RESPONSIBLE DOWN

Bernardo Fashions is committed to the Responsible Down Standard. We only accept down from RDS-certified farms for each and every one of our down-filled garments. This ensures that our down does not come from farms that live-pluck or force-feed.

 

TRACEABLE DOWN

Bernardo Fashions partners with  DOWNLITE, an RDS-certified down supplier, to guarantee that every down cluster used in our outerwear is 100% traceable. From the time the eggs hatch to when the feathers are plucked, 3rd party inspectors monitor the treatment of the birds to make sure it is entirely humane.

 

The bluesign® system is the solution for sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances right from the beginning of the manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for environmentally friendly and safe production. All Bernardo PrimaLoft® garments are bluesign® certified.

ECOPLUME™


EcoPlume insulation is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

  • Plastic bottles are crushed and shredded into small flakes.

  • The plastic flakes are heated and melted into pellets.

  • Pellets are then heated and drawn out into filaments.

  • Filaments are combined and stretched while being heated in order to bond fibers together.

  • The thicker fibers are torn and fluffed into cozy insulation.
