dùsal are proud to be members of the European Down and Feather Association. The EDFA represents the interests of the feather-filling industry and are committed to defending consumer interests and animal welfare. In the dùsal supply chain, no duck or goose is reared or kept for the sole purpose of obtaining down and feathers.
As a member company of the EDFA, dùsal are committed to a documented traceability system and a code of conduct and, according to this, down and feathers used in our products are sourced responsibly and in-accordance with best practices in animal husbandry.
We appreciate that all of our trade customers have their own sustainability, welfare and environmental standards, and by sourcing all of our materials as ethically as possible we can help them deliver on their word.
Our manufacturing operations are designed to ensure that all of the natural down and feather fillings are as fresh as possible. Ideally, this means that the natural fillings we hold in pre-production stock are used within one month. As we manufacture to order, we in turn order the natural fillings from our European suppliers thereby ensuring we are only ever using pure, fresh fillings.
All of the feathers and down in our duvets, pillows and mattress toppers undergo a rigorous cleaning process before arriving with us. We will only accept down and feathers which have passed stringent turbidity testing, a process which helps determine if dust or dirt (organic and inorganic) is present. Samples of the material are soaked and agitated in pure water, which is then measured for clarity. European standards require a result of at least 300mm – at dùsal we will only accept a minimum standard of 500mm.
dùsal are allowed to use the Downafresh® accreditation, assuring customers that we have been examined by a hygienic laboratory for our processed feathers and down, and that we document the origin and processing of our natural filling material.
The range of duvets we present here on our website is just a starting point – of course, you can choose from all or any of these standard duvets or you are just as welcome to specify the natural and synthetic filled duvets that are right for you, your business and, more importantly, your customers.
The dùsal range of natural and synthetic filled pillows has been created to suit a wide range of price points and preferences for fills and firmness. The one thing these perfect pillow do have in common is that they are all made by hand, with pride, right here in Scotland.
Our high fill hotel quality mattress toppers are sure to enhance any mattress and will provide additional warmth and cosiness on those cold winter nights. The elasticated straps make it easy to attach to your mattress and the pure cotton fabric provides a naturally breathable cover on a product that dreams are made of!
