It all started in 2007 with the need for a natural alternative to down. Not a synthetic alternative, but a 100% natural alternative with equal or higher performance than down.
At that time hundreds of synthetic man-made down-alternatives were already available. Today there is even more, but all of them, polyester, PP and PET, are basically just a form of processed polymer or other synthetic plastic made of crude oil derivative ethylene. Its not environmentally sustainable, nor is it the best down-alternative out there.
There are down-alternatives that are environmental sustainable, guaranteed free from animal cruelty and also processed without the use of ethylene, as with the many synthetic man-made polyester fibers. The solution is to use what nature already created and perfect it, so it can be used in modern day applications such as bedding, mattresses and outdoor apparel products.
