Examples of certifiable articles: raw and dyed / finished yarns, raw and dyed / finished fabrics and knitted fabrics, made up articles (all kinds of clothing, home and household textiles, bedding, terry cloths, textile toys, etc) It ensures that no chemicals are used in manufacturing the fabric, safe for you and safe for the environment.

Downpass / Traumpass Certified

Products with this certification stand for high quality and the assurance that the down and feathers used are ethically harvested and come from a strictly controlled and traceable supply. The companies that have this certification guarantee that their products come exclusively as by products from the poultry-meat production of slaughtered animals.

RDS Certified

The “Responsible Down Standard” ensures that the down and feathers come from ducks and geese that are treated well. This means enabling them to live healthy lives, express innate behaviours and not suffer from pain, fear or distress. The standard also follows the chain of custody from farm to product so consumers can be confident that the down and feathers in the products they choose are truly RDS.

DIN Certo Certified

This Certificate is an audited Certificate that assures that our suppliers do not derive their down and feather from live animals. They have committed themselves to this in the Traceability Codex and are audited by Din Certco.
