Responsible Down Standard (RDS)

The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) (independently) certifies down and feathers against animal welfare requirements and tracks it from farm to final product. 


The Responsible Down Standard is an independent, voluntary global standard, which means that companies can choose to certify their products to the RDS, even if there is no legislation requiring them to do so. The RDS was developed and revised over three years, with the input of animal welfare groups, industry experts, brands and retailers. The standard recognizes and rewards the best practices in animal welfare.

Blue Ridge Home Fashions, Inc. made the choice to participate and meet the requirements of RDS by making a commitment to create and source products certified to the RDS. Blue Ridge has made a commitment to ensure the highest practices of animal welfare across its supply chains

We have also worked directly with our suppliers to understand each’s down supply chain and only work with suppliers and partners who have similar practices in place as we do, protecting the welfare of animals.
