The feather for our inners are sourced from China, and then sewn up here in New Zealand. The Feather itself is a by-product of the duck meat industry in China. It is sourced from suppliers certified as being humane harvesters of feather and Down. This ensures:
- No live plucking
- No force feeding
- Bird welfare is paramount
The suppliers are audited and certified as being compliant on an annual basis.
Cushion Inner Alternatives
If you are not wanting feather cushion inners. then other alternatives can be teased wool, or recycled fibre. We have offered Wool Inners in the past, but they are very labour intensive to make. We can offer an inner made from recycled fibre. These have a heavy feel to them and need plumping and fluffing. We are currently looking into the option of a dacron polyester inner made from recycled plastic bottles. We do not offer pure dacron inners as they a synthetic made from virgin crude oil.
