Responsible Down Standard
Practices for ethical quality
Nature is our greatest source of inspiration; it is where we imagine our garments to come to life. We are constantly working to protect and improve it, which is why we are taking small but significant steps toward more ethical and sustainable production. To accomplish this, we work with partners who not only share our values but also assist us in reducing our environmental impact and using raw materials that protect animal welfare. We have chosen Responsible Down Standard certified down and feathers for our garments.
The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) describes and certifies animal welfare practices in down and feather production and tracks certified down and feathers from farm to final product. Ninety-four percent of our down and feathers is certified to the Responsible Down Standard (RDS).
