Downs and Feathers
As downs and feathers are natural products ongoing quality monitoring is particularly important to ensure that product performance is consistently maintained at a defined level. In the investigations the composition, bird species and contents are the main quality features considered.
The experts also inspect the cleanliness and hygiene of the filling materials, the cover impermeability of sleeping bags as well as all types of bedding materials and clothing items.
Being a supplementary service, the testing of downs and feathers can be combined with the testing and services as per OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, for example in the field of sleep comfort or tests for harmful substances.
