DOUXE cares deeply about the ways in which products are developed. The well being of our customers and suppliers, as well as the well being of the animals, is of great importance to us. The production process is designed to generate a minimal amount of waste and to recycle residues whenever this is possible. European certifications guarantee that DOUXE only uses down and feathers obtained in a sustainable way. Furthermore, our products are suitable for people sensitive to house dust mite allergy.
Egyptian Cotton Association Certificate
The aim of the Cotton Egypt Association (CEA) is to ensure that all items labelled as Egyptian Cotton™ are the real deal. Too many people are benefiting from the Egyptian Cotton™ name without meeting the very high standards that this high quality cotton has. In order to ensure that we can rid the supply chain of falsely labelled goods, the CEA has introduced a revolutionary DNA testing process. Capable of identifying the staple length of a cotton and whether or not it has been grown in the unique climate of Egypt, this DNA test now forms a significant part of our accreditation procedure, reassuring us all about the integrity of Egyptian Cotton™.
Down checked according to the zero-tolerance standard. Specifically, this means that customers can be sure that they will not find material from live plucking or from foie gras production in bedding, clothing or outdoor equipment. The rearing of the animals must be controlled permanently by independent third parties - even without notice. Products labelled with the DOWNPASS guarantee high quality and the certainty that down and feathers used as filling material are ethically sourced and come from tightly controlled and traceable supply chains. In addition, the quality of all products is monitored by independent testing institutes. Each individual sealed product filled with down and feathers, which have been audited to the DOWNPASS standard, can be traced back through an individualized verification number. This number can be found on the DOWNPASS label. For more information, please go to www.downpass.com.
The NOMITE certificate signifies that our products are suitable for people who suffer from house dust mite allergy. Because down- and feather-filled products offer excellent thermal and climatic conditions for humans, they provide a very poor habitat for house dust mites, which rely on high humidity to live.
