Best Quality Down in China

In August 2017, the China Badminton Association entrusted the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory (IDFL) and the Guangzhou Fiber Products Testing Institute (GTT), two authoritative testing laboratories in down testing, to test down and feathers from China, France, Hungary and Poland. 13 down samples were tested, and the results showed that among the 13 samples, the highest quality grey duck down from Wuchuan, China, with a bulkiness of 22.1cm

Definition of Down and Feather


Down is the light fluffy coating found beneath the feathers of duck and geese. Down is a three-dimensional cluster with dozens of soft fine filaments radiating from its centre. Down clusters expand or loft to fill space and trap tiny pockets of air within their filaments to create thousands of insulating pockets. The more down cluster a comforter contains, the higher it can loft generating more warmth.


Feathers are the rigid plumage found on the outside of ducks and geese. They have a flat appearance and are two dimensional in structure. The main purpose of feathers in bedding is to provide bulk and support.

Gaga-the Top-quality Down,not Live Plucking


We are in the south and have an excellent breeding base

Duck breeding is usually divided into free-range and captive breeding. The south is rich in water resources, and ducks are mostly free-range in rivers and lakes. There are many inland areas in the north, mainly in dryland captivity. The difference in breeding methods between the south and the north leads to the difference in the smell of down. Free-range geese and ducks that respect the natural life laws of animals, freely forage, swim, and bask in the sun have large feathers, light odor, and high fluffiness.

Ducks raised in rivers are mostly raised for more than 60 days. Adequate raising time makes the ducks have a high maturity, and the down has large tufts and high fluffiness. In the south, you will often see flocks of large white ducks swimming in the rivers.
Ducks raised in captivity in dry land are slaughtered for less than 40 days and their feathers are not yet plump, so their feathers are creamy yellow in color, with more heterochromatic hairs and poorer fluffiness. Due to the long time on dry land, the feathers are stained with more impurities and the smell is strong.


We strictly prevent live plucking, protect animals and protect the ecological environment!

"Live plucking" originated from the ancient custom of assisting goose molting in Eastern European countries during the shedding period, and only exists in very individual goose populations. Since it was introduced into my country in the last century, "live plucking" has not been generally adopted by the majority of goose farmers because it is contrary to animal welfare protection and high production costs.

Since 2009, with the attention and supervision of animal protection organizations and the call of the China Down Industry Association to "reject live poultry products" in the industry, the behavior of "live plucking" has been difficult to gain a foothold in China's down industry. land. Due to the continuous increase in labor costs and the increase in the mortality rate of geese caused by live plucking, no one is willing to do live plucking business anymore.


We have a professional down processing production base and experience

The main reason for high-quality down is the processing technology after the down is collected. It must be subjected to strict washing treatment. The raw materials of down are washed with detergents and disinfectants in clean water at a certain temperature, repeatedly cleaned, rinsed, dehydrated, and then dried and disinfected by high-temperature steam at 120 ° C for more than 30 minutes. The raw materials can be removed. The ash, feces, blood and oil stains attached to it can achieve the purpose of disinfection and sterilization to remove peculiar smell.

However, if the manufacturer simplifies the washing process in pursuit of low cost, shortens the washing time, does not use clean water sources, uses inferior detergents and disinfectants, or does not control the process parameters in place, and the equipment is not strictly cleaned and disinfected according to regulations, Wet warehouses and poor ventilation conditions will affect the effect of disinfection and sterilization to remove odors, resulting in a strong down smell.

The Strict Production Process

Each Process Ensures the Quality of Down Processing

  • One-time dust removal by the high compartment wool separator (using the principle of gravity, the raw fleece is first separated and dedusted by the high compartment wool separator as high as 26 meters);
  • Before starting the down processing and washing, the down raw materials are dedusted twice, and then the down is automatically transported to the washing machine through the pipeline. The technical master strictly follows the process requirements and uses environmentally friendly imported detergents for up to 15 times. washing and rinsing;
  • After washing, the down quilt is transported to a high-speed centrifuge for dehydration. After dehydration, it is dried and sterilized. It is required to be dried and sterilized at a high temperature of at least 125 degrees for more than 35 minutes to ensure that most of the remaining microorganisms and bacteria in the down are killed;
  • The high-temperature sterilized down is dedusted for the second time while cooling to ensure the cleanliness and hygiene of the down to the greatest extent;
  • Carry out the first iron removal. The down quilt after the first round of iron removal is transported to the six-compartment wool separator, and the down and feathers of different weights are classified and packaged by the principle of gravity again. Each bag of down and down corresponds to the production batch number, which is convenient for Carry out quality traceability management;
  • Before the down is packaged and shipped out, the remaining 2 iron removal processes need to be completed. Through the high magnetic iron remover, the iron powder, iron filings and other metal substances contained in the down and feathers can be effectively removed to ensure the safe use of the down. .
  • According to the customer's requirements, the down raw materials are piled up, and the quality meets the customer's requirements through various down tests in the laboratory.
