Downlite announced it has invested significant resources in its RDS supply chain in both Europe and Asia. RDS certification traces the down supply chain ensuring companies that the down used in their products comes from ethically treated geese and ducks.
“Significant demand for our RDS-certified down in both the outdoor and home furnishings market provoked us to expand our RDS certified supply chain in Europe and Asia,” Chad Altbaier, V.P and Business Development, Downlite. “This increased supply will assure our partners that they’ll will have the option of manufacturing products made with 100% RDS certified down.”
NEMO Equipment recently joined Berghaus in Downlite’s growing list of RDS-certified down partners. Altbaier said a number of additional outdoor and home furnishings brands are coming on board with Downlite RDS-certified down programs for FW17 and will be announced later this year.
