Supreme Quilts has for many years only associated our down supply from the very best European suppliers like Aro Artlander, Weidmann, Sanders of Germany, Slowinscy and Kamyk Daunen to name a few, for combined industry knowledge exceeding 200 years.
Many, many years ago we used to buy downs from a Melbourne feather down factory but gradually found the quality not upto the high standards that we expected and wanted to sell to consumers. The down supply became very questionable, it was compressed and had a bit of a smell to it and no proof of its origin was ever supplied. It just didnt look right.
Around 10 years ago we partnered with John Monteith the former owner of Dyne Quilts in Adelaide. John has almost 50 years of industry knowledge and has fast become a great mentor for myself and a huge knowledge base.
Aro-Artlander is considered second to none when it comes to the feather and down industry. Located in Germany this year they celebrate 100 years in the down industry. Its a company with 100 years of experience in bedding production and many decades of membership in the IDFB (International Down and Feather Bureau), we place great value on the quality of our products.
Slowinscy have been a supply partner for a short period of time but are one of the oldest Polish Goose down suppliers in Poland.
Weidmann have been providing premium fabrics for 115 years, they are second to none in this area, its why we are privileged to be using their very best fabrics for our quilts and pillows.
