Raw materials: Feather & down

In 2020 we introduced reclaimed feather and down into a collection of duvets and pillows. EarthKind™ duvets and pillows are produced in the UK, the fillings are created using the Global Recycle Standard (GRS). Natural filling from preloved duvets and pillows is reclaimed, sorted, cleaned, sterilised and heat-treated to create a premium fresh blend.
