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.
I had a neck pain earlier but this pillow saved my life !
I had the best customer service, my pillow was to soft for me so sent it back and had more filling added so now it's perfect. Such quick and helpful service thank you
Pillow to soft
Great fast service but was disappointed how thin the pillow is, no support at all
Eiderdown & Z Land Bedding
Hi Caroline, thanks for your review and sorry the pillow isn't to your liking. We fill our pillows to levels that we think best match the loft description, however pillows are such a personal thing that it's not always going to be right for everyone. When this happens we like to work with our customers to come up with a solution that works for them. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss upgrading you to the higher fill option for this pillow. Thanks, Lucas, Eiderdown
80% Hungarian Pillow
Bought it for my husband`s birthday. He say`s it`s fabulous. Do wonder if I should have got the firm. He wants me to have one for myself :) Great service arrived so quickly.
I have been using imported feather and down pillows for a while now and am pleased with my switch to the NZ made Eiderdown pillow. The pillow is light, quiet and has plenty of bounce-back. I am a back and side sleeper- the 80/20 is great!
