Frequently asked questions:
My cushions have a new feather fragrance.
Feather cushions may have an new frangrance when first unpacked, feathers are a natural product which have been commercially washed to high temperatures using detergents in the process. This fragrance is neither harmful or unpleasant and should take only a few days to dissipate.
My cushions have an unpleasant odour.
If you have washed the cushions or spilt a liquid on them, and they have not been dried properly, they will mold and mildew very quickly and be ruined. Also see care instructions
Is it worth the extra expense to have more down in my cushions.
This is a personal choice, the higher percentage of down in the blend the cushions will become softer plumper and more luxurious. Plumping is still necessary but not as often or as vigorous.
How long will my cushions last.
This is down to the manufacturer and what materials have been used, and how they have been constructed. Poor quality cambric will leak feathers very quickly, poor sewing of the cushions will leak feathers too.
We guarantee all our cushions for 2 years against faulty workmanship, but the cushions should last for many years after.
