Down

All of our virgin down is certified to the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). The RDS independently certifies down against animal welfare requirements and tracks it from the source to the final product.

The purpose of The Responsible Down Standard is to:

☑️ Every stage is certificated from farm to final product

☑️ Respect for the animal welfare of the birds throughout their lives

☑️ Live plucking or moult-harvesting is prohibited

☑️ Force-feeding is also prohibited

Recycled Down

We use recycled down in many products. This cannot be RDS certified. We only source recycled down certified through the Global Recycled Standard (GRS), a voluntary standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials.

Responsible Down Standard

The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) independently certifies down and feathers against animal welfare requirements and tracks it from farm to final product.

While down products have revolutionised the way we dress for outdoor activities, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that the raw material is farmed from animals on a large scale. As the popularity of down garments grows, we have an increased responsibility to ensure that our insulation is produced in environments where animal welfare standards are being maintained.

That’s why all down sourced from farms into our supply chain is Responsible Down Standard certified, certified by Control Union CU839597. The RDS independently certifies down against animal welfare requirements and tracks it from the source to the final product. The purchase of Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified products demonstrates demand for better animal welfare practices in the down and feather supply chain.

The purpose of The Responsible Down Standard is to:

 Protect Animal Welfare. Holistic respect for animal welfare of the birds throughout their lifecycle.

 Prohibit Live-Plucking or Force-Feeding. Any removal of down and feathers from live birds (live-plucking or molt-harvesting) is prohibited; force-feeding is also prohibited.

 Identify the Chain of Custody. Certification ensures that the identity of RDS down and feathers is maintained at all times: from the farm to the final product.

 Provide Credible Certification. A professional, third-party certification body audits each stage in the supply chain.

 Ensure Confident Communication. Only products with 100% certified down and feathers may carry the RDS logo.

 Maintain Stakeholder Engagement. The RDS was developed with the input of farmers, animal welfare experts, land conservation experts, brands and retailers from all parts of the globe.

In 2021, we stopped using silk.

We’re not convinced that there is a silk production method that is humane and meets animal welfare best-practice. We will sell our existing stock to avoid sending it to landfill.
