WHY DOWNLITE?

Superior Products  |  Facilities  |  Customer Base

DOWNLITE is America’s premiere manufacturer of down and feather bedding. A descendant of a 100-year-old feather processing company, DOWNLITE began to make down comforters and pillows in the late seventies. Today, DOWNLITE is recognized as the leader in quality and service and continues to be on the cutting edge in developing new and innovative bedding products. By continuing to invest in people, state of the art machinery, information technology, and quality control procedures, DOWNLITE is widely regarded as the most consistent and highest quality natural bedding company in the United States.

The key to our success is in recognizing that retailers and catalog houses are selling almost identical products. DOWNLITE gives customers a product that is significantly different from the competition. Additionally, our product line has been selectively expanded to include unique synthetic fills, such as the patented Primaloft®, that perform very closely to down.

Superior Products

It all starts with our down and feather fills, the cleanest in the industry. Our internal standards are far stricter than those set by the FTC and USDA, and we are universally perceived as the highest quality down and feather processor in the United States.

DOWNLITE also holds the patent for the PermaBaffle comforter construction. This comforter design is the best performing baffle box comforter available. Its inter-locking baffles completely eliminate down shifting, even during washing, while maintaining the loft and lack of ‘cold spots’ associated with sewn-thru box comforters.
