Contents / Fillings
Down is a wonderful gift of nature. A quilt filled with down is soft and cuddly. Down ensures a deep and restorative sleep. Due to its special consistency, down can easily absorb moisture and release it into the environment. Down insulates outstandingly and thereby mediates a constant feeling of well-being during sleep – at all temperatures and throughout all seasons.
Feathers possess characteristics of flexibility. They have a hollow keel and on the sides little branches that all connect together to form the barb. The feathers protect the goose or duck against wetness and additionally, together with the down act as an insulator. Feathers can be heavily burdened, without breaking. One can squeeze them together and they will spring back again and again. For these reasons, goose and duck feathers are the perfect filling material for pillows. This elasticity is called "filling capacity”.
Phase Change Technology (PCM) – Micro-capsules
Until recently, the insulating capacity of our quilts and pillows has determined how warm or cold we are during sleep. The Phase Change Technology with micro-capsules supplements this passive insulation by an active system. It reacts to changes in the environment and in body temperature and adapts accordingly. Variations in temperature are regulated and the perfect conditions for continuous sleep comfort is created.

Microgel fibres are special polyester fibres based on a completely innovative spinning technology. The fibres are very thin (1/100 of a human hair) and consequently feel extremely soft and downy. The products are very soft and pliable. The fibre is extraordinarily thin and has excellent filling capacity. Easy care and short drying times, no clumping in the wash or when it comes into contact with moisture are characteristics of these fibres.
