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.
