What is RDS?
The RDS is an independent, voluntary, global down standard that places a great deal of emphasis on animal welfare. The standard is owned by the Textile Exchange and certified by a third party, Control Union. RDS was developed over a period of three years and reviewed with the support of animal welfare groups, industry experts, brands and retailers. The standard recognises "best practice" (the best methods/processes) in the field of animal welfare, and excludes companies that violate the welfare of the animals.
The down in our products is carefully selected in order to ensure that it comes from suppliers that meet the high standards required to ensure animal welfare. This is guaranteed by the RDS certification, which makes tracing possible. This means the products can be accurately labelled, allowing consumers to make informed and educated choices.
