Using feathers and down feathers is the most perfect and natural way to face the cold
It happens because of the special composition of the feathers: they are formed by silky and smooth filaments with intertwined air chambers. As a consequence, the body temperature is maintained stabilized, preventing from overheating.
Pato Rico has developed a whole process of feather treatment, from cleaning, to classification, sterilization and dust removal.
Following all the European standards and requirements, all Pato Rico products are subjected to a special treatment against the growth of mites, fungus and bacteria, preventing from breathing and allergic problems. Thus, they are the perfect choice for people allergic to domestic dust.
For us, the sustainability, the respect for the environment and the animals, are very serious matters, therefore, all the feathers in our products come from ducks used in food industry. We do not use duck feathers that have been plucked alive or overfed.
