Why Hungarian Goose Down?
Hungary has been known for its geese for centuries, however they only became industrialised in the last 50-60 years. There are around 5 million breeding geese in Hungary, with the females producing about 50 offspring per year. Hungary’s climate with harsh cold winters makes it the ideal place for geese to grow thick down and feather, which has a uniquely high quality in comparison with the rest of the world.
The big difference between Hungarian geese and other geese is the size, Hungarian geese are approximately twice the size on average over other types of geese generally found in Asia. It’s because of this size that they are so popular as it makes for much larger down clusters and a higher filling power, making it the ideal fill to use in our bedding products. They are also a uniquely bright white colour as Hungary has a higher number of sunshine hours.
Hungarian Down also has higher recovery power than other down. Recovery power is a new measurement which indicates the down material’s ability to retain it’s shape, form and overall quality. Many factors attribute to why Hungarian Down has higher recovery power
- Special climate
- Free range breeding
- Green GMO free, fibre-rich feed
- Closeness of natural clean water

To keep your pillow fresh it is recommended that you fluff and air frequently. It may be hand washed in warm, soapy solution so long as it is rinsed well and you do not wring it out. It is important to dry without delay using frequent agitation and ensure the fill is completely dry. The best way to achieve this is using using a tumble drier on the warm setting. It is also drycleanable. This information can be found on the care label attached to each product we offer.
We aim to dispatch all orders the next business day after purchase. During periods of high demand it may take an extra day to ship items. All items will be shipped via NZ Post/Courier Post and tracking is provided by email as soon as they are shipped.
My daughter bought one of these for herself (with my visa) and is so happy with it. Love that it is quality- made in Dunedin, NZ. Thank you. We will eventually buy more.
Website stated medium firmness. This is the thinnest pillow I have ever used. It's pretty much useless. Unfortunately I bought 2 of them. Even stacking the 2 of them on top of each other there is still very little support. This should be advertised and ultra thin/flat
Hi Chris, thanks for your review. The pillows are filled to a specified weight for 50% down to give a medium height and comfort level so I am surprised and disappointed the pillows didn’t meet your expectations. I will be checking with our factory QA ,for that particular batch but my first priority is to resolve your issue. We'd like to help get something that suits your needs better so we will be in contact soon to try and arrange either some extra fill or another option for you. Thanks, Lucas Mills, Eiderdown.
