100% Eiderdown fill. The world's most exclusive duvet; fit for Royalty
Exclusively made to order, these Eiderdowns are the genuine article, with down handpicked from fledged nests. What a way to sleep.
So you want to really, really, really treat yourself? Look no futher than Eiderdown. It's one of the world's rarest materials and makes for a truly luxurious duvet. But its scarcity isn't the only thing that makes it so special. Those plucky little Eider ducks breed in one of the harshest climates in the world, which means their down has evolved to be especially insulating. And it's that light-as-air and insulating down that creates such ótrúlegur duvets. (That's Icelandic for "incredible" btw.)
Features and Facts
Hand-Collected for Bedtime Bliss
Filled with 100% genuine Eiderdown, one of the world's rarest natural materials. 3/4s of the world's Eiderdown is collected from Iceland. The mother Eider ducks pluck the soft down from their breast to insulate their eggs as they incubate. Once the chicks have fledged and nest is no longer needed, the Eiderdown is hand-collected before being hand-cleaned and used as Eiderdown fill.
An Ancient Art
Eiderdown has long been prized for its delicate clusters of down that flex and lock together. It's the way the down clusters lock together like velcro that traps warm air as if by magic. Eiderdown collection is an ancient craft; remnants of Eiderdown have been found in burial sites from the time of the Vikings. And if it was good enough for those ancient warriors, it's certainly good enough for us.
Eider ducks are an endangered species and the collection of Eiderdown supports and protects the species. Their nesting sites are well-protected and the wild birds are treated with reverence by the Eiderdown collectors.
