Hollander launches first down bedding certified by Asthma & Allergy Foundation
May 9, 2011,
Previously, the AAFA had only awarded the certification to synthetic or silk-filled bedding that met its standards.
"Now, with this new certification from AAFA for our natural products, it gives the consumers a much broader range of natural or synthetic products to choose from," said Beth Mack, Hollander's chief merchandising officer.
The collection includes comforters, pillows and blankets. Hollander also makes a synthetic line that has the AAFA's certification. All certified asthma and allergy friendly bedding is constructed with allergen barrier fabric and is made to withstand the recommended wash and dry frequency included with each product.
"Our testing finally provides a way to determine the level of allergenic proteins in feather and down products," according to Mike Tringale, vp at AAFFA, "which is a major advancement for the bedding industry, and a benefit to our patients and families."
