Royal Eiderdown manufactures 100% environmentally friendly Eiderdown bedding & duvets, handcrafted in Skarð, Iceland. Since the settlement of Iceland, eider ducks have enjoyed the status of being a protected species, and the Eiderdown is gathered from the nests without harming the bird or the eggs; unlike other down gathering (e.g. goose) and manufacturing where animal cruelty has been a growing concern worldwide.
The birds are never disturbed, and are actually attracted to safe areas by the farmers who supply food and protect these birds from poachers.
This relationship between the wild eider duck and farmer has existed for generations and helps to ensure the continued existence of a beautiful rare bird and a valuable resource at the same time.
