All of our down is 100 % certified to the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). We require all down used in our products to be a residual product from food production. Because of our commitment to animal welfare, we also decline to do business with suppliers who remove down and feathers from live birds (live-plucking or molt-harvesting) and/or who practice force feeding. In addition, Bergans’ down supplies are tested by the IDFL (International Down & Feather Laboratory) before being used in our products. This guarantees both you and us high quality and ethically produced down.
