What is a DOWNPASS label?

Products labelled with the DOWNPASS guarantee high quality and the certainty that down and feathers used as filling material are ethically sourced and come from tightly controlled and traceable supply chains.

Even during the COVID19 pandemic, extensive controls will continue.

In addition, the quality of all products is monitored by independent testing institutes.
In short, so you know what's in it.

What does it mean when I buy a product with the DOWNPASS label?

Animal welfare when processing animal components and transparency in supply chains are a key concern.

They want to make sure that all the products they trade meet the highest ethical standards.

That's why they opted for a zero tolerance standard audit.

Specifically, this means that customers can be sure that they will not find material from live plucking or from foie gras production in bedding, clothing or outdoor equipment.
The rearing of the animals must be controlled permanently by independent third parties - even without notice.

At DOWNPASS, they appreciate that in addition to these animal welfare criteria, product quality is also monitored by testing laboratories.


A DOWNPASS certification is valid for 2 years.
After the initial audit, ongoing controls are carried out during the year
of the farms, wholesalers and producers.
At the end of the 2 years, the companies must be re-audited.
