XXL Pure Down is the best down in the world
What makes us so sure?
Thanks to its nature goose down is the best possible filling for winter clothing or duvets. On the market, however, there is a wide range of down standards which vary due to numerous reasons. Animex strives for top quality and this way ranks at the very high end of the market pyramid. Ambition, though, makes you aim ever higher. It takes an effort or innovation to break through the ceiling and accomplish quality standards on a scale never seen before. With this attitude in mind we managed to achieve the unachievable. As a result, Animex XXL Pure Down was developed and it is the best down in the world.
What is Animex XXL Pure Down?
XXL Pure Down is Polish white geese down of top quality. It was created to meet the requirements of the most demanding producers in the world. It was eventually possible to achieve a unique and remarkable effect thanks to combining a high quality Polish product with rich know-how in the area of down processing and exceptional methods found only at Animex. XXL Pure Down is exclusive in terms of quality and performance. Our down, beyond any doubt, is the best filling material in its category in the world.
How is quality born?
Natural conditions and the location play a key role in producing high quality down and feather. The plumage that XXL Pure Down originates from is obtained from geese bred in Poland exclusively. The geese are reared on fee range farms which meet restrictive requirements ensuring animal welfare. Why is it such a critical factor? Only happy and free geese are able to develop plumage and finally down with such amazing performance results.
The anatomical view of a goose can be divided into so-called fractions. Depending on the body part from which the feather is gathered the parameters of the output material vary accordingly. Only few geese farms make an effort to divide feather into fractions. It is a time-consuming and expensive process but it allows to ensure top end product quality. At our company only best material from fraction A1, which are goose abdomen and partly sides, is processed into the final product (XXL Pure Down). It is because the plumage grown in this anatomical area proves to be of highest quality.
The unique technique
XXL Pure Down is a unique product on a global scale. It takes, therefore, an unprecedented approach to manufacture it. In our case it is the method of hand-selection. Large down clusters of best quality are manually separated from feather to be later processed into top quality down. The daily yield of a qualified sorting specialist is only 0.4kg of XXL down because it is a highly time-consuming process. We do realise, though, that the human eye and hand serve as best tools able grasp and separate even finest feather- a practically unattainable task for any automated processes. That is how our down scores almost 99 percent in the most demanding Japanese tests checking down content. It is a unique method applied only at Animex exclusively for XXL Pure Down.
This kind of creation is not meant to be art for art’s sake. It is supposed to bring actual benefits such as increased resistance to weather conditions to begin with. Better down equals improved thermal insulation. It is a practical feature especially for outdoor equipment which is frequently subject to extreme testing by the enthusiasts of the outdoor lifestyle.
Additionally, large down clusters are made up of long filament barbs which stick together. It proves to be the desirable feature of down-filled textiles. It allows to maintain strong connections between clusters and prevents them from penetrating the fabric, as well. It translates into the longevity of all sorts of fabric including polyester, cotton or silk.
Thanks to manual selection all, even the finest feathers are removed and it makes XXL Pure Down a fabric-friendly down product. It causes no perforation effect and it is found very reliable and solid. High-end brand producers whose value is building long-term relationships with customers esteem this feature very high. This brings us to a purely emotional notion associated with prestige. Integrating what is best equals utmost prestige. And that is what XXL Pure Down was created for.
We walk our talk
We do not expect to be taken at face value. Our XXL Pure Down samples are subject to external research and examination. The tests are conducted at independent and most recognised research centres of the trade such as IDFL or QTEC in Japan and they invariably confirm our top quality, which is practically unattainable for others in the industry. What matters most is the fact that our proven standards stand the test of time, consistency and scrutiny at each production stage. Only this way can such an extraordinary product as XXL Pure Down be called into existence.
