PACIFIC COAST FEATHER COMPANY

Seattle (888) 297-1778

The company introduces an extended line of irresistibly fluffy SuperLoft bedding to the comforter portfolio. Patented tufted design allows more fabric per stitched box which means the trademarked Hyperclean Pacific Coast down can fluff to the maximum. SuperLoft comforters provide more fluffy, enveloping comfort than traditional comforters assuring a blissful night's sleep.

Traditional true baffle box comforters employ internal baffles to create chambers in which down can expand. Pacific Coast Feather Co. has improved the three dimensional nature of these chambers by topping them with SuperLoft tufted corners — further enlarging each chamber. Down clusters have more room to expand and loft for enhanced fluffy comfort.

Truly unique and supremely fluffy, the SuperLoft Stratus Comforter features a pleating design that extends entirely around each sewn box. This technique more than doubles the height within each lofting chamber compared to the traditional SuperLoft comforters. Down is free to expand and loft within this comforter, creating an inviting bed that lofts and drapes around the sleeper.

The SuperLoft Comforter Collection features a patented Comfort Lock three-sided border to assure down stays in the sleep zone on top of the bed, rather than falling to the sides and bottom. Features include: 550 Fill Power Hyperclean Pacific Coast Down; 300 Thread Count Barrier Weave fabric; Allergy Free Warranty; 30 Night Comfort Guarantee. Sizes are twin, full, queen and king.

Also new: the Organic Cotton basic bedding line under the top-of-the-line Collection label by Calvin Klein Home. The full collection includes the Organic Cotton down comforter, traditional pillow and Euro square pillow.

The Organic Cotton product line has been certified for its organic cotton origins, and is filled with all-natural, eco-friendly white goose down. The traditional and Euro square pillows include an organic cotton inner shell covered by a removable organic cotton cover with hidden zipper closure. The comforter features a luxurious 20-inch baffle box design finished with a simple flat edge.

Also newly created is the Luxe Down Alternative basic bedding line under the Collection label by Calvin Klein Home. The product line features a fiber fill that mimics the insulating and lofting properties of down as well as a sumptuous 300 thread count Lyocell/cotton cover. The line includes a traditional style pillow with a 230 thread count inner shell covered by a removable cover with hidden zipper closure, and a 20-inch baffle box design comforter.

The Pacific Coast Feather Company is the basic bedding licensee for Calvin Klein Home. Basic bedding products include pillows, comforters, blankets, mattress pads and feather/fiber beds which are available in a variety of natural, synthetic and foam fill.
