ABOUT KAUFFMANN

The KAUFFMANN name stands for first-class quality products – Made in Austria – from Europe’s most modern manufacturing facility for down duvets. In addition to employing pioneering mechanical processing methods, we have maintained careful manual manufacturing processes. The key working steps are still hand-made. These numerous hand-made working steps are had but justified by the top quality.

All our downs are first wiped then hygienically washed before being carefully selected. The original hand-made process is still used for the filling phase of our high end products. In fact, it allows to distribute equally the determined amount of down precisely.

KAUFFMANN is one of the rarest manufacturer which produces everything. This means that each of the production steps are made in our house: from the selection to the washing of the down until the last seam on the product.

Thoughts of sustainability have been deeply rooted in the company’s philosophy for many years. We always do our best to act as responsible as possible in all the different areas of the company, socially, ecologically and economically.

Our down and feathers are not plucked from live animals. This is stated in the KAUFFMANN “RESPECTS ANIMAL WELFARE” codex. However, we check the purchasing of our down completely across all the different manufacturing levels and are thus able to prove the origin of our goods all the time. This is in order to protect animals and to enrich our society. KAUFFMANN – a company showing responsibility.

WHY DOWN?

Down and feather as a filling material for comforters and pillows have had a very long tradition within Middle Europe. Nature has given geese and ducks a dress of feathers as a means of protection against the cold and heat. According to their structure and construction down and feathers are made in a fashion that a wonderful system of small air channels and air pockets are formed. This leads to a perfect heat-insulating layer.

Up to today, first-class down are still the lightest and most natural filling material: less weight – high volume. Down absorb the spent humidity of the body and quickly pass it on to the room air. Kauffmann down duvets are extremely easy to care and washable at 60° C / 140° F.

BUT WHAT DISTINGUISHES DOWN FROM FEATHER?

The word “down” comes from Icelandic and is a layer of very fine feathers found under the tougher exterior feathers of waterfowl. It consists of small tufts of light and fluffy filaments, which – unlike feathers – have no hollow shaft and no rachis. Therefore, down is cuddlier and, because of its fine ramifications, stores much more heat than feathers.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR DUVET?

The filling power – measured in CUIN – is the primary scientific standard for the quality of the down. The higher the filling power, i.e. the CUIN value, the better the quality. By pointing out the filling power of its collections, KAUFFMANN clearly stands by its commitment to quality!

At the same weight, first-class down is several times more voluminous with a much greater filling power, making it fluffier than normal down. The duvet is perceptibly lighter with the same thermals performance. The best duvet is the one, which has the highest thermal insulation property at the lowest weight.

All our duvets are made from down and feathers from Europe and offer a 5 years warranty.
