How is Mont down sourced?

For several years Mont has manufactured exclusively using duck down as opposed to goose down, for several reasons. First and foremost, Mont duck down is a by-product of the food industry and is not live plucked. Secondly, duck down offers the same performance as a goose down of similar fill power. For example, an 800 loft duck down has the identical weight and warmth as an 800 loft goose down. Thirdly, it is more affordable with no loss in performance allowing us to keep our prices competitive.

As for sourcing this down, we enlist a down supplier who is certified by the China Feather & Down Industrial Association (CFDIA) and signed up to CFDIA Non Live-Plucked Products Guarantee. This guarantee is a refusal to produce, process or sell live-plucked down or feathers, and an assurance that all goods originate from the food industry.

The CFDIA down supplier sources down from appropriate poultry farms, cleans it, tests it, and grades it. Before any down is sent to Mont's factories, it is independently tested for purity and quality by the International Down and Feather Laboratory (IDFL).

Mont is committed to producing and supplying cruelty free down products.
