HEFEL down bedding brings together the naturally soft fluffiness of feather-light down and a shell of finest cotton batiste - in combination with exclusive Bodyfit quilting this guarantees unequalled cosiness and optimal warmth distribution. Down filling + down batiste + quilting ideally complement each other and guarantee 100% snugly warm sleep Made in Austria.
RDS - RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD
The entire HEFEL "The Honest Down" range (exception: Eiderdown) is RDS (Responsible Down Standard) certified. This certification guarantees that feathers and down are sourced from ducks and geese farmed in species-appropriate and healthy conditions. The standard applies to the entire supply chain – from the farm/poultry farm to the finished product - in order to ensure seamless traceability. The welfare of the animals is the highest priority - this means best conditions for keeping and feeding the poultry (no force-feeding!) and also a ban on live-plucking.
THE HONEST DOWN COMFORTER
As is clear from the name, "The Honest Down Certificate" stands for the honest down comforter. This means that the filling used in "The Honest Down" comforter corresponds exactly to what is stated on the label. In addition these comforters are certified to exclusively contain Class 1 down and feathers as per EU standard EN 12934. Honesty and sincerity are extremely important fundamental principles and are central to the HEFEL "The Honest Down" range.
OUR PROMISE TO NATURE
HEFEL has verified that it does not process any goose down obtained from living birds. Suppliers are carefully checked so as to ensure compliance with this quality standard. Appropriate animal welfare standards and keeping the geese in a natural environment are key factors. We guarantee transparent, seamless documentation for the supply chain.
PURE GOOSE DOWN SUITABLE FOR ALLERGY SUFFERERS
All HEFEL down quilts are certified to comply with the NOMITE label and are therefore proven to be suitable for household dust allergy sufferers. The interaction of climate and warmth in pure down quilts which is so ideally suitable for people represents an unfavourable environment for dustmites.

The wold's finest bedding fabrics are produced in-house at the HEFEL ticking weaving mill. The materials used are exclusively sourced from known suppliers.

HEFEL "The Honest Down" summer and all seasons comforters are available in the exclusive HEFEL Bodyfit quilting design - a quilting pattern that drapes itself around the body to provide the ideal snug fit.

"THE HONEST DOWN" TENCEL DOWN GOOSE
For the first time TENCEL down combines the warmth, light weight and fluffy cosiness of a down-filled quilt with the highly breathable and moisture-regulating characteristics of TENCEL. Filling + fabric +quilting are perfectly matched.
The TENCEL down filling wicks away moisture released during sleep and transfers it to the TENCEL fabric which then disperses it to the outside air. The shaped HEFEL Bodyfit quilting creates a cosy space around the body and optimises the snug feel of the quilts. TENCEL down keeps the sleeping environment dry and fresh and ensures warm and cosy sleep.
