Down Décor Debuts DownTek

CINCINNATI - Private label down bedding manufacturer Down Décor has extedned its hydrophobic and quick-drying down technology called DownTek into bedding. Down Décor originally introduced DownTek to the outdoor industry last year for apparel and sleep system categories now used by more than 20 international brands.
     Downtek bedding products are already available at Garnet Hill.
     Ellie Bliss, Garnet Hill's home division buyer, said the retailer has worked with Down Décor for more than a decade."Their workmanship and integrity are top notch. When they come to me with a new idea, it ends up that when we go through testing, it outperforms any of our expectations," she said.
     Testing administered by the International Down & Feather Testing Lab for independent analysis found Down Décor's DownTek water repellent down reduces the amount of water absorbed by 300% and allows for comforters to dry up to 67% faster than regular down comforters, according to the supplier.
     "DownTe k 's treatment reduces overall energy consumption, protects the quality of the down, is long-lasting, verifiably safe, adds no additional weight to the down and is remarkably effective," the company said in a release.
