THINDOWN®: Sustainable by nature

a strong eco-friendly identity

NIPI Italia, producer of THINDOWN® is committed to researching sustainable alternatives for brands and consumers.
For the first time consumers have the possibility to choose a natural insulation, encouraging a conscious choice for their wardrobe.


Down is a natural, biodegradable, renewable and environmentally friendly source. An alternative to oil-based synthetic materials, whose microfibres, cannot be naturally reintegrated in the ecosystem and accumulate in the environment.


THINDOWN® offers the same benefits and performances as synthetic, however using ethical and sustainable materials and processes.
The only production plant based in Chieti, Italy, is a highly sustainable and energy-efficient plant. The production of THINDOWN® generates minimum CO2 emissions into the air and does not involve the use of water sources or chemicals.

Responsibile Down Standard

THINDOWN® is committed to the ethical sourcing of down.
All THINDOWN® products made with virgin down are RDS certified.
RDS stands for Responsible Down Standard: an independent, verified and voluntary worldwide standard.
The RDS certificate guarantees:

• Responsible sourcing of down as a by-product of the food industry
• The tracing and signing of certification standards throughout any phase of the production chain, ensuring that the product is ethically sourced, contrasting the practices of live plucking and forced feeding.

The RDS protocol has been developed with the support of animal rights advocacy groups, industry experts, brands and retailers.

Compliance with environmental and social criteria extended to all stages of the production chain, including workers’ rights.

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent and uniform international control and certification system for raw materials, semifinished and finished products in the textile industry.

The purpose of the standard is to verify the presence of toxic substances in textile products, both for humans and the environment. The presence of the label grants that the manufacturer is certified as environmentally friendly both in the processes and in the factories, as well as tested to verify the absence of harmful substances in the product.

The extensive and strict list of requirements including, among others, the absence of:
• azoic coloring agents, formaldehyde, cadmium, nickel, etc.
• chemicals hazardous to health
• environment polluting substances

The OEKO-TEX® controls of toxic substances are divided into product classes, according to the intended use of fabrics and materials. THINDOWN® has reached the most stringent product class: Class 1, which certifies its compatibility with items intended for babies and infants.
