Choice of Downs
Down/Feather: 25/75 Grey Duck down is our preferred standard down of choice. It consists of 25% down, and 75% feather blend. This down blend works well on lighter fabrics. It is airy and supportive, even when used with heavier fabrics. 50/50 down, which consist of 50% down, and 50% feather blend. Are available for an additional charge. Be careful when using lighter, more luxurious down combination with heavy fabrics. The heavier fabrics will weigh on the lighter downs. The extra weight causes the finished product to feel empty. To compensate, over packing or crowding the down may be necessary in order to fill. This over crowding process eliminates the natural behavior of the down.
Tip: You should never overstuff a down cushion. If a firmer cushion is what you are looking for you might want to consider a different type of fill.
Poly Down: A Poly down cushions is made with two 25/75 or 50/50 down envelopes joined together. Four cushion tops are traced from the finished cushion covers and cut out of a high quality down proof ticking. Two envelopes are made by sewing two tops together with 2-3 channels in between each envelope to separate the down (larger cushions take additional channels) Then the two tops are joined together by a strip of ticking called the cushion boxing (boxing varies in width depending on thickness of foam used). The boxing makes a pocket for the foam core. High resilient top rated HR foam is used along with a resilient 100% polyester wrapping. The polyester wrapping helps keep the down lofty. Springs down cushions are also available. Smaller seat cushions are not recommended with poly down fill. Smaller cushions compress the down too much and do not allow the down.
Manufactures are always looking for ways to cut comers. Here are some ways they cut corners with down cushions:
- Cheaper less resistant down proof ticking are used.
- 90% feather 10% down combinations are used.
- Only two cushion tops are cut out of down proof ticking on poly down cushions. The two interior tops of the envelope and the channels use in between the envelopes to separate the down are made of a cheaper fabric that traps the down and causes it to cluster.
- 90% feather 10% down combinations is further reduced in quality by blending it with large amounts of polyester fiber. In most cases larger percentages of polyester used than down. This also cause the down to cluster and not flow properly.
- Poorly rated foams are also used.
Knops Upholstery not only uses the highest rated foam, but we also use the, down proof ticking with the highest tread count available. We use our ticking on all interior tops and channel to provide maximum flow for all of our high quality downs, clustering is not a problem.
