Our patented duvet products Piumini Danesi® pooq dene® have been produced in the same factory in Denmark for over 40 years.
The quality and variety of our products has risen thanks to the constant feedback and suggestions received from our loyal customers.
Due to the flood of imitation duvets on the market, judging the authenticity and quality of a duvet has become very difficult for the average consumer without the capability of verifying the fill content. You can touch and feel the exterior to find out if there are feathers inside, you can inspect the cotton shell to see if it looks densely woven and feels soft to the touch but the ultimate judge of quality is that it is produced by a reputable factory that correctly labels its products. So in the end the acquisition of an authentic down duvet remains a question of credibility and trust on the part of the merchant.
The factory purchases its down and feathers from Northern European farms that raise geese in the colder northern climate. In addition to manufacturing down duvets, our supplier is the last remaining factory in Denmark that processes down; they wash, dry and sterilize (120° Celsius) directly in the factory. These processes are carried out with the most modern machinery to minimise environmental damage. Their laboratory tests the purity by performing a series of tests: oxygen, grease and PH value for each batch of feathers and a series of air tests are made on the shell fabric to ensure no down/feathers seep out. “Simon” the mannequin tests a duvet's degree of insulation in their sleep lab.
Piumini Danesi pooq dene takes the age old Danish tradition of duvet making and accessories it with their Italian cottage industry sewn duvet covers.
|Our factory is a member of the European Down and Feather Association (EDFA) which opposes “live pluck”. Thanks to the obligatory traceability (EC Regulation 178/2002 also known as HACCP and EC Regulation 1069/2009) all the steps, from gosling to adult geese, are documented by veterinarians and subjected to strict controls by the responsible European bodies to ensure the absence of harmful pathogens.|
