“We have a common aim – we represent Swiss quality”

25 Apr

We would like to congratulate Javier Mendoza on 10 years of service in our warehousing department and thank him for his dedicated commitment.

“I’m in charge of warehousing – we store our textiles, down, feathers and packaging materials here……in fact everything we need. My job represents quality of life for me. I’m not just a number, I’m a person and part of a group with shared aims and interests – we represent Swiss quality. I really value my work colleagues. We work well together because everyone works in a team and we are very supportive of each other. We are all ready to make compromises to reach our common goal – happy and contented customers.

My direct supervisor always has time for me and he has a very flexible viewpoint when it comes to finding solutions to problems. In fact finding solutions is one of our greatest strengths – we see the problems but concentrate solely on finding practical solutions to them. This is quite simply the perfect job for me. I can even come to work by bike, something I’ve always wanted.”

From down to duvet – created with loving attention to detail.

18 Apr

We make every duvet as if it were our own, which means we start with impeccable hygiene.

This is of particular importance for bedding because the product and its user are in such close contact. Our skin touches the duvet for around seven hours a night, so constant hygiene controls are a must for our bedding.

A duvet can only feel good and be really cosy if we create the right mix of down and feathers. The different feather and down qualities are combined according to precise instructions in our mixing department. From there, we move on to the filling department where all the various duvet designs receive their fillings. If a duvet is to be quilted, it is taken to the quilting department while at the sewing station, all the textiles are cut and sewn. Once all these processes have been completed, the bedding moves along to the cutting room, where we check the duvets for weaving faults, cut them to the correct size and complete the production process.

Many duvets look the same from the outside. But what really tells them apart is the fill quality and covering materials. Whichever duvet you select, each duvet is created with loving attention to detail in true Swiss quality.

Why top athletes attach great importance to sleep

4 Apr

If you love sport and train a lot, then you know that the more intensively you train, the more sleep you need. Sleep doesn’t just help us to regenerate physically, it also has a decisive influence on our mental fitness. That’s because your cerebral cortex, which controls important basic mental functions like focus, speed of action, decision-making and your ability to concentrate, is active during sleep. If you get too little sleep, you notice the effects immediately – your basic functions are impaired, your performance reduced. Poor sleep quality or a lack of sleep increases your risk of illness and injuries, which also take longer to heal.

But getting enough sleep is just one part of the puzzle. You also need to sleep well. A great way to support the quality of your sleep is with a Climaactive down duvet  which uses active climate management and the ingenious Outlast concept to regulate climate throughout the night and create the perfect conditions for a deep and restful night’s sleep.

It’s you!

Spring lets her blue ribbon
Flutter in the breeze again;
Sweet, familiar scents
Drift with promise o’er the land.
Violets lie dreaming already,
Soon to be awakened.
—Listen, from afar the faint sound of a harp!
Spring, it is you!
I can hear you coming!

Why yawning shouldn’t be a cause of embarrassment

7 Mar

Do you feel embarrassed when someone catches you yawning? Most people do. We think of yawning as a sign of being sleepy, but it’s also a signal for our bodies and brains to wake up, be alert, or come back to the moment—a kind of gentle course correction. And yes, we yawn when we’re bored, but we also yawn when we anticipate something happening. Robert Provine, an American researcher, describes yawning as a bridge between mental states – from awake to sleeping, from sleeping to wakefulness, from attentive to bored, as a threshold to aggression or sexual arousal – simply to lead us from one activity to another. From “The Sleep Revolution” by Arianna Huffington.
