An unconditional affirmation of nature Almost exclusively natural production Quality and transparency at every level of production Great flexibility and individuality in the production Reliability with quality control (DIN EN12934) The claim to quality of “Made in Germany”


For over 50 years this medium-sized company has been following this motto and adding value to high quality feathers and down. The result is comforters and pillows to meet every requirement in all price categories. The complete range is based on loose goods. That means the pillows and down comforters are fi lled with the quality that can only come from loose goods. This fact allows on the one hand a large degree of transparency in the choice of the raw materials and on the other hand all the prerequisites for individual and fl exible work. The customer’s wish is our maxim.

This provision relies on the best: the best raw materials, innovative production technology and a comprehensive service for trade specialists and interior designers. This is guaranteed by the two managing directors Horst Schäfer and Karl Lamprechtinger and their highly effi cient sales force. They are experienced and reliable partners in the trade and are committed to “Made in Germany”.

 

IN THE BEGINNING IS THE DOWN


The Horst Schäfer GmbH feather and down bedding factory processes 100 tons of raw materials annually. Our good contacts with the classic raw material countries such as Canada, Alaska, Poland and Hungary guarantee the best quality down. The products are produced exclusively on the company’s own premises in Eching. Purchasing, production and sales are therefore all in one set of hands.

This guarantees the best quality with a large degree of transparency and flexibility.


Step by step to a quality product Pre-cleaning of the raw materials

The pre-cleaning machine separates the bedding feathers and down from coarse dirt and foreign substances.


Washing the down

Next the washing and spinning machine washes the feathers / down (approx. 70 to 100 kilo per load) with bedding feather soap.


Drying the down

The wet feathers / down are blown in a silo and then dried in a steamer at about 130ºC. All bacteria is killed at this stage.


Removing dust from the down

A cooling machine removes the fine dust from the feathers/down and returns them to a normal temperature


Sorting into categories

The 3 chamber sorting machine sorts the materials into different levels of quality by means of airflows. The down which is the lightest element is blown into the furthest chamber, the heaviest feathers into the fi rst one.  Different strengths of air fl ow enable sorting according to the different quality characteristics thus meeting the requirements of each customer in the best possible way.


Filling the types prepared

Finally the different qualities are filled into ready-made shells which are made into comforters or pillows, or into one or ten kilo sacks and sold as “loose goods”.


The quality levels of down according to DIN EN 12934

In “class I” only new products from water fowl are used for the fi lling (goose and duck quality). “New” means that the proportion of used products is not morethan fi ve per cent. “Pure” refers to the type of fowl and permits a maximum of ten per cent of another type (e.g. pure goose ..down: at least 90% goose down). The label also shows the percentage of down and feather.

The greater percentage is shown fi rst.With equal amounts the down is shown first.
