Controlled quality ensures excellent bedding materials

Dec '12
Every year in Germany about 5 million items of bedding materials with down and feather fillings are sold. There is a wide price spectrum here and there are also big variations in quality. Therefore how can high-quality bedding materials be identified? 

In order to ensure healthy and restful sleep, manufacturers of high-quality bedding materials endeavour to achieve the best possible combination of filling and cover materials. The quality of the grey goods and the processing are also constantly monitored in order to ensure a consistent quality standard in the natural products. The most important criteria here are:

• Composition of the filling material
• New waterfowl products
• New waterfowl products
• Hygiene and cleanliness of the filling material
• Quality of the cover material
• Additional criteria such as sleeping comfort, heat insulation and products tested for harmful substances.
 
Juliane Hedderich, Managing Director of the German Down and Feather Association(Verband der Deutschen Daunen- und Federnindustrie e.V), the European Down and Feather Association (Verband der europäischen Bettfedern- und Bettwarenindustriee.V) and the Association for Quality Control of the Feather Label (KontrollgemeinschaftFedern-Siegel e.V) emphasizes the importance of neutral quality controls: 
 
"Whether you are a sales person or a customer, you cannot look inside a pillow or a duvet and form your own opinion. Therefore comprehensive labeling of the materials used and their properties is required”, the qualified economist and standardisation expert stresses. “This means that it is important that the data is controlled on an ongoing basis by a neutral agency. This is the only means of ensuring that the customer receives the high quality that he has paid for."
