The use of the best raw materials is just as important to us as careful workmanship under the strictest ecological aspects. On the one hand, we implement these practices through high-performance production machines, and on the other hand, through qualified craftsmanship.
Certified sustainable bedding
Environmental impact, animal welfare and sustainability in general are very important to us. As a pioneer and innovative leader in the industry, we at billerbeck have been focusing for years on environmentally friendly products as well as resource-friendly and pollutant-free production.
This allows us to produce nature-oriented bedding that meets our requirements for sustainable products and is free of synthetic raw materials. Only renewable organic materials are used in the production process, as shown by our certifications from renowned institutes and well-known standards.
The “Global Organic Textile Standard” (GOTS) is one of the top certifications that a natural textile can carry. It stands for the best organic quality at every stage of the textile production chain and also requires compliance with various social criteria The entire sustainable production and supply chain is verified.

Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex®
We attach great deal of importance to the fact that all materials used in billerbeck products and purchased from trading partners are certified in accordance with Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex®.

We stand for ethically sourced down and feathers from agricultural livestock as a Downpass certified company. Products with the label guarantee that customers will not find material from live plucking or from foie gras production and that rearing is controlled. The supply chain is also transparent and traceable.
We do not tolerate live-plucking
For over 20 years we have been using down and feathers exclusively from animals that have not been plucked alive. The members of the Swiss Bedding Manufacturer’s Association are the only suppliers who have consistently not imported and processed live plucked goods since 1996, thus underlining our commitment to animal welfare.
