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.
Finally a pillow that is not to thick, probably because it only has 450grams fill while most pillows have 600 grams fill, love the softness and very good bounce!
Out of this world , I have never had such an amazing pillow . It's so light but amazing support . It puffs back up in seconds and doesn't go hard after lying on it like most down pillows. I brought 2 but will purchase another 2
We purchased new pillows, as we'd had this style pillow for the past 10 years and loved them. The new ones didn't feel the same as the old ones, they were much firmer. Lucas Mills, the Sales Manager, was extremely proactive in working with us to get a similar feel. He paid for the pillows to be couriered back to the factory. Some filling was removed, making the pillows softer. They were couriered back to us the next day. You couldn't ask for better customer service than that, a 10/10.
Pillow is wonderful, I bought one from you guys a couple of years ago and absolutely love it so bought this one for my husband. The only issue is this latest pillow appears alittle smaller than my one. I didn't realise when ordering it that they came in different sizes! My mistake!! But they are awesome products and just love them along with my goosedown duvets, we are all set for the winter!! Another bonus is that they are made in our own country, New Zealand!! Just Wonderful!!!
These pillows were just what I wanted. Beautifully soft but with great loft. Delivery was very quick too.
