Quilts of Denmark Hungarian Feather and Down Pillow review
A premium quality, ethically manufactured, anti-allergenic, supportive pillow – CURRENTLY just £52 (Dec. 2017)
THIS PILLOW IS SADLY NO LONGER AVAILABLE (SINCE HOUSE OF FRASER STOPPED ONLINE TRADING). WE WILL UPDATE THIS PAGE IF IT COMES BACK ON SALE.
I have only recently come across Quilts of Denmark pillows and have been really impressed with the high quality of their products and their ethical approach. Their Hungarian feather and down pillow is certainly made to the same high standard. This premium quality pillow feels nice and soft. It is well stuffed to ensure it offers good support. Unusually for a down and feather mix (and as a side sleeper) I felt I could probably manage with just one of these pillows which was great as they’re not cheap. The cotton cover and stitching on the pillow is also gorgeous, white, neat and clean. It is machine washable and feels like it is going to last a long time.
I would recommend that allergy sufferers take a look at this pillow as it is has the NOMITE certification. To earn the right to use the Nomite declaration the shell of the pillow must be so tightly woven that house dust mites are unable to penetrate, so dust mite and asthma sufferers can be reassured. I also liked the fact that this is a natural product with the Downpass and Downafresh seals of approval.
For those not aware, pillows with the Downpass label have passed ethical and quality inspections. You know they will be high quality products made with down and feathers that have been ethically harvested and come from a strictly controlled, traceable supply chain. Downafresh certification means the filling material of the product complies with European standards for feather and down – hygiene and cleanliness. The down and feathers will have been tested at a hygiene laboratory and their origin documented.
This is a luxury buy but well worth the current sale price of £52 at House of Fraser.
