labels clearly distinguish between goose down and duck down. Many products on the market are labelled merely as “down” when they contain duck down. The performance of down depends less on the animal it comes from than on the conditions in which the animal is kept, its feed and also its age. All our high-quality Paradies down comes from Europe.
