Welcome to Inside beautiful… a world of information about creating the foundations for pillows, indoor/outdoor cushions, bedding and more. After all, it’s what’s on the “inside” that counts! We have a wide variety of choices when it comes to filling, and that can be somewhat confusing when trying to choose the right combination of fill/fiber/feathers for your clients. See below information that can help you when making those decisions. If there are still questions you might have, please call us! We are always here for you!
We use cleansed and sanitized duck down. Our down is ethically harvested, triple washed, and then sanitized at our factory. We tumble it for several hours to produce a lovely mixture of soft and lofty fill.
Ideal for high quality bedding and decorative purposes.
We use only 2-4 cm soft feathers. The feathers are ethically harvested, washed, steam cleaned, and sanitized at our factory. These feathers have a nice curl, small quills, and a small percentage of down-like quality fibers.
Ideal for throw pillows and seat cushions.
Down & Feather Blends:
We custom blend and sanitize our down and feather at our factory. Typical blends include: Soft feather (5% down, 95% feather), 10% down/ 90% feather, 25% down/75% feather, 50% feather/50% down, 80% down/20% feather. Our down/feather blends are meticulously combined to ensure a uniform mix and exceptional loft. We then tumble each blend for hours to ensure a consistent, high quality product.
10% down and 90% feather is ideal for throw pillows, seat cushions and backs.
25% down and 75% feather is ideal for high quality throw pillows, seat cushions and backs, as well as envelopes.
50% down and 50% feather is well suited for sleep products such as pillows, duvet inserts, feather beds, and mattress toppers.
80% down and 20% feather is ideal for luxurious sleep products including pillows, duvet inserts, feather beds, and mattress toppers.
