Environmental as well as resource-saving raw material extraction and production, toxin-free (pollutant-free) and biodegradable products up to the complete reuse or return of the materials to the origins, this is what recyclable comforters and pillows stand for.
The international and producer-independent DOWNPASS Standard documents the ethical procurement of the down and feathers from ducks and geese. Keeping animals in cages and force feeding are prohibited, plucking down and feathers from live animals is forbidden. The downpass is a criterion for the SWISS GUARANTY VSB label.
We get 100 % of the electricity we use from renewable energy sources. The company’s own photovoltaic plant of Dorbena AG has been supplying around 50 % of our electricity requirement since as far back as 2010; we draw the rest from ecological water power from LiStrom NATUR.
No bacteria, no mites, no odour
In the duvets and pillows treated with Sanitized®, not only the filling but also the cover (fabric) feature Sanitized® protection.
The protection from mites, bacteria, mould fungus and unpleasant odours is laundry-proof and features a long-term effect lasting a number of years. Presence of the protection has been proven even after 50 washing cycles.
All fabrics can be treated with Sanitized®.

Unique climate regulation and optimum temperature balance
DORBENA uses the very latest temperature-regulating PCM technology (Phase Change Material) from NASA space exploration, incorporating it into the high-quality, very cuddly duvets, pillows and mattress covers with Outlast®. You need never feel chilly or perspire again under these duvets or on these pillows. This allows the body to recover during the important rest phase and become energised for the coming day.
Outlast® fibres with PCM absorb excess heat, store it and release it again. The huge benefit is that perspiration is greatly reduced and an active, dynamic temperature regulation achieved. Result: The “sleeping den” remains dryer and the sleeper enjoys a relaxing night’s rest.
