Responsible Down Standard-certified products and TrackMyDown.com showcased at this week’s New York Home Fashion Market
New York, NY (September 28, 2015) — ALLIED home, the innovative insulation division of ALLIED Feather & Down, along with London Luxury, the leader in luxury and innovative utility home textiles, through their exclusive partnership, will showcase responsible sourcing, consumer-traceability, and insulation technologies at New York Home Fashion Market (NYHFM), Sept. 28-Oct. 1 in Manhattan.
The Trackmydown.com (TMD) initiative – the industry’s first comprehensive consumer-facing down-traceability website, that allows down users to see where their down comes from, as well as important information such as a verified fill power, cleanliness, and a final content analysis – will be featured at both the ALLIED Feather & Down and London Luxury showrooms. Both will also feature finished products, all of which are RDS product-level certified as well as part of the TMD program.
“The Track My Down program has been a huge success in the outdoor apparel industry, and we’re proud to now bring it to the bedding industry, in partnership with the leader in bedding innovations, London Luxury,” says Daniel Uretsky, President of ALLIED Feather & Down. “Responsible Down Standards certification is very important, but it doesn’t tell the consumer everything they should know about their down. We’d ultimately love to see all natural fill meet these responsible-sourcing standards, and we are equally passionate about bringing this information to consumers, where they can engage deeper with the product. RDS certification with the proprietary Trackmydown.com tool is definitely a win-win-win for the consumers, brands, and geese and ducks.”
“We are thrilled to be the first to bring RDS and Track My Down to retail, and we are doing it in a big way,” adds Marc Jason, CEO of London Luxury. “At London Luxury, we strive to be first to market with innovation. RDS and TMD provide retailers and consumers alike with a trusted seal of approval that insures the highest standards of quality, transparency, and the most important independent verification possible.”
Since the development of the tool with the outdoor apparel industry one year ago, the program has proven highly successful. ALLIED has worked with a number of prestigious apparel partner brands to launch the tool for the fall 2015 season with garments on the racks now. London Luxury is bringing this unique, proprietary tool to the down bedding market, with products hitting shelves in the coming months.
