What is Hutterite Down?

Say Hello to the Hutterites!

If you are looking to add a bit of luxury to your sleep, a few more Zzz’s to your dreamz, look no further! You can catch up on your binge-worthy show of choice or curl up with your favourite book alongside your new Hutterite pillows and duvet!

First things first! Who are the Hutterites?

The Hutterites are a specific community of people who live on hundreds of colonies dispersed throughout the prairies of northwestern North America. These rural communities are self-sufficient in raising much of their own food sources much like the Amish and Mennonite communities.

Some of the many Hutterite colonies located in the Alberta prairies raise livestock as a main source of food for their community which includes hogs, cattle, turkey and herds of geese and ducks!

What makes Hutterite-raised geese and ducks so special?

It’s all about fill power!

Hutterite- raised geese and ducks provide high quality feather and down.  Since the Hutterites raise their geese and ducks as a primary source of food, they do not use growth hormones nor over-feed their livestock, but allow these birds to grow to full maturity as they are free to roam in the open landscape of the Northwestern prairies. Talk about living the dream! For this reason, the down and feather by-product are exceptionally longer, fuller, and loftier.

If you are looking for a luxuriously soft pillow and a fluffy, warm duvet that gives you that gentle warm embrace, the Hutterite Collections are just for you!
