Some top quality goose down or feather bedding used in luxury down comforters comes from Canadian Hutterite farms. Manufacturers of luxury down comforters go to great lengths to purchase Hutterite goose down. Hutterites are members of a religious sect whose roots go back to 1529 in Moravia (the present Czech Republic).The Hutterite community of western Canada raises geese to full maturity outdoors throughout the winter, producing some of the most sought after goose down in North America.
Geese that grow up in colder climates produce more down to keep themselves warm. When the year's supply of Hutterite down has been sold out, top quality goose down from European and some former Soviet bloc countries is a next choice for luxury down comforters.
